So I know you want to look incredible all the time (and probably take pride in this). Some days, though, are just such a drag. Maybe it’s because you were an idiot and waited ‘till 4 AM to do homework for your 8 AM that day, or you watched all of Parks and Rec to get pumped for the new season premiere and forgot about your body’s need for sleep. But huddle up because I’m going to tell you how you can be a bum and not look like total shit while doing it. The basic rule to follow is don’t give up: it’s easy to succumb to soft, hideous sweaters or flip flops, but these tips will provide you with equally simple alternatives.
Tip #1: NO SWEATPANTS. EVER.
I know, I know, when you’re tired and look like a raccoon you don’t feel like wearing real bottoms. However, if you’re going to wear pants, might as well put on some jeans instead. You’ll look so much more put together and if you have the stretchy kind you will even feel just as comfortable after a little while.
Tip #2: Hats on Hats on Hats
Having a good hair day can make you feel a little like Beyoncé, while a bad hair day can make you want to avoid eye contact with every human alive. And of course the one day you don’t have time to do your hair, it looks like complete shit. Well here’s a quick fix – HATS! It can be a baseball cap, snapbacks (I enjoy these), fitted hats, even beanies! It covers the rag on top of your head and may even add some swagger. A Crap Day instantly becomes a Hat Day. This goes for you, too, gentlemen!

Tip #3: A scarf!
Throw on a plain white tee, a plain black tee, really anything that resembles a shirt; it doesn’t matter because once you add a scarf you will look less miserable AND be warm!
