In this lookbook, I will show you five easy outfit formulas. These are perfect for days that you just want to throw something on quickly yet still look trendy at the same time.

I’m going to show you that dressing well and looking good doesn’t need to be difficult with these easy-to-wear outfits.

Simple wear clothing

1. Khaki jacket with a white t-shirt

First up, I’ve paired some light blue skinny jeans with a white t-shirt because this is a timeless combination that you can’t go wrong with.

Really, any shade of blue denim would work, so if light blue isn’t your thing, feel free to go with a darker shade. I have slip-on shoes on my feet for an effortless footwear option.

Then, I’ve added a khaki jacket to this look which really is the game-changer. The army print adds some personality to this outfit, while the neutral tone of the khaki still gives a laid-back and relaxed vibe.

To finish off the look, I have a simple black crossbody bag.

2. Graphic tee with joggers

Up next, I’m wearing a F.R.I.E.N.D.S t-shirt. Throwing in a reference to pop culture in your outfit is always a fun thing to do, and it gives your look a playful vibe.

I paired the t-shirt with some black joggers for a casual monochrome look. Black is a really sleek and slimming color.

Finishing the outfit off are some white sneakers, a black backpack, and a bracelet. Throwing in a few accessories to mix keeps the outfit looking trendy.

3. Tie-dye with blue jeans

Tie-dye has made a big revival recently and I’ve definitely jumped on the bandwagon. Here, I’m wearing a tie-dye sweater in a soft, feminine pink.

I paired it with blue jeans for an easy, casual look, and on my feet are some pointed heels that elevate this everyday outfit.

I accessorized with a layered necklace which adds some sparkle, and a clutch in a deep pink color.

4. Leather jacket with an LBD

I’ve matched a little black dress with a leather jacket for something a bit more dressy yet still super easy.

I always like wearing black leather with black underneath, and the contrasting textures add depth and interest to a look.

On my feet, I have a pair of wedges, and I’ve also thrown in a big, black, roomy tote bag to the look. For a playful twist, I’ve put my hair in a high ponytail and have tied a silk scarf around it.

5. High boots with a mini skirt

Last but not least, I have on a cozy, fuzzy sweater in pale pink, and I’ve teamed it with a black mini-skirt and tall boots. I like the contrast between the short length of the skirt and the high length of the boots.

This outfit feels really cute and feminine. To accessorize, I have on a pair of gold hoop earrings, and I’ve tied my hair back so they can get all the attention they deserve.

There we have five of my favorite straightforward yet stylish outfits for those days that you just really don’t want to try. My top tip is to buy pieces that you adore and will make you happy.
