How to Create a Classic Casual Look

Creating looks on a day-to-day basis can be a bit hectic and overwhelming. Even, scrolling through your Instagram feed can be daunting with those picture-perfect “outfit of the day” posts. Yet, I’m here to help you create an amazing classic casual look, fitted for almost any outing (list on outings below).

Now I recommend you head over to your closet to pick out the 6 pieces listed below, that you probably already own. At the bottom of this post you’ll find similar pieces to the ones I mention, with links to where you can buy them. 🙂

Here is what you’ll need to create the look:
  • Your best pair of leggings or jeggings.
  • A chambray shirt or even your hubby’s and/or boyfriend’s plaid shirt will work.
  • Ankle booties or open heels will work (fingers-crossed it’s not freezing where you are).
  • Your favorite classic handbag to hold all your must have items.
  • A lovely rose-gold watch…my fave color this season yet you can use whatever color you have.
  • A lovely pair of classic earrings…I prefer small studs.

*Quick Tip: Just don’t forget to pick colors that will play nicely together.

Now here’s a list of where you can wear this outfit to: 
  • After work happy hour with your colleagues
  • Sightseeing around the city
  • Coffee and/or tea shops
  • Shopping
  • Casual work environments
  • Super casual eating spots like brewpubs (my fave)
A few other ways to style these pieces:
  • Women’s Chambray Shirt – Wear it over a tank as an open jacket or throw on a sweater for a preppy look.
  • Stretch Denim Leggings – Wear them with a long tunic or a high-low top with a moto jacket for an edgier look.
  • Ankle Booties – They pretty much work with everything; a dress, jeans or shorts.

I hope this looks is as effortlessly for you as it is for me.

    That rose gold watch is too cute! I also love the layout of your blog, it's very clean, simple and professional. I would love your advice on how you achieved that!

      Hi Maddie! Thank you so much for stopping by! I actually wanted to control the look and feel of my blog so I customized most of it. I would suggest going through your blog's platform to see if they have a template that might fit your blog's style & voice. I will say that some blog platforms restrict how much you can customize unless you purchase a template. With that in mind, I suggest to check out the reviews and comments about the template, check out how fast it loads and how much you can customize on it. Once you find the perfect template you can start to change the fonts, colors and add widgets to make it more personalize to your blog. I hope this helps you! Happy Blogging! -Myra
