Okay, I must admit I love wearing stylish clothes even when I’m just running errands at the nearest supermarket. What can I say? I just don’t want to look lousy whenever I go out, and I’m pretty sure most women feel the same way too. Unless you look too made up whenever you go out to buy some milk, I don’t see anything wrong with always wanting to look your best.

Well thanks to the casual chic attire, you can do just that—looking fab without looking too fab. Confused? Me either. I know, it’s a paradox. Heck, it’s a true Schrödinger’s Cat for fashionistas I must say. But let’s just put it this way: Casual chic is that middle ground between casual and high fashion; a mixture of your comfiest and the most fashionable pieces in your wardrobe.

That’s what I love about casual chic outfits, it allows us women to look good and feel great about ourselves while enjoying the comfort of your most comfortable tees or pair of jeans. And really, it’s not that hard to put together a casual chic ensemble because all you need is a keen eye and an imaginative mind. Just mix and match together some elements from your “high fashion” clothes and your “easy-like-Sunday-morning” clothes and you’re good to go.

The best part about casual chic clothes is their versatility. You can actually wear them in pretty much any occasion you can think of—well not in every occasion such as formal functions but  aside from that, I’d probably go casual chic every time. Furthermore, going casual chic allows you to maximize your wardrobe to the fullest. By mixing and matching different pieces of different styles in your closet, you’ll be creating more looks. You can just imagine the possibilities.
