How To Rock A Classy Casual Look
It’s #fashionwednesday, and I’m excited to bring you today’s post. You got a sneak peak of this outfit in my Three Vacation Outfits post (read it HERE), but I’m going to be going into detail about the full look here today! I am a big believer in “classy casual”. Looking FRESH AF and completely put together, but still casual enough that I feel comfortable during the day. It’s SO easy to put this type of look together, so let’s jump into it.
How To Rock A Classy Casual Look
This type of look is my favorite to pull off. I would say that it’s the most “me” an outfit can get. It is so put together, with the ripped boyfriend jeans, glitter heels and wrap top. I would classify “classy casual” as a mix of high class pieces (like this wrap top) with street style pieces like the boyfriend jeans. Other ways to do this would be a graphic tee and metallic maxi skirt.
STEP ONE: Choose your classy.
I picked this white wrap top because it is really nice material — it doesn’t feel or look cheap at all. It is a piece I would wear with black slacks if I had that kind of job or a pencil skirt if I wanted to dress it up. My second classy piece are my glitter heels. These are seriously fancy. Like wear to a wedding or prom fancy, so obviously I like to wear them during my everyday life.

STEP TWO: Choose your casual.
I opted for boyfriend jeans because they are so street chic. You can really dress an outfit down with the perfect pair of jeans. I spent SO long trying to find the best pair of boyfriend jeans – they need to look good on your butt while still looking loose. I purchased mine from American Eagle a few years ago, and it was the best purchase I’ve made! Between wearing them with graphic tees, to classic tops, to sweaters and cardigans, I wear them literally all year round.

STEP THREE: Put it all together.
There is a trick to looking classy casual without looking like a crazy mix of styles. You want to look like you MEANT to put it together. Here are the best ways to putting this look together:
- Know your personal style. Make sure whatever you are wearing feels like YOU. If you are more of a graphic tee girl, and don’t care to mess with jeans (who can blame ya, tbh), throw this ish with a maxi skirt and call it a day. You will still look put together without trying as hard.
- When in doubt, go with neutrals. Stick with metallics and solid colors if you don’t want to qualify as edgy. Throw on a bulky, sparkly statement necklace with a plain tee, or go with a solid black top and ripped jeans. Neutrals are ALWAYS flattering.
- Modest is hottest. Staying classy is really important to this whole ensemble. Don’t overexpose yourself, stay away from the midriff-baring tops, or skirts that are too short. Keep a little mystery with your outfit.
This is my FAVORITE look. It is so versatile that you can really wear it SO many places. It is slightly more casual than business casual, but you could always swap the ripped jeans with dark skinny jeans and you have the perfect business casual outfit. This makes going from day-to-night incredibly easy.
