It not only gives you the opportunity to visually see and learn what to do and what not do, but also gives you a chance take a step back and really see where you need to make improvements to truly sharpen your look for the world at large.
Of course, one of the best ways to make improvements to your ensemble is through the clever use of accessories. Among the many uses of accessories, perhaps its greatest strength is the way in which it draws people’s eyes to the parts of your body that you’re proudest of. It’s important to consider color when properly accessorizing though, as it helps to accentuate whatever laid-back appearance you’re trying to cultivate.
Of the many rewarding attributes of cultivating a laid-back appearance is the ability to transform from a more professional or formal image. No one wants to be stuck in their “work clothes” all day, which is why dressing casually can help to alleviate some of that stress and inspire a similar stress-free environment for those around you. You can easily manipulate many different accessories to achieve this goal.
The first suggestion that comes to mind is the type of shoes you wear with any informal attire. An opened toe shoe, such as a high heeled sandal, can give others the impression of a more thought out posture. this can be particularly effective if worn in tandem with something as simple as denim. Above all else, you’re going to want your shoes to match the color of the rest of the outfit. This will help to unify the look and make it more pleasing to the eyes. In addition, the color of the shoe should not assert an overwhelming intensity that degrades the appearance. For those looking to straddle the line between casual and formal, a high heeled shoe will help to give the illusion of business while maintaining an aura of relaxation.
For areas away from the shoe, it mostly comes down to common sense. For example, a tucked shirt can project a sleek appearance that will help to make you seem both professional and casual, all at once. While this contradictory message may seem improbable, it really does work. By contrast, a shirt that isn’t properly maintained can project disorganization. While disorganization may sound like a plus, it really isn’t. What you want to aim for is a laid-back, but structured, look.
For other accessories that can really enhance your casual image, you can look to bracelets and necklaces. A beaded necklace can be easily twisted into the size of a bracelet. The color of the bracelet should be similar in shade to a small aspect of the design in the attire. A nice bangle bracelet can be a part of the creative enrichment to the casual appearance.
A handbag can also be used as an accompaniment. When picking out a handbag, make sure you choose one that is not massive in size or be brightly colored, as that can take away from the casual look. The handbag should assist in the outline of the attire, not dominate it.
The stylishness of a belt or scarf can also help promote an image of elegance. A hint of color from a scarf can provide an extra benefit to dress up the casual look. Part of the beauty of something as simple as a scarf is the way in which it can be utilized to achieve many different ends, dependent on the way in which you wear it (wrapped, folded, etc.). While these are just a handful of some of the great tips to help build that casual look you’ve been searching for, there are still many more out there, waiting for you to discover.
