Let’s say bye bye to rigid rules!

We associate casual style with something casual, not limited by a framework or imposed from above. When we think casual, we should have comfort and lack of rigid forms first and foremost in our minds. It is in this style that we can afford the most unexpected, interesting combinations and express ourselves. However, it should not be confused with sports style, although individual sporty elements, will also fit into casual, such as sneakers or sneakers, which will keep us comfortable all day. It is not careless or ill-considered, rather ladylike, but less formal. We should think of it in terms of functionality – it will simultaneously work for lunch with a friend and for a business meeting in the city.

Knitted tuba dresses or skirts are a hit that everyone should have in their closet. Cotton blouses and t-shirts, will serve as a base for casual styling. You can add a colorful patterned shirt and a sports jacket to this list. A relaxed cut will work super here, such as oversized jackets, sweaters, shirts and coats. These few items will make choosing a style both for work and after work a much easier task.

Extras key to success

Casual style, is also characterized by, more casual in the choice of accessories. Shoes and handbags are extremely important elements for styling.

Casual Style - Gigi Hadid

Gigi Hadid is the undisputed street fashion icon of recent years, definitely worth taking inspiration from her styling. She often combines different styles in her daytime outfits, which makes her styles stand out while being great casual options. The above styling is an example of such a combination. A quilted vest, accompanied by suit pants, with a masculine straight cut. Hadid knows that quilting is a hit this season. Opt like her for a quilted vest, coat or jacket and take your fall and winter styling to the next fashion level. Suit pants especially those with a flared or straight leg, have dominated street fashion for several seasons now. If you don’t already have them in your closet, you might want to think about buying them now.

As with any styling, the devil is in the details, Gigi opted for classic moccasins – also in a slightly masculine style – and a simple black shopper. The whole thing is tied up with girly braids and light glasses. This styling perfectly shows that you should not, be afraid to combine classic elements and break them with sporty nonchalance, as in this case of this styling – sporty vest.

The second casual styling from Gigi, can be summed up as a street masterpiece. Each element of this styling comes “as if from a different style?”, and yet as a whole it looks totally cohesive. Where is the secret of this styling?

Gigi Hadid - styling

First of all, in a consistent, fairly neutral color scheme – it is the starting base. Therefore, going crazy with cuts and form, did not make the whole thing too heavy or kitschy. A very simple base in the form of a brown sweater and black jeans, allowed her to go a little crazy in the form of high cowboy boots, a print jacket and a custom finish, namely a sequined handbag. If you’re wondering how to bring a touch of glamour to your daytime looks, this proposal from Hadid should inspire you.
