Fashion, Outfit of the Day

Chic Casual

Today’s look is what I refer to as “chic casual.” If you don’t yet own an ensemble like this, hop to it! Perfect for a mild summer day, or when the fog rolls in if you live in San Francisco, look like a million bucks in five minutes or less. Here is what you’ll need to accomplish just that.

 

Shirt with a Twist

Dresses, skirts, and jumpsuits are far more interesting than tops and jeans, if you ask me. That is why I have a sorry collection of the latter two. When I do purchase a top however, I always make sure it has funk factor. Maybe it has an off the shoulder neckline, or a peplum shape, catch my drift?! In this case, the pictured shirt is oversized and features a back slit detail.

Complimentary Jeans

When styling a boxy top, you really only have two options: skinny denim or skinny distressed denim. It is always a good idea to balance out an ensemble with an oversized upper half with fitted bottoms. There is something so aesthetically pleasing about neutrals on neutrals. That is why I paired this tan top with crisp white denim.

Layering Jewelry

Take your chic casual look to the next level with your favorite jewels. In this instance, less is NOT more. I layered with simple gold to compliment the neutral hues and wooden embellished Chanel purse. It’s amazing how the addition of a long necklace actually draws attention to the choker – that was not a typo, chokers are the “new” but old thing.
