Casual Dressings

Some days call for classic, comfortable outfits. No frills. Back to the basics. Maybe it’s laundry day. Or maybe it’s that, you know, time of the lunar calendar. Or perhaps you feel like stripping back the layers. The clock magically sped up in the morning and you were running late for work and had no time to concoct complicated combos of fabric textures and diverse prints on the fly. You want to slip past coworkers and classmates unnoticed. Whatever the reason.

In these bare bones times, the best thing one can reach for is comfortable denim—my personal favorites are any Legging Jean by Gap—slouchy shirts, and neutral-tone footwear.

If you just can’t help yourself from jazzing  up, keep it simple with a bold piece of jewelry. A necklace or a bracelet, but not both.

This is an outfit where instead of coming home and stripping off layers* you’re comfortable enough to: lounge about on the couch, catch up on good reading, cook a meal, and have quiet time with your cactus or cat or cuddle buddy. (I won’t tell you which one will give you a better cool factor.)

*Of course, if you must unhook the bra the that’s okay; even the most comfortable are medieval and as long as you put the top back on it still counts.
