I may have waxed on the other day about making more effort and how to dress with purpose. But the reality is no matter how ideal it sounds, sometimes we just feel lazy. And that seeps into other areas of your life like looking lazy too.
For me, the perfect “lazy” day outfit has two components: it’s easy and it’s comfortable. Bonus points if it’s somehow oversize too. But even when we’re feeling like nothing but an oversized men’s shirt and leggings will do, we can apply the principles of dressing with purpose, and be armed with the perfect wardrobe to help us along the way. All we really need is some simple rules to get us through those lazy days. The secrets to “effortlessly chic.”
Want to look like that young starlet who is always oh-so-comfy and totally on trend too? There’s at least 4 things we can try to infuse some style.
1. Belt it
This dress has all the elements I want in lazy day style: It’s big, it’s baggy, it’s comfy and it’s easy. Something I can be a total bum in.
Add a belt, cute boots and a big bag and it’s still super comfy, but far more chic.
2. Accessorize big
I love a good shirtdress. It works over leggings in the fall, and on its own with sandals in the summer. Kick it up a notch by adding some bold accessories.
Add a colorful scarf and it’s not a plain old shirtdress anymore. Cute sandals and a nice bag finish off the look.
On its own, this dress doesn’t impress much. But for a laying-around-the-house kind of day, it fits the bill.
A tough leather jacket and some tights completely change up this look.
There’s nothing like a comfy top that can transition from PJs to daytime wear. Sure, it’s the epitome of lazy but hey, we’ve all been in a time crunch before.
Top off the sweater with another layer and an oversize bag and no one will know you’ve been laying around in that top.
4. Try great shoes
Honestly, with shoes like this, who cares if you’re wearing jeans and a white tee. Pick a pretty pair of showstoppers and let your shoes do all the talking.
