You’re late to work. You’re late to preschool drop-off. You’re even late to jumping on the Stranger Things bandwagon. (Still relevant, right?!) We got you. Here, ten outfits even the most stressed-out woman can get behind.

Button-down + High-waist Trousers

This look is pretty hard to mess up regardless of your figure or budget. Just make sure to hem or cuff your pants to show a bit of ankle. (It’ll look way more polished and slim you down.)

Get the look: J.Crew button-down ($78); Gap trousers ($60)

Tank Top + Midi Skirt + Neck Scarf

This super-simple top-and-skirt combo would be great on its own, but Julia Dzafic takes it to the next level by tying a silky scarf around her neck.

Get the look: Universal Thread top ($4); ASTR the Label skirt ($98); Rebecca Minkoff scarf ($35)

T-shirt + White Jeans + Jean Jacket

If you’re looking to take the guesswork out of getting dressed, stock your closet with staples that look good 365 days out of the year. Case in point: Ijeoma Kola’s white jeans and denim jacket.

Get the look: Make + Model T-shirt ($16); Loft jeans ($70); Levi's jacket ($65)

White T-shirt + Pencil Skirt

A pencil skirt paired with a perfectly pressed button-down can feel a little fussy. (Who has time to iron?) Swap out the blouse for a casual tee and the resulting look is refined while still seeming effortless.


Sleeveless Top + A-line Miniskirt

The beauty of a solid color A-line mini? Everything goes with it. We love Emily Byrski’s printed sleeveless pick, but a skirt like this would also work with a button-down, tee or light sweater.

Get the look: Equipment top ($178); Le Gali skirt ($39)

Short-sleeve Blouse + Pleated Maxi Skirt

Mark our words: Pleats are the new neutral.

Get the look: SP Black blouse ($49); Alex Evenings skirt ($139)

Jeans + T-shirt + Blazer

You’re not too busy to throw on your baby blues and a tee right? Add a blazer and you’ll look like a million bucks.

Get the look: 7 for All Mankind jeans ($99); Everlane T-shirt ($18); Banana Republic blazer ($198)

Midi Dress + Skinny Belt

Listen, we have no issues with a tent dress, but when we want to streamline our silhouette, a skinny belt is an easy and stylish way to go.

Get the look: Gal Meets Glam Collection dress ($178); Halogen belt ($35)
