Besides the fact that the end of daylight saving time signals impending dark winter months, we don’t have a lot of immediate complaints about adjusting our clocks. We’re instantly granted a full extra hour of sleep (and at this time of year, that’s a welcome addition to our weekend). In addition to racking up more minutes of beauty sleep, we can use that extra time to put together an ensemble that takes a little additional effort to style.
While we’re all for planning out your outfit the night before, practicality often strikes, and even fashion girls sometimes wake without a clue about what to wear that day. The extra hour affords you that extra time to rework an outfit. If you regularly find yourself rushing in the morning, too tight on time to try out some trickier pieces you've been dying to debut, Sunday is your day to go all-out thanks to the end of daylight saving time.
To help spark some inspiration, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite outfit formulas that require a little more effort than your usual stylish go-to. Use your extra time to finally suit up in the outfit combo you’ve been coveting, and step into standard time in an enviable ensemble.
