Level up your casual fashion arsenal with two ensembles: ‘Off Duty’ and ‘Career Chic’ created by styling up your on hand denims…

Everyone has a pair of good ol’ jeans. Whether you’ve acquired the iconic, blue, denim jean or its coloured, styled counterpart, the jean is a pant that has occupied space in our wardrobes ever since well…ever. As a teenager, I practically lived in them. So, to give a new twist on the usual, go-to casual look, I’ve put together two super simple ensembles made up of pieces that every woman owns. Perfect for those days when your style motto is ‘no-fuss-minimal’. My ‘Off-Duty’ ensemble is made up of the usual culprits; a loose-fitted tee and jeans which are practically the fashion definition of ‘casual’. Add a blazer and you’ve got an instant sophistication. Swap heels for your favourite sneaker and you’re ready for your next travel adventure. These pants are a skinny, stretch fit that are surprisingly comfortable (you could think of them as yoga pant’s flashy, dressed up cousin). The ‘Career Chic’ ensemble is a favourite for attending meetings. The button-up blouse gives just enough corporate feel to forgive the casual nature of your jeans. Pair with heels and a statement clutch and you’ve got an outfit that can get you through a long day of being a #GirlBoss.
If you want to level up your casual fashion arsenal – you can visit Tryst; a brand (carried in Myth, 2/F Greenbelt 5, Makati) that carries the pants, tops and the clutch bags I wore in this story. They also carry menswear too (because, who says girls get to have all the fun?)
