These 6 tips will take away that dreaded feeling and make getting dressed in the morning easier!

6 Tips to Make Getting Dressed in the Morning Easier

1. Pick out your outfit the night before
If you’re feeling really ambitious you could pick out outfits for the whole week, but at least don’t go to bed if you don’t know what you’re going to wear for the next day!

If you’re aiming to pick out outfits for the whole week, pick a day that fits well into your routine or create one! A Sunday would work great as you get your looks ready for the coming week. You could weave it into a “self-care” night too and do a face mask, hair mask, nails, or whatever it takes to make you unwind and feel good for what’s to come. Life will feel way easier because you’re looking your best and all prepared for what’s to come!

2. Have a list of go-to outfits
Sometimes figuring out what to wear is the hardest part. Spend time making a “uniform”, or a list of the go-to outfits that you love and know always work. Idea: skinny jeans, tee, blazer, & flats or click here for more ideas. For work, it may be dress pants, heels, and a blouse. Once you find something you love, get different versions of the same look!

3. When in doubt, pick a piece that shines on its own
For last-minute emergencies or days where you just can’t even, pick something that doesn’t need a ton of thought or looks great without having to do much! Like a jumpsuit or a dress. All you have to do is add shoes and you’re done.

4. Try on the outfits you pick out
Sometimes I’ll lay in bed and have the outfit picked out in my head, but when it comes to trying it on the next morning I’ll hate it! Either the colors don’t match like I thought or it looks weird together. This takes me back to square 1, so don’t be like me and make sure you try it on to make sure it looks the way you want!

5. Keep clothes on a mannequin, clothing rack, or special hanger
Once you’ve picked it out and tried it on, you’ve got to keep it in a place that is easily accessible. No hunting last minute for those accessories! This is about making life easier after all.

6. Keep track of the winners!
You went to all this work to find an outfit and if you love it? Don’t forget it! Find a way to keep track of these looks to repeat them, whether it’s an album on your cellphone or physically printing them out in your closet.
