Since my days as a Style Coach consist of client meetings to closet cleanses and shopping trips in between, I am often opting for a comfy yet chic ensemble. Many of my clients frequently ask, “How do you pull off a casual look that is still pulled together?” If you’re like my clients and myself having a closet that lends itself to casual wear is a must. I encourage my clients to think outside of activewear when having an errand running, lunch date or playground kind of day.
Check out my casual outfit roundup from my Instagram and style tips below! (You’ll notice that I often mix and match third pieces — curating your closet with items that can be worn in a variety of ways is a must!)
Style Tip: Elevate jeans and a tee with a fun third piece and a pendant necklace. Never settle for just basics—add some personality to your look with texture, color, print and accessories. These basics will become work horses for you as they can be dressed up (see picture) or down.
Style Tip: A vest thrown over a tee or sweater is such an easy way to pull your look together. Vests are particularly fabulous as they can be worn most of the year as they add interest without too much warmth. And don’t hesitate to use the color wheel for mixing and matching colors, like burgundy and navy, to create fresh, new outfits with ease.
Style Tip: Here’s my vest again! From a sweater and distressed jeans, to a silk blouse and pendant necklace, see how versatile a vest can be for you. Try throwing a pop of print, like animal print, into a predominantly solid outfit for added interest.
Style Tip: Denim jackets are back! Toss this layering piece over anything! Like a vest this is a lightweight third piece that can be worn most of the year. I love one that has great shape and stretch to it to ensure it’s flattering and versatile. Don’t forget to always roll up the sleeves for a more effortless vibe.
Style Tip: And once again I’ve tossed my denim jacket over my daily look to pull it all together. This time with a fit and flare style dress. Stylish sneakers are very in, and my go to for comfort and style, so try a pair for yourself!
