Styling A Suit For Day

When you hear the work suit, you might think that it’s only appropriate for dressed up events. However, you can transform a suit for a day look by pairing it with casual pieces that will contrast the buttoned-up feel.

The white sneaker trend seems to be sticking around, and they work beautifully at giving this plaid suit a casual daytime look. Really you could choose any sneakers to get the same feel. Even the new trend of dad sneakers will work nicely if you’re so inclined!

The layer under the suit is also a big factor to determine how dressed up this suit is. I went with a clean and classic white crew neck t-shirt to complement the white sneakers. You could also go with a more trendy graphic tee for an edgy outfit. Just stay away from silks, velvets or satin that all give an elevated feel.

Wear Separately

Lastly, for more versatility, don’t be afraid to separate these pieces for more cute outfits! Read more styling a plaid blazer here.

Split Hem Denim

Truth be told, I’ve never been a fan of split hem denim. However, when I tried these jeans on at Austin’s own LuxRox Boutique, I instantly was hooked! I styled them with these fun patent leather, retro heels that I have worn a ton over the years. I love how the seam in the front of the pants along with the split hem exposing the ankle slims your leg by elongating it! Adding the heel brings it up a notch to “legs for days!”

Then I added an oh so soft silk blush top with a burgundy color moto jacket that is gorgeous and luxe! The texture play is perfection combining suede, leather, and silk! I also haven’t stopped wearing these earrings since I bought them. The pearl at the bottom is a chic pop of neutral color that I love.

Elevating A Casual Outfit To Austin Chic

I live in a very casual city, that I completely love, Austin Tx. This beautiful city has a very laid back, casual feel and an artsy vibe. Because of this, my daily outfits have destroyed denim and sneakers on repeat! However, some occasions call for an Austin (change to your city) Chic outfit. Then I always as myself, well what exactly is Austin Chic? It’s kinda hard to nail down, but I always try to keep it simple, understated and add a bit of luxe to my outfit.

Keeping it simple but significate is always my top priority when dressing.

Let me break down how to elevate a casual everyday outfit for a chic look you can wear to a ladies brunch, or any daytime, early evening event.

Elevate Casual outfit to Chic look Her Fashioned Life

For this casual but chic look, I have a monochrome ribbed cashmere set on.  Dressing with monochrome pieces is always a quick way to get to a chic outfit. Choosing this ribbed cashmere fabric gives a very luxe feel!  I layered on a  black military jacket with edgy details to add interest. Just tossing the jacket over my shoulders is my favorite way to wear outerwear.

Adding the modern snakeskin bag also adds interest. I love the clean lines, and the gorgeous print with a touch of color breaks up the monochrome ensemble. This crossbody bag has a rose gold chain that is stunning!

Shoes

I always say your shoes will set the tone for your entire outfit. That is why when putting together outfits, I usually start with shoe choice. If you switched my Chanel mules out for white sneakers, you have a completely different casual look.

That said, if you go with a feminine dress or a silk midi skirt, wearing an unexpected sneaker can work also. The contrast will play nicely, and your overall look will be very chic. If you want to wear a sneaker that day go for it, just build an outfit around your shoe choice that will work with what you’re going to do.

Tunic Dress Obsession

I was obsessed with this tunic dress/shirt from the moment I saw it on sale at a Nordstrom store! The gathered details are just gorgeous! I knew right away that the light fabric would be perfect for hot Texas summers.  Styling it with a skinny, canvas belt I had in my closet gave my waist a little more definition. In addition, I wanted a chic dressed up look so I wore a classic nude heel. Keeping the purse small played well with the proportions creating contrast with the oversized shirt.

When the colder weather comes, I’ll style it with over-the-knee boots and a fur vest. How cute does that sound?! Wearing a tunic over denim pants or leggings with booties is also an excellent option for fall/winter dressing.

Another option for styling a tunic is to just tuck it into your high-waisted pants or denim. Depending upon the thickness of the fabric of your tunic.

Day To Night With A Floral Print Dress

If you have been following along with me here or on Instagram, you know that I usually gravitate toward solid pieces of clothing. Aside from stripes or stars, I do not have many prints in my wardrobe. However, when I saw this vibrant floral dress and tried it on, I had to have it! First, it fits me like a glove and is the perfect shape for summer! With the corset top, there is no bra needed. I hate wearing bras in the heat…too personal? 🙂  The fabric is also a linen blend which breathes very well in the in warm weather. I fell in love with the fun floral print and the color palette!

I love to dress up for date night! Perfect time to pull out my favorite heels to wear. I layered on the jewelry with this look, because the dress could handle it without being overwhelmed. With my hair up, I felt like the chunky necklaces gave me a little more coverage also. The gorgeous Dooney and Bourke bag I’m carrying is the exact blue color in the dress, perfect! Finally, I kept the sunglasses fun and light pink.

Floral Dress Styling For Daytime

This dress is super fun and easy to style for the day! You swap the heels for white sneakers, black would also work because of the black accents in the dress. Then, top it off with a casual layer such as this light linen jacket I have on. A denim piece would also be perfect with the blue accents on the dress! Style your hair a bit more casual with a braid and lighten up the jewelry. You’re ready to explore the town on your vacation!

I changed to all black accessories for the beach or pool. The black plays off the darker accents in the fabric so well! The accessories are also organic and textured, giving a beachy feel.

My Denim Dress Obsession

My Denim Dress Obsession 1365 2048 Tammy Caciola

Denim Year Around

I love to wear denim year around! Seriously every time I go shopping I’m bound to bring home some type of denim! From dark jeans in the winter to destroyed boyfriend jeans and skirts or shorts in the summer. Then there are jean jackets which are always hard to pass up! A denim dress completely has me at hello though! I have multiple but… I can still find somewhat of a reasonable reason why I need another! I wear them all spring and summer. Actually, I have worn one so much it now has holes, which I kinda don’t mind because I do not want to give up the dress!


Fitted Denim Dress Styling

Elevated Look – There are so many shades and cuts of a denim dress. I like a darker fabric with a fitted fit for a little more of a dressier feel, add heels and a clutch to complete your look.  As you can see in the pictures here, I have styled two different fitted dresses. One by adding color in the bag and rainbow heels. The other by adding a floral printed topper and a leopard heel. I felt comfortable in the daytime with these accessories, but you could scale back to flat sandals, (See sandal post here), in the day and save the heels for date night.

 


Denim Dress Obsession


Sheath Dress Styling

Casual Style – I love a sheath dress for a casual everyday outfit! Especially in the hot Texas summers! Like I said I’ve worn mine so much it has holes! Just add some neutral slides or for a preppy look, an oxford shoe is a favorite of mine! Old school or luxe sneakers are always a good choice too for daytime errands! If you wear your bag as a crossbody, it will give the dress a little more definition. Belting at the waist is a great option for doing that also.


Denim Overall Styling

There are also overall dresses which are sooo cute with a simple t-shirt or bodysuit under! Wear them with your favorite sneakers for a casual look. Dress it up a bit with a light fabric blouse under and an espadrille wedge shoe.  Off the shoulder tops are also a great choice under overalls!


Denim Romper Styling

Denim rompers have caught my eye since Alexa Chung designed hers with AG denim! (Her latest is here.)These can be simply a one and done piece or layer a light moto jacket over it for an edgy look. Kimonos also look great styled with a romper.


What is your denim obsession you have too much of in your closet?

I hope that gives you styling choices to try a piece you might not have in your wardrobe! Please let me know if you need any other options!

Thanks so much for reading,

Vince Slip Dress With Staud Bucket Purse

 

Essential Top

Your wardrobe most likely has a mixture of trendy items and closet staples that stay chic and never go out of style. One piece you can always count on being an essential piece is a white button-down shirt. I’m sure you probably have one hanging in your closet now! You might even be like me and have a couple of different styles. My favorite by far is from Frank & Eileen. The weight is perfect for layering in the hot of summer and the v-neck hits just right for a sexy look. I just machine wash on delicate and hang dry to keep that crisp white look!

Styling Options

  1. Bathing Suit Cover-Up ~ There is something sexy about a menswear top covering up a bathing suit. Simple and forever chic as seen here. A fun idea is to custom embroider your name or nickname on the upper back portion or front pocket of the shirt! Super cute beach pic’s if a friend or two also do it!
  2. Layer Over Slip Dress ~ As I’ve done in this post, I’ve left the front unbuttoned and tied a knot to close it.  Perfect for spring weather when it’s still a bit chilly out!
  3. All White Outfit ~ Pair a silk version with white slacks, add a blazer and an elegant heel or flat! A white cotton piece would also look perfect with white denim!
  4. Layer Under Dresses, Overalls, and Jumpsuits ~ This is one of my favorite ways to give an outfit an unexpected look! Wear the top under a strapless jumpsuit, seen here, with heels for an elevated look. Overalls and flight suits are all the rage this spring. How cute to layer this piece under a sleeveless version. Just play around with different textures and proportions until you nail it!
