The days are getting hotter, and there’s really no better feeling than slipping out of your work wear after a long day and into some comfy casuals to head down to the beach for a sunset walk or to wander down to your local café for a gelati.
But just because you’re going casual doesn’t mean you can’t also be chic.
You can still incorporate the biggest trends of Summer 2012-13 – think neon, metallic and prints – with classic pieces to create a fabulous outfit while still being incredibly comfortable.
Here are some casual chic items to get you started…
I love a dress that you can just throw on over your bathers (or nothing at all!) and it looks glam just as it is.
Neutral with just the right amount of beading to give these sandals some lift.
Linen is such a lovely Summer fabric and these fab shorts come in a variety of colours including blush, lagoon (blue), crimson and golden kiss.
A great pair of tailored black shorts are always in style. An investment piece for sure.
Leopard print is always in fashion (in my opinion!) and at this price, you can afford to buy them in every colour.
I love a good a-line skirt that sits above the knee. Fun, flirty and feminine.
Another fantastic “throw it on and go” dress in the maxi form. Love the stripes and the twist strap detail.
I adore a swing tank – they are stylish yet forgiving! And this Forever New number is right on trend, with its pop of neon, which comes in lime or coral.
Another cute stripey number that would look great with denim cutoffs or tailored shorts.
What’s your favourite casual chic outfit?
