Comfy, Casual and Confident | Allison Ruchaber

Looking to take your casual style to the next level? Check out this style tutorial from popular fashion blogger Allison Ruchaber!

I think the easiest way to take comfy style up a notch is to start with a very basic look like a solid color tee and a pair of jeans that you love (a look that is easy to pair and coordinates well with just about anything so that you’re not worried about matching or clashing) and then look for a pair of shoes that speaks to you in some way. Again they could be casual sneakers in a fun color or a metallic high-heel ankle boot or an embellished flat (whatever you’re in the mood for that day) but since the outfit is pretty basic, you can go with a standout shoe that really elevates the look and adds a super stylish element. And if shoes aren’t really your way to make a statement, you can do the same thing with accessories like a bold necklace, fun statement earrings or a cool clutch to jazz up a comfortable, easy everyday outfit. And then when it comes to mixing the feminine with the edgy, I love to start with something really girly like a ruffled or lace top, add distressed jeans (because that always ups the cool factor if you ask me) and then you can’t go wrong with a good moto jacket either.
