When hubby comes home, and you say, “It’s been a busy day. I don’t feel like cooking, let’s go out”, what do you wear?
Here’s a casual outfit that you can throw on to zip up to your local restaurant for a burger, salad or tasty bite.
Let’s look at how it was put together:
Slip into a pair of dark wash denim, the kind that follow your curves and has a slight flare that balances out your hips and thighs. Nearly all women will look great in this style. No rips, fades, whiskers at the crotch, rhinestones or jeans that are so low your muffin top or back fat spills over. A medium rise dark wash jean with some stretch looks rich, classy and feels comfy.
Where a lot of gals go wrong is wearing short tops when they are wider across the middle and have a bit of a tummy. Short tops that end at your problem area will draw the attention there. Now, if you have a belly as flat as a pancake, ignore all of this, but if you are like most women and have a bit of a jelly belly, please take our advice. Get yourself a solid color long top that comes down over your tummy and hides it.
This top is particularly flattering. Do you know why? It’s the neckline. Where does your eye go when you look at this top. It goes up to the neckline and away from the tummy. That’s the trick- distraction! Pick an interesting neckline.
Also, this top is smooth and slim fitting and has some stretch that is always good as we get softer and rounder. It flows with the body.
Pick a color that is your wow color. You need color up by your face after 40. If you don’t know what your wow colors are then get your colors done. Our associate Lora Alexander is a color analysis expert and will do your colors online. Check her out. It is well worth it.
These shoes may be too high for some, no doubt, but you get the idea. You need to add some height to look taller and sexier even if it is just and inch. You will look svelte, and your pants will look better on you. Wedges say casual but chic. Do not wear ugly black loafers with these or sneakers- repeat- do not. You will ruin the look.
This bag is so fun. When you want to be casual, a colored bag adds energy and makes you look youthful. This bag could be orange, purple, etc. It doesn’t matter. It is there to add some punch.
This black necklace simple and chic. No itty bitty jewelry here. This necklace shows personality. Imagine how plain the outfit would be without it. Notice how the black ties in with the shoes and pulls the look together?
The Whole look
Yes, you could wear it out to a casual dinner, but you could also wear it a lot of other places like shopping, dropping by girlfriends, out to a movie, etc. It’s a solid outfit and one you will like to have in your closet. Have you ever worn something similar? Send me a photo. I’d love to post it.
