7 painfully simple outfits I like to recommend to my busy associates


Fun fact: I am that fashion person in my group of friends. You know, the one who is basically the soundboard for fashion. Yes, if someone needs advice in a split second, I am the right person to talk to. What can I say? I live for it. With that in mind, there's a question that seems to be asking me more than anything from my inner circle: What is a simple outfit that is fashionable but requires little to no effort to put together?

My answer? Well, TBH, there are some. I actually have seven painfully simple outfit formulas (made up of a maximum of three pieces) that I keep in my back pocket to suggest to my friends when they need something fancy by using items in their closets. But instead of chatting about it further here, I figured I'd offer a bit of visual inspiration below to highlight my A + on-the-go fits. Keep scrolling and check out my failsafe outfit ideas for a variety of occasions that will work well for any busy soul out there. Oh, I bought each look too, in case you want to add a few simple pieces to your arsenal as well.
