An Elegant & Comfortable Style.....

Finding Balance between an Elegant and Comfortable Style.....

With a packing closet of stuff and still never ever having anything to wear (but not really), we women go through mini nervous breakdowns every single day when it comes to choosing the outfit for the day, don’t we? Ah, first world problems, indeed.
So, where exactly do we stand when it comes to mastering the thrill of dressing up? Hard to tell. However, what renders true is that finding a perfect combo in your wardrobe might be easier than you think, especially if you are going for a mix of elegance and casual. Still, this does not mean there are no rules to follow and that you can just throw clothes together into a weird combo of colors, shapes and patterns and hope for the best. The key to finding the perfect outfit for the day is balance, so let’s explore the idea behind it.
Gone are the days of high heels.....
High heels are a special part of any outfit, and they require poise and elegance to be pulled off properly. However, when you’ve got the personality for it, they can be easily combined with casual clothing as well. Nevertheless, with the hectic lives we are leading today – running around like a bunch of confused hyenas – it’s almost unimaginable to do it all in heels. For this, we’ve embraced flats as our go-to footwear and turned them into a very stylish piece of fashion that can be worn with both elegant pieces and casual items. And how to pick the right pair? Be sure to mind your outfit color. Otherwise, you are looking at a serious fashion faux pas.
Classy is still in.....
Not many dare wear classy dresses and outfits as they sometimes tend to look either too serious or too formal. However, they are timeless pieces you can rely on every time you want to make an impression. Understanding the basic classy styles can help you take it to the next level, and come up with a combination many could be envious of. A sophisticated, yet casual look is great for those who wish to dazzle, but not too much. And, better yet, it means that you are ready for any occasion without having to change outfits. We love that plus size fashion is having a moment, allowing girls of all sizes, shapes and styles to show off their fabulous fashion sense along with their superb fashion taste!
Smart casual.....
There are days when it is hard to decide whether to dress an outfit up or down, and on those days, why not go with both? A silk blouse with suede trousers might be the perfect outfit for the day as it could send a message that you are ready for work but also ready to party. Moreover, as this season is all about ruffles, it is an opportunity to include a blouse with ruffles with a cardigan, and boom ‒ you look smart, but feel comfortable, too.
Mix and match.....
The true beauty of combining elegance with casual is that you can finally have a chance to use accessories which might not go together otherwise. Even so, it is important to keep in mind that there are still fashion no-noes that must be followed, or you might end up looking silly. The art of mixing luxurious and affordable accessories basically depends on whether the chosen outfit is elegant, classy, or even simple casual. Wearing too many accessories will also soften the overall look, which is why it is necessary to keep it minimal but effective.
Your hair is part of the getup.....

No outfit is complete without a proper hairstyle, and that is why hair care is essential. Simple hairstyles are easier to maintain while more complex ones require a bit of know-how to keep them looking great. Using quality products will make your hair look absolutely fantastic, making it even easier to balance out an elegant yet casual style that is sure to sweep everyone off their feet.
