“A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.” – Coco Chanel
This weekend I went to conference. It wasn’t one of those black-tie only, completely formal conferences. It was a casual, yet professional, conference. But, mixing casual and professional can be a bit tricky. It can make you stare for hours at your wardrobe, wondering whether that combination does exist, or wondering if the outfit you chose is too casual or too formal.
That is when I started using my famous phrase of “sophisticated casual”; it is the kind of outfit that you can wear out to dinner, but still wear to school. My cousin makes fun of this word because it isn’t really a category of dress, but I like to think that it is.
So the main things to have in your closet to create one of these outfits is black jeans or pants and some fancy looking shoes. The top and cardigan can be more casual but once it is paired with the right pants and shoes, your outfit will look a lot more sophisticated and conference ready. And if you wanted to primp up your outfit even more, just choose a fancier top (and maybe say no to the denim jacket? I don’t know…it is allllll up to you).
