Cute Outfits For The Day-to-Day

While it’s fun to shop for occasion wear or daydream up outfits you’d wear on vacation, having a variety of stylish yet casual outfits you can turn to day after day is the most important thing you can do for yourself when it comes to getting ready. The beauty of cute everyday outfits is that they make getting dressed easy!

Whether you’re running errands, meeting up with friends, or doing some work at a coffee shop, these are the outfits you’ll feel most like yourself in. Ahead, I’ve created and gathered a big list of casual outfits that are perfect for every day. Whatever your aesthetic is, these laid-back looks are sure to spark some outfit inspiration!

Knit dress, jean jacket + sneakers.

For women who like their outfits to strike the perfect balance of feminine and masculine, this next look is right up your alley. A knit midi dress, gold jewelry, and shoulder bag typically look polished, but adding a denim jacket and trendy sneakers makes the outfit feel more casual. This is an outfit I’d wear out to dinner, to a friend’s house, or any informal occasion.

Relaxed jeans + leather jacket.

In my opinion, any variation of jeans and a white tee makes for a cute everyday outfit. Switch up your go-to combination by swapping your blue jeans for a relaxed pair of these khaki or oat-colored jeans. A leather jacket adds a grungy element, while black accessories make your white tee pop.

Striped sweater, jeans + ballet flats.

You can build countless outfits around a great-fitting pair of jeans. This simple combo is so cute for school, shopping, a lunch date, or casual days at the office. Start with a base of high-quality jeans and a white tank. Layer over the top a striped sweater and accessorize with ballet flats and a fashion-forward shoulder bag.

Cargo jeans, cardigan + sneakers.

Want to spice up your daily denim? Cargo-inspired jeans are the perfect addition to your everyday wardrobe.  

Style them like you would your favorite jeans with sneakers and a cute cardigan, but it’s the details that make your outfit more interesting. For added flare, accessorize with girly pieces like a little leather clutch and dainty jewelry.

Black jeans + oversized shirt.

shop the look:

To me, this cute everyday outfit screams model-off-duty. Loose black jeans have a relaxed, laid-back feel, especially when paired with a casual tank top and Adidas sambas (my favorite sneakers for 2024). An oversized fit makes any polished button-down feel more chill. Try yours layered over a casual base to look more styled.

Double denim.

shop the look:

According to Who What Wear, double denim is back for 2024. But in my book, it never went out of style! Play up this iconic Y2K pairing with a denim jacket and jeans in a similar wash. Keep it simple with a plain tee and lived-in sneakers, but something more feminine like a shirred top and ballet flats would be cute, too.

Black tee, jeans + flip-flops.

shop the look:

Who says a basic outfit can’t look chic? Straight-leg jeans and a black tee shirt is a super simple outfit most of us already wear on repeat. Make this relaxed look more elevated with a leather belt, cool handbag, and chic sandals that tie everything together.

Striped shirt, white skirt + sandals.

Midi skirts are having a full moment right now—and I can’t get enough. The outfit combo above is perfect for switching up your everyday outfit while staying chic and comfy. A white midi – the ultimate piece for spring and summer – feels flowy and casual with a striped shirt, fisherman sandals, and an oversized tote. Style your hair in loose, undone waves for a low-key vibe. 

Off white + denim jacket.

You can never go wrong with an all-white look—It’s so chic and timeless. 

Dress up this everyday base with coordinating black accessories and a denim jacket. I love leather flip-flops for warm days in the spring and summer, but you can make this outfit work for fall with ballet flats or heeled boots.

White denim + button-down shirt.

Christal wearing white jeans, a black t-shirt and an oversized blue button down with sneakers.

shop the look:

Here’s another variation of my go-to denim and button-down shirt combo—proof that you can make the same outfit formula look fresh with a few switch outs!

For this casual ‘fit, I’ve opted for off-white denim and a contrasting black top as my base. Throwing on a baby blue button-down acts as a light layer and adds a fun pop of color to a neutral outfit. Mix and match your button-down shirts with any laid-back look—it’s hard to go wrong!

Athleisure + crisp white shirt.

shop the look:

In search of everyday outfit ideas that are ultra-comfy? Look no further than athleisure. A matching workout set is the ultimate hack for looking put-together even when you just rolled out of bed. Dress it up with cool-girl touches like chunky New Balance sneakers, long socks, and a crisp white shirt—talk about business casual! 

Logo sweatshirt + wool coat.

Wool coats are a chilly weather staple that makes even the most casual outfits look more luxurious. Wear one throughout fall and winter with your favorite pair of jeans and a cool graphic sweatshirt or tee for a practical everyday-life-approved outfit. Opt for dad sneakers, a baseball cap, and a crossbody bag to keep things extra low-key.

Linen shorts + vest top.

shop the look:

On scorching summer days when you still want to look cute, linen will be your best friend. A pair of black linen shorts, like these ones from Aritzia, look oh-so-sweet with a chic shoulder bag and leather flip-flops. A linen vest top is just as breezy and comfy as a cotton tank, but it looks a whole lot more elevated. Just don’t forget your sunhat and SPF!

Ballet vibes.

Christal wearing cargo jeans with a long sleeve knit top and ballet flats.

shop the look:

It’s no secret that balletcore has been all the rage this year. Personally, I love it! I’ve added dance-inspired pieces to my daily wardrobe for a touch of everyday elegance. A black long-sleeve bodysuit and ballet flats look so pretty together, a perfect contrast to streetwear garments like cargo pants.

Oversized blazer + white tank.

shop the look:

Don’t want to stray from your go-to white tank and jeans but still want to look put-together? Adding an oversized blazer is the easiest way to turn your basic OOTD into something chic and elevated. 

There’s so much you can do with this formula. For a casual outfit, there’s nothing comfier than cool sneakers and sunglasses. For a dressier occasion, swap the sneakers for sling-back heels and add some statement jewelry.

Linen shirt, tank top + sandals.

Christal wearing jeans, a black t-shirt, an oversized linen button down and black Birkenstock sandals.

My love affair with linen is still going strong! A simple linen shirt is an easy summer staple you can throw over a dress, pair it with a midi skirt, or layer it with a tank top and jeans like I’ve done here. The options are endless (and always chic). Partner it with sandals, like Birkenstocks, and voila! An outfit you’ll live in all spring and summer long.

Denim skirt, blazer + mary janes.

shop the look:

Denim midi skirts are here to stay. Plus, they make a super cute swap for jeans or shorts when you want to change things up. For a high-fashion look that’s still practical for every day, wear your denim midi with a white tank and Mary Jane flats that are stylish and easy to walk in.

An oversized blazer on top adds a chic layer that pulls the whole look together, but if it’s hot, you can totally ditch it! 

Cozy sweater + barrel jeans.

Christal wearing white cargo pants, sneakers and a grey sweater.

shop the look:

Nothing says casual-chic like a cool pair of denim and a luxe knit. If you want your casual outfit to feel elevated yet comfy, loose-fitting denim is the way to go. I love these Everlane barrel pants because they’re lightweight with a bit of stretch, but their trend-forward silhouette instantly elevates any ensemble. 

Pair them with a cozy sweater and sneakers for an effortless vibe. If barrel jeans aren’t your favorite, you could try this look with relaxed trousers instead.

White tee, sweater + shorts.

If you want your summer uniform to channel Coastal Grandmother vibes, you’ll want to bookmark this next look. These Agolde jean shorts have a longer length that is so flattering and look great with both casual and dressy shirts.

Throw on a white tee and a striped sweater draped over your shoulders with some sandals for an outfit that looks just as cute seaside as it does for everyday activities. 

Puffer vest + sweater.

shop the look:

A puffer vest is one of my favorite pieces for fall and winter—it looks cute, keeps you warm, and doesn’t feel bulky when you’re out and about. To keep this look super cozy, I’ve opted for this cashmere fisherman sweater from Jenni Kayne that is unbelievably soft. A nice pair of jeans, Sambas, and a baseball cap complete the look. 

If you wanted to make this outfit even more casual, wear your puff vest with a matching sweatsuit set that can take you from morning to evening.
