Woman&Home reader, Sarah Liard is a busy single mom and teacher so mornings are chaotic and she never gets enough time to put some thought into what to wear. As part of our #5MinutesMore campaign with Clinique, we asked you to share your fashion advice and here are our five favourite tips:

Plan ahead – Take five minutes in the evening, once the kids are asleep, to lay out your outfit. Even better, plan your whole week’s outfits on the weekend for five less stressful mornings!
Shop smart – When you’re clothes shopping, buy items you know will fit in with your general colour scheme so that you can mix and match easily.
Accessorise – It’s amazing how one scarf or a statement necklace can change your whole look. Invest in new accessories each season to update your existing clothes.
Look for inspiration – If you have a few moments to spare, browse your favourite mag, Pinterest or Instagram for style ideas, especially the “one outfit, three different ways” features.
Get tech-savvy – There are loads of fashion apps out there that act as digital style assistants to help you organise and categorise your wardrobe. The apps allow you to photograph all your clothing, tag them based on colour and to plan outfits with built-in calendars. We love Closet+ and Cloth.
