We've all been there. You were supposed to have gotten in the shower twenty minutes ago, but you either overslept, or have five (hundred) things to do before you can even think about getting ready. Since today is not the day to waste precious minutes on an outfit decision, you need to rely on this no-fail ensemble.
Opt for a black shift dress ($58), always. Reach for one colorful accessory ($12) that will pop against the black, and layer with a blousy, oversized cardigan ($350). Slip on your ballet flats ($150) and don't forget a modern, understated watch ($200). (You want to make it seem as if you intended to be fashionably late.)
