You have 20 minutes to get out the door and head to the office before you’re late for work… again. And you have no idea what to wear.
Before you close your eyes and pull the first pair of pants and blouse from your drawers (or before you’re tempted to wear yesterday’s outfit and hope nobody notices), check out these five-minute outfits, perfect for when you’re really pressed for time. These outfits are so easy to put together, but they’re still on trend and stylish.
Quick outfit inspiration for work
Dresses are the easiest thing in your closet, so when you’re running late for work, this is the time to pull one out. Pair a sleeveless dress with a cardigan and a statement necklace and you instantly look like you spent a lot more time thinking about your outfit. Pull everything together with black opaque tights and matching booties.
Quick outfit inspiration for evening
Need to head out for a girls’ night? Or decided at the last minute to go on that date? Don’t worry. You’re prepared, even if you don’t feel like it. Pull out an embellished sweater or a fancy sweatshirt, black skinny jeans and a pair of print heels (I love my leopard ones). You’re instantly put together. The black skinnies are perfect for any nighttime occasion and the not-so-simple sweater is both casual and elegant, getting you from drinks to dinner or your favorite night spot. Leopard print heels are a great option if you’re pressed for time. Treat them like a neutral! Your outfit will be fashionista-approved — and it only took you five minutes to put it together!
Quick outfit inspiration for daytime
This five-minute outfit is great for seeing that friend who’s in town and just asked you to meet her for brunch in 15 minutes. You won’t go wrong with a sweater and distressed boyfriend jeans. This outfit is the definition of “laid-back cool.” Throw on some booties and wrap your favorite long-sleeved blouse around your waist to keep things interesting. Finish the look with two dainty necklaces. Voilà! You’re ready for whatever’s next!
