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.
