How to Look Put Together Fast

If being a mom during COVID-19 has taught us anything, it is that time is of the essence. Somehow, putting ourselves together has never been more difficult, and the fact that we have nowhere to go means we also might not feel the need to bother.

That being said, events always seem to be cropping up last minute (such as a Zoom call you completely forgot about), and with everything going on, it is important that we still make ourselves feel like humans, and pry ourselves out of our sweatpants.

So, with this in mind, let’s take a look at some tips and tricks that will help us look put together in no time at all, even with the children at home.  

We Are Not Leaving the House at the Moment—Why Bother?

How we look directly influences how we feel. It can be as simple as wearing our favorite top or a new piece of jewelry that makes us feel ten times better. And this year, we need all the help we can get! Instead of slogging around in the same hoodie you have worn for six days in a row, take some time to make a small effort—because a little goes a long way! 

Accessories Are Your New Best Friend

Accessories are one of the cheapest and most convenient ways to spruce up your entire outfit and help make you look put together almost instantly. Statement earrings and necklaces are both very popular choices for adding that final touch, but for those who like to be a little more understated, a simple hoop or sparkly studs will work just as well.

Monochrome for Effortless Style

Monochrome is a color scheme that almost everyone can get on-board with. It suits everyone, looks chic, matches with anything, and looks sophisticated without trying. Whether you are a petite shape or are looking for designer plus size clothing, a monochrome color scheme will flatter anyone! 

Simple Classic Make-up

Another trick for looking well put together is classic makeup. Think “your skin but better” foundation application, a neutral and flattering lip color, mascara to enhance the lashes, and some bronzer or blush to tie the whole look together. This should take no longer than five minutes, but can make an exceptional difference to our appearance and helping us look like we have had more than a couple of hours of sleep!

Change Your Hairstyle

It is amazing what a change in hairstyle can do to switch up a look. If you often wear your hair up, why not try a down style? Or experiment with some braids? There are now so many simple tutorials online, which are quick and easy for an everyday look but make such a big difference. 

Switch Up Your Shoes 

Most of us will have one go-to pair of trusty shoes we know we can rely on day in, day out, but if you feel like you’re in a bit of a fashion rut and want to feel more put together, a swap of shoes might just be the ticket to change the whole outfit and your mindset!
