Running late in the morning can lead to walking out the door in something less than flattering and leaving a giant pile of clothes on the floor.
To avoid this (even after hitting snooze several times!), it helps to have a few go-to fashion formulas that never fail you. The celebs do it!
SHEATH DRESS + POINTY SHOES
She’s an international human rights lawyer and Amal Clooney, 41, looks every inch the part.
Standing 5′ 9″ with a slender frame, time and again, the Lebanese-British beauty’s go-to look consists of a tailored, solid colored sheath dress paired with nude pointed toe pumps.
The simple and chic combination makes her look sophisticated, smart and like a total boss babe for a day on the job.
Takeaway tip: Stick with what you know works. A tailored sheath dress accessorized with pointed toe pumps always appears professional.
Tuxedo dressing: Kim Kardashian grew fond of oversize black suit jackets worn with nothing underneath
BLAZER AND NOTHING ELSE
She’s an international fashion icon with access to just about everything, but even Kim Kardashian has a look that she returns to again and again.
For someone who rarely (if ever) wears the same thing twice, the 38-year-old mom of four grew very fond of oversize black suit jackets worn with nothing underneath some time ago.
Whether she was attending a red carpet event, a fashion show or a conference, Kim donned a blazer (sans shirt or bra) with black pants, cycling shorts or a skirt.
Takeaway tip: Going from desk to date? Take your black work blazer for a night on the town by wearing it alone. Warning: a wardrobe malfunction is highly possible.
Her go-to: Whether she was attending a red carpet event, a fashion show or a conference, Kim donned a blazer (sans shirt or bra) with black pants, cycling shorts or a skirt for a period of time
Two steps: Ariana Grande is a big fan of wearing an oversize sweatshirt, jacket or tee (sans pants!) with pointed thigh-high boots
Her signature look: The Thank You, Next singer steps out in the look so often, it has inspired both memes and Halloween costumes galore
SWEATSHIRT + POINTED OVER-THE-KNEE BOOTS
Ariana Grande is a big fan of wearing an oversize sweatshirt, jacket or tee (sans pants!) with pointed thigh-high boots.
The ‘Thank You, Next’ singer steps out in the look so often, it has inspired both memes and Halloween costumes galore, not to mention Tatiana’s drag impression in Taylor Swift’s new video ‘Calm Down.’
Ariana has a wardrobe of boots and often color coordinates them with her top to create a monochromatic ensemble, or uses them to add a pop of color to her outfit.
And the 25-year-old’s signature look doesn’t stop there; she’s almost always sporting a high ponytail.
Takeaway tip: Pants can sometimes be optional! For a comfy and cute look, reach for a roomy top that extends beyond your backside and slip into over-the-knee boots.
Mane event: Ariana’s signature look doesn’t stop at with her clothes. The pint-sized star is almost always sporting a high ponytail
When it come to fashion, Bella Hadid has a favorite look: monochromatic.
By coordinating separates in the exact same color palette, the 22-year-old model always looks pulled together from head-to-toe.
While mixing prints can look a bit messy when done wrong, wearing a single shade, is a simpler, cleaner approach to putting a foolproof outfit together.
Takeaway tip: Avoid the struggles of mixing and matching patterns when you don’t have time to spare! Team separates of one color that have different textures for an overall tonal and interesting look that will never fail.
Easy, breezy: By coordinating separates in the exact same color palette, the model always looks pulled together from head-to-toe
ALL BLACK EVERYTHING
Jennifer Aniston, 50, rarely deviates from her signature color palette of all black.
Whether it’s a long-sleeve sequin frock, a floor-length gown or a leather above-the-knee minidress, the actress almost always opts for the classic and flattering hue.
She stays true to her style and love for the color by keeping the look simple with coordinating minimalist heels.
Takeaway tip: No matter where you are going, when in doubt, wear black!
