You can call it whatever you likeâ€”the Mondays, the pits, a funk or the moos —but everyone knows that feeling you get when you wake up certain mornings with a total lack of inspiration. It makes you want to turn off your alarm clock and sleep away the doldrums, but sometimes youâ€™ve got to pull yourself up and get on with the day.
But guysâ€”resist the gym pants! You donâ€™t want to start a terrible snowball effect where you start dressing blah because you feel blah and youâ€™ll then act blah because youâ€™ve got on a blah outfit. Bad blahtitude all around :(
So hereâ€™s what you do:
Comfort comes first
At least for me, gross days are usually going to be filled with running around and being tired so the last thing I want to put on is something tight and restricting. I like slouchy tops in interesting shapes (and cuffed boyfriend jeans) for something that feels good on, but doesnâ€™t look pajama-y.
A well placed statement necklace and a comfortable trendy shoe will instantly make an outfit much more interesting. You can get away with wearing plain pieces if youâ€™ve got the accessories to punch your look up.
Too tired to shower? Then itâ€™s the perfect time to don that new hat youâ€™ve been wanting to wear or tie on a headscarf a la Prada â€˜07. Couldnâ€™t possibly take off your sleepshirt? If you dare, pull on a jersey mini underneath and top it off with a blazer. No time for makeup? Wear some sunglasses. People will look at you funny indoors, but at least you can shoot them stinkeyes from behind your shades and theyâ€™ll never know.
On non-blah days, start thinking ahead about emergency combinations and pieces thatâ€™ll look good regardless without much effort. When your brain feels like cotton and youâ€™ve got five minutes to dress, youâ€™re going to thank yourself for coming up with something beforehand.
