Casual style has come a long way from its humble origins. Back in the early 20th century, formal attire was the norm for everyday wear. But as society evolved, so did fashion. The 1950s saw the rise of “Ivy League” style, marked by relaxed blazers, chinos, and loafers—a precursor to today’s casual elegance.
In the late 1970s in the United Kingdom, football matches became a fashion statement. Among the working class, a movement of football hooligans, known as “hooligans,” emerged, and many of them were skinheads. The distinctive dress code of skinheads was complemented by clothing featuring the logos of their favorite football teams. This attire attracted a lot of attention from the police at stadiums, so to blend into the crowd, hooligans began wearing more neutral clothing. They started mixing sportswear from English brands with classic pieces. Over time, these individuals came to be known as “casuals” (unobtrusive). Thanks to football fans, the casual style became popular worldwide.
Fast forward to the present, and casual fashion is all about comfort, versatility, and individual expression. It’s about looking effortlessly chic while embracing sustainable choices. Here is a casual capsule curated from eco-friendly fashion brands. Enjoy it.
