There’s that point during the week (usually Wednesday or Thursday) when you absolutely cannot get out of bed. You hit snooze until the last possible minute and jolt awake in a panic. Your hair is greasy and you have zero time to figure out what to wear, much less take a shower. For those moments, this is the outfit you can throw on and head out the door without feeling like a complete mess.
Begin with a cozy turtleneck in a rich color like this burgundy Nili Lotan one that feels as soft as Drake. Should you want a similar look at a much lower price point, Zara has an equally nubby option. Pair with a skirt that hits you at the hips and ankle boots (plus tights, when it’s cold enough) and you’re good to go. And that greasy hair? Sweep it up and use a sleek hairpin.
Nili Lotan half cardigan stitch turtleneck, $995 at Nili Lotan; M.M. La Fleur Chelsea skirt, $210 at M.M. La Fleur; & Other Stories suede reptile embossed boots, $275 at & Other Stories; Sylvain Le Hen hairpin, $70 at La Garçonne.
