Makeover Monday: From Casual To Cool


I hear it all the time. “I just like to feel comfortable.”  Well nothing says that comfortable has to look sloppy or that to feel comfortable you have to resort to wearing yoga pants-all the time.

Dressing casually and looking good isn’t as hard as many people imagine. If you follow these 3 tips you will feel and look good.

Ever wonder how some girls can look totally put together just wearing a t-shirt and jeans? They do it with accessories. Rocking a cool belt or layering your necklaces is an easy way to take a simple outfit to the next level. You can never go wrong with as scarf, large earrings, or colourful headband. Just remember to keep accessories to a minimum and focus mainly on one piece.


Jazz up your casual wear with a pair of coloured jeans or a bright top. Coloured jeans are still on trend and take a traditional outfit from blah to blam! Not brave enough to wear bright bottoms? Try a neon top or just do a splash of colour with this seasons lip trend- the orange lip.

Mix and Match

Nothing will say you are a trendsetter this season more than mixing your patterns. Comfy boyfriend style jeans look great with a striped shirt and patterned jacket. Or wear your favourite floral skirt with a print ballet shoe. Comfy and stylish never looked so good.
