This isn’t too good to be true, I promise. There are some trendy style tricks that can help take any comfy clothing and make it appear as though you actually got dressed. When really, who has time for that anyways?

To update any fresh out of bed look, try any of these five style tricks, and your outfit will be a whole lot cooler.

1. Tie A Jacket Around Your Waist

Tying a jacket or a long sleeve shirt around your waist is on-trend, and can make a dress or even just jeans and a t-shirt look a little more hip.

Plus, it’s great to have as a layering option for if it’s chilly out. Warmth and style. Two birds with one stone, you know?

2. Layer Jewelry

The trend of layering jewelry has turned into a statement that will be around for a while.

Layer rings, necklaces or even earrings to add a little edge to your style. You may not have taken a lot of time getting dresses, but you took some time with your accessories, and little things like that don’t go unnoticed.

3. Add Sneakers

Wearing sneakers with virtually any outfit is super in at the moment, and will make you look like you’re up with the times. A pair of sneakers are sure to add an instant cool factor to whatever you’re wearing.

4. Throw Your Hair In A Bun

Putting your hair in a top knot or even a half bun won’t take very much time, but will look so good when you’re done. That’s the best of both worlds.
