From a casual date to a family party, we will run though some of the pieces that you can combine to create the perfect causal look.
These baggy trousers have burst back into the fashion world this summer. From Indian inspired patterns to the plain classic look,they can be perfect for relaxing at a friend’s house. These trousers can be teamed with a plain tank top and loose jewellery.
Make up can sometimes be the most difficult part of creating a casual look. Even though many say wearing hardly any make up is the best option, this isn’t always the case. If you team a light layer of foundation with your naturaleyes, this is a great place to start. Applying subtle brown and cream eye shadow can also make your eyes ‘pop’ but also look natural.
Perfect for a first date, a t-shirtdress is a great way to make a first impression. If you match it with a pair of ankle high boots and some bangles, it can look flawless and be effortless.
Relaxed shirts are the item to pair with some black smart trousers. These trousers can either be black skinny jeans or even cigarette pants.

Once you have done this, add a little bit of backcomb to your roots are your hair with look relaxed but flawless at the same time.
