DFO Style Files: How to nail the classic, off-duty look

One of the hardest looks to get *just* right, classic off duty dressing is the perfect answer to your ‘what should I wear’ dilemma. Read on for some classic outfit maths to keep you looking effortlessly chic every time!

1 – Levi 501 Skinny Jeans: There’s a reason that Levi 501’s are bestsellers all over the world. Beloved by bloggers and bohemians alike, they don’t pander to fashion trends but have instead been an enduring staple through the decades. Universally flattering and available in a wide range of washes, these jeans are the perfect building block to start your classic outfit.

2 – A White Logo Tee: Denim pairs best with a crisp white tee and we love the detail in this logo tee from Calvin Klein. Known for their high-quality staples, Calvin Klein pieces will stand the test of time while the logo detail elevates the look.

3 – White Sneakers: A cornerstone of any wardrobe, a plain white sneaker adds an edge to any outfit. The platform detail in this Superga style helps elongate your legs and adds a point of difference to your style. They are also perfect paired with a sundress or linen shorts for all your summer outfit planning (or dreaming).

4 – A Cross-Body Bag: While there’s a place in our heart for every handbag, a classic Cross-Body bag has to be our OG choice. Stylish enough for work and play, a Cross-Body fits all your essentials while leaving your hands free for more important things - like eating ice cream and watching TikTok at the same time. Those in the know already appreciate the understated elegance that is Furla’s calling card, but if you’re not familiar with this Italian superstar brand let us introduce you to your new favourite bag. Featuring a luxe, soft as butter leather and a front flap for added security, the ‘Mimi’ is the perfect everyday touch of luxury.

5 – A Gold Watch: Let us let you in on a styling secret – accessories can make or break an outfit. Simple and chic, the perfect watch can take you from the boardroom to brunch to a night out. We love Fossil’s Cambry Watch (well, all of their watches if we’re being honest) for adding a hint of understated decadence to every look.
