I don’t want to call myself a lazy dresser per se, but I honestly think there’s no way around it, so let’s just say I’m a lazy dresser. Despite caring quite a bit about how I look and, mainly, what I wear, when it comes time to actually put together an outfit in the morning, I tend to find myself wanting to go with the easiest, fastest route. If I could always have my way, that would involve some form of jeans, a T-shirt, and whatever add-on essentials that season’s weather calls for every time.
However, seeing as I can’t wear the same thing every day and need to go about my life looking like I’ve tried to some extent, I’ve come up with some methods for keeping my inherent lethargy from coming through in my outfits—at least part of the time. So what do I do? Well, among other things, I invest in and keep certain items around that I know add polish to even the laziest and simplest of looks. Think long coats, structured bags, and more. To see what they all are and, of course, shop them, simply continue on below.
