5-Minute Outfit Idea: An Easy and Chic Office Look to Kick the Post-Holiday Blues

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’re coming to your rescue with chic and effortless five-minute outfit ideas.


We’re easing back into the post-holiday work schedule with a little inspiration from the folks at J.Crew. High-low dressing aficionados and layering masters they are, so it seems only appropriate to take a cue from their styling team this morning. Don’t put away your holiday party skirt just yet—pair a slim but festive skirt with a more casual chambray button-down. With less than five minutes of thought, you will be ready to face the workday and look great doing it (even if you’re still dreaming of vacation!).
