How to Look Laid-back Chic

Vancouver has been plagued by it's "too-casual" style title for a long time now, and I can't exactly blame Vancouverites for wanting to be casual. I mean, casual means comfortable, doesn't it? But why is it that dressing chic can't be comfortable too? It can!

These pants from BB Dakota were a great find from my favourite boutique in Fort Langley, the Little White House Co. Pro tip: they have a little closet on the second floor with super awesome sale items, which is where I found these pants! The tie waist and cut make them look like dress pants, but their ultra soft material makes them the perfect candidate for a chic yet comfortable outfit.

The weather is still a little cool as we get into Spring, so sweaters are still a staple in my wardrobe. The key is finding one in a classic print, like stripes, and that is a bit roomy (for extra comfort). My go-to styling for any slightly oversized sweater is to tuck in only the front of the sweater - it gives a great laid-back feel, while also showing off more of your cute pants! Over top, a good coat with a cut that is casual, like this open-style wool coat I found at Zara, is perfect.

Of course, when in doubt, adding a statement necklace and some statement shoes are the easiest way to elevate your casual outfit game. I often layer a casual sweater with a chunky, sparkly necklace to give it a chic finish, or switch out my Converse for some eye-catching low heels that are easy to walk in. You'll feel put-together in an instant!
