If you’ve been on my blog for longer then five seconds then you know I’m a style lover. I personally love how fashion gives you an outlet to showcase your personality in such a fun and interesting way. When it comes to style, chic and effortless is the name of my game and has been for quite some time. If you’re a chic aficionado like me or looking for easy tips to transition your style into a chic one then I’ve got you covered in this blog post.
Tip One: When in Doubt, Wear a Blazer
One of my top clothing essentials for looking chic is absolutely a blazer. Blazers easily adds a touch of class to any look. From jeans and a T shirt to sneakers and shorts, throwing on a blazer will spruce up your look. I personally recommend oversized or long line options as they are more in style.
Tip Two: Wear Sunglasses
If you think you’ll look effortlessly chic without a pair of sunnies then think again. Just kidding! But really, sunglasses are a great affordable way to look chic. Larger frames typically do the trick and square shape lenses are even better. Click here to check out super cute sunglasses that are all under $100.
Tip Three: Remember, Less is More
When you think of any ultra chic style icon one thing they have in common is that they typically don’t let accessories overpower their looks. Try to keep your jewelry down to the essentials. For example, if you’re wearing a high neck long sleeve top skip wearing a bracelet and opt for a gorgeous pair of earrings instead. Keep your outfits more streamlined and always remember that less is more!
Tip Four: Always Have a Gorgeous Bag on Hand
If you’re a bag lover like me then this should be an easy one! Adding a nice bag to your look will always take your chic level up a notch. Also, don’t ever think it only has to be a designer bag. There are gorgeous affordable bags on the market that can absolutely do the trick. I personally think smaller bags in neutral colors work best but choose the size that works best for your height/body type.
Tip Five: Incorporate Luxe Textures into Your Outfits
Textures are absolutely necessary in an effortlessly chic wardrobe. Textures such as tweed and satin are a few great options that will give you that luxe look. Tweed blazers like the one I’m wearing above and satin dresses/skirts are my ultimate favorites!
Bonus Tip: Neutrals Are Your Friends!
I love wearing neutral colors because they are effortless and very easy to style. Great colors to build any chic outfit from are blacks, creams, white, tans, grays, and navy. These crisp colors make outfits very clean cut and help streamline your look. An easy outfit idea is a cream satin blouse, black trousers, and black pumps.
Hope these tips help in your chic outfit endeavors!
