When it comes to celebrity styling, Rachel Zoe is undoubtedly on top of the game. But, this pro also gets the day-to-day dressing woes of those of us who have a subway platform, and not a red carpet, to work with. And, her recent interview with HuffPost Style was chock-full of grade-A Zoe advice, including how to show your personal style some TLC even when you're crunched for time.
Our favorite takeaway from the stylist-cum-designer was how easy it is to look more put-together when you're getting ready in the morning. According to the expert, five minutes can do wonders — whether it's touching up your makeup, brushing your hair, or changing into a comfy (but cute) pair of flats. We'd use that extra five to trade out our schlubby tee for a graphic-printed number, toss on a few extra-special accessories, or add a swipe of orange lip color. However you use it, that wee increment of time could go a long way.
Head over to for more of her career tidings, summer must-haves, and biggest shopping don'ts. We'll be over here setting our watches five minutes ahead. (HuffPost Style)
