Who doesn’t love to relax on a joyful outing with friends? These are the days when you can be yourself and have the best of conversations. A full day’s escapade with friends equals a lot of laughter and creates some of the heartiest memories.
But that doesn’t mean you should overlook what you wear on a casual outing. You don’t want to look at the photographs years later and cringe on your outfit choice. Ideally, you should choose something that not only looks stylish but also feels comfortable. But the aisles of high street fashion stores are filled with new cuts and color, which can leave you feeling very confused.
Today, we are going to share some of the best outfit ideas that can help you ace a casual look effortlessly. Pair these outfits with some bold accessories and a sexy pair of shoes, and you’ll be hearing compliments from friends all day long:
Casual T-Shirt + Jeans and a Leather jacket
There is nothing more classic than well-fitting jeans and a t-shirt. This go-to combination can be spruced up in so many ways. All you need is a little bit of outfit inspiration from some of your favorite celebs or fashion bloggers, and you’ll be good to go.
You can update your look by tucking in your t-shirt and wear a white or nude heel to spice up the look. If you’re feeling a bit more adventurous, add a custom leather jacket to look chic.
Many celebs are also seen sporting fall’s most popular look: t-shirt, denim, and a leather jacket.
Many women are intimidated by jumpsuits. The thought of wear an all-in-one garment from head to toe is a little overwhelming. But, if you manage to choose a jumpsuit with the right fit and length, then it can look uber stylish.
Jumpsuits are a chic alternative to the routine jeans and t-shirt look, and a fabulous way to look stylish without spending a lot of money. Add a statement belt around your waist to create the illusion of a small waist. In addition to belts, tying a jacket or a long sleeve shirt around your waist can help you to achieve an hourglass shape. We love how Heidi Klum tied a denim jacket around her waist to exude the perfect casual chic vibe:
We can’t stop gushing about our favorite ‘70s hippie trend- wide-legged pants! Not only do they look flattering on all body types but are also very comfortable. Wide-legged pants actually make your waist look small and lengthen the legs. Don’t forget to pair it with a crop top or tuck in your blouse to create balance. Your goal should be to create a flattering silhouette rather than wearing too much fabric.
Invest in a neutral colored wide-leg pant so you can wear them to a fun outing out with a friend and even work.
Denim Jacket + Midi Skirt
If you can’t wait to ditch those skinny jeans and choose something more relaxed and flowy, then this style will be right up your alley. Wear a classic denim jacket over a midi skirt made out of light fabric. This look is perfect for daytime or casual outings with friends, and also helps you stay warm when the breeze gets a little chilly at night.
For a visually slimming effect, tuck in your top and choose a skirt that is just a few inches above your ankle. The longer length will narrow your overall silhouette, and the jean jacket will offer coverage if you are conscious about your body.
Another great outfit choice that is comfortable yet looks smart is a shirt dress. Shirt dresses are pretty much this season’s must-have pieces. After all, what could be easier than just slipping into an oversized shirt?
Pair them with mules, sandals or sneakers and this look can work anywhere- from lunch, to work and nighttime cocktails. In case you still need some added inspiration, take a look at this gallery by Stylecaster where they show 25 ways to style a shirt dress.
Wouldn’t summer be boring without the ultimate maxi dress? The flowy material and floor-grazing length of a maxi dress suits every body type. What’s more, they are extremely stylish and versatile. Investing in the right maxi dress means that you’ve got a go-to piece that you can dress up or down for any occasion.
Wear it to a casual meet up with friends and wear sneakers underneath to exude the chic boho look. Or wear a tailored blazer on top for a perfect work-appropriate outfit. The key is to style your maxi dress the right way according to the occasion.

The key to having a fun outing with friends is to wear something that represents yourself in a real way. Don’t wear ripped jeans and a t-shirt if you’re not comfortable in that outfit. If wearing a feminine dress is what you like, then go for it. Wear something that makes you feel the best version of your own self. Remember, the best accessory is confidence and your smile. Once you’re armed with these essentials, nothing can bring you down!
