The harsh reality is that yoga pants are not always socially acceptable…yes, it’s true! Sometimes you just want to look cute, but don’t want to put a lot of thought into your outfit whether you’re always running late or you’ve had a long week. I have finally found the perfect (what I call) “lazy” girl’s formula to getting dressed quickly and to make you look put together. This is 100% possible. This type of look is on constant repeat for me and makes getting dressed super easy.
My Formula for the Perfect Lazy Girl Outfit
STEP 1: FOUNDATION
The most basic look you can wear is a t-shirt and jeans, but it is also a wardrobe staple. I am sure you already have these items in your wardrobe, and if you don’t it is a must-have. Splurging on a t-shirt is not necessary as any store from Walmart to Nordstrom will carry a reasonably priced t-shirt. My favorites have small slights on the sides so it makes it easier to do the half-tuck, which is the effortless cool way to wear any shirt or blouse. However, if you are willing to splurge on a shirt my favorite brand is Vince because the fit is really flattering and it is so soft. You can often find these tees on sale at Shopbop or Nordstrom Rack.
STEP 2: STATEMENT SHOE…that is comfortable
You kept the foundation simple so now you have to build up from there to make the outfit completely you and as I always say elevate the look. By adding a statement shoe you take this look from a simple tee and jeans to something more. Since I hurt my ankle a year ago, I really shifted my shoe focus from heels to flats. I always felt that a statement shoe had to be a heel, but nowadays there are so many flat shoe options that are not only comfortable but show-stopping. These Sam Edelman slides are my favorite shoe to add to a simple look because the metallic silver adds a fun element, and they are padded inside. So comfortable!
STEP 3: GO-TO HANDBAG
Add your go-to handbag that you know works with any look because there is a reason it’s your go-to handbag. This Dolce & Gabbana handbag is a no brainer for me because 1)It has a strap so I can easily wear it crossbody 2)It holds everything I could ever need 3)It adds some color to my simple look, but is still a neutral.
I encourage everyone to re-think the traditional neutrals. Even though this handbag is a light/powder pink, it is still neutral enough to pair with so many colors. The light pink bag adds a bit of color to my look and another element of interest, which is what we are trying to achieve.
STEP 4: SILK SCARF
The secret is out…silk scarves are my secret weapon to making any outfit look more elegant and put together. I have loved silk scarves from around the age of 16 and have been slowly collecting them. I was made fun by friends and family because they told me only grandmas wore these. Call me a grandma then because this simple accessory does the trick. You can find them in varying colors and patterns, and it is such an easy way to add some color to any outfit. I wear silk scarves with a t-shirt and jeans (like in this look), a LBD, or a simple blouse and skirt. These silk scarves have come back in fashion, and you can easily find them anywhere.
Do you have a go-to look for lazy days when you still want to look cute?
