How to create a stylish outfit in 10 minutes

1. Identify your foundation items

The key to anything in life is a good foundation. The same holds true for your closet. If you’re typically short on time, you need pieces that can be versatile and give your outfits structure.

 These are going to be pieces like deep washed denim, a structured blazer or a white v neck shirt that you are able to build an outfit around.

2. Choose a subtle statement piece

These are the items that are going to add some depth and interest. These are also the pieces that will let your personal style show through.

A subtle statement piece is my Asos sweater because it has these really gorgeous bell shaped sleeves in a beautiful rustic red. It grabs your attention without being overpowering which is perfect for an everyday look.

3. Frame your face

This is probably my favorite tip because it’s a small tweak that can make such a huge difference. When short on time I suggest throwing on earrings. It’s an easy way to accessorize and helps to frame your face.

Framing your face with earrings or a hairstyle immediately makes you look more put together and stylish. I went for a simple pair of gold hoop earrings that really complement my hair and skin tone.
