Not one day goes by without one of our stylists receiving a request for a casual-chic look. As simple as it may look, this style remains difficult to master by many. But fear not: we’re here to help!

Let’s start from the beginning. What is casual-chic? Actually, it’s a hybrid between a more laid-back look, and something a bit more soigné. It’s a perfect trend for casual Fridays, night outs with friends or weekend brunches in the new crowded café. 

And no need to empty your wallet! This style allows you to get your chicest pieces out of your closet, and to give them a second life!

But what is the difference between a chic piece and a casual one, really?

Usually, a chic piece of clothing is taken from the most classic part of your wardrobe. Think evening outfits! The famous little black dress, a sexy blouse, a sequined skirt or a classic black jacket. Here are some examples:

For the casual part of this look, think loose pants, denim jackets, knitted pullovers, trendy sneakers or simple t-shirts. The keywords here are: comfortable and easy to wear.

Accessories also have a big part to play in the casual-chic outfits. For instance, a simple jean-t-shirt combo can be instantly fancied up by adding high-heeled boots or massive earrings. Your favorite office dress can as easily be dressed down with a wool tuque and some grunge-style boots. Not that complicated, huh?
