I work in a causal office where anything goes except jeans. People still manage to look under dressed. I value comfort as much as fashion, but that doesn’t mean that you have to sacrifice style. I thought it would be helpful to share some tips for elevating your casual style.
- Pick something girly: If you’re wearing your favorite pair of jeans or casual pant, choose a girly top for some pizzazz. This can be a flowy blouse or a peplum jacket. Anything with a feminine print will do wonders. My go to is (surprise) lace.
- Choose a statement piece: A pretty scarf, amazing shoes, or your favorite handbag. My statement piece is my necklace. It’s a beautiful gold vintage locket with a floral etched design from a local antique show.
- Layer on the jewelry: If you’ve been reading this blog for a while you know that I love jewelry. It’s an easy way to add glam to your outfit. If you’re not big on accessories, try to find some simple earrings, a ring, or a pendant (or all of the above). I went for lots of gold jewelry, simple earrings (not shown), a gold bracelet, and one of my favorite rings.
- Color up those lips: Adding color to your lips will give you a more polished look, even in causal situations. If you’re not big on lipstick, use a tinted lip balm or gloss. Also, mascara is your friend. Do yourself a favor and swipe on 2 coats. 😉
