Comfortable outfits do not need to be dull. There is always a way to transform your leggings, mom jeans, and ballet flats into a chic outfit.
Here are a few brilliant tips on pairing casual items to stay stylish.
Wear Clothes that Suit You
Fashion trends often dictate what we wear. However, that does not mean you should hold onto the pieces that do not suit you.
The clothes we wear impact how we see ourselves. Most importantly, they impact other people’s perceptions of us. Cuts, patterns, accessories, and colors reflect your mood and personality.
Therefore, if a super-fashionable item does not make you feel comfortable, it should not have a place in your life.
The most effective way to look chic is to combine comfortable clothes that make you feel good about yourself.
Pick Flat Shoes that Make You Feel Confident
High heels have long been considered the symbol of elegance. However, it does not have to be so. Comfortable shoes, such as ballet flats or sandals, can also look super-stylish.
For example, Chelsea boots are a must in your wardrobe. Pair them with maxi dresses, shorts, and straight-leg ankle jeans to achieve a casual look. However, make sure your jeans end well above your booties. Tucking them into your boots seems careless and harms the overall integrity of your outfit.
Classic Oxford shoes look good with loose pieces. If you want to feel comfortable and yet classy, combining them with an oversized coat, a maxi dress, or pants is the right option for you.
Choose Thick Heels
We all want a pair of high stilettos in our wardrobes. However, achieving Carrie Bradshaw’s iconic style is not always that glamourous. High and thin heels are highly uncomfortable and harmful for your feet and spine.
If you need to wear heels, consider replacing high stilettos with kitten heels, mules, or block heels. Apart from being highly comfortable, they are also trendier than stiletto and platform heels.
Most importantly, you can combine them in multiple ways. You can wear chunky heels with socks, mom jeans, and midi skirts. They can transform a basic outfit, look casual, and even help you achieve a highly professional look.
Use Accessories to Boost a Simple Outfit
To give your simple and casual outfit an instant boost, you need to invest in the right accessories. No matter if you are wearing a white T-shirt or the little black dress, they are black canvases you can project your mood and style onto.
All you need coordinate the right accessories with your outfit.
For example, a colorful hair bandana is an effective way to style a white T-shirt and boyfriend jeans without using jewelry.
Does your casual look seem unfinished? Combine your basic, monochrome outfit with an attention-grabbing leather bag by Atribut and put on a pair of sunglasses in the same color. Sometimes, the tiniest changes make the biggest impact.
Do the French Tuck
A French tuck is an easy way to make an effortless outfit, balance your proportions, and pull together different items.
To role a French tuck, all you have to do is tuck the front-middle part of your top into the front of your pants, leaving the rest hanging out. That gives your casual outfit a casual and effortless vibe while flattering your body shape.
The best thing about the French tuck is that you can do it with almost any type of clothes. For example, you can tuck a loose T-shirt into a high-waisted skirt. Or you can tuck an oversized knit into jeans to create shape at the waist.
Over time, it will be easier for you to find the perfect amount of tuck for the shirt. That depends on your shape, too. For example, if you want to cover your tummy area without wearing the top completely out, you can go for a draped French tuck.
Layering is a simple way to transform casual items into a fab outfit and create a perfect balance.
By adding layers, always pay attention to colors. Choose up to two color families and stick to them.
Also, mind the proportions. For example, if you are rocking an oversized teddy coat, make sure other pieces are slimmer.
