Huge thanks to Gap and Collective Voice for sponsoring this post
Let’s talk simple tips for how to update casual outfits! I know many of you love to dress in a way that’s updated and modern but also want the clothes that you invest in to have staying power. I’m partnering with Gap and Collective Voice to share four essentials that you can easily incorporate to update casual outfits—that you’ll also be able to wear later on!
I always tell you that great style starts with having the right pieces, and Gap makes it so easy to look both casual and put together. Their styles are clean and modern but also have a bit of a laid back vibe—they never feel stuffy, and I love that. When you add pieces like that, it’s easy to mix and match and create updated, put together, casual outfits! I also really love that Gap carries a large variety of sizes for denim, from regular, tall, and petite lengths and sizes 23 to 35! On top of that, Gap has programs towards sustainability efforts, such as making products responsibly with their Washwell program which reduces water usage and waste, and making garments with 100% organically grown cotton or 100% recycled polyester which reduces waste.

Here are four styles that you can easily incorporate to update casual outfits this spring!
SIZING: I’m 5’6″ and usually S/M or 6 in clothes and 8.5 to 9 in shoes.
Tan and white stripes is a classic and timeless combination, but it’s particularly popular right now and will update casual outfits easily! I love pieces like that because it means you’ll still look classic and stylish when you wear them, even when they move out of the spotlight.
This tee in particular is really soft, a bit thick, and drapes well. How a garment hangs or drapes goes a long way in making something look stylish, so a tee that drapes well like this makes it easy to look put together! It comes in 16 colors and in regular, tall, and petite sizes. See them all HERE. I’m wearing size S.
As for the jeans, I love how white jeans freshen up outfits for spring! This pair is soft, fairly thick, and not see-through. It has some stretch, and the distressing adds a bit of edge, a more casual vibe, and visual interest. These jeans come in sizes 24 to 35 in regular, short, and tall lengths, and in tall and petite sizing, HERE. I love how inclusive Gap’s denim options are! I’m wearing size 28/6.
Also, if you’re looking for an easygoing tote for spring and summer, this one is really lightweight and flexible. It has a single button closure and large front pocket. It works really well with super casual outfits. Check it out HERE.
2. Wide Leg Pants
Adding wide leg pants to your wardrobe will create modern outfits! Make sure you define your waist since wide leg pants add so much volume, whether with a partial tuck, knotting a tee, or doing a full tuck like I’m doing here.
These wide leg linen pants will be great for warmer spring weather and into the summer. And they are really comfy! And super important: These are not your scratchy, cheap-looking linen pants. These feel soft and of good quality! Like I said earlier, having the right pieces makes a huge difference in how stylish your outfits look, and having quality linen pants like these will instantly make your casual outfits look better! These pants also have a zipper fly and some elastic in the back of the waistband for more flexibility and comfort. I really like these pants, and they make wearing something casual like linen pants feel stylish and polished simply because of their quality! They come in 5 colors and in regular, tall, and petite sizes, HERE. I’m wearing size S.
Perhaps the easiest way to update casual outfits is to wear some green! Green is really prevalent in stores right now, and I’m here for it. This is another look that is in the spotlight right now but will also totally have lasting power later on.
This tank is really soft and doesn’t lose its shape. It’s a great basic that you can pair with jeans, shorts, and linen pants like these! It comes in 15 colors and in sizes XXS to XXL and in regular, tall, and petite sizes. See them all HERE. I’m wearing size S.
4. Kick Fit Jeans
Another way to update your outfits is to incorporate different pant silhouettes, like these kick fit jeans. This style offers an updated silhouette that hugs your hips and thighs to provide shape. This pair of jeans is thick and sturdy, and it holds you in securely without being too stiff. These jeans are available in sizes 23 to 35 in short, regular, and tall lengths, and in tall and petite sizes, HERE. I’m wearing size 28/6.
If you’ve been wondering how to update casual outfits this spring, those are some styles that you can add! And remember, even if you don’t incorporate the specific colors or prints, if you even just get quality pieces like these, then it’ll go a long way in creating more modern outfits!
