There are days that women feel like dressing in their best selves, complete with the shiniest earrings and the highest heels. However, there are also days that they would just throw on whatever shirt they see first. On days like these, you would still want to look cute and feel comfortable. Even simple makeup will do. No one really wants to look out actually looking lazy. Thus, if you feel like you are having one of those days, here are 12 ways to dress on a lazy day.

Shirt + Light Trousers

For every woman that has an LBD in her closet, surely, she also has that white shirt that she can wear with anything in her closet. If you are running errands that day or meeting your girlfriends for a quick lunch and do not want to bother dressing up, opt for a clean white shirt, light trousers, and a pair of sneakers. Wearing this outfit would let you move comfortably while making you look good. No need to wear fancy accessories since this outfit requires a very casual and laidback look. You can wear your hair in a bun or down in a loose ponytail. You can also do a french braid to put some twist in your hair. Literally.

Shirt + Light Trousers

Not really in the mood to show any skin? Then wrap yourself in a cozy sweater and a pair of jogger pants. Whether you are heading out with your girlfriends or staying in the comforts of your home, this outfit would do. Plus it gives you the perfect excuse to grab your favorite sweaters! Jogger pants work like your denim jeans except they are more comfortable and breathable. They also keep your legs warm especially on cold days like during winter.

Leggings Shirt

Surely, every woman has a pair of leggings in her closet. Leggings are very versatile apparel and a must-have fashion essential . Feel a lazy day coming? Grab your pair of leggings and match it with your favorite statement tee. Put up your hair in a bun to complete your “lazy look.” This outfit can immediately make you look casual and ready on-the-go. It also takes a short time to put this look together since you would not be tinkering with belts or buttons. Wear your rugged sneakers or sandals to finish the look, whichever you prefer for the day.

Loose Sweater + Skater Skirt

Feel like looking girly but want to feel comfortable? Replace your jogger pants for a flowy skater skirt and grab your favorite loose sweater. The skirt will instantly make you feel good and look good even on a lazy day. Skirts have that power to make you look dressed without putting so much effort and thought on your whole outfit. Feel like taking your look to the next level? Wear combat boots that will make you look empowered and ready for the day.

mom jeans + shirt

History ought to repeat itself, or so they say. Who could have thought that vintage clothing would make a comeback soon? Mom jeans are the thing now . Ditch your favorite skinny denim for chunkier but trendier pants. These pants are so 80’s that you would feel like you are time traveling while in them. Mom jeans are easy to style because you would only need simple tees to wear with them. Opt for a comfortable shirt that will allow you to move freely. You can best wear these jeans with your shirt tucked in or, for a better pair, a crop top.
