If You're Lazy But Want To Look Good, Check Out These 40 Things


A cute look and a low-maintenance routine don't have to be mutually exclusive. Take it from me: I love clothes, makeup, and accessories a lot — but I refuse to spend hours getting ready every day. For one, I work from home, so few people will witness my efforts anyway. For another, I have a pretty regimented schedule, and I can't afford to agonize over an outfit. And, finally, I appreciate comfort, so if an item of clothing is scratchy or a grooming technique is painful, I probably just won't do it. That's why I really love easy things that make you look and feel good — without the excess effort.

So how, exactly, do you build a routine that feels low effort but yields impressive results? It's simple: Fill your life with versatile, single-step items that you genuinely can't wait to incorporate into your day. When it comes to your wardrobe, that means staple clothing pieces that are comfortable, durable, easy to care for, and can be dressed up or down. For accessories, that means belts, shoes, and hats that go with just about anything. And while you're shopping for beauty products, look for great ingredients in formulas you can apply in under a minute.

If you're ready to start simplifying your life without compromise, check out these 41 lazy hacks that still help you look amazing.

1. This Dress That's Been Called "The Perfect LBD"

I'm a huge fan of dresses. Why? You can wear them casually with a pair of flats, dress them up with a pair of heels, or go with boots and stockings when the temperatures start to drop. This Daily Ritual dress is a must-have wardrobe staple because it's comfortable and breathable thanks to the stretchy rayon jersey fabric — but the long sleeves and scoop V-neck still help you to look put-together. No wonder a reviewer has called it "the perfect LBD" (little black dress). Available sizes: X-Small - XX-Large

2. A Brilliant Pen That Lets You Stamp On Your Liner

If eyeliner takes you a while (it's not easy to get both eyes even, after all), this LA PURE eyeliner stamp pen is a brilliant investment. The formula is both smudge-proof and skin-friendly, but the real selling point is the built-in stamp that gives you a perfect flick every time. Each set comes with two double-sided pens, one for each eye.

3. A Top-Rated Denim Jacket In A Range Of Washes

In my opinion, a great denim jacket is the best layering accessory because it works with 90% of outfits. This one from Levi's is made from 100% cotton and comes in your choice of over 15 colors, from washed-out blue to stark white. It also has four functional pockets buyers say are big enough "to help you carry what you need without a purse." Available sizes: X-Small - 4X

4. This Casual T-Shirt Dress That Reviewers Want In Every Color

"I'm a sucker for cute and comfy clothing," one reviewer wrote about this Daily Ritual T-shirt dress. "If they had more colors I would get them all." It's made from luxe jersey, so it's smooth, breathable, and easy to care for. Even though it has a casual T-shirt shape and short sleeves that wear well around the house, you can easily pair it with the right accessories for a night out. Available sizes: 1X - 6X

5. This Polished Loafer That's Also Shockingly Comfortable

While this loafer flat is polished enough for work, reviewers report that it's also so comfortable, "it's like walking on a cloud." The faux-leather upper looks especially polished, while the suede lining breathes and the cushioned insole supports your feet all day long. Get the pair in three solid colors or the animal print pictured above. Available sizes: 5 - 13

6. A Maxi Dress That's Especially Great For Tall People

"If you are tall this is the best clothing line ever. I absolutely love this dress," one reviewer wrote. Another agreed, "Great if you're tall! I'm 5'10" and the length is the same as pictured." It's also soft, stretchy, and has side slits that set it apart from other maxi dresses in your closet. Available sizes: X-Small - XX-Large

7. A Hair Treatment That Works In 8 Seconds

Eight seconds is all it takes to transform your hair with the L’Oreal Paris Elvive treatment. It utilizes lamellar water to soften, boost shine, and repair damage — but it washes out like water (post-shampooing) for a totally weightless result. Best of all, any hair texture, thickness, or past color treatments can use it.

8. This Wire-Free Comfy Bra With 12,000+ Reviews

It's clear that buyers can't get enough of Warner's Easy Does It bra, but why? For one, even though it's entirely wire-free, it still offers plenty of support with its stretch fabric and subtle padding. For another, it's offered in a huge range of colors and sizes, and finally, it's thoughtfully made with adjustable straps, a U-shaped back, and extra-soft materials. "I am happy to never have to wear another bra again!" one buyer wrote.

9. A Ribbed-Knit Dress That Pairs With Almost Any Shoe

It doesn't get much more low-maintenance than this tiered tank dress (nap dress, anyone?), which washes well, keeps you warm, and comes in six solid colors that pair with just about any shoe in your closet.

10. This 2-Piece Sweatsuit In Nearly 20 Colors

Offered in nearly 20 different solid colors, this sweatsuit from PRETTYGARDEN has countless uses.

12. A Versatile Slip Dress In A Range Of Prints

Wear it alone with sneakers or heels, or throw a blazer over it for work, an interview, or a Zoom call. Some even say it's so comfortable, they "throw [it] over a swim suit" or wear it "as a night gown."

13. This Shirt That's Unique, But Still Easy To Mix & Match

This bell-sleeve blouse is one of my all-time favorite go-tos, because it elevates an outfit with minimal effort on my part.

Available sizes: Small - XX-Large

14. This Affordable Dupe For A Trending Silk Skirt
