3 Dressy Casual Looks for Spring
Boyfriend jeans, rompers, and chambray tops are staples for spring. These pieces are each perfect for the modern dressy casual - for an office that wants you to look nice but allows for denim or for cocktails at a chic but casual gallery event. It can be a little tricky to style these trends, but with a few key pieces in mind, it's easier than you think. Pictured: MISSGUIDED Premium Longline Suit Blazer Soft Pink
Slim boyfriends jeans are a trend that is here to stay. You can dress it down this summer with sandals and a tank. For a dressy casual look, give them an instant polished look with a blazer and pumps. This season try pairing them with pointy-toe slide pumps.

Rompers and jumpsuits have come a long way since they came back into style a few years ago. This season a dressy romper is a perfectly acceptable alternative to the cocktail dress. It's a great option if you want to dress up without wearing a dress. Pair a black romper with dressy wedges and a sleek handbag for a super-chic dressy casual look. To add a layer of warmth, top off the look with a floral-print blazer.

One of my favorite looks this spring is the chambray shirt. I keep seeing it paired with printed skirts like the jersey-knit pencil skirt pictured above. It's the perfect combination of dressy and casual. Pair it with a flared floral-print midi skirt for a slightly more dressy look.
