15 Best Casual Outfit Ideas To Wear To Any Event

Finding an outfit to wear to an event can be a challenge, especially if you don’t want to spend an excessive amount of money on something you can never wear again. This is why it’s a great idea to buy something that is nice enough to wear to any event, whilst being casual enough to wear on a normal day out. So here are 15 casual outfit ideas to wear to any event!

1. Floral Maxi Dress

Be it a wedding or just a day trip out with friends, a floral maxi dress is the perfect item to wear to any event. Style with some wedged sandals and some delicate jewelry for a formal event, or some flat gladiators and sunglasses for a day out. I love this ASOS Woven Wrap Maxi Beach Dress, and think it’s perfect for any event, especially during the summer!

2. Skirt Top Co-ord

A really cute skirt top co-ord is an adorable and fun look which can be worn to any event, whilst being mixed and matched or worn with different accessories for a super casual day! For more of an evening/event look, wear with some strapped pumps and a light jacket; and for a day look, consider wearing a t-shirt with the skirt, or some high-waisted jeans with the top. I absolutely love the Natasha Lace Cop & Full Midi Skirt Co-Ord Set from Boohoo!

3. High Waisted Culottes

Culottes are a look which have really come back into style over the last few seasons, and they work well in both a formal and casual setting. Wear with a casual jumper and some trainers for regular day wear, and some strapped sandals and a blouse for an event look. I love these Cropped Trousers with Tie from Zara!

4. Bell Sleeve Blouse

Wear a bell sleeve blouse with some formal fitted trousers and some cute pumps for an event, or some shorts and mules for a casual day look. I think this Bell Sleeved Blouse from Topshop is perfect!

5. Tulle Skirt

Everyone knows the skirt that Carrie wears in Sex and the City, and although it may seem a little over the top for day wear, when styled correctly it can be worn to any occasion. Try with a long sleeved jumper and some boots for a casual day look, and some stilettos and an off shoulder top for an event. I love this Grey Tulle Hanky Hem Midi from New Look!

6. Pleated Midi Skirt

Pleated skirts are a great look that fit most body types, and something that any girl should have in their wardrobe. A pleated skirt can be worn with a super cute lace top and some wedged sandals for an event, or a loose t-shirt tucked into the waistband with some stylish tennis shoes for a day look. I love this ASOS Pleated Midi Skirt in Velvet and think it would work great for any occasion!

7. Jumper and Skater Skirt Combo

As the days begin to get colder, a jumper and skater skirt combo is the perfect outfit to wear for any occasion. The beauty of this outfit is that with the right hairstyle and bag choice, very little has to be changed between a day and night look; an updo and small clutch for night and natural hair with a larger handbag for the day. I love this Petite Rust Crop Rib Jumper from Miss Selfridge, paired with this Emani Textured Panel Skater Skirt from Boohoo!

8. Jumbo Trousers

As with most things in life, bigger is better, and that is no different with this jumbo trousers look. These great trousers can be worn with a fitted blouse and some pointed pumps for an event look; or a loose t-shirt and your favourite pair of trainers for your day look. I love these Black Wide Leg Trousers from River Island!

9. Jumpsuit

Jumpsuits have been in style for a long time now, so if you don’t already have one in your wardrobe, you need to invest. Jumpsuits work in both casual and formal settings, when styled well. Wear with some strapped pumps and chunky bracelets for a formal look; or some flats and a hat for a more casual look. I think this Dorothy Perkins Black Ruffle Jumpsuit would work great for any occasion!

10. Fitted Blazer

When most people think of blazers they think of work suits and bad shoulder padding, however, a nice fitted blazer can be worn to a multitude of events when styled correctly. Wear draped over the shoulders with a mid-length dress and pumps for an event; and some fitted jeans and boots for a day look. I love this Unique 21 Tailored Blazer from Next!

11. Oversized Dress

Wear an oversized dress with some bold jewelry and well styled hair for a special occasion; and casual hair and sandals for day wear. I love this Long Smock Shirt Dress from COS!

12. Cami Slip Dress

The cami dress is a great piece, as it is so easy to style for any event. Wear with either a short or long sleeve t-shirt and some boots for day wear; or skip the top and wear some statement jewelry for an event look.  I love this Black Peplum Hem Midi Slip Dress from New Look!

13. High Waisted Shorts

Wear high waisted shorts with a cute lace jumper and flats for day wear; and a same coloured blouse and heels for an event. I love these High Waited Shorts from Zara!

14. Shirt Dress

The shirt dress is a great casual-to-occasion wear look, as it only requires a small amount of styling to create the variation. Buy an unfitted Shirt Dress and wear loose with some boots or flats for day wear, or a chunky belt and some heeled sandals for occasion wear. I love this White Textured Long Sleeve Shirt Dress from Silk Fred!

15. Cigarette Trousers

Cigarette trousers are a flattering fit on most women; they are a great item to have in your wardrobe for occasion and casual wear. For casual wear, style with some mules and a plain block colour t-shirt; or for a special occasion, style with some mid heeled pumps and a loose blouse. I love these trousers from PrettyLittleThing!
