Hats, sunglasses, scarves, belts and hair accessories do make a huge difference and are something you should focus on in case you’re interested in adopting this fun, yet hassle-free style! Accessorize a relatively basic outfit and watch it transform from “standard” into something stylish. Casual chic style is always on trend, remember that!
#2. SAY “YES” TO FLATS
Dressing casual chic doesn’t mean that you have to give up heels although I must admit flats do fit in perfectly and are a great way to give those legs a break.
#3. BLING IT UP A NOTCH
Ah, the power of jewellery! Now I don’t need to tell you that every outfit looks best when accessorized with appropriate jewellery do I? Well, this particular style is based on relatively simple main pieces so you should definitely experiment with different statement pieces all depending on how “dressy” you want your look to be!
#4. INVEST IN NEUTRALS
Having basic pieces that can be mixed & matched, accessorized and layered is a key tip for pulling off casual chic style. A white tee dress, cross body bag, soft sand-coloured sweater, pair of trousers that can be worn with just anything… you know what I mean. Carefully chosen basics are your strongest weapon because you’ll be able to combine them in many ways, adding glam, boho, rock details to personalize and spice them up.
#5. TO A TEE
Speaking about dressing casual chic, how often do you wear tees? Well, get ready to fall in love with them completely! These relatively inexpensive pieces of wardrobe can be worn with chinos, jeans, leggings, cute cardigans or stylish blazers, allowing you to pull of many different looks yet feel comfy.
#6. INCORPORATE POPULAR TRENDS
Incorporating popular trends such as colour block, pastel, scarf prints into your style is easy and once you start layering and accessorizing your basics you’ll even notice that it’s budget-friendly as well. Your basics will transform as soon as you add a new trend piece allowing you to have fun and express your inner fashionista by keeping up with every trend you like.
And my final tip on casual chic style would be to layer and create outfits instead of just focusing on individual pieces. Blazer or Mac, ballet pumps and a chic bag, complete your look with a headband or neck scarf or a hat and you’ll get an outfit that’s laid back yet perfectly put together!
