My husband once said I was the fanciest casual person he knew. It’s not that I’m trying to be fancy, I dress in a way I am comfortable and if that looks fancy to someone than so be it. #youdoyou
I also feel like there’s a fine line between dressing casually and looking like you just rolled out of bed. Like it or not we are judged by our appearance and how we dress ourselves says a lot about how we feel about ourselves. So today I want to show you how you can dress casually but still be put together.
It does seem like as a society we are getting more casual – I’m lookin at you athleisure trend! Maybe it’s because more and more of us work remotely. Whatever the reason is I am happy to partake in the more casual vibe. That being said I am thrilled to announce that I have become a Brand Ambassador for XCVI. XCVI designs clothes for real women with real lives and I am all over that!
Dressing casually for me means grabbing pieces that look as good as they feel. I don’t want to be worried about fit or wear – (wrinkles, gaping, etc.). Fabrics that work well in my warm climate are a bonus. Another bonus? If the outfit can be worn with sneakers or a sandal. I like options.
This hoodie and joggers checks all the boxes for me. I am in love with the fabric – soft cotton that doesn’t cling or wrinkle. Drawstring joggers with pockets at a length that looks great with a wedge sneaker, flat sneaker or sandal.
Accessorizing is another way to add that final touch to a casual outfit. I think it’s what really brings a look together. Simple jewelry works well but even a statement piece will do the trick.
Here are a few tips to execute that casual yet put together look:
- choose items you feel comfortable in that fit well
- colors that you enjoy working will help you feel confident
- be sure your clothing is in good repair; casual does not mean it’s okay to wear ripped, torn, stained, or wrinkled clothing
- wear a little make up
- accessorize! Casual doesn’t mean you have to leave the jewelry behind
- feel free to wear something other than sneakers
