OOTD: Casual Day Wear Look

I like the casual day wear trend especially in the summer. Most times, I find it too warm to look all dressed up so I settle for the casual day wear look and it suits my lifestyle just fine. Here are some tips to have in mind when experimenting with the casual day wear look:

 

Go for Quality

I always go for quality but I pay special attention to my casual day wear pieces because I wear them a lot. Cheap fabrics will fall apart quickly in my hands so I go for the best I can afford every time.

 

Dresses at the Ready

A dress isΒ  a great all-purpose, wear anywhere, anytime outfit, so invest wisely. Go for jersey fabrics, they drape beautifully, feel good and will flatter almost every figure.

 

Accessorise Smart

Don’t go overboard with big sparkly jewellery with casual day wear pieces. It would look too much. Keep the accessories small and understated so you look effortlessly chic. A simple scarf, sunglasses, a small bracelet or necklace would do if necessary.

Shop Smart

Don’t just buy clothes or accessories because you like them. Have a plan for every piece you buy. Make sure anything new fills a hole in your wardrobe, in this case, your casual day wear section. This wear you are building a capsule wardrobe, and you will never run out of what to wear.

 

Look Cool

Look cool, casual and trendy this summer by teaming a nice floral dress with flip-flops or sandals like I have done here. This look ensures you stay cool in the heat, and it is so easy to style. As long as your dress is groomed, this look works.

 

Go for a Perfect Fit

Casual day wear does not mean baggy or loose. Go for pieces that suit your body shape. If you rather have a track suit or an oversize top, ensure you balance the look with a pair of skinny jeans, a belt and heels.
