When you go out, you want to look confident and stylish, and you definitely don’t want to feel uncomfortable all night (forget the whole ‘beauty is pain’ adage!). While some outings call for a more formal look, having some feel-good casual outfits on hand is also essential. They allow you to look put together and feel good about yourself without looking overdressed.
One of the keys to having some fantastic casual options on hand is to have some key clothing items available. You can put together your favorite looks, but the opportunity to mix and match can open up a wealth of options as well. This includes
Once you get some key staples in your closet, you’ll be amazed at how many options you can put together. To give you some examples, here are three options that will look great and allow you to mix and match pieces to create different looks for different events.
When you think of a silky blouse, you might not immediately think ‘casual,’ but when paired with a great-fitting pair of black jeans and some neutral jewelry and flats, you’ll find that it’s a great look that you can wear anywhere.

This is a look that I absolutely adore. Again, when you think of a ‘little black dress,’ you might not envision casual, but when you find a loose and flowing option, it works perfectly. The denim jacket is a great accompaniment, and the uncomplicated accessories keep it simple while still looking stylish.

While the pieces on their own might seem too casual for most occasions, when you combine them all together, you’ve got a look you can take just about anywhere. Bonus: you’ll feel comfortable while you do it!
