As much as we love getting dressed to the nines for a wedding or night on the town, sometimes, at the end of the day, all we want is to be comfortable. Of course, just because you want to wear a laid-back outfit doesn’t mean you have to compromise your personal style.
When the occasion calls for our favorite pair of worn-in sweatpants (hello, Netflix night), we're all for it, but casual doesn't have to be, well, all that casual. If you think being chic and cozy can’t be done, think again.
To prove our point, we’ve pulled together our favorite looks from street style stars that not only look incredibly chic but still manage to be laid-back. Swap your sweats for flowing wide-leg pants, and that dress and heels for a comfortable tunic. Then once you’ve found some major outfit inspo, shop our cool laid-back pieces for your own ensembles.
