Jeans, sweatpants, bomber jackets, sneakers, and striped athletic pants are some of the effortlessly cool pieces that can give you some laidback vibe on your street style. However, they’re often not appropriate in the office so you may think of slipping into them after work. Mind behind the By Funda blog, Funda Christophersen is a style blogger known for her effortlessly cool looks from the office to her casual weekend style. If you’re not a fan of stilettos, but wish to make your everyday looks chic and effortless, keep on reading to scoop some effortlessly cool inspiration from her.
Creative Office Style
If you’re working in a creative workplace, adding some twist to your formal outfits are encouraged as long as you keep it decent and polished. Like Funda, you may go for an architectural blouse or a printed blouse instead of a traditional button-down shirt that you normally wear with straight leg pants. Also, you may trade your business suit with a skirt and blouse combination topped with a trench coat.
If you’re working in a casual office, meaning you can wear sneakers and jeans to work, you may resort to casual yet office-appropriate pieces that will make your office attire still professional. Like Funda, you may wear your favorite plain tee with a pair of chic culottes, or a blazer that will keep them chic. When heading for denim items, go for neat, plain, and decent styles that will make your casual office looks professional. Also, a robe dress may be appropriate as long as you wear decent layers beneath like a turtleneck top or a chic sweater like Funda did.
Weekend Street Style
Feel free to grab the most comfortable pieces in your closet on your weekend street style. A pair of jeans worn with a striped tee may be obvious, but you may also think of swapping your casual denim with a pair of straight leg pants that will look a bit dressy with a graphic top, or resort to loose, oversized, maxi dresses that will make your street style a bit unexpected. Just finish your looks with a pair of sneakers or flats to keep you comfortable walking all day. And forget those sky-high stilettos and classic pumps as you may resort to chic pair of flats.
Easy Party Looks
If you think formal parties call for stiletto heels just to look glamorous, think again. Funda may be a fan of comfortable shoes including ballet flats, loafers, and low-heeled sandals but manages to make her party outfits easy yet chic. Like her, pay attention to the color and structure of your outfit that will dress up your cool pair of shoes or sandals. A fluffy skirt worn with a boxy top or a metallic gold trim shirt worn with a leather skirt may be great to make your party look a bit glamorous without looking over-the-top. However, think of dressing up a bit when you’re heading to more formal celebrations so you won’t be underdressed.
By following these simple tricks from Funda, you’ll be able to create effortlessly cool looks to whatever occasion you’re going to.
