Putting together the perfect casual but stylish ensemble is more difficult than slaying an evening outfit for a formal affair. Because it’s casual, we don’t want to look like we put a lot of effort into putting together our overall getup (even if we did). We want our aura to be like “I-just-threw-this-on” kind of thing. Luckily, there are a couple of casual outfit formulas that you can easily cop to look anything but boring.
StyleGenie rounded up these top casual outfits to steal from your favorite celebrities for that fail-safe casual outfit ideas, which you can easily curate as your #OOTD, for a coffee date with a friend, lunch out with the fam bam, afternoon party, trip to the museum, or as simple as an errand day. Ladies and gents, let’s take our cue from these celebs who make casual outfits look like a fashion photo shoot.
Let’s start with us, ladies.
Show off those legs with a pair of denim shorts that go with almost any kind of top－kimono, tee, camisole, long sleeves, cardigan, etc. Walk in a pair of white kicks, flats, wedges, espadrilles, heels, or sandals. You can also do the denim on denim look. It’s all about comfort and ease with a pair of denim shorts.
RIPPED, SKINNY, AND TAPERED JEANS
Another timeless casual outfit is jeans. Pair your jeans with any top under the sun. Make sure that the jeans hug your legs well to show off that great figure you have.
CO-ORDS + SNEAKERS OR STILETTOS
Co-ords are a fashion must-have because you can wear them as they are or mix-and-match them with your other clothes. They are your lifesaver in thinking time when pressed for time to get dressed.
BLACK AND WHITE
These two classic colors are a no-brainer and guarantee a no-fail when it comes to dressing up in general. Your white Chucks or trainer shoes along with your whole outfit make the perfect winning combo for this look. They instantly make anyone look pulled together and ready for whatever occasion the day may bring.
FLORAL DRESS + SNEAKERS
Another classic combo in the house is the floral dress and sneakers. The best way to show off that sweet and dainty side of yours is by means of a floral dress. White trainers or sneakers work best with light colored floral prints and colors.
TRACK PANTS + CROPPED TOP
The athletic-inspired pants radiate coolness and comfort. You can upgrade them by wearing your fave lace-hemmed top or blazer. Dress them down with a basic white tee or cropped top.
Gentlemen, don’t think we forgot you. We combed through the internet and searched for these casual outfit ideas from these male celebs. You’re sure to look neat and trim with these ensembles you can easily cop.
BLAZER AND JEANS
Blazers easily make anyone look not only smart but also a gentleman. Try to avoid patterns and cuts that you would normally wear to a board meeting. Have fun with your blazer’s color and pattern by pairing them with your fave trainers.
Layering does the trick for this fashion combo. The shirt and statement jumper combo or sweatshirt gives that on-point understated look. Choose a sweatshirt in neutral tones that have a good quality design. Your shirt will serve as the pop of color since it will only be partially visible. Pair your top with dark denims, flannel pants, or chinos. You can also wear your statement jumper as it is.
Bring out those button-down printed shirts with a Bohemian or floral print for that relaxed feel. Button downs go with almost any kind of shorts or pants. You can do a French tuck with your top. It’s like easy on a Sunday morning with this top.
SHIRT + SLIM/TAPERED JEANS + BOMBER JACKET
Get yourself a lightweight shirt, some skinny, tapered, or slim-cut jeans then layer your look with a neutral color bomber jacket to keep things crisp and neat.
SHORTS SLEEVES AND SHORTS
This match made in heaven makes dressing up a breeze. Pick a shirt that flatters your form well. Make sure the top is not too tight on your biceps, chest, and neck; otherwise, you would look like a rolled sausage. This versatile piece allows you to wear it in the office buttoned-up or worn over a shirt when on vacay. Chino shorts complete this overall getup.
We’re crazy about track pants because they’re just simply comfortable and versatile as ever. You can go for the classic black-and-white stripe; or for an edgier look, pick one in bold colors. Get yourself a graphic tee or a denim jacket, and maybe a belt bag for that additional dimension.
It doesn’t mean that just because there’s no occasion, there is no reason to dabble in the fashion game. Casual outfits allow us to creatively express ourselves as we go about our mundane day.
