Puff Sleeved Button Down Blouses
There are many different kinds, this one for example has puff sleeves making it more breathable and casual. It's time to breakdown the habit of thinking polos are boring and that they only work for casual occasions.
Solid Color Tees
Plain Solid Colored Tee
In aiming for that relaxed but super busy aesthetic, the goal is not to try too hard. It's no surprise the star would opt for simpler outfits that focus on the fit and colors instead of something too loud.
Basic Colored Plain Tees
In learning, there is also un-learning. Simple styles such as her outfit below is very easy on eyes and simplistic. Just make sure you add little details like glasses or jewelry that also compliments the look and doesn't take away from comfort.
Bottoms : Wide leg pants
Black Wide Leg Pants

Skirts : Midi all the way
Designed or Printed Midi
Specifically pairing them with long sleeves, the look emits a mature and carefree aura that is unmatchable. In a series of photo Suzy styles them with either button ups or a blazer jacket is the perfect way to be warm and breathable.
Tulle Style Midi in Neutral Colors
Some midi skirts by default are already very dressy, if it's a solid color, pairing it with a multicolored or printed top makes it look more expensive and creative. She styled it as such below culminating in a perfect city look.
Dresses : Floral and Midi
What says girl next door better than a floral dress? Probably a bunch of other stuff but this one is a close second. Our girl doesn't like showing too much so a shorter dress as these need sleeves. Might not be everyone's go to but this aura is not for everyone.
Ones with different fabrics and puff sleeves are rare to come by these days! Wearing a low pony makes for the perfect picnic look. Try to opt for these styles in achieving her look as it exudes class and playfulness.
Plain Black Midi
If floral doesn't fit the look you're going or, she styles dark colored ones like these too. Layering is super important so mixing different textures and colors with similar shades becomes important.
Jackets : Leather Jackets
Classic Biker Style Leather Jacket
As someone who loves to bundle up, rocking leather jackets is only to be expected. To dress up such a manly piece. she accessorized it with a printed silk scarf for that day time look to give for a more feminine touch.
Cropped Leather Jacket
But this perhaps is the best way to style them. Pairing it with a textured midi skirt looks so elegant, chic and expensive. Something very high fashion and fit for the city lifestyle, as someone who lives such a life, this is no surprise.
Neutral or Darker Colored Blazers
If you want the look of a blazer but fear it might be too formal, oversized blazers is the best option. It gives the look but the size makes it more comfortable and laid back. This is best for more fancier leisurely activities such as brunch, see below.
Blazer in lighter tones
This can also be an option for a dress cover up, what better option can there be? As a cover up and not necessarily a major part of the whole ensemble, any neutral color will match seamlessly with any dress, long or short.
Hats : Berets
As part of the people who make trends as opposed to following them, berets are definitely in for this group. Suzy wears a bold red one for a series of photos, styling them would be best suited to monochromatic looks.
Classic Black Beret
In any case that it's not, the beret in its classic color black will do just fine. Don't over think and just wear it if your outfits is monochromatic or follows a cohesive set of colors.
Shoes : Doll Shoes
White Doll Shoes with Kitten Heel
The pair is a hit or miss but the star loves them, if you look for them she styles doll style shoes for casual and high fashion looks. Wearing ones with heels do wonders and gives it a chic edge open toe shoes won't.
Designed or Printed Doll Shoes
In another version, printed ones are more high fashion. It goes well with her slim silhouette and girly and flowy looks. Time to let go of the fear to mix match, if you find complimenting patterns that don't over power each other, you can end up with a one of a kind look, see below.
