I’ll be the first to admit that casual clothes can often mean boring. If I have no where in particular to go I will usually end up in basic jeans and a t-shirt. But even in a monochrome palette jeans and a t-shirt can still have some interest.
I believe the key is mixing textures and proportions. Skinny high waisted jeans, a super soft tee and an oversized knit creates enough interest to fight to boring.
The thing I love about this look is you can wear it all year round in one form or another. Ditch the knit and change the jeans for shorts and you’re ready for summer. Make the t-shirt long sleeved and add a heavier knit and you’re set for a chilly Melbourne winters day.
Best thing about this look is that it’s so easy to make it your own. You a tough chick? Try it with Doc Martins and a leather jacket. Bit of a girly girl? Add some pretty heels and a lacy top. Want to add some colour? Well there are a million ways to do that!
If you’re new to the colour game start with some small additions, a bright belt or a cute scarf, even a statement pair of shoes. If you’re after something bolder, what about coloured jeans? Or a bright knit to cheer you up all winter long?
Not into colour? You can still mix it up with blue jeans, grey pieces or a vintage print t-shirt.
