Sometimes life gets so busy that sleep gets shoved to the bottom of our priorities list (even below “catch up on cat memes.” Guilty as charged). And I get it– work starts piling up, all your favorite stores are having online sales at the same time, then you start feeling anti-social so you just have to go out on the town. Before you know it the clock strikes 1, 2, 3 AM. Instead of preaching about the benefits of sleep and how to ensure you get more of it, because I honestly would be a blind woman leading the herd, I will provide you with my go-to outfits that will help you wake up after 5 hours of sleep and still look dece-piece.
1. Cut-Offs & a Crisp Clean Tee
I know the first impulse is to throw on a srat tee and gym shorts, but you can step up your look with even the simplest of switches. Cut-Offs are a girl’s bff because they are (or should be) just as comfortable as gym shorts. Paired with a clean basic tee (read: plain, striped, or cool graphics) and some chic sunglasses and you’re good to go. Heck, you can still even wear your sneakers if you really want.
2. Shift or Maxi Dress
Cut your dressing time in half by wearing half as many clothes! Find a comfy, loose shift dress that you know looks great, and you won’t even have to check the mirror on you’re way out the door. Throw it on, add some cute flats or Birkenstocks (cause apparently that’s a thing again.. maybe Tevas if you want to be really fashion forward) and you’ll look even better than you feel. It’s a one-hit-wonder.
3. Basically Anything Black
There is something about black that is just right. Somehow, it is flattering, classic, edgy and sophisticated all at the same time. Whether it is a black dress, romper, tee & shorts/pants, you name it– you really can’t go wrong with all black errthang. And don’t worry about looking “gothy,” so long as you don’t have an entire stick of black eyeliner on… but to each their own.
