If you're like us, on the evening of a big event you've undoubtedly tried on a series of outfit combinations only to end up flustered and 20 minutes late. (It happens to the best of us.) Never struggle with closet confusion again thanks to these genius pairings from famed designer Isaac Mizrahi.
In honor of our March partnership, #ShowUsYourLips, in which you can Instagram your best pout for a chance to win daily prizes and a grand prize valued at $1,500, we're making sure you have the perfect outfit—every time.
We gave Mizrahi five outfit scenarios and asked him to pick out the perfect look and matching lipstick, of course. From the ball park to a night out, take a look at his top picks to help inspire the ideal outfit your next outing.

The Look: Dark wash matchstick jeans, white boyfriend button down shirt, Lamis2 Basic Pointed Pump in Pink Floral and Pink lipstick
Why Mizrahi Says It Works: “This look is casual and chic—perfect for a fun night out with friends. Play up your accessories with a printed heel and pink lipstick!”

The Look: Striped boatneck tee, boyfriend jeans, sneakers, aviator sunglasses, Alison Crossbody in Butterscotch and Black and Cutie Pink lipstick
