The Art of Being Casual with FP Me Stylist Love You Duh

Casual /kazh-oo-uh l/ (a.) happening by chance; fortuitous; without definite or serious intention; careless or offhand; passingthese are just some of the definitions thrown out there by the dictionary. Because of this week’s Casual Monday trend, I’ve been thinking a lot about what it means. It can be argued that casual is the essence of good style. Even when you’re dressed up, having an air of ease about you is what makes a look ring true. It signifies a sort of congruence with soul; what is being carried on the outside is a true reflection of the inner being. But casual can also mean no bells or whistles. It can be about easy fabrics and simplistic patterns such as stripes and plaid.

To get a deeper look into the art of being casual, I turned to FP Me babe, Love You Duh, otherwise known as Kris. We spent a day together, hopping from coffee shops, to record stores, to cozy lofts. She styled some of Free People’s latest pieces and showed off what casual is to her. The end result? A dream shoot of the perfectly draped fabrics, slouchy pockets, easy denim, and the perfect accessory: a warm cup of tea. How do you stay casual?

Casual stems from confidence and knowing yourself. For me, I’m pretty easy going and laid back, so it’s loose silhouettes, sporty tees, and relaxed pants (I try to keep skinny jeans to a minimum). That’s one reason I love FP – your relaxed silhouettes, even on glam gowns, allows our state of mind, our inner world, to shine through.

She is gorgeous!! I go from either office attire straight to sweatpants – so I definitely need to rethink my casual. Love denim for this!
