You know those days when you have a zillion errands to run and dressing up in a cute outfit seems like the last thing on your brain? (Yeah, we have those too!)

Well, a day full of errand-running and chores doesn't have to be a day without style. That's right, you can look good even on your busiest of days with actually very few steps. In fact, Ashley Tisdale showed us how it's done on Tuesday when she stepped out looking oh-so-stylish in a super-simple combo: a graphic tee and boyfriend jeans.

You too can master this effortless afternoon look with just three easy steps!

1. Go for a quirky tee.
We're loving how Tisdale opted to forgo a designer blouse in favor of a tongue-and-cheek "Célfie" graphic tee by Sincerely Jules. (See, you don't need to wear Céline to look like a million bucks!) Simply making a statement with either the design of your tee or the cut of it can instantly take your look from boring to chic.

2. Get good denim.
This may seem obvious, but good denim is a must. Tisdale mastered this with a pair of boyfriend Everit Kick jeans by AllSaints. This particular pair had just enough of a distressed look to keep them on the casual side, but their funky cut gave them an added element of style.

3. Accessorize.
Accessories are the key to Tisdale's look. Sure, we love her "punny" tee and cute jeans, but what really made this look were the awesome accent pieces. A gray denim jacket tied around the waist added an extra layer and visually made her jeans-and-tee combo more interesting. A pair of studded Christian Louboutin slingbacks gave edge and texture while ruby red sunnies added a pop of color to the ensemble.
