Wrinkle-Free Clothing

Ironing clothes takes a lot of time so we recommend that you invest in garments that are made of wrinkle-free fabrics. Your outfit should have least 65% polyester in order to make it low maintenance. The higher the polyester count,the less ironing you have to do. A combination of 5% spandex and 95% polyester won’t need any ironing at all. Remember, saving time is the most important thing in the morning as you have to get your kids ready and also make breakfast for them.

The Right Mix

Having many clothes means that you have to choose from a lot of options every morning. That is time consuming as well and you really don’t need loads of clothes to be stylish. The secret is to get your hands on the right mix of garments. Your pants, shorts, skirts and capris should be solid-colored, in classic style, or even having neutral or soft tones. You can go crazy with your tops and have variety but just don’t overdo it much. These clothing pieces are the core of your wardrobe. Keep on wearing these in different combinations and you will be good do go.

The Organized Closet 

Always take time to steal a few hours on the weekend to organize your closet. If you get this done once, it should be really easy to maintain. It’s always better to have garments arranged in two ways. One: by type of piece i.e. top or bottom. Two: by the color category i.e. cool, warm or neutral. This way you will be able see the colors and swiftly grab a top and the coordinating bottom.

We know that organizationis a very personal thing, so we urge you to feel free to develop your schemes that you find easy to work with.

The Go-to Hairstyle

The time of lose ponytails is gone. You now need to develop a more sophisticated hairstyle. The new hairstyle should not only be sophisticated, it should also be as simple as swapping out a tired hairband for a nice stylish clip. Just add a few pins, it you have time, to your pony and magically transform it into an awesome messy bun.

You can also experiment with a dry shampoo. Dry shampoos are nice and less time consuming. They also may assist you in getting more days of style in just one blow-dry. Now different people have different kinds of hair textures and if one thing works with one individual, it may not work with another. So if the texture of one’s hair makes a ponytail problematic, once can try wearing a nice cool hat. Boaters, Bucket hats, floppy hats and cloche hats are also all workable options. Just remember, fedoras and tams are an absolute no as such hairstyles are better suited for girls in their teens.

Doubt in Dressing

When you find yourself in doubt, just wear a nice blazer, a cool button-down top and a sober necklace. It’s a classic look that never fails. You can also make a signature look for yourself and carry on with it. Just make sure it is acceptable by the people around you and comfortable to you too.

At some point in the future, you will have to reacquaint yourself with a new signature look. Don’t worry much about it. It all comes with experience. But if you still find yourself struggling or don’t have enough time, it’s cool to copy someone else’s style. A word of advice: Just don’t consider the kid with cereal in her hair for hairstyle cues, no matter how cute she looks to you.
