Casual chic can now be made easy with bold statement pieces. If you are like me, no two days (or two hours) are ever the same. I am constantly on-the-go between meetings, family activities, and errands which is why I plan my outfits around the casual chic trend. I try to accessories with hold statement pieces to complete my look, but I also opt for items that are comfortable and functional – like these shoes! These beige and black leather lace up platform Oxford shoes from Chanel embodies the “casual chic” trend. Trust me, I could walk all over the city in these platforms! I love the detailing of these shoes from the gold flowers, to the signature black toe. For the jacket I work this padded DSQUARED2 black and white jacket. The stitched texture of the jacket with the gold hardware on the pockets make this piece really stand out at a bold statement (while still remaining comfortable and easy to wear all day). Of course, I threw on some sunnies, and, for the handbag, this Chanel cross body bag. I paired these accessories with a cotton black shirt, and distressed denim jeans (go-to outfit).
