dressed up and dressed down—you can have it all!

October 27, 2021

Did you know that cabi lets you have it all? We’ll explain. Thanks to versatile designs that can be mixed, matched, accessorized, and customized, styling your wardrobe for casual and dressed-up occasions has never been easier, and we’re about to show you how!

Today, we’re featuring four of our favorite basics, but don’t get us wrong…these pieces are anything but basic! On deck, we have our Snug Cardigan (a light gray, button-up cardi), the Slinky Turtleneck (a neutral striped tee), the Touring Jacket (a moss-hued zip-up), and the Printed Lean Legging (our ultra-comfortable floral leggings). With these four pieces, you’ll be able to maximize the potential of your wardrobe and get more wear out of pieces you already own, which, after all, is the goal, right? To help us style each piece casual and dressed up, we brought in two members from the cabi Home Office, Juniper and Liv, who are normally behind the camera on our Video Team. Learn about the details behind each of their camera-ready outfits below.

Simply Chic

Solid colors are a great choice when you want to keep things casual. Style your favorite denim back to a simple black tank and printed belt.

Grayscale It Up

When elevating your style, turn to your color palettes. A grayscale look is perfect for an upscale moment. This outfit styles the white, structured Tied-Up Shirt with black leggings and a skin print topper.

Warm & Toasty

Take a seat by the fire in the Campfire Pullover, a longer length sweater with a gorgeous cowl neckline. For an extra dose of coziness (and a welcome pop of pattern!), reach for the Printed Lean Legging.

Top It Off

Sometimes, when going for a dressed-up look, all you need is an elegant topper. Reach for the Heritage Coat to dial up your style. 

Cozy Casual

Keep things comfy in an oversized cardigan and an ultra stretchy legging. This look is the definition of a feel-good outfit.

She’s A’Blazing

A suited look has “dressed up” written all over it. The camel and black striped Slinky Turtleneck pairs effortlessly back to the brown Academy suit.

Mellow in Yellow

The vibrant, solid-hued Ease Turtleneck matches back to the Touring Jacket for a yellow-on-yellow effect. Then, balance out your look with denim.

Fierce & Fabulous

This outfit is so easy, yet so fierce! Style the leopard print Selma Dress back to the Touring Jacket for a pop of color.

And just like that, we were able to style two totally different looks for our favorite staple pieces from the Fall 2021 Collection. Here’s the takeaway…when building your wardrobe, versatility is key and will expand the possibilities of your closet. The pieces you own can have many lives and can be worn in so many different ways, so why limit yourself? Have fun experimenting. Happy styling!
