Making Casual Chic

Since opening our doors in 2005, my mission was to help ladies make ‘dressed up’ seem effortless andturn ‘casual into chic’. I was so tired of the bling and sequins and shiny fabrics that were abundant atthat time. I found it so hard to dress in what I liked, which was a total mix of casual and glam. And so Divine was born! My love of effortlessly chic clothes which don’t make you look like you tried too hard!

After having my two boys, now more than ever I understand the struggle of, dressing for school runs,playgrounds (and sometimes having to go straight to work) and still looking and  feeling like a tiny portion of your old stylish self! There is no questioning the drop in temperature, the darker eveningsand the absolute NEED for Cosy Casuals. So Here I have picked some of my favourite cosies which are definite Marys Must Haves!

First up is the softest jumper I have ever tried on! The Nigelle jumper from French label Frnch is one of
them jumpers that just hug you with the cosiness! I adore the bright blue colour which will really lifts
you on a cold winter’s morning. I have styled it here with Dr Denim super comfy High Waisted Jeans
which are the ultimate buy! I have added my winter white boots which I know many of you will not wear
on the school run…. but I will ;).

Next up is this beautiful bright knit from Danish Label Rue de Femme which I am in love with. I love the
grey and cream with a vibrant pop of yellow. ( I have mentioned before but I will say it again… yellow
makes you happy!) It really is so true! Add a shirt underneath for a slightly sharper look. These black
skinnies from Dr Denim are the most comfortable jeans ever and feel like a legging on! I have added my
Mango Woden runner but you could go more subtle with our black/white snakeskin version.
I am totally in love with this grey woollen Meville hoody from Danish label Second Female. A piece you
will wear the whole season long (and many to come as it is top quality). I love how grey goes with
everything but I just love this with my black Dr Denim jeans. Total comfort and ready for all the daily
chores with the boys.

And if, like me, you just love a dress, but it’s a winters morning and it’s hard enough to get out of the
bed and get the munchkins fed and ready, let alone think about what to wear!!! This Black ribbed Oversized Jumper dress by London label Paisie (also available in gorgeous Forest Green) is a winner! It is such a comfy and cosy dress which can totally be dressed up and down. I have kept it very understated
with black on black. Black Falke opaque tights and Black Ella studded block heel boots.

Just remember when you want to ditch the comfy leisure wear for daily life; we have an abundance of
cosy, casuals to keep you warm, comfortable and just a little chic 😉

Happy Shopping
