style journal | tips on how to look great and put together when you are short on time

Who struggles with having enough time especially in the morning to get dressed and look put together? Do you tend to run late because you can't figure out what to wear? Do you arrive at your destination feeling stressed because you don't think you look put together? The. struggle. is. real!

Here are some tips on how you can look great and put together when you are crunched for time to get ready. 

1. Pick out your outfit the night before. Well duh! We know that's ovi. But really, this is the easiest and surest way that you can cut down on your getting ready time in the morning. You already know what you're going to wear so it will just be a matter of putting it on.

 2. Keep it simple. Go for a classic look like slacks/pants and a button up or structured shirt with a blazer or cardigan and flats. Accessorize but don't over do it. Keep your accessories simple with stud earrings, a simple necklace and a watch. Also pearls are always a great choice. If for some reason you somehow think you may be over dressed or accessorized, remember this tip from style icon and legend Coco Chanel, “Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and take one thing off.” You can't go wrong from such sage advice.

 3. Wear something monochromatic. By keeping your whole outfit in the same color but different hues, there is no guessing on what coordinates with what color. But of course you can throw in a splash of color or pattern to add some pizzazz to your mono-chromatic outfit. Still, keeping the colors nice and even is not only easy to put together but also very sophisticated and chic.

 

 

4. Wear a dress, romper or jumpsuit.  Choose something that is one piece. Saaaaaay what? A romper or jumpsuit?!? We know, they are such a pain to wear especially when you have been drinking coffee or water all day and you just have to go to the bathroom many times. Yeah you sit in the stall peeking through that crack to see if people can see you in your undergarments as you do your business. Reality is, one piece outfits are easy for getting ready and that's what we are focusing on. You put on one thing and voila! you are good to go. There's no guessing on what top or bottom to wear with it. It's a one shot deal. Very important though, make sure they fit you well.  And don't forget to accessorize :)
