We’ve all been there, hitting the snooze button one too many times until you realise, the last time you hit it… you hit “Alarm Off.” I’m sure we can all picture it now: waking up in a mad panic fumbling through your makeup bag, throwing your hair back into what you hope is a slick, smart ponytail, trying to put together an outfit acceptable for your lecture in your head, whilst thinking “fuck it” and going in your cute bunny pyjamas because frankly it would save you some time. However with this guide there will be no need to contemplate the pyjama outfit anymore, here are 10 quick outfit ideas for rushed mornings!
1. The “tent dress” outfit
With one swift, minimal movement, you have an outfit right there. All you have to do is pull your dress over your head and there you go. You don’t have to think about pairing clothes together and furthermore, you don’t really have to accessorise it either if you don’t have enough time too. It’s a classic piece that is a gift on these rushed mornings. Pair this with a cute pair of trainers like Converse or Adidas Superstars and a tassel bag. You’ll look effortlessly chic and will be comfortable, no one would know that you’ve only just woken up.
2. The “always reliable dungarees” outfit
When waking up late in the morning, the last thing you want to do is waste time putting outfits together. Much like the dress, the dungarees are an all-in-one piece that doesn’t call for accessories to be added to it. All dungarees call for is a top of some sort. The beauty of dungarees is you can put quite literally any top underneath. From cozy jumpers to edgy slogan tees, patterned shirts to turtle neck tops, the list is endless. Pair with a boyfriend jacket (for those unexpectedly chilly mornings), some Converse and a backpack. Cool and comfortable.
3. The “Is that a famous blogger?” outfit
This outfit is a classy and chic, and amazingly you could put it together when half asleep and it’ll always look good together. It’s simply a white shirt and jeans. You can wear pretty much any jeans, whether they’re black, blue or embroidered with pretty flowers. Rest assured you’ll look fashionable whilst only having spent 5 minuets putting the outfit together. Add pointed ankle boots and a leather jacket to add an edgy vibe to your outfit.
Quick tip: tuck the shirt in, and if you have time, double up on necklaces adding a choker too.
4. The “double D for double denim” outfit
Some say it is a myth to make this work however I could not disagree more. Denim goes with just about everything, so why wouldn’t it go with itself? On a rushed morning you can be assured the double denim is the answer to all you outfit needs and what’s more, as denim does go with just about anything, you can class up the look with a striped shirt or you can make the outfit a lot more causal with a slogan t-shirt. The outfit calls for a pair of flat pumps just to tie it all together. Furthermore, another awesome thing about this outfit is that it speaks for itself and it doesn’t need any accessories added to it.
5. The “quick yet classic” outfit
You just can’t beat a t-shirt and jeans, a classic outfit that suits everyone. Whether you choose to have both a plain t-shirt and jeans or whether you choose to have one statement piece, the outfit is always going to look well put together and no one will know that you have just put this outfit together in the spare 10 seconds you had before having to leave for your lecture. To be on trend this summer opt for an across the body bag and some cute gucci-esque (because we’re not all millionaires) pumps.
6. The “ I wish I had comfy culottes too” outfit
No one can deny the comfort of culottes and sometimes when you’re in a rush, the last thing you want is to be dressed in uncomfortable clothes. That is why I think they are heaven sent on rushed mornings. Pair these with a band t-shirt and a denim jacket for a relaxed, grungy outfit that has taken barely any effort to put together. Backpacks and trainers always work for this outfit to further create that relaxed, grungy look.
Quick tip: Mix it up and swap the band t-shirt for a plain long sleeve top, for a more casual look rather than grungy.
7. The “Is that a shirt or a dress?” outfit
This amazing piece of clothing is basically two-in-one. Wear it simply as a dress, in one movement slipped over your head, you have the outfit right there. Slip on a pair of heeled boots (or a pair of trainers, in case you’re running very late and need to run to university) and accessorise with a skinny scarf. You have one outfit that you can literally put on as you run out of the door.
However should you have just a couple more minutes, add a pair of jeans to this look, for a more casual, street style look that will look very modern and rather elegant.
8. The “roll in and out of bed” outfit
Undoubtedly, the most comfortable of all the outfits listed on here… and what’s even more amazing is that this outfit allows for you to go back to bed in it after your lecture (should you need to of course.) The bigger the sweatshirt the better it will look, and opting for mom jeans will give the outfit a real 90s vibe. It takes only moments to throw on your favourite sweatshirt and pair of jeans, so really you can afford an extra 5 minuets in bed…you deserve it.
9. The “darling denim” outfit
Denim skirts will always be a must for rushed mornings, mainly because they go with just about everything. Sweatshirts, turtlenecks and best of all slogan tees. Furthermore, you can match any of these outfits with any shoes, from a pair of pumps to trainers, to even ankle boots in some cases.
10. The “art of deception” outfit
This outfit is the ideal one for the art of deception. You’ll look as though you spent forever putting this outfit together when in fact, it is so simple and takes seconds. You’ll be sure to look extremely smart and very chic. Choose to go for a statement pair of Peg Leg trousers for example, a grey checked pattern and keep the top plain. Wear trainers for comfort and style for this outfit and be sure to wear a boyfriend jacket to pull off the boyfriend-chic look.
Quick tip: swap the plain, long sleeve top for a band tee or a slogan t-shirt for those days when you’re feeling more grungy than smart.
