Style Guide: How to Wear Casual Styles from Day to Night

These days we like to keep things casual, especially when it comes to our wardrobe. Team CA has been loving spending every in-office weekday and cozy, at-home weekend in our new favorite loungewear: the casual dress.

These comfortable and cute dresses have been a game-changer to our loungewear style! What used to be days spent styling sweatpants outfits acceptable enough for going out in public has been outshined and replaced by one-and-done, effortlessness. Looking cute and feeling comfortable has never been as easy and simple as it is in these versatile casual dresses.

But our favorite thing about this new fashion trend is just how these everyday dresses can be “any occasion” appropriate with the least amount of styling!

The transformative casual dress, like those in our latest Casual Edit Collection, are perfect from desk-to-dinner, couch-to-town or anywhere life takes you in between. And we’re going to show you how. 

The looks we styled feature classic silhouettes with modern twists. 

With a few simple styling tips, a casual midi dress or everyday fit & flare dress will instantly become the 24/7 essential that’ll create cozy, fabulous outfits all year long.

All of these looks can be achieved effortlessly with items you already have in your own closet! So let’s get to styling. 

Your favorite Maggie dress, now in a stunning dusty blue knit plaid!

This lightweight knit sweater dress features trendy ¾ length sleeves and a fit & flare silhouette that accentuates your figure. Whether you’re heading out for a brisk walk on a cold day or attending a Springtime brunch, Maggie is your go-to. See how we styled this LKD (Little Knit Dress) below.

We love this stylish long sleeve sweater knit dress for those colder days.

The high mock neckline and asymmetrical panel gives this casual dress a cozy blanket-like feel. But it’s Abigail’s form-fitting silhouette that makes this cold weather staple figure flattering in all the right places. The perfect winter work dress, we styled Abigail in two different desk to dinner looks.

This sweater knit midi dress in a beautiful seafoam blue is the definition of versatility. 

Whether you’re heading to work, running some errands, or staying in, Erika is the perfect comfortably chic dress. Here we styled Erika two different ways, but head to our 1 Dress, 3 Ways blog post to see the third fabulous look!

Dressed up or down, this cute casual maxi dress is a must have. 

This navy blue maxi dress can be styled and restyled to create new cute outfits season after season. Andi is made from ultra soft terry cloth jersey knit fabric which can be layered over in the Winter, or worn as a beach coverup in the summer. We love how the tie detailing at the waist flatters your figure, while the ¾ sleeves and maxi dress length add coverage and sophistication. Here’s how we styled this seasonless navy blue maxi dress.

Getting dressed has never been so easy with Quinn.

The unique sheath silhouette features a slit in the front overlay, carefully crafted so it ends at the slimmest part of your waist. The midi hemline and half sleeves are figure flattering and add the coverage you desire. We styled this versatile casual dress in two ways that’ll easily take you from day to night.

Lilly is the perfect cute casual dress for those extra cozy days at home.

The lightweight terry cloth material is comfy enough for lounging around inside, and the knee length silhouette is chic enough for going out. Lilly’s navy blue color makes her versatile all year long. With just a little styling, you can wear this seasonless outfit again and again.
