Polished Casual With A Silk Shirt
Here’s another outfit that was inspired by something I spied on Pinterest. After some experimentation, I was able to translate the look to my own wardrobe.
My inspiration began with this look below. I loved the desert tones and mix of textures. (The image originated on this website, which sadly does not ship outside of Japan.)
I’ve had the silk shirt for a few months now, and though I love the color (which is more “terra cotta” and less “orange” than it looks above), I was having trouble styling it. It just felt too heavy with jeans and darker pants. But I think it works well with the softer shade of these tan trousers. I love the feel of silk and though we tend to think of it as a “dressy” fabric, it’s actually quite durable. There’s no need to save it just for special occasions.
Under the auspices of “don’t muck it up,” I skipped the scarf. Then went with tan slides rather than black, as it didn’t feel as though there was enough black anywhere else in the outfit to tie them in.
These slide sandals are SO comfortable! I’m usually a size 7 in sandals, and here the 7 was a perfect fit.
Are there any pieces in your wardrobe that you formerly saved for “best” but now wear with casual outfits?
