OOTD: Casual Day Wear Look

Casual Daywear Style Image

 

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 is  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.

OOTD: A Summer Dress

‘I like being a woman, even in a man’s world. After all, men can’t wear dresses, but we can wear the pants.’ – Whitney Houston.

 

Gosh I miss Whiteney Houston. I am listening to one of her hits – ‘One Moment in Time’, and it is so sad to know we will never hear anything new from  that golden voice again. I loved Whitney, and her quote above was one of my fashion favourite quotes.

I am a jeggings and top girl, but I also love my skirts and my dresses, especially my dresses. I really enjoy wearing dresses, especially in the summer. There is nothing like rocking a cute floral summery dress on a warm summer day. It is the best. I find dresses super comfy and easy to style on warm days. I got this stunning skater dress some weeks ago and this was my first time wearing. I love the design and cut a lot. It was also a perfect fit. This new addition in my summer dresses collection is now a favourite, and I will be wearing this beauty some more. I have a couple of outings planned in the next couple of weeks, so I am happy I am sorted in the dress department.

I found this skater floral dress very easy to style. I wanted to style it up with a pair of sandals because it has been dead warm over here in Cheshire, so I went for my golden tan sandal and paired it up with this brown bag. I didn’t plan this look in advance, it just fell into place and looked good. I am loving this new method of just going with the flow with styling outfits. Looks like it is working prettily well for me.

Last week was so busy blog-wise. I got back from my Amsterdam holiday, last Monday, and I had so many collaborations to get started, and that is why I was unable to post an outfit feature so I really hope you like this outfit and are inspired by it.

Me being a Shopaholic is no news. I love to shop, especially online. I find online shopping easy and convenient. I don’t have to deal with commuting back and forth with 2 screaming toddlers. I don’t have to deal with the hustle and bustle of shopping malls or changing rooms. I can shop from the comfort of my home, anyday, anytime. I tell you, online shopping is the best thing since slice bread.

I got this Little Mistress skater orange dress with embellished belt detail on the Octer marketplace. This is my first piece from the Little Mistress brand, and I have fallen in love with it. I got a size 10, and it is a perfect fit. The embellished belt detail draws attention to the waist, which I like, and the colour is perfect for the season.
