Casual Wardrobe Staples for Biz-Leisure Style

Casual Wardrobe Staples for Biz-Leisure Style

Transforming Your Wardrobe to Match Your Lifestyle

 “Is this the end of fashion as we know it”  “Will we ever wear suits again?” Headlines in the media like this show the obvious shift in how we are choosing to dress in our everyday lives.

With the lines between work and home life blurred, we seek comfortable clothing but need pieces that look stunning in a Zoom meeting and transition into our in-person professional life, if and when required.  The blossoming fashion genre of Biz-Leisure, or also known as bleisure, has been born out of necessity created by the pandemic and this trend will no doubt morph into the way we dress throughout 2020  - and into our post pandemic lives.

Must-Have Casual Wardrobe Staples    

A mixture of polished pieces pared back with more comfortable attire defines this stule and infuses your existing wardrobe with new life and styling possiblities. 

There's a sense of confidence that beautifully tailored garment brings with it and this will always be relevant.  However, the shift towards casualising this style makes sense in the current global climate. Now when we say comfortable – we don’t mean frumpy and unkempt, so ditch the coffee-stained PJ’s - we won’t be pairing them back with anything – even in 2020!

Balance is key!

Luckily for you, you have already found Leina & Fleur – so you know that both the style and the comfort level of the designs are second to none and our siganture Jeresy can make even the most polished pieces lougewear-level chill.

From our relaxed and effortless wide-legged pants, to footless tights under your favourite L&F frock - our pieces can go from Zoom boardroom chic to bedroom and Netflix casual beautifully and with zero fuss.

5 Tips for Finding the Balanced Look to Pare Back your L&F wardrobe

Wear your L&F tops with jeans 

All of our tops are beautifully tailored and look fabulous with your Sammy's or your Monroe's but have you tried them with jeans? They look fantastic, and it really gives that relaxed feel, with still looking really 'put together'.

Wear your L&F dresses with trainers 

It's quite a trend now to wear almost any type of dress, no matter how dressy, with trainers or sneakers.  You can find so many different types of stylish trainers, and they are not only fashionable, but comfortable.  From maxis to midis and everything in between, this look will casualise and freshen up any look!

Throw on a denim jacket

If you have been watching our live videos on Facebook for a while now, you'll know we love adding a denim jacket to most of our styles to see how it works. Sure, our range of gorgeous tailored jackets look stunning, but a little denim can go a long way to casualise your look and get more mileage from your wardrobe.   Wearing your L&F dresses and separates with a denim jacket is a great weekend look.

Pro tip: try adding Denim jacket and trainers for double the casual style.

Footless stockings/tights

Under your frock, footless stockings or tights are a big YES! These comfy bottoms are fantastic, and a favourite of Fleurs. They give you the feeling of sweat pants and take your dress style to a little more casual and super cool level. Add a comfortable pair of flats and you're bleisured out!  

A Great Sweater Over Your L&F Pants

As you would already know, L&F pants are incredibly comfortable. We would go as far as saying they are more comfortable than sweat pants or tracky dacks and they look amazing! Throw on a casual sweater over the top and a pair of trainers and you will be living your Biz-Leisure best life. 

On a final note – we would love to see your bleisure combinations with L&F. Pop on over to our Wall of Fame and upload your picture to show us your style for the chance to win a $250 voucher!
