5-Minute Outfit Idea: The Perfect Winter Work Outfit for When You’re Running Late

For those mornings you oversleep before work, battle your closet in preparation for a night out, or simply need some extra inspiration on a Saturday morning, we are coming to your rescue with chic and effortless five-minute outfit ideas.

We’re all busy women, so even when you do have the time to try on everything you own (we’ve all been there…), that doesn’t mean you want to. That being said, with only five minutes to spare, no one should look like she just rolled out of bed either.


This morning, our work outfit inspiration comes straight from the Thakoon Addition fall collection. Layering master Thakoon provides endless ways to repurpose your favorite pieces and style old classics like new—and it will take you less than five minutes to pull together. Layer a chunky sweater over a fun mini and belt your waist for a more feminine silhouette. Slip your feet into a great pair of fall booties and you will not only look chic but also feel comfortable all day long!
