Tank Tops

If your vibe is the casual chic look then this styling tip is for you.

Add on your accessories; sunglasses, jewelries, a crossbody bag or a small shoulder bag will do just fine.

You can layer your outfit with a jacket depending on the weather.

Crop Tops

To recreate this style, you need a plain or stylish denim skirt and a plain or stylish crop top.

Now if you go for the stylish skirt, pair it with a plain crop top and vice versa.

Also consider the design of your fashion pieces as well, If you go for a flare denim skirt match with a fitted crop top. Om the other hand if your skirt is more streamlined, you’re free to match with a loose crop top.

This helps to balance out your outfit.


Different types of jackets give off different vibes. If you’re going for a more edgy look, pairing your denim skirt with a cropped leather jacket would do just fine.

This combination sounds a little weird, doesn’t it? Relax it’ll make sense soon.

To create this look, get a plain denim skirt, a graphic or plain T-shirt (preferably a graphic one) and a pair of sneakers, boots or platform heels.

Now you can decide to tuck the shirt in and accentuate your waist with a belt or tie the helm of your T shirt into a knot either by the side or at the back. You can also decide to tie it in front and tuck it in upwards, so the knot is less visible.

If you want to pull of this business casual look then you should consider this particular outfit style. It gives off a touch of corporate and casual vibe at the same time.

To recreate this look, Get a plain denim skirt, a white long-sleeved shirt and a pair of loafers. Here’s a visual example.
