Sleeker Versions of Your Comfy Clothes

    You CAN look put together in casual clothes.  A lot has to do with fit and pieces with just enough tailoring to give some shape and structure to your outfits.

    Don't gripe to me about cost, either. I get that you don't necessarily want to spend a fortune on your casual-wear.  Everything I am showing in this post is from Old Navy, except the accessories.

    1. Swap your faded denim with elastic waistbands (you know who you are!) for more structured jeans in a darker wash. They are just are comfortable as other jeans, but they look infinitely more polished.

    Instead of these:

    (Don't do this to yourself; even supermodels look weird in pleated denim and unless you are over 5'9", capris are NOT your friend.)

    Try these:

    2. Replace cut off or rolled up shorts (both look juvenile and messy) for finished, hemmed ones.  (The above rule for jeans applies to denim shorts, too.)

    Instead of these:
     Try these:
    3.  While you are at it, get rid of the ones that ride up (hello, inappropriate) and get some longer length shorts.

    Like madras in the summer? Instead of these:

    Try these:
    4.  Replace a (yes, very comfy) shapeless tee, with a more structured (and equally comfy) piece.  A little tailoring can go a long way toward making you appear more polished.

    Save this for the gym:

    And try this, instead:

    Or this:

    Or this:

    5. Accessorize!  It doesn't have to be fussy or take more than a few seconds.  Put on a necklace and a cocktail ring or some earrings and a bracelet.  Or put on a pretty watch. And unless you have a baby with grabby hands, you don't have to save the dangly fun stuff for parties.

    Instead of your barely-existent studs, try these:
    Instead of your daily bangle, try this:
    Instead of your tired, tiny chain with tiny charm, try this:
    Now that we have that problem solved, what's next? Hit me up with your questions!
