Lazy, Homeless, whatever your parents call you when you walk downstairs before going out to dinner, here are the clothes that are going to make your wardrobe look a little more put together. Minimal effort required.

1. Jean Jacket

Jean jackets are my favorite thing to wear with leggings and a loose t-shirt. I have two right now- one oversized from American Eagle and one slightly more fitted one that I plan to put patches on and embroider a little bit. They’re super versatile, warm, and trendy without being too much of a fashion statement.

2. T-Shirts: White, Striped, and Fun

T-shirts are the lifeblood of my wardrobe. I’m not huge into tank tops and I like blouses for special occasions, but on a regular day there’s an 80% chance that I’ll be in one of these. The first one from Gap is THE BEST WHITE T SHIRT PERIOD END OF SENTENCE. I mean that. It looks great, lasts a really long time, and fits like a glove. The other options here are also ones I’ve tried and loved. Clad and Cloth is a great place to get shirts like these from- not too pricey and really cute basics. The third option is just cool because it says Support Your Local Girl Gang, and you should.

3. White Sneakers

I own the first and third options here, and highly recommend them. The Nike pair are really comfortable for walking long distances in and make your calves look small because they’re a little thicker. The middle pair from Vans were my second choice when I was picking a new pair of white sneakers, and I’ve heard are really great too. And then Converse, which everybody will eventually own a pair of at some point in their lives. Mine are two years old, and disgusting, but I like ’em.

4. Good Jeans: Boyfriend, Skinny, and Boot Cut

Jeans are my favorite thing to buy and wear. I like to invest in them (and by that I mean around $100, not something crazy like $250) because they fade slower and last way longer if you don’t get them from, like, Forever 21. American Eagle is a great place to get on trend jeans that you may only wear for a season or two, and are where the boyfriend fit example are from. I own these and they’re super comfortable and cute, just go a size up. The middle pair are my favorite pair of jeans I own, and I’ve restocked now three times. That’s like 6 years of brand loyalty. They’re high waisted, a great color, and the fit stays perfectly through the wash. The last pair I also own, and are just a good fit for when you want to be comfortable but not leggings-comfortable. Boot cut jeans are actually making a comeback, though, so these might turn into a trend pair.

5. Booties

Booties are an addiction of mine. I have brown, taupe, and black all in heeled and no heel. I wear the heck out of them throughout the fall, spring, and winter, so I always tend to shell out a little more than usual so that they last. They go great with leggings, skinny jeans, and dresses.

6. Loose Cardigans

I could fill a whole closet with just my cardigans, I own so many. I love how soft they are, that you can just throw them on if you get a little chilly (which I always do unless it’s like 90 degrees outside), and how easily they can make an outfit just a little cuter.

7. Simple Accessories

I really only have four accessories that I wear, and I wear them every day. It’s a disc necklace, a brown leather watch, and a pair of sunglasses (because I don’t want eye wrinkles and you shouldn’t either!!!!) Sometimes I switch them out, like a black watch and a silver necklace if my outfit is more that color palette but basically this is as far as it goes for me.
