Hey I get it, comfort is king – especially when you’re out and about but that doesn’t mean that your style needs to suffer. Now don’t get me wrong, I love my leggings just as much as the next girl BUT there is a time and a place for athletic leggings (hiking, lounging around the house…). You do not need to pull on your leggings every time you head out the door.
When done right, casual fashion can be both comfortable AND chic. A great pair of fitted jeans or stretchy button-up pants, provided they fit correctly, can be just as comfortable as leggings and are often more figure flattering. A soft, draped trench and a stylish sweater easily replace a much-loved hoodie and opt for comfortable loafers or stylish sneakers as opposed to full on runners.
This month we’re exploring casual and comfortable yet chic outfits that will take you from the market to the shops to dinner. See how our ‘Girl in Focus’ Miranda Hudson dresses for a busy day out.

"Easy, embellished flats are a simple style upgrade and keep you comfortable on-the-go, while a classic turtleneck and light trench combo are perfect spring layers that can carry you through the chilly days of March! Grey denim is a favourite staple - personally I can make a case for these raw-hemmed Levis year-round!" - Miranda Hudson
