The Art Of Dressing Down

Mariah Breitenberg/January 03, 2013

There is a certain art to dressing down. If done well, you can look even more chic and stylish than the girl sitting next to you in a dress and heels. Here are a few tips and tricks to get you started. 1. The more worn in, faded, shredded- the better. 2. Layers are your friend. Mix it up- try pairing a more traditional or elegant piece like a fur coat with a hooded sweatshirt to add interest to your outfit. 3. Oversized, chunky, knits, jackets, t-shirts, and even sweatpants are not only comfortable but are key pieces in any dressed down look.
