A casual day look is something we all know how to do, but how to do it well instead of just throwing on the first thing you find, is oh so important. Even if trainers or clothes with crater holes in them are your thing, it’s important to style them with intention. Casual outfits don’t have to always feature the obvious trainers/sneakers and jeans. Because you can even make them work with cropped trousers or by knowing how to style a blazer casually. Whether it’s a dress with plimsolls or a ripped jeans jumpsuit with heels, getting the causal day look right needn’t be so stressful. So here are some easy ways to do casual day looks right.
Choose Colours that Compliment Each Other.
Even if your casual outfit is a result of a lazy day or just a casual outfit for running errands, you can still look like you made an effort by choosing your colours wisely. Pairing monochrome pieces together or even colour blocking, will present a more intentional outfit and presentable look. This casual day look features greys in gradients, while the hints of red make the outfit look coordinated. Having a wardrobe uniform, like black, can also help you effortlessly put together great casual day look. This comes more easily with understanding your personal style.
Balance out the pieces.
If you’re wearing an overly loose fitting top, try pairing it with form fitting bottoms, in order to avoid create contrast. Of course, if you’re wearing a loose style co-ord set, an intentional look is created for you. Alternatively, if you’re wearing ripped jeans, avoid wearing a top with holes in it. For this look, to balance out the casual trainers, a fitted slogan tee and leather jacket work to add a cute feminine feel.
Wear a piece that effortlessly dresses up the look.
Adding a chic or sophisticated item to your look will easily show intention and that your outfit was meant to turn out the way it did. So if you decide to wear the pyjama trend top and bottoms, be sure to style it with an elegant clutch and heels. Even layering a sweater over a collar shirt works for a casual day outfit. For this look, a chic leather jacket means the difference between sports-wear and sports-luxe.
