Today’s casual Friday look comes to us from the blog Crystalin Marie. I like the relaxed, totally chic vibe that the outfit has. It’s this kind of easy cool that I’ve always admired/envied.
Two. I know Alexa Chung is today’s “It Girl” but $350 for jeans is insane. Looking for inexpensive distressed jeans? I suggest the Old Navy Rockstar. Need something dressier for work? I recommend a straight leg black pant like this pair from Ann Taylor.
Three. I chose this Frame t-shirt because I love a scoop neck tee and they are so hard to find. Need a nice t-shirt that doesn’t set you back a pretty penny? Try this $15 Everlane v-neck.
Four. Aviators forever. They’re just my favorite. I love their classic feel and timeless cool factor.
Five. I don’t wear a watch often, so finding an inexpensive, functional watch was nice surprise. Looking for something more expensive/better quality? I recommend the Philip Stein brand.
Six. I love scarves for layering casual looks. This camel-colored scarf is stylish and cozy. I also like this sable-colored LoveQuotes scarf; their scarves are so large, they look like they might swallow you.
Seven. A simple leather belt is a nice addition to any wardrobe. This Fossil one is nice. You can also find great ones at vintage shops and thrift stores.
Nine. I’ve given up on ankle boots. My pear-shape just won’t allow them to look as good as I want. If you can rock them, these inexpensive Dorothy Perkins boots are a nice choice. Need another option? I think a black d’Orsay flat is a solid choice.
