However, i find that when i dress casual, it takes extra effort (for me at least), to look fashion forward at the same time. A look which says, i didn't try too hard today, but this is still a look you wanna copy. ;)
The one rule i find that helps me achieve this look is my "ONE PERFECT ACCESSORY" rule.
The concept is simple. By wearing one fashion forward item, the outfit suddenly jumps into the "fashionable" category without the whole works.
a) The Fashion Forward Handbag
b) The great necklace
c) The statement earrings
d) Chunky Bracelets
and Finally of course.
So if you're out for the day and tired, just pick one perfect accessory. And you'll be good to go!
