Have you ever stood in front of your closet on a weekday morning, running late, and wondered in a panic, “What am I going to wear??” Read on for a simple 4-step formula that will have you out the door in a flash – and looking like a boss!

Step 1: Grab a Flattering Dress

It can be colorful or black, printed or plain – but it must fit well, and be comfortable! (Bonus points if the dress has pockets, like the pink one below.) It’s worth investing the time to shop for a few dresses that fit perfectly, or investing the money to have them tailored. Your payback will be simple, stress-free mornings!

Step 2: Throw on a Topper

Add a contrasting jacket or cardigan to elevate your look immediately. (Plus, it keeps you warm in your freezing-cold office!) If your dress is basic black, go for a jacket in a bright color or print; ground an eye-catching dress with solid black, navy, or gray.

Step 3: Add a Statement Necklace

The only accessory you need when you’re short on time – looks dressy but feels easy!

Step 4: Skip the Shoes

Seriously? YES. Keep two pairs of nice heels – one black, one nude – at the office or in your car. Grab a pair of tights if it’s cold, then throw on your comfy walking/biking/driving shoes and get going!
