11 Easy Outfits to Throw on When You're Running Late This Month

I don't know about you, but it feels like I never have time to choose an outfit in December. Between holiday parties and events, gift shopping, and family commitments, it's arguably the busiest month of the year, but it's also a month that coincidentally requires lots of different outfits.

I'm not proud of this but more often than not lately, I find myself with five minutes left to get ready, frantically throwing on the first outfit I see. Not recommended. But honestly, it's inevitable—sometimes you're just running late, and that's why having a mini arsenal of easy, fast outfit ideas is the key to a less stressful December.

While more of the below influencer-approved outfits are quite casual, they're also quite versatile and can be dressed up or down with a change of shoes, outerwear, and/or accessories. Scroll on to see what I mean and shop the best winter outfit ideas that Instagram has to offer.
