3 Perfect 5-Minute Outfits To Try On Your Lazy Days

Sometimes fashion is all about flair, a more is more mentality, dresses made of meat, and heels 6-inches high. But not on TGIF. Today we're all about keeping it classic but still sophisticated. Sure, we like to stare at over-the-top street-style looks, but we also have a deep appreciation for outfits that are a bit more… erm… easy to pull off. Because of that, we've chosen three noteworthy street snaps for you to copycat now. We promise that with just a few key items (the right blazer, an awesome clutch, and a little patern), you'll be able to duplicate these super-chic but oh-so-easy looks in five-minutes flat.

When you're feeling kinda lazy and thrown together, it's great to let your jacket do the work. An all black and white outfit instantly becomes purposeful and chic with an awesome coat. Bonus: you can wear the same bold topper over and over again and never be called an "outfit repeater." Try it while the chill's still here!

Pretty soon we won't need tights under shorts — but in the meantime, layering up is a great way to stay chic and warm. Try out the girl-next-door-goes-schoolboy look with a shrunken blazer, oxfords, and a fun necklace to jazz it up and keep it feminine. Our Fashion Assistant Willow Lindley tops it all off with a classic pair of sunnies to match.
