The past year taught many of us a valuable lesson: Create a life that is simple yet significant. That goes for fashion, too. By embracing the less is more concept, we’re transitioning from high maintenance style to comfortable and casual outfits for our new normal.
Casual Outfits For Our New Normal
Now more than ever, I’m aiming for comfort without frump. After 50+ trips around the sun and embracing the laid back SoCal vibe, I feel I’ve cornered the market on casual. And at this stage of the game, if it’s not casual and comfortable, it’s gonna be a no from me, Dogg. Out with the high-maintenance style and in with a more simple and casual style.
There’s no better time than now to get our casual wardrobes purring. For starters, the next time you’re in your closet, ask yourself, “Are these pieces a true reflection of my personality? Do they each fit properly? Do the fabrics feel good? Do the colors jive with my complexion? And do the patterns compliment my frame?” Each and every piece in your closet should make you feel comfortable and be-you-tiful.
Let’s be real, Lululemon offers the motherload of comfortable and casual clothes. Their Align Pants are the softest, most comfy bottoms to have ever blessed my backside. But, there are times I don’t want to acknowledge I’ve worn them every day for a week without doing a single pose of yoga.
So when I’m feeling the need to up my casual fashion game, I reach for great fitting jeans, a comfy v-neck tee and unique handmade jewelry. By simply layering feel-good staples with interesting accessories takes our personal style from frumpy pandemic to stylistically alchemic. -xo
