The New Casual

If I had to create an equation for the perfect weekend look (and let’s face it, I’m basically the John Nash of fashion- yes, Russell Crowe would also play me in the movie), it would look a little something like this: sweater + jeans + scarf + funky shoes = magic. Confused? Lemme break it down for you… The sweater says, “I’m fancy enough for surprise brunch (which everyone knows is the best kind of brunch), but not too fancy to run around the mall buying more surprise brunch sweaters”, the jeans very clearly communicate that whole laid-back casual, yet quasi-put together vibe (and cuffing those jeans to display your razor sharp, knife fight ankles takes it to a whole.nutha.level), the scarf because it’s winter, silly (let’s not be crazy, it’s definitely, like, 30 degrees outside. #unacceptable), and the funky shoes because… well, there’s no real rhyme or reason behind that- they’re just cool.

And there you have it! The perfect formula to put together a polished weekend look that doesn’t involve leggings (jeggings don’t count- it’s my party and I can wear skintight pants that look like jeans if I want to), hoodies, OR a snuggie (only acceptable when you’re working on your night cheese). Now, if you’ll all excuse me, I’ve got surprise brunch sweaters to buy…
