5 "Thoughtful" Outfits That Won't Take Forever to Put Together

We all usually share one common goal when getting dressed: to ultimately look put together. Yes? Thought so. That said, sometimes crafting that polished yet cool outfit is easier said that done—especially when you’re racing against the clock and don’t have an extra second to dream up a forward look.

But don’t let time constraints weight you down. It’s actually quite easy to come up with a thoughtful-looking (aka well-styled ensemble) if you just keep a few easy outfits in the back of your mind. Ahead, we’re showing five of these ’fits that won’t take forever to put together. Go on—you won’t want to forget these.

Dress + Jeans + Boots

Wearing a dress over jeans is seemingly high-concept, but basically takes no effort to put together. Incorporate a statement pair of boots to bring the look to the next level, and you're done. 

For a low-key yet polished vibe, grab your blazer, and pair it with a turtleneck, wide-leg trousers, and white sneakers for a chill feel.

Now, this is one ensemble you'll never want to forget, because it's so simple with just two pieces (minus the shoes, of course). Grab your colorful sweater and favorite printed skirt, put them together, and go. We'd suggest tucking in the knit slightly as well for a flattering look.

For an easy yet cool outfit, don't underestimate the power of skinny jeans and a graphic tee. The key here is to add a unique outer layer like a cropped cardigan to tie the entire look together.

While it may seem simple, adding a leather jacket to any look adds instant texture and sophistication. Try one with a white tee and printed pants, and you're all set.
