You know the feeling when you have roughly 10 minutes to get out the door and inconveniently have nothing to wear? Yep, us too. While we’re advocates of preparedness by way of night-before planning, sometimes the ensemble you picked no longer feels comfortable, the weather took a turn for the unexpected or you managed to spill coffee all over that white top because #rushing. Rather than appear mismatched (and not in a cool-girl way) or worse, totally disheveled, default to one of these five easy-to-assemble outfits guaranteed to save the day.
Running Late? You Can Still Look Chic
Keep a neck-tie blouse on standby as a quick way to dress up jeans—color-coordinated pumps complete the look.
Rely on a structured shirtdress and patent leather slippers to swiftly get out the door with polish.
A blazer with interest takes a T-shirt and jeans to the next level—team with suede heels for instant elevation.
A white button-down shirt is a fail-safe option no matter the combo—a midi skirt with subtle detail gives the illusion of a considered ensemble.
When comfort is key, a knit tunic looks great atop textured trousers—sleek accessories up the professional factor.
