 My theory is it’s a lot easier to go out on a glamorous night and look stunning and polished BUT nailing casual… well, that can be a much more difficult task!!!!

I mean there’s always the jeans and top, go to…. the tank top combo and the casual stripes… hey some even look to don the wife beater…. BUT adding an edge, gives it a little something, something, and it’s not always easy to pull off.

I’ve recently discovered a love for hats! Let’s put it this way, you’re either a hat person or you’re not…I’m lucky because I have a pin head, it normally works well with a hat and plus it can cover a bad hair day. This hat I saw it and LOVED! It’s black and white and has that cool, I’m not quite a hipster, kind of vibe (which suits me!!).

I think the trick is to add one of your old, casual go to’s (like my boyfriend jeans in this one, I got them from target for $20…. yep that’s right $20) and add some polished pieces like this Veronika Maine vest and of course the hat… hats always make things more polished (well… as long as they’re not a cap with ‘Honk if you’re horny’ on it or something :)).

So instead of just going your usual, experiment a little with a trendy casual look that will stand out from the rest…. it’s easy to do and you’ll feel like ones of those COOL effortless types…… or at least MR COOLS slightly awkward sibling…. I like the sound of that!!!

The White Tee!!

It’s the staple that every wardrobe needs!! It can be worn many ways…. it’s comfortable and adds that cool…relaxed look.

I’ve done it three ways to show how versatile it is.

There’s nothing more relaxed and comfortable than pairing a white tee with culottes…. looks great and feels good (that’s my motto)….. Add some chunky jewellery for some edge or a leather hat to style it up a bit.

This is a must have….. a leather skirt and white tee! There is nothing better than this combo….. chuck on some pumps to make it a little more out going, or go for flats for a stylish day ensemble….!!

Monochrome it up with an androgynous look! Leather-look pants, white tee and a black vest!! To add a slight edge of femininity …..go the black pumps (to keep it In the monochrome style).

And there’s many more ways to mix it up…… JUST ONE THING…. yes a t-shirt should be cheap but buy one that is better quality…. believe me if it’s cheap and nasty… it will stretch…. crease and just look like an oversized bed shirt after a few wears (believe me I know….. opt for paying just that little bit more for a great cotton tee).

What’s your favourite white T look?
