Are you a fan of jeans and a nice top? Of course you are! It’s practically the casual uniform for women.

But did you know there are other casual outfits for women, too? I know, crazy right?

All joking aside, if you’re ready to venture beyond your usual jeans and a nice top look and explore a few alternatives, then I’ve got just what you’re looking for.

Take notes because I’m about to introduce you to a whole slew of casual wear for women. 

What is Casual Dress Code for Women?

Casual wear is the best when you’re headed out with your gal pals or even to the office for casual Friday. The Trend Spotter says casual wear for ladies is basically just jeans, a t-shirt and cardigans.

Sneakers are also a welcome part of the casual dress code. Pretty much anything that makes you feel relaxed and comfortable when you wear it should be a part of your casual wardrobe.

I think we can elaborate a bit more on this definition though, let’s get down into what you should actually wear. 

Casual Clothing for Women

T-shirts

A t-shirt is more versatile than you might think because it can be worn for a lot of different occasions and even across different dress codes including smart casual.

Wrap Skirt

Whether you’re grocery shopping or headed to the office, a simple t-shirt can add a relaxed feel to even the most fancy outfit. Pair yours with some bold pants and boots or a skirt and strappy sandals for a more feminine look.  

Tops & Sweatshirts

There are those days when you just don’t want to take off your sweatshirt or hoodie⸺even if the occasion calls for it.

Good news, you don’t have to! Just swap your bottoms for a midi skirt and boots. If it’s a little chilly, some leather pants will help you look put together instantly.

Jeans

No matter what outfit suggestions I give you here, you can never beat jeans and a nice top. It’s just not possible.

However, there are ways you can switch it up a little. Try a pair of flared jeans and a printed shirt for instance. And take your look from day to night by swapping out your sneakers for stilettos.

Skirts

May I be so bold to say that a skirt and a nice top is perhaps the next best thing to jeans and a nice top?

No matter what length you choose, a tee or shirt tucked into a classic skirt is a great look. Complete your look with a pair of chunky boots and a sweater⸺this is a great combination during those transitional seasons.

Dresses

I love dresses, especially during the warmer seasons. They’re so simple but so beautiful, you can practically just throw one on and you’re ready to go. Choose something loose and flowy like a smock dress for casual wear.

You can even dress it up or down with simple accessories and layers like a cute cardigan or a belt to help cinch your waist.

Jackets & Coats

Even though we might lament the colder weather, it’s also a great excuse to break out your favorite outerwear.

From long coats to denim jackets, there are so many easy ways to cozy up in style. A loud color is the perfect antidote to a monochrome outfit, otherwise just play with your lengths and shades to complete your OOTD.

Knitwear

The only thing more comforting than that hoodie you live in is a chunky knit in fall or winter.

 rollneck sweater

Oversize puff sleeves and rollnecks go great with jeans or a midi skirt. Swap your sneakers for a pair of thigh-high boots and tights for a chic runway-inspired look.

Shoes

Casual clothing wouldn’t be complete without the shoes⸺mules, flats, sandals and sneakers. All are great, stylish options that don’t compromise on comfort.

Make a statement with your casual footwear by color matching with your outfit or wearing a contrasting shade.

Casual Outfits for Going Out

Whenever you’re headed out with friends for a casual outing, keeping it comfy is the name of the game.

When you’re picking out a dress, avoid backless or strappy dresses, unless you don’t mind wearing a stick-on bra. Choose one that you won’t need to constantly re-adjust throughout the evening. A slip dress or cute wrap is a great option.

If you’re feeling more of a skirt and top ensemble, an A-line or high-waist skirt is by far the most cozy option.

velvet pants

Jeans or pants are always a great alternative too. A pair of bold leather pants or even velvet can spice up your outfit in a hurry.

Casual Outfits for Date Night

Your date night style needn’t come at the expense of your own comfort. A cute rollneck with a pair of jeans and stilettos goes a long way.

Ditch your button-up for a graphic tee and a leather skirt and denim jacket or slip on a romantic, flowy dress paired with a bold red lipstick.

Casual Outfits for Dinner

Even if the venue is a little more highbrow, you can still rock a casual outfit with a fancy twist at dinner.

pleated skirt

A metallic pleated skirt is an easy way to keep yourself comfy while looking the part of a dressed up patron. Add your choice of rollneck or oversized button-down to complete the look.

If you’re in the mood for pants, a simple pair of black pants and a crisp white t-shirt can be easily dressed up with some statement jewelry.
