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.

7 Tricks for Revamping Your Personal Style on a Budget

Does the new year mean a new you? Changing your personal style is great fun as well as a good boost for the self-confidence. However, what can you do if a new pay raise has yet to arrive?

There are quite a few simple tricks you can use to revamp your style on a budget. Their applications will differ depending on the type of style you want to have. But the ideas are sure to provide inspiration.

How to Revamp Your Style on a Budget
1.     Customize your current wardrobe

In the majority of cases, a girl’s wardrobe is full of clothes she hardly ever wears. You can put them to use now that you are looking for new ways of self-expression. Look up some guides on how to customize clothing by hand or employ a professional to help you. In either case, the overall cost will be much lower than buying brand-new items.

 

2.     Launch a clothes swap campaign

Remember that clothes you aren’t wearing? If you can’t turn it into something new you’d love, swap it for something else. You can start with talking to your family and friends as they are bound to have similar issues. In case your styles don’t align at all, you can find ‘swapping’ opportunities online.

 

3.     Accessorize on a budget

Today you can easily find exquisite accessories at very affordable prices. Go for originality to compensate for the lack of precious gems. For example, the Moonglow Classic Necklace with black Swarovski crystal in pewter will look stunning with a variety of party outfits. Buying affordable accessories is the new chic. Even Kate Middleton does this.

 

4.     Dive into the depth of eBay and Etsy

To revamp your style on a budget you need to not only get the best bargains, but also the most stylish outfits and accessories. EBay and Etsy offer both, especially if you take your time truly surfing through them. The tricky thing is that you need to have a rather solid idea of what you are looking for beforehand. Otherwise, you will get swamped with thousands of available offers. Thus, start with finding inspiration and outlining your new style.

 

5.     Get your own signature

Every truly outstanding celebrity has something unique that sets them apart from the rest. Marilyn Monroe had her bleached hair and the mole, Gwen Stefani has a love for red lipstick and penchant for overlooking limitations of formal styles. As you can see, neither of these are things that require a major investment, yet they are marks of a unique style. This means that you don’t have to completely replace your wardrobe in order to create a new way of presenting yourself to the world. Instead, focus on details that will show off the new ‘true you’.

6.     If buying new, go for classics

This might seem counterproductive as the point is revamping your style. However, practicality should win when your budget is limited. You can personalize the outfits with accessories as well as by mixing and matching classic clothes with a few original statement pieces. By investing in classic designs, such as an LBD (Little Black Dress), pencil skirt, white button-down blouse, etc., you ensure that revamping your looks in the future will become cheaper and easier.

 

7.     Get some extra money

When you need to revamp your style on a budget, you shouldn’t forget that you can increase that budget without taking out the money from other needs. Instead, sell the clothes you aren’t using yourself and cannot customize. This might be a long shot and the payoff is hard to predict. However, this will allow you to both declutter and get at least some extra cash.
