FABULOUSLY CASUAL

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: White shorts are hot, hot, hot this summer season. If your legs don’t allow you to wear shorts then opt for ¾ pants instead. Complement with on-trend accessories to complete this casual, yet super stylish, ensemble. COPY CREDIT: Chata Romano Image Consultant, Liza Spammer IMAGE CREDIT: Pinterest

TASTE OF TURQUOISE

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: Cool down your go-to jeans and white-t-shirt on a hot summer’s day with accessories in turquoise and silver – we adore its crisp, fresh feel.  Matching sunnies will introduce a functional element of fun. Opt for a darker shade of denim in the latest 90s-flared style to effortlessly balance out fuller hips. COPY CREDIT: Chata Romano Image Consultant, Marlise du Plessis IMAGE CREDIT: Pinterest

CLASSIC AND STYLISH

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: Gorgeous accessories have the power to turn an ordinary outfit into a stylish one. A draped top both conceals and flatters. If you are very short, with a fuller figure, then wear your lighter colour at the top and your darker colour at the bottom.

SUMMER COOL GREEN

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: We love how simple it is to be on trend this summer. An off the shoulder top in green co-ordinated with stone pants looks cool and refreshing on a warm summer day. A long top is ideal if you have a rounded tummy or fuller bottom. The overall green accessories finish this casual outfit beautifully.

ALL-WHITE INSPIRATION

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: The ever popular head-to-toe white trend continues and inspires this summer season. It’s so easy to transform your casual day look to a glamorous evening look – simply swop your casual ankle boots, or flat sandals, with a statement necklace and sexy high heels.

TRENDY IN SUMMER STYLE

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: High-waisted pants are one of the super-hot-trendy styles this summer season. Avoid if you are very short-waisted, opt for regular or hipster styles instead. High-waisted styles look fabulous when defined with a belt. The heel height is optional – either comfy flats or gorgeous heels, both work well.

A RAY OF SUNSHINE

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: This casual ensemble is sure to put a spring in your step, whether it’s collecting the kids from school or meeting your girlfriends for lunch! Bright pops of colour found in the textured tote and striped top add interest to an otherwise plain white vest, jeans and sneakers outfit. Complete this look with on-trend hooped earrings.

STATEMENT GOLD

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: The all-time classic and absolute must-have black dress is stunningly updated with statement studs. To this fabulous ensemble add bold gold accessories in the form of statement stilettos and a clutch bag. If you have a fuller figure then wear a looser top with tapered pants to create a similar effect. COPY CREDIT: Chata Romano Image Consultant, Marié-Louise de Jager IMAGE CREDIT: Stylish Eve

FASHION FORWARD

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: Tangerine is one of this season’s must-have colours and instantly adds a modern edge to basic colours. For a smarter look replace shorts with ¾ pants and flat shoes with colourful high-heeled wedge shoes in your favourite summer print, be it florals, stripes, animal prints or an abstract design.

DELICIOUS DENIM

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: We continue our love affair with versatile denim, this time dressed up for after-work cocktails with another summer must-have; nudes. A nude draped top will enhance a smaller bust and skim softly over fuller hips. Complete this gorgeous look with nude matching high-heels and a bling clutch bag, adding patent black accessories for a sophisticated, elegant look.

GORGEOUS GREEN

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: This stunning outfit is strong yet feminine. The combination of green and tan is very striking. The bow is feminine, adding softness. A high neckline is perfect if you have a long neck; if you have a short neck then opt for a lower neckline instead.

OFF-THE-SHOULDER GLAMOUR

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: An off-the-shoulder dress is so glamorous, so perfect. Shoulders are a naturally slim part of the body so this trend will therefore suit most body shapes. We suggest you avoid this trend if you have wide shoulders, an off-the-shoulder style will make your shoulders look even wider.

      Thank you for your post Nerine – there are some divine outfits aren’t there?! You won’t find these outfits in SA stores (we source the ensembles internationally) but hopefully our tips will give you the inspiration to co-ordinate a similar outfit from your existing wardrobe or find it in a store near you. My DAILY TIP page is posted for the pure pleasure of sharing my knowledge and helping women with their colour and style choices. I trust you continue to enjoy our colour and style tips 🙂
