Whoever said that it’s easier to get up when the sun rises before 6 a.m. must not get out much. How many of us have had late nights that lead to mornings where all you can do is hit the snooze button repeatedly, hoping to squeeze out just five more minutes. Then you’re in a rush to get ready, throwing on whatever is within arm’s reach and hoping it looks good. Here’s how you can have one more drink and still look like you got a full night’s rest: Invest in a few shirtdresses. Yes, they happen to be a big spring trend, but they’re also great because you can throw them on and looked pulled-together with minimal effort.
Want a classic white style that isn’t boring? Topshop’s features pretty lacelike cutouts. Rather go for something a bit brighter? H&M and Zara both have bold floral options. And if you’re on the hunt for a good staple that you can wear day-in, day-out, & Other Stories’ classic black style will be your go-to. Scroll down to see some of our favorites.
