Casual chic is a relaxed dress code that calls for comfortable and stylish clothes for everyday wear. It’s a stylish womenswear without dressing head-to-toe in formal or smart clothing. Casual chic outfits look best when you combine comfortable and cosy items with more sophisticated pieces to pull the whole thing together, effortlessly. At MONA you will find plenty of casual chic clothing to inspire you.
Wearing casual chic you should be aware, that all casualness also resonates with a certain amount of seriousness. When it comes to materials, you usually pick comfortable fabrics such as:
The cuts are never skin-tight, but rather loose and delicately frame your silhouette. Instead of wearing high-heels or court shoes you choose a pair of trainers, flats or elegant sandals. For casual chic, go for casual tops or soft polo shirts in neutral colours rather than bright tops with colourful patterns.
Even tough, casual chic is more subtle, accessories complete your outfit in a harmonic way. Dress for example your cosy leisure look up with a clean and black handbag and a stylish hat like a trilby. But do not overdo it. For casual chic office styles, you could go with a plain necklace and small earrings.
If you work in a more relaxed or creative environment, then you can choose a casual chic outfit for the office. A great pair of jeans in the colour blue paired with a blouse with relaxed shape, ankle boots and a smart black blazer is perfect for a casual yet chic look for work – and a great example of how you can combine your casual pieces with more sophisticated items to create the perfect relaxed business-look. You could also mix it up with a dress, flats and a jumper over the top for a transitional look that takes you from the office straight to a coffee meeting.
Whether you’re meeting your best friends for dinner or heading to the cinema for a casual date night – you want to wear something that’s comfortable but still looks gorgeous. Jeans are a casual chic staple when you want to look stylish and sophisticated, but don’t want to wear formal clothes. You can dress your most flattering jeans up for evening with a smart top and edgy loafers. Or you pair your trousers with a loose t-shirt and strappy heels for a really casual chic outfit.
The weekend is the perfect time to explore a casual chic dress code. Whether you’re running errands, heading out for lunch, or going for a stroll in the sun – putting together a casual yet sophisticated outfit is a great way to look great while staying comfortable.
Smarter styles paired with trainers or casual shoes is a great way to nail the casual chic trend at the weekend. A flowy midi length dress looks stylish when toned down with clean trainers and a jeans jacket thrown over your shoulders. For winter styles, you could pair a sophisticated pair of cigarette trousers with a cuddly jumper tucked in and leather boots.
No casual chic wardrobe is complete without classic attire like flattering trousers, dresses made from cotton and a combination of smart shoes. At MONA, we have all these and more, with a wide range of casual chic clothing to suit you whatever the occasion. Shop your favourites from the comfort of your home and browse our collection online.
