Styling A Casual Daywear Look

Casual does not mean scruffy. You are not meant to skimp on the quality of your casual daywear pieces as they serve a great purpose in your wardrobe. These days, I am usually in a causal daywear outfit. I haven’t gone partying in years (forgot what that’s about), so casual daywear pieces are all I am about most days of the week. It works for my lifestyle and I believe they are as stylish as other looks.

Here are a few style tips you should bear in mind when styling a casual daywear outfit.

 

Go for quality pieces

Like I said at the start of the post, casual does not mean scruffy. So ensure you go for quality pieces when shopping for or styling a casual daywear look. Cheap pieces do not stand the test of time, and they usually look cheap. It is best to spend a little bit more on clothes that would last more than 1 season.

 

Ensure you get a perfect fit

Casual does not mean you should go for oversize pieces. It is best to nail this look with the right size of garments. If you do like the oversized look, like oversize cardigans/jumpers, ensure you style them with belts and or skinny jeans/leggings to balance up the look.

 

Layers work

I love layering my pieces, especially with the British weather that is up and down. Layering is key when it comes to rocking a casual daywear look. Casual daywear is all about effortless style and layering nails this to a tee. A t-shirt or camisole under a blazer paired with a pair of jeans and scarf would look so stylish. A shirt underneath a waistcoat and jeans would work great too!

Ensure you have the right coat on this winter

A coat has the power to make you stand out for the right or wrong reasons. So it makes sense to pay special attention when picking one. Don’t mess up your look with a shapeless baggy coat. Get your winter coat in the right size and the right style for your outfit. A sleeveless jacket look trendy with a sweater.

 

Get your accessories right

Accessories have the power to make or break any look, so ensure you get your accessories right when styling a casual daywear look. Avoid wearing sparkly jewellery with your casual pieces. It would look too much. Keep your jewellery small and understated so you effortlessly chic.

 

Think Capsule

When shopping for your causal pieces, ensure you go with a shopping list of the pieces you need. Don’t just buy any piece you see. Shop for pieces you need to create various looks. A good way to go about this is to buy 3 colours for a good mix and match wardrobe. So black, white and khaki or blue, cream and khaki. Then you can include some colour into the mix with tops and accessories.

Back to the fashion hacks, here are 10 priceless fashion hacks that you can try out.

 

Remove makeup on your clothes with a wet wipe

Remember those days when you do your makeup and accidentally get makeup on your clothes? It can be a drag to change your clothes especially when it took ages to put the cute outfit together.

A simple way to remove the makeup stain is to use makeup remover wipes to gently wipe away the makeup from your outfit. It takes the makeup right off.

 

Get rid of the smell on vintage clothing

It’s surprising how many cute pieces you’ll find in a thrift store. But together with those clothes comes a peculiar odour that is customary with every vintage outfit from the thrift store. To get rid of the smell, spray some distilled vinegar on the clothes. For tough musty smells, let it stay in a bag of baking soda for a day or two.

Stop zippers from slipping

This is a common occurrence with jeans. Sometimes after zipping the jeans, the zipper could slide back down. A cool hack is to take a key-ring the size of a penny. Hook it to the end of the zipper and loop the key-ring on the button of your jeans. That will stop the zipper from slipping down.

 

Take the sweat stains off your white shirt

Of all the things that could ruin a white shirt, yellow sweat stains are among the worst. Even after putting your white shirt through several rounds of washing with a good detergent, the yellow stains hardly leave. All you need to do is apply some lemon juice and throw it in the washing machine. The stains will vanish.

 

Make your shoes spotless

Who wouldn’t want to look flawless from head to toe? But shoes are the worst hit in this situation. To get stains off your shoes, keep some baking soda handy. Mix baking soda with water and use a toothbrush to get all the stains, marks and dirt out.

 

Jacket without wrinkles

Ever wondered how some people managed to have jackets with no wrinkles? Well I came across this hack that keeps jackets wrinkle-free. It lies in how you keep them. What you need to do is turn your jackets inside out and fold them. That helps to keep the wrinkles and creases at bay.

Deal with stinky sneakers

We’re all too familiar with the funky smell that comes from our shoes and sneakers and on to the feet. Here’s a simple hack to get rid of the smell: add some baking soda in your shoes and the odour goes away.

 

Find jeans that fit

Here’s a cool trick to find out if a pair of jeans fit without trying them on. Hold the pair of jeans and wrap the waist around your neck. If the two ends touch each other behind your neck, then they’re most likely a perfect fit.

 

Keep the stubborn collars from curling

Crisp collared shirts, especially on work days, make you look formal and chic. But not when the collars start curling on their own. To stop those stubborn collars from curling on their own, use a flat iron to press the collars flat and keep them tamed throughout the day.

 

Give your jewellery some shine

Even the simplest of jewellery adds a lot of charm to your outfits. However, the shinier your jewels the more alluring it is on you. To add some shine to your jewelry, use ketchup to clean your silver jewellery and beer to clean your gold jewellery.
