Outfit of the Week: A Cozy Sweater and Work-Friendly Skirt

Photo: Jody Rogac

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.
