The best part of wearing a casual outfit other than it is so comfortable is that it doesn’t take much to move it to the chic level. Replace the sneakers with heels and add a bit of bling to the neckline is all it takes. Who doesn’t already have those two items kicking around in the closet?
The sweater here is from J.Crew and is called the Tippi sweater. Well worth the investment as you will score years of enjoyment from it. Here’s why I love this sweater so much…first of all its warm as it has wool in it and second its incredibly lightweight so not to add any bulk to the mid section. In this outfit I also added a tank top underneath to give it a bit of interest with the tails hanging out and not having the extra bulk a full shirt adds.
Let’s chat about jeans. There is a difference to a good quality jean and one that is not. A good jean will hold its shape…a not so good quality will bag out in the knees and butt and look like you just slept it them.!! Most of the time price will reflect the difference in quality but there are also some out there that are really decent priced and give the proper fit. Most woman wear their jeans too big. It looks sloppy. Can I suggest looking at your jeans, if they are baggy at all in the butt section then consider sizing down. The skinny jeans are meant to be snug, but since they have amazing stretch in them they are surprisingly comfortable. Some jeans to consider on the more expensive side that I love are Rag & Bone, Madewell & J.Crew. On the less expensive side try Banana Republic, Target & Lucky.
Now go dig in your closet, I’m confident you will have similar items to this and give it a try. If you are missing a few items, here are some options to get this look.!
