3 Steps to Casual Chic


It is wise to review the meaning of "casual chic". Since most of us live in a casual environment; especially since the start of the pandemic, our dress has become super-relaxed.

However, all too frequently, when left to our own devices, our casual outfits miss the mark-style wise. When we have no reason to “dress up” we often end up dressing way too casual, or perhaps even looking sloppy. Eeek! What’s a SYSter to do?

What does casual chic mean? If you work outside the home; your job usually states a dress code, often it’s casual-dressy attire. However, the "rules" can be confusing and hard to decipher. When uncertain, we end up either being too dressed up, or way too casual. Tips in this week's article will help you learn the “secrets” to a casual-chic look. 


What exactly are the 3 Steps to Chic Casual Style?

MSP's Weekly Style Mission

This week’s Style Mission: It's a jewelry box raid!

Start here: Dig in to the depths of your jewelry box(es) and pull out a few forgotten "vintage" pieces. Items like statement necklaces, interesting earrings, unique brooches, lockets, etc. Anything you haven't seen or worn in quite some time. This week we give these gems a second chance to help you "Show Your Style" SYSter!

Got a long strand of pearls you never wear? How about layering them, along with a long-chained locket for an eclectic look or simply tie them in a knot! Pull out a one-of-a-kind bracelet and plan an outfit based on the colors of that bracelet (you can do this with a brooch or scarf as well). Get creative and have fun making up "new" looks using long-lost jewelry!

Love, Leslie MSP

What SYSters are Saying



I've been a member of MissusSmartyPants for some time and quite enjoy it. I save money now that I know what clothing to buy. 

My closet is leaner than when I first subscribed to your service but I actually have more wearable clothes. I feel so confident now that I know how to put together outfits. People say I look "put together". Haha, you have to love that!!! 

Thanks so much, Rose
