How To Rock A Fashionable Casual Style
Here at AlibiOnline we are big lovers of the casual style, from relaxed fit pants to cute tops and casual knitwear – there’s basically nothing we don’t like.
From busy mornings doing the school drop off, to weekends shopping or relaxing with friends and family, casual styling is all about being relaxed yet pulled together.
If you’re after a look that’s still fashion-forward yet relaxed, read on below for our top casual styling tips.
This is our number 1 rule. From hats, statement jewellery, a chunky ring or luxe scarf, accessories really do make a huge difference to any outfit. Accessorise a casual outfit and you’ll see it transform from relaxed to fashionable in an instant.
- Stick to neutrals:
Monochrome, pastel colours and grey tones are always chic, no matter if you’re wearing a basic tee or shift dress. Carefully chosen basics are a great style secret as you can combine them in many ways, adding glam, boho, rock details to personalise and spice them up.
- Choose relaxed styles and add structure:
We can’t get enough of relaxed fit knits, tees, pants or dresses as they are super comfortable and chic, however to instantly dress them up and to add a touch of sophistication try combining with structure. A great blazer will go a long way as will a structured tote or tailored pants.
- Wear flats:
While we certainly love a good heel here at AlibiOnline, we also certainly can’t say no to flats! From leopard print ballet flats, lace-up sandals and sporty sneakers – flats are stylish in their own right. Team with LTB jeans and a Betty Basics tee and you’re set.
- Choose one statement piece:
If you really want to make sure your casual style is fashion-forward, the trick is to choose one statement or standout piece and pair it with more relaxed pieces. A print cami in a luxe silk looks great with boxy denim shorts, as does a bold printed shift dress layered with a neutral knit.
