How to dress in a casual chic look?

What is casual?

We can say that the casual look is THE style that all women are looking for today, very fashionable and trendy. It corresponds to a very feminine, relaxed look and in total harmony with the lifestyle of working girls and business women who are often in high demand, very busy and who don't have time . Feeling comfortable and elegant is therefore the trend of the moment and this is likely to continue for a while!

The casual look is a hybrid style that lies between casual and chic. Forget unpleasant materials and heels to look dressed every time you go out. This look was born in the context of changes in consumption and lifestyles of women who have their place well anchored in working life and who multiply personal projects. Between personal life and professional life, this look combines casual pieces with more formal pieces for a comfortable and cool look.

Active women are the inspiration for this new look. The casual look has no age or adequate morphology, all women are honored. Blazers and sneakers are within the reach of all working girls and bring that touch of modernity without overdoing it so that you look your best at all times. A current, young and trendy style created by the discrepancy between elegant and casual classic pieces!

It's the perfect basic style to be classy without being stuffy. It gives you that chic and elegant look naturally. Thanks to the casual look you will feel well dressed every day, for your shopping, at work, in the evening with friends or even an unexpected meeting with your little family anywhere and anytime!

The centerpieces

• the long woolen coat that we love and which goes with our best tops. Your accomplice in the coolest days of spring but also your little extra that sublimates your outfits.

• A trench coat with its matching belt that suits both men and women. This unisex side that we see everywhere, especially with androgynous models more and more put forward, is perfect to sublimate your great casual look.

THE cashmere sweater , which we all dreamed of stealing from our mums when we were young and which we have today in our most beautiful wardrobe, with its ultra-comfortable material which we wear in the spring as well as in winter. We do not ban the sweatshirt either because it can quickly become too casual, but we prefer the cashmere sweater which goes with everything, to everyone and at all times: Indeed, the cashmere sweater is ageless!

• A black blazer to give you this sartorial elegance in all circumstances: It is well based on the outfits of all working girls , simple and effective. We match it with everything, in the evening or during the day, jeans or a cocktail dress.

The iconic basic little black dress , simple, comfortable and easy to wear. We have all already adopted it for its comfort. We no longer count how many times it has been declined, long or short, and with a very varied number of accessories with which we can sublimate it. This is our favorite of this selection.

Dress pants , or silk jogging pants, if you like to have a dressy look. If you are more comfortable in pants to go to the office, opt for chinos or leather stockings associated with a t-shirt and a small cardigan for a casual style. Absolutely avoid pants that are too tight or too tight in which you will not be comfortable!

• Jeans that put you to your advantage. Jeans are considered a casual item, easy to mix with a little printed top: the patterns are very trendy, a bag and a pair of designer sneakers to stay up to date.

• The cotton sailor top is worn very well alone in summer and with a vest in spring, but it can be worn under a jacket in winter: whether it's a black leather perfecto, a camel trench coat or a black blazer.

• A white or sky blue shirt: avoid colors or prints. This is the item of clothing to adopt for a comfortable but dressed casual look. The shirt is the essential top that suits both women and men (even if we prefer them with their little polo shirts and chinos).

• A timeless leather handbag. We will only have one comment: the colored bags add their little touch with their electric or romantic side. Let yourself be tempted to discover the mini bag trend.
