How to master casual dressing: the top tips you need to know

As simple as the phrase casual dressing may sound, it isn’t quite so easy to pull off. It isn’t simply a case of throwing on joggers and a sweatshirt any more, oh no. Big brands have curated casual looks so finely that all of your favourite fashion-forward people are basing their wardrobes around this streamlined style.

After spending a week in workwear, casual dressing is the weekend’s game. Whether it’s running errands or grabbing a coffee with friends, your Saturday and Sunday rotation should be both comfortable and stylish.

It’s all in the details

Seriously streamlined outfits most often boast fine-tuned details. Keeping these in mind when planning your looks can really elevate them. For example, if you’re going to roll up your jeans or trousers, wear a pair of socks to match the palette of your outfit.

Focus on the fit

A good fit is the number one thing to focus on when selecting items for your wardrobe. Your t-shirts should fit well and not be too tight. Your jeans should finish just above your footwear. You should wear your jackets rather than them wearing you.

If the pieces you select off the shelf aren’t quite right, reach out to a local tailor and tweak things to your liking.

Quality is King

As easy as fast fashion may be, my top recommendation would always be to buy less and buy well. Investing heavily in high quality pieces will pay off in the long run as your clothes will last longer and look much better. You’ll be able to say goodbye to the days of t-shirts warping after one wash.

Find your selection and stick to it

Lastly, once you have worked out the best capsule wardrobe for you, keep it rotating. A selection of well-fitting, laid-back garments will serve you well and keep you looking sharp and stylish. Master this and you’ll never be stuck for a weekend outfit again.
