One thing readers often comment on when it comes to fashion is that they prefer casual.
From tees and jeans to yoga pants, mid-life women want comfort.
Most of my fashion articles do represent a more laid-back easy-going look.
However, more often than not, you see my day to day wear is ultimately particle.

Laid-back, easy-going, comfortable clothing can easily be styled to look on-trend.
Today I am going to take clothing straight from my own closet and dresser.
Clothing most every woman owns, from jeans, tees, yoga pants, and other regular daily wear items.
For each grouping of items, I will show you how to take each from so-so to do-show!
We will easily make each of these groupings of otherwise bland items look POW with accessories, and adding one or two small details.
Then not only can you dress comfortably, but you will want to be seen and show your looks off!
Make Casual Clothing Stylish, My Selected Items To Upgrade:
I have opted to upgrade the looks of a white blouse, yoga pants, and basic skinny jeans with a tank top.
I picked these items because I figure they are most likely items most women would have in her wardrobe.
You can apply these principles with any clothing items you have.
Make Casual Clothing Stylish With Simple Accessories:
Make Casual Clothing Stylish: Yoga Pants and A Basic Tee
As seen above in the before ( left ) and after ( right ) all I have done is add some cute seed bead bracelets from SashkaCo. and a cap.
Adding very small details can make a big difference.
While I do not mind the before look, by adding the cap we are making more of a statement.
Rather than “I am being lazy today” we give off an appearance of “I’m ready for activity today!”
The cute ShaskaCo. bracelets just add a touch of extra color and flair.
Make Casual Clothing Stylish Tank Top And Jeans:
Above we take two of the most basic wardrobe items and give a bolder, more stylized look.
These skinny jeans and tank top look far more styled with a scarf and a cardigan.
You can wear the cardigan buttoned or open to show more of your tank.
Our final look is an after photo only.
I could have sworn I took a before photo but I evidently failed to do so.
It was actually the first outfit I put on.
By the time I got done with look 3 I just didn’t have the steam left in me to go back and get dressed again.
I Made Casual Clothing Stylish With Just A Bold Necklace:
I am going to bet you can all imagine this look without the strikingly bold necklace.
It was rather boring and gave me a washed out look.
White can be unforgiving on many complexions.
The colors in the necklace help a lot with that plus gave a nice contrast to the white top paired with colored jeans.
I opted for colored jeans that have a looser fit to keep the look casual and fun.
It’s Easy To Make Casual Clothing Stylish When You Implement A Few Accessories.
This is an excellent look for at work, shopping, or out and about with friends.
It is still completely comfortable although a little less casual.
I wore the same simple golden earrings with all three looks and they worked well for each.
No matter how casual you may enjoy dressing, no matter how comfortable you wish to be, it’s all about accessorizing.
