Since we all have mornings where time is short and stress levels are high, we suggest having at least two emergency outfits (top, pants, shoes, statement accessory) ready for days you just don't have time to think about what to wear. Failing that, opt for something timeless and simple. A pencil skirt or tailored black trousers with a blouse or classic white shirt and round toe pumps can go a long way in looking pulled together. You may not have time for the wow-factor, but you will look professional, which is key.
Having a stash of products that do more than one thing is a must for mornings you need to get pretty, pronto. Think color that can be used on cheeks, lips and lids, products that contain adequate SPF and moisturizer with a hint of skin tone perfecting tint. To get gorgeous fast, follow these simple steps:
No time to shower? No problem. Use some dry shampoo to soak up any excess oil or if you can, give your hair a spritz of water, run your fingers through it and briefly blow dry to revive yesterday's style. If that won't work (or your bed head is out of control), aim for a low ponytail slicked into place with a light mist of hair spray. If yesterday's style can be revived, add some hair accessories to liven up your look without having to waste time wielding styling tools.
Even if your stress level is on high because of your harried morning, when you step into the office, do it with a smile. No one needs to know you slept through your alarm or had a rough morning. Rather than rush in, looking like a whirling dervish, arrive gracefully and radiating calm. You'll feel much better about your chaotic morning if it remains your little secret.
