Same old weekend chic: Fitted jeans for those casual days
Now that it’s time to lose those coats and heavy knits, look to these chicsters for off-the-job inspiration for easy, approachable weekend chic that’s fuss-free and perfect for those on-the-go moments
And while you’re at it, drop those baggy sweats, ditch the wide-leg jeans and store the harem pants. You’ll thank yourself when you see how simple it is to dress quickly with very little thought. Nothing new here, just wiping the slate clean after season’s of challenging offerings at hand.
>>Going away? What to wear while visiting the countryside
We suggest you take trends out of your daily routine gear and go for minimal basics with a sense of Jackie O. era simplicity.
Might we add that when you do go for fitted classics, you aren’t letting go of your own individuality nor sensuality as they accentuate a great physique and help you avoid the pitfalls of leasurely dressing.
Take supermodel Christy Turlington in a natty Stella McCartney blazer and white jeans for one. Sure, she’s a yoga fanatic and has got the body to prove it, yet anyone can find inexpensive versions of her fitted basics, and look good in them, Trust us, you can’t go wrong when you keep it this paired down and timeless.
Taylor Swift proves that while red jeans may have made their mark last year, they still look fresh when paired with classic accessories and a nautical striped tee.
And with that, like the other three stylish ladies here, she also proves that you can never go wrong with casual, preppy basics that are both stylish and comfortable. Afterall, you can basically find everything she has on or at least an alternative, anywhere. All it takes is some coordination and attention to fit and proportion.
Leelee Sobieski may be wearing an ultra-luxe sweater from The Row that has a mannish sensibility (one you can easily find at any pricepoint), but she smartly sweetened the deal with girlie pastel jeans, a timeless doctor’s bag and elegant pulled back hair.
While she has slowly crept her way back to our inspiration boards over the past few months, its great to see her looking smart in even the most basic of looks too.
While all different in tones, take a cue from these style savvy stars and go for fitted basics in a range of colors when looking for casual chic.
Here’s what to keep in mind:
- Look for a proper fit, here, proper fits show off a sleek physique and radiate easy style
- Keep your basics simple in design and fuss-free for instant chic with virtually no effort
- Weekend basics call for either nuetral colors or an outfit with one strong color, i.e no prints, no embellishments etc.
- Keep your hair and accessories on the classic side for an air of elegance that could get you noticed even in a plain white tee
