Lately, I’ve been wearing a lot of black and cream, here are five minimal casual outfit ideas for the between-season weather.
5 MINIMAL CASUAL OUTFIT IDEAS
Now, it wasn’t all that long ago that I shared my last run down of outfit ideas pairing black with cream. I realise I’m becoming a broken record here. But let’s just admit black and cream (or white or even off-white) are a classic pairing not unlike a well-loved and potentially worn down old record. It’s the Beatles White album, potentially. Or maybe Revolver.
So here I am again, this time with five minimal casual outfit ideas involving black and cream that I’ve been wearing over the last few weeks. You will note, these are all very different from the previous offerings so, by now, I am hoping the outfit ideas and inspiration are rubbing off on you. That is, if like me, you want to get dressed with minimal fuss, feel confident and comfortable all day and gravitate towards neutrals as I do.
TANK TOP + JEANS
First off the rank? This cool tank top and jeans combo. This black tank came down to $10 when I bought two at Cotton On the other week and I’ve not stopped wearing it since. Definitely a decent price for the quality too. Teamed back with these comfortable high waisted jeans, strappy sandals (or black pumps if I was feeling more dressy) it works to be a cool, go-anywhere kind of day look.

DENIM DRESS + SNEAKERS
While I personally feel the length of this denim dress is longer on me than I’d like (mini skirts for life!) it’s such an easy-going dress. Denim is so hardy too. This one was from Boden, who always impresses me with quality essentials. Speaking of quality I might be a bit obsessed with these Chimi glasses too. I now own four pairs from the Swedish brand and they are amazing.
TANK TOP + CREAM DENIM SKIRT
As I said, I’ve been wearing this tank top a lot. Another chic but comfy piece on my repeat-regularly list is a cream denim skirt. This paper bag waist option from Free People is great with boots or a low heel too.

CREAM LINEN SHORTS SUIT
When I spotted this Elka Collective classic linen pinstripe blazer and shorts suit I fell head over heels. It’s chic, effortless and looks great dressed up or styled casually. Opting for shorts for the warmer weather is a different choice but I kinda love that unexpected take. Twin sets are always great to invest in- they become so versatile when mixed with other wardrobe staples.

LINEN MAXI DRESS + LEATHER JACKET
When this maxi dress was kindly sent to me by the lovely team at Bohemian Traders as a surprise I was not so sure I’d wear it. I’m not a huge maxi length fan. However, I love the fabric and simplicity of the design. Wearing it, everyone said how much they loved it. So much so I was pleasantly surprised. Maybe I shouldn’t knock the old maxi length option quite so much. What do you think? Let me know below.
