Who doesn’t want more sleep without sacrificing on style? It’s summer and the name of the game is streamlined simplicity when it comes to getting dressed. Take our advice and even after a sleepless night you’ll be able to pull together no-brainer outfits that look fresh and put together. The key to achieving this is a bit of pre-planning (nothing too full on, don’t worry) and thoughtful purchasing.
1. Loosely Prep Your Week Of Outfits
Lay out five days’ worth of tops and bottoms ahead of time and you’re on your way to having a productive week where you look your best every day. Just the bare basics will do (ironed if they need it) and you can fill in the gaps the night before. This won’t take long and will clear valuable head space.
2. Work Towards A Capsule Wardrobe
3. Get A Hand Steamer
4. Only Own Quality Accessories
The difference between scrubbing up really well and looking just passable often comes down to investing in a good watch, well-made sunglasses and good-quality occasional items like a decent umbrella, proper leather weekender and matching laptop case.
5. When In Doubt, Choose A Classic
If you’ve had a rough night – whether it’s self-inflicted or you’ve been up with kids – the humble blue shirt suits all occasions and complexions. Pair with a suit and suddenly you’re looking alive for your corporate job. Throw on some jeans and you’re looking the part as a creative. Same goes for golfing chinos or casual shorts. How good!
