Okay, we all hate to roll out of bed in the morning, and if you have little ones (or not so little ones) to get off to school, it can be very tempting to throw on anything just to get them there. But if you don't have to go on to work, or as so many of us, you work at home and can wear whatever you want, are you guilty of looking, well, frumpy? Check out these celebrities who are known for their style on their morning school runs. What they have on is deceptively easy to put together, and looks very - put-together!
Above, Kate Winslet looks great!. Yes, she has an expensive handbag and Chanel shoes, but anyone can copy this look for much, much less! What to do: pin clean hair up in a messy bun; slip on comfortable flats (the Chanel look in ballerinas is so easy to find at almost all price points), and throw on a black short-sleeved dress. What makes this so simple is the shift dress (you can even try a knit polo style dress), bun, and shoes. Quick, and you'll still look fantastic.
Okay, it's Angelina Jolie. But look how simple: if you have long hair, comb it straight back and let it fall naturally. If you wash your hair every morning, all you need here is a blow dry that you do yourself, save the hot rollers or curling iron for when you get back home. One sweater, cashmere is ideal, a pencil skirt, and tall heels in black. The only real upkeep with skirts and dresses is keeping your legs waxed/shaved.
Jeans can look great and don't have to look like "mom" jeans. The key here is fit. They cannot be baggy in the rear, hips, or thighs. Jennifer Garner looks put-together with simple flats, a white tee, and a short black jacket. Her hair is simple. If you don't trust your locks to stay quite as sleek, pull them back in a low pony tail.Below, Claudia does the jean thing, too. Here they are slightly flared, but fit well in the rear, hips, and thighs. A simple button top worn over the jeans needs nothing more than a scarf and sunglasses to look chic. Again, don't think your morning hair will look like this? Pull it back in a sleek ponytail or a messy bun.
