You know those days when you roll out of bed at noon, can’t be bothered to do your hair, and want brunch,badly. Getting dressed in anything more exciting thana T-shirt, a pair of jeans, flats, and a sweater seems nearly Herculean at that point. 

But…we’re here to say you shouldn’t have to try any harder than that to feel good. Don’t stuff your feet into stilettos. Don’t try out that new trend. Just…don’t. For those decadently lazy weekend days, you can totally pull off the standby combo and still look your chic best. Ahead, we’ve put together five versions of this foolproof ensemble that still manage to preserve your fashion dignity without squeezing too many of your mind grapes. You can thank us later — right now, just get back to bed!


The Sexy Scholar — A sheer T-shirt can be worn with a cami underneath (or just your bra — get it, girl!), especially when you balance it with an oversized, nubby knit, loafers, and a satchel.

Pastel Dream — Get away with a loose-fit cropped shirt by wearing it with a pair of high-waisted jeans. We love a patent pair of pointed sandals (you can still rock them this early in fall!), but wrap everything up in a draped-front cardigan.

Sporty Spice — Wearing sneakers, jeans, and a T-shirt can look put together as long as you make sure that each are filled with personality. A blazer-cut knit keeps the polish level high.

Elegance, Undone — Dress up a T-shirt and jeans with a shirt made in a super-luxe material, cap-toed flats, and subtle (but flashy!) jewelry. Dark denim always looks more fancy than its lighter-wash brethren, so it’s perfect for any day where you need a fashion jump-start.
