There are days when your happy hormones are kicking in and you want to put in all the efforts that you can muster and look your most glam self. But let’s face it, that’s not always the case. There are days when you are running late, struggling to get out of the bed, or just feeling sluggish. If you are going through similar days when you want to put in minimal effort yet look stylish, then this one is for you.
We have compiled a list of the only hacks you will need for days when you are feeling lazy yet you want to look your best.
1. Ditch the makeup routine and choose a lipstick and mascara.
A lipstick can elevate just about any look. Choose your favourite lipstick and watch how your entire look feels well-put together. You can use the same lipstick shade and use your fingers to add a flush of colour to your cheeks. You can skip the winged liner and the eye makeup and just opt for a mascara that will open up your lashes and make you look fresh.
2. Get a dry shampoo.
For days when you feel that a greasy scalp is ruining an entire look, use a dry shampoo. The dry shampoo will suck all the gunk and make sure that you don’t look like you slept with oil in your hair. You can let your tresses down and have fun.
3. Or, opt for a sleek bun.
In case you do not like the feel of a dry shampoo, use that greasy scalp to your advantage. Get a fine toothed comb and tie your hair up in a neat and sleek bun. You will get that snatched look effortlessly without hair gel and hairspray, all thanks to an oily scalp.
4. Never underestimate the power of an earring.
If you decide to wear a plain t-shirt with jeans, add a pair of statement earrings and watch how it completes your look. A statement earring, jhumkas, hoops, and even studs can do so much to make you look your best.
5. Jackets are accessories.
For days when you just cannot think beyond t-shirt and jeans, throw a denim jacket over it. Or you can pair any basic dress with a well-tailored jacket and live your boss-girl dreams. You can roll up the sleeves for an even polished look.
6. Go for neutral colours.
Choosing a colour is another added task which we would all like to avoid on a lazy day. Opt for neutral colours like beige, mocha, tan, brown, gray, olive, sage, etc. These minimalist colours work well in formal settings as well.
7. Add some fun quirky printed socks.
A really effortless way to lift up your outfit and your mood is to opt for colourful, playful, and quirky printed socks. The quirkier, the better. These socks will add an element of fun to an otherwise basic outfit. You can pair these with sneakers and have the prints peeking out from below, or pair them with sandals.
A lazy day should not stop you from looking gorgeous.
