Meet The Comfy But Chic Outfits That Will Get You Right This Summer

It's giving minimal effort, maximum style.

Style

Since working from home has become a regular occurence, casual on-the-go looks have been my daily go-to. When getting dressed each morning, my goal is putting together an outfit that compliments my busy schedule while providing both comfort and style. Although I love throwing on a nice pair of oversized sweatpants when out and about, most days are a cause for elevation.


Even with minimal effort, I love maintaining my personal style. I want to feel and look good, even on an off day, so I'm taking comfy chic to the next level. Also, as a single gal, dressing to impress myself is always the mission no matter my attire. While my casual selections are on steady rotation, I love classic pieces that can be worn again season after season. Complete with modern basics and everyday accessories, get into these looks for the gal on-the-go.

Destroyed Denim Shorts & Button Down

Denim shorts are a classic go-to for an effortless look. Paired with an oversized button-down, I decided to wrap the hem of my top to add some flair to this oversized basic. Opt to wear it open with a cami or buttoned for a variety of looks. For a sporty touch, I added an Adidas cap for an effortlessly stylish curated ensemble along with my favorite zebra print straw bag.

Soft Pants & Crop Top

When in the mood for those comfortable go-to sweatpants, grab a wide-leg soft pant as a lightweight alternative. Worn with a matching knit crop top, I paired this look with a bold green blazer and low-top sneaker for the ultimate comfy chic ensemble. Green has been one of my favorite colors, and with the rise in its popularity this summer, I'm having fun implementing it with my everyday looks.

Geometric prints are having their moment this season as one of the biggest trends of 2021, so imagine my excitement when I stumbled upon these trousers at my local thrift store. I love wearing these low-riser oversized pants with just about anything, but sneakers and a cropped t-shirt is perfect when running around the city. My biggest lesson about wearing prints? Don't overthink items that are distinct. The best solution is always keeping it simple, especially when the goal is to be comfortable. This is the perfect look for minimal effort while flexing your personal style.
