Dress Casual Chic With Ease

I just love the casual chic look.

It accentuates who I am, a country girl with a touch of flair. If you have followed DRB for a bit now you have probably noticed that our clothing and accessories are also a reflection of the casual chic country lifestyle.

Casual chic is all about mixing casual and dressy pieces into one pulled together outfit! This includes your accessories, shoes, and hand bags which can all be mixed and matched to create your own unique style!

A classic casual chic look is the white tee/jean look. Throw in a classy pair of heels or flats and some gorgeous sparkling earrings to pull it together.

Mix up your work and play clothes. Wear a dressy blazer with your favourite pair of weekend jeans!

Use accessories to add pops of colour! Pull a colour from a printed top and use it in your shoes or a bag.

Choose contrasting pieces, like this pretty ruffled blouse with a pair of distressed jeans.

Casual chic should look “effortless” so if you feel like you are over the top you are probably right! Take a step back and see what you can take away from the outfit to make it look more natural.

When it comes to accessories less is more! Choose one statement piece, a nice stand out necklace, gorgeous drop earrings, or stacked bracelets. But choose just one stand out and let the rest stand in the background or don’t wear the others at all.

Now that you have permission and the tools to dress casual yet still look fabulous and pulled together you better get going through your closet and see what you can come up with! Mix and match, experiment and try it all on. I am betting you have more than you think!

Cheers,
