After spending days wearing cocktail dresses, peep-toe pumps, snug suits and high-heeled stiletto pumps, kicking back in casual attire is the ultimate relaxation technique that can be used by women on the go. Casual chic has gained a lot of popularity in the streets and even in the workplace, the concept of ‘Casual Fridays’ has become widespread. This has provided women with more options than ever to dress themselves in a casual dress in a laid back and simplistic fashion or stylish one. The best part is that it is extremely easy for women to dress casually and they can apply it to a number of settings with the help of a few simple tips, which are discussed below:
Casual Dress at the Office
Stuffy and formal workplace attire has been ditched by a lot of designers and fashion heads and they are introducing a more casual and fun style of business dress. A number of companies have reinstated this sort of dress code meaning that every day is now a ‘casual Friday’. Hence, employees are still expected to be dressed in a semi-professional outfit, but they have the freedom to give up the traditional black business suit and the conservative shoes that go with it.
As far as women are concerned, this relaxation in attire requirements means that they can don semi-conservative yet semi-casual outfits like loose-fitting summer dresses and wrap dresses that don’t show much leg and cleavage, casual shirts and linen pants. Jeans and tops are also permitted by some companies along with retro sneakers.
Casual Street Dress
Women have a variety of opportunities to dress casually when they are out on about. It doesn’t matter if they are just taking a stroll through the park, doing some shopping in street boutiques or combing through books in a bookstore; there is always a casual dress for the occasion. Their choices in shoes can range from casual boots to chic flats to sneakers whereas jeans can be baggy or skinny. Fitted long-sleeved and short-sleeved tops, tank tops and t-shirts make for excellent casual street tops. You can also wear casual loose-fitting long or short dresses and pair them with low heels.
Casual Dress for Parties
Rather than going for the age-old option of mini dresses or short cocktail dresses, you can dress casually when you go to parties. However, this can also depend on the type of club and the nature of the party. Women who are attending parties where there isn’t any strict dress code or don’t feel like getting dolled up can opt for something on the casual side. You can also wear fitted tops with skinny or fitted jeans and complete the look by putting on low heels.
