Fashion lover with occasional laziness? Have no fear, you’re very much not alone. Even the most well-dressed people sometimes just can’t be bothered.

Rejoice in your lazy-gal ways, because we’ve got you covered with these quick tips and tricks.

Get all the sparkle with none of the fuss

A sparkly top (with open shoulders especially) makes an impact. It will also work well with jeans, and thus becomes a brilliant outfit for any occasion.

A swing dress will save you

If you don’t have a good A-line dress in your cupboard, how are you even living?! Something knee length, which you can just throw on and go is of vital importance to the lazy girl wardrobe.

Choose simple linen and clean lines for instant chicness

Basic linen items with a simple shape and easy-to-wear silhouette might crease very easily, but will also make your look v. chic instantly.

Get a statement mini

Make the most out of your mini skirt by making sure it’s got an interesting finish or detail, see here a liquid-silver finish. Silver also goes with everything.

Denim shorts are evergreen and more versatile than you think

Remember how good a pair of denim shorts and a T-shirt were when you were a kid on summer holiday? Revisit the look with amped-up denim and a Bohemian-style blouse.

Get meshy

With all the grace of a long dress, but none of the stifling layers of heavy fabric or the fussy straps, the sheer dress is a winner. Thrown it on over a slip dress or jeans and T-shirt. Brilliant.

Shrug your shoulders

This trend has been around for a while, but certainly deserves a place in summer. Your exposed shoulders get some sun but you don’t need to fiddle with a strapless bra and bandeau top.

Suit up

If you do need to go to anywhere that requires formal wear, a printed suit might be your best bet – not too much thinking required. However, a T-shirt worn underneath is easier and cooler.

Sweat it out

A sweatshirt with a bold-graphic design or logo is a winner. When worn with a mini skirt and sneakers it’s a great outfit for running around all day in.
