5 SECRETS HOW TO LOOK EFFORTLESSLY CHIC

We are often not looking our best every time we walk out the door! But the whole process of looking great shouldn’t be that complicated. Here are some tips on how to get dressed easily and look effortlessly chic. Let’s start with your wardrobe. Looking effortlessly chic requires organization. Get rid of anything that’s permanently stained, torn or doesn’t fit any longer. Anything that’s out of style or doesn’t fit should be donated for someone else to enjoy. Once your wardrobe is down to stylish clothes you like to wear, analyze if they’re versatile. To look effortlessly chic requires crafty mixing and matching of your wardrobe items (dress and jacket, blazer and jeans, ladies dress pants and women fashion tops, pumps shoes and women leather belts, handbags and accessories).  Keep only the pieces that fit the bill. Now you can reward yourself with shopping. But before you go fill your wardrobe up again, here are some ideas to help you look effortlessly chic.

2. Effortlessly Chic Women are Masters at Layering

The next time you put pants and a shirt on, think about how you can layer the look. A good rule of thumb is to start with three layers: your basic outfit + jewelry + a scarf, belt, statement shoe or handbag. As you get more confident, don’t stop at three layers. Add a cardigan, hat or belt – follow your inspiration.

3. Don’t Be “Match-y”

Although a business suit is an essential wardrobe staple, mix it up sometimes. The same goes with jewelry or the old-fashioned rule of matching your handbag with your shoes. To look effortless means you didn’t overthink your outfit. Break sets up creatively. A great way to do this is by using the rule of three again: use three different colors or tones in your outfit and accessories.

4. Add a Little Casual to Your Look

Another way to make your look effortless is by not looking too stiff or contrived. Take the stiff, heavily starched clothing samples and wash them, giving them a very light steam instead of an iron. Show things not too perfectly rolled up or tucked in. It makes a big difference!

Have your dry cleaner lighten up on starch and skip the stiff pleats some like to add to trousers and blouses.
