HERE'S HOW TO STRIKE A BALANCE BETWEEN CASUAL & FORMAL

HERE'S HOW TO STRIKE A BALANCE BETWEEN CASUAL & FORMAL

Have you guys had those days when a look/outfit felt either too casual or too formal and you just weren't able to strike a balance between formal and casual? Well, I've had plenty of such times when I looked at my wardrobe that's currently on the stage of overflowing and yet found nothing to wear. 

A lot of the problem, I feel, lies in our shopping habits. Habits of impulsive buying never end up doing a favor to you, do they? Some amount of planning is certainly needed to create a wardrobe that has something for every occasion. So here's what I'd recommend you fellas to do and myself too, buy pieces that are borderline formal like this H&M dress right here. 

It's got a nice cotton fabric that makes it a whole lot less formal but the cutesy bow and the X-strap back add some drama. You could totally rock such an outfit if you are lounging out and about in the city or meeting up with girlfriends for a brunch. 

Another way to strike that balance is to do some style hacks, like this one right here that turns your simple formal shirts into a pussy-bow party top. And FYI, the whole process takes less than 60 seconds, bet you got to read it now

If you have more such suggestions, let me know by commenting below.
