We all have those days, the ones where we try on outfit after outfit but nothing seems to work. Our go-to dress just doesn't fit right, and that new sweater just isn't working. Luckily there are certain ensembles we always fall back on when we just can't figure out what to wear. These 14 simple outfits take advantage of the pieces already hanging in our wardrobes but give them a spin that feels unexpected. Suddenly those pieces we were ready to get rid of feel totally fresh.
Keep scrolling for our guide to these easy outfit ideas that will mean you get more time in bed.

Style Notes: Repurpose one of your favourite dresses by styling it over jeans.
So, so chic.
#6: Boyfriend Jeans + a Blazer

Style Notes: Don't underestimate the classics. Take a simple striped tee, and pair it with a trench for a look that never goes out of style.
Leave this undone for that nonchalant French styling approach.
#8: A Button-Down + Skirt + Sneakers

#9: Double Denim
Style Notes: Dare to pair denim pieces together, and dress in head-to-toe blue.
#10: Floral Dress + Flats
Style Notes: Florals are a perennial winner. Whatever the season, a do-it-all day dress worn with flats and sunnies will feel instantly chic.
High neck, long sleeves, mid length and ultra-comfy—this is a winning wardrobe piece you'll rely on time and time again.
#11: A Utility Shirt + Tee + Jeans
Style Notes: So easy, so chic—the utility shirt, tee and jeans combo is a fash-pack favourite, and it's the ultimate ensemble for when you just can't figure out what to wear.
Wear with a basic tee and jeans, or throw on over day dresses, Breton tops and jumpsuits—this is your wear-with-everything staple.
#12: Blue Shirt + Black Denim
Style Notes: The boyfriend shirt tucked in (or out) of your hero black denim is pared-back styling at its very best.
This is the perfect addition to your new-season off-duty wardrobe.
#13: Slip Dress + Basic Tee
Style Notes: We're not limiting this trend to the basic tee. Your mid-length slip dress will look every bit as cool slung over a grey marl knit or button-down striped shirt, too.
Raey has the perfect loose-fit shape that's ideal for layering.
#14: The Outfit-in-One
Style Notes: Every wardrobe needs an easy jumpsuit and should you feel unsure how to wear yours now, take your cue from Diletta Bonaiuti, ditch the trainers and wear pointed flats and statement add-ons, instead.
Now, wear your utility jumpsuit solo, and later, layer it under a roll-neck and team with ankle boots.
