How to nail an effortless casual look for any occasion


Jumper


You want to look good, but you don’t want to spend hours planning your outfit. Struggling? Here’s
how to nail the effortlessly stylish look for any occasion in collaboration with occasion dresses retailer QUIZ.

Knitwear

We haven’t been without our cosy winter knits this season; whether they’re cableknit, striped or oversize, we can’t get enough! Having some staple knitwear pieces in your wardrobe is essential for
the colder months and can keep your outfits on fleek.

Jumper dresses

Perfectly balancing winter chic with ultimate ease is the humble jumper dress. There is no time wasted choosing matching garments and with long, knitted sleeves, there’s no need to scour your
closet for a complementing coat either.

You can dress them up too — perfect if you think a day out will quickly turn to cocktails with the
girls! Wear yours with over-the- knee boots for a casual yet dressy look. If you’re in the mood to
show off your curves, wrap a chunky belt around your dress to nip your waist in.

High neck knits

And of course, jumpers aren’t exempt from this season’s hottest trend: layering. Layering is pretty
self-explanatory and is achieved by wearing a polo neck underneath a square-necked top. Couple
with your favourite pair of jeans and an ankle boot to fully master the look. Take your look to the office by pairing a smart blazer with a turtle-neck jumper, for a cosy yet chic work outfit.


Casual style


Ankle boots

Smart ankle boots are your lifesavers this autumn/winter — and our favourites are sock boots. They
feature a pointed toe, high heel and textured fabric that fits to the ankle. They are pull on for extra ease and can be paired with jeans during the day time and a stylish skirt for a night on the town.
We like to keep them classic in black, as they’re super versatile. Choose a pair with a chunky heel so
that they’re suitable for day and night time.

Accessorising

A few killer accessories can transform any look and give any outfit a new aesthetic—perfect if you’re
working with a capsule collection. This season is all about statement earrings. Tassels, chunky metal and huge hoops (yep, they’re still on trend) are all acceptable this autumn/winter and can be matched with most outfits. Choose a black or gold pair to make sure that they complement your ensemble and keep them in your bag to slip in for after-work drinks.

When it comes to your luggage, opt for small leather backs and backpacks for sophisticated yet
practical accessories. Black is an ideal option to go for if you’re hoping to use it every day; buy one
with a cute pattern on to keep things interesting.

  2. I am definitely a jumper, jeans and ankle boots kind of person so I love your style here. The colour of your ankle boots are gorgeous too. I agree it's a good base to dress up from.
