There are days when you just need a good shop! Right? For those days it’s like going on a hunt. You want to be comfy, you want to feel relaxed, but you also want to look decent and pulled together in case you run into someone, or just so you feel good about yourself.
What do you wear to be casual but still cool and classy? Below is a suggestion. Let’s see how this came together.
You can’t go wrong with a pair of classic dark wash jeans. They’re cool, they go with anything, but no fades, rips, or whiskers at the crotch please! A clean, dark wash makes you look classy and confident. It’s grown up chic not teenage trendsetter. These boot cut jeans with slight flare look great on most women.If you are have generous hips and thighs you may want to go for a jean that is looser at the thigh such as a trouser jean. If you are slim and fit, great! Go for a skinny leg.
Whatever style, make sure your jeans fit well. With a million and one jeans brands out there is something for everyone. Some of our favorites are Not Your Daughter’s Jeans, JBrand, Miracle Fit jeans. One other great benefit to wearing dark jeans when you shop. Like black or white pants they are a great base to try on colored or patterned tops. You really get a chance to see what the tops look like when what you are wearing on the bottom half doesn’t compete.
Comfort is key, so is a top you can pull on and off in an instant, and this blue stretch top fits the bill. It’s a soft jersey wrap top that nips in your waist and creates an hourglass even if you don’t really have one. The length on this is good because it will hide any tummy. Blue, paired with blue jeans will make you look long and lean (Just in case you do run into that old boyfriend).
Really, any comfy top with any comfy skirt or pant is great to shop in because separates are what you need when it comes to trying stuff on. Ever shop in a dress, try on a top and then have to scramble to find a saleswoman to bring you a pair of pants? Separates make sense.
When in doubt basic black leather always a good choice and an excellent staple in any wardrobe. This bag is just right size for shopping. It won’t get heavy and with the zipper, you won’t have t worry about your wallet falling out anywhere.
This is where the cute factor comes in. You definitely want flats for powering around the mall in. Gold adds a touch of richness and fun to this monochromatic outfit.
Keep accessories super simple when you go shopping. The gold watch and earrings are simple and chic. Gold is best for warm toned skin such (ie: If you have had your seasonal colors done and are a spring or autumn). If you are a summer or winter you can go with silver instead to match your cool skin and hair and look equally as good.
