If you’re looking for something simple yet fashionable this summer then this should be your go-to style. The casual chic look is one that never grows old. It’s easy to put together, comfy and trendy. In fact, it’s one of my favourites.
This summer, it’s all about having that laid-back vibe and this look pulls it off perfectly. From A-list celebrities to those who walk on the street, this style is by-far one of the most popular styles you’ll ever meet. You can rock the casual chic using almost any style of piece, from vintage style to modern/contemporary style.
Here are some tips on how you can recreate the casual chic look and be fabulous this summer.
Floral print pieces are a favourite every summer. From tops, to skirts and trousers, there’s really no limit to what you can do with them. To look more casual, layer a floral patterned top over light coloured bottoms like a white skirt or a pair of white shorts. That way you are able to not only bring out the casual look of the floral top, you also look quite chic, simple and comfortable. That’s the whole essence of casual.
Denim cuts across all seasons and summer is not going to be left out. This summer, you’ll see more denim shorts, jeans and capris. Denim is universally known as depicting ease and casual, so having it as your go-to piece for the summer will help you hit the right style mark.
Keep it simple with a nice t-shirt or just to add some fun to it, wear a slogan tee – it always makes a good read. Finish off with a nice pair of sunglasses to perfect the look.
Chiffon tops and dresses
Lovely, light and flowing chiffon is the true definition of summer. It’s fun and playful. It’s also a big plus when you have the heat wave to worry about. Chiffon tops and dresses are trendy and casual, and quite feminine too. Style it with a long necklace to add more charm to your style. You can wear your chiffon top over a pair of shorts to make your outfit look more relaxed.
Effortless yet stylish; striped clothing makes any ensemble look casual. This is a piece that should be included while you are styling outfits this summer. Take a striped sleeveless top and layer it over a nice pair of jeans. This makes you look laid back and captures the real essence of casual chic.
To complete the look, you can wear a gold chain to give it an even more chic look.
Candy coloured outfits
Although your choice of clothes plays a big role in how you can pull off the casual chic look, your choice of colour can also make a huge difference.
This summer try adding more candy colours into your outfits. Colours like pale yellow, light blue and peach look great in the summer. Feel free to add a heavy dose of white to the mix as well. White can help tone down dark colours and give you that casual feel.
