Casual chic is a combination of casual and fashionable dress. The term describes a type of dress code that is comfortable, but also stylish and fashion-forward. The casual half of "casual chic" embodies clothing that is traditionally comfortable, like jeans, cotton or khaki pants, and flowing dresses; the chic half embodies precision tailoring, bright colors and a few feminine details and accessories to bring a touch of class and sophistication.
1. Wear dark, tailored jeans with a silk blouse and embellished sandals. Jeans are universally known for being a staple of casual dress, but darker-hued fitted jeans have a classier look. A silk blouse and sandals will make this into your perfect spring or summer outfit.
2. Wear a patterned cotton dress with simple sandals. Accessorize with sunglasses and chunky jewelry. A dress may seem like a formal option, but a dress made of cotton automatically gives off a much more casual vibe. A patterned cotton dress is at once casual and chic--the perfect outfit for a lunch outing at the beach.
