Casual dresses let the wearer be comfortable without compromising on style. Wearing cocktail dresses, high heels, and suits can get tiring eventually. Casual wear offers an opportunity to let loose. With casual Fridays becoming more and more popular among the employees, coats and jackets are being paired with almost everything. The line between formal and casual is getting thinner by the day. Some companies are getting rid of formal office wear and moving entirely to casual wear, making every day a casual Friday. In such companies, women do not have to stick to the traditional suit and shoe combination. Even though formal wear isn’t required, women are advised to stick to semi-conservative apparel like wrap dresses.
Here are some of the popular casual clothing styles women prefer:
Life outside the office
While going out shopping to the mall or running errands, women have the opportunity to choose from a wide range of casual wear. The fit of the jeans can be anything from baggy to skinny, and footwear can be anything from sneakers to boots. Meanwhile, in a party scenario, women can go for a dolled up appearance wearing cocktail or mini dresses or take the more casual route, provided the party or club being visited doesn’t have strict dress codes. Skinny jeans with flats or low heels are good options for such occasions.
Business in Business-casual
A new style of office wear recently seen is the business-casual style of clothing for women. As no rules are laid out for these kinds of outfits, it is tough to say what it comprises. It also varies between each workplace as company policies are different. Some companies lean towards the formal side of things, whereas others are much more laid back and are willing to accept more of the current casual trends. Business casual outfits, also known as smart casual outfits, are semi-formal outfits for the workplace. Regardless of being more formal or casual, the clothes are expected to be clean and pressed. The most radical change in the workplace due to the introduction of business casual outfits might be the increasing acceptance of denim jeans in the office.
Activewear for an active life
The active casual range of outfits is very appealing for women who work out. Trackpants, joggers, tennis skirts are all excellent examples of this style of clothing. These are perfect for meeting up with friends or picking up groceries post-workout. These are very often paired with running shoes. Coats and jackets can also be worn on chilly days for more warmth.
Light and Summery
Casual summer clothing is also trendy among women. These come in breathable materials like cotton and usually have bright colours or floral patterns. They are also generally very easy to clean as the heat gets the clothes dirtier over short periods. Tank tops, shorts, t-shirts, and such clothing make up this style.
The whole concept of casual clothing is to feel comfortable with the clothes being worn. Hence it is essential to keep experimenting if one wants to open doors to new styles of outfits. No rule says that a particular clothing article should only be paired with a select range of clothes. At the end of the day, it’s all about giving the wearer confidence in their day to day life without causing inconvenience.
