Though it seems simple, pulling off a casual outfit is not as easy as it looks. What it all comes down to is finding accessories and additions that can turn a simple white tee and pair of jeans into a look appropriate for any occasion. When I saw this Fashionista, I noticed that she pulled off the laid-back outfit thanks to her leather bag and blue skull necklace. Her over-all look was not too much but not too little. When I continued to interview her about her fashion inspiration, it made sense that she could master this look in such a subtle yet stylish way. From her flannel to her studded boots, her street style was simply polished to perfection.

CF: What is a favorite outfit that you’ve worn?

How To: Luckily, the casual look is open for individual interpretation and preferences. Simple accessories are not hard to find, especially on the websites suggested from this Fashionista. Check out Brandy Melville (I like this gold crystal charm necklace) for a dainty and cute addition to a neutral colored shirt. This Ralph Lauren flannel would go beautifully with a pair of dark jeans and your favorite band T-shirt or vintage T-shirt underneath. For a leather bag that can be a topper for any outfit, check out a black or brown zip-up like this one for an accessory. The possibilities are endless!
