A Lazy Girl Guide To Being Stylish Because You Should Never Have To Sacrifice The Magic Of The Sweatpant

I don’t know about you, but some days I just don’t want to get dressed. So I’ve decided to put together a lazy girl style guide. It’s for those days when you are completely uninspired, or you hit the snooze button too many times, or you spent all morning trying to find that one sweater, and well, you didn’t find it.

Be prepared for those not so sunny mornings, and devote a section of your closet to easy and stylish pieces. No need to fuss with the three-piece outfit rule, this section focuses on items that instantly make an outfit — like that go-to jumpsuit, the classic white button-up, or the little black slip dress.

If you want to look stylish, but don’t have the time, go forth to see the key pieces that will give you standout style in no time.
