Wardrobe Essentials Part 2: Casual Wear

Part 2: Casual Wear

Well... I meant for this post to go live yesterday morning, but my social life got a little busy and I wasn't able to finish this post until right now.   But better late than never right?

Last Saturday I wrote the first part of this series, Wardrobe Essentials For WorkThis week's post is all about casual wear which makes up a large amount of your wardrobe as its what you wear basically everyday when your not working. I've put together a list of a few key pieces that can be worn together, or separately, to give you a comfy, yet put together look for everyday outfits.

Well this is clearly very broad... I think a few classic crew neck or v neck tee's and long sleeve shirts are perfect for layering under other articles of clothing.  I also think a few nicer tee's or blouses are great for when you want to look a little nicer.  Here's a few of my finds.


Prints - Prints are always fun to add to your wardrobe.  Classic prints add a fun twist to an plain or boring outfit.  You can use prints to add texture and color to your outfits as well.  

 Tartan - I love tartan or plaid (aren't they basically the same...)  Tartan or plaid can be worn on its own or layered under a cozy sweater.  I've been loving the look of layering a plaid shirt under a nice sweater. Comfy and cute!

Chambray - A nice chambray top can be very versatile.  It's casual and can be worn on its own or it can be paired with, or layered with another top or sweater!

Sweaters - Sweaters are so warm and comfy! They are cute on their own and when they are layered over another shirt!


When you're going for a really laid back, casual and comfy look, leggings are the way to go! They are great to wear with a tunic and some boots.  Leggings are also very versatile as they can also be worn under dresses when it gets colder.

Clearly jeans are a part of everyone's wardrobe.  Having a few different styles and washes of jeans are great in order to achieve different looks ranging anywhere from casual to a little more dressed up. 

What do you guys think?  Is there anything I'm missing? 

Also, Look out for the rest of the series:
