Chata's Daily Tips

BREEZY EVENING PERFECTION

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: A fitted black button-down shirt can easily double-up as a lightweight jacket, perfect for breezy autumn evenings. Leave it open to reveal a gorgeous vest or camisole in dramatic tones of neutrals. Pair with dark jeans and fashionable heels for an edgy look. COPY CREDIT: Chata Romano Image Consultant, Marlise du Plessis IMAGE CREDIT: Pinterest

MARVELLOUS MARSALA

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: Marsala continues its magical reign for this season leading colour. A shift dress, with a matching longer length jacket (the same length as the dress) is so very elegant. Accessorize with a smaller, ladylike bag and stylish patent heels for head-turning glamour. COPY CREDIT:  Chata Romano Image Consultant, Erika Swanepoel IMAGE CREDIT: Pinterest

HOT PINK IS HOT!

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: Spruce up your classic jeans and basic T-shirt with accessories in hot pink and on-trend prints. If your skin tone gets hot very quickly or you blush easily avoid bright pinks; opt for softer shades of pink. A denim jacket is a wardrobe staple, perfect for not-yet-warm spring evenings – ensure the shade differs from your jeans to keep the look trendy.

A TOUCH OF GLAM

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: The two on-trend items that contribute to this very sexy, elegant look is the black short zipper jacket and the animal trimmed stiletto boots. Opt for a longer jacket and bootleg jeans if you have a fuller body shape. Paint the town red with a gorgeous red silky top and sparkling accessories.

CASUAL COMFORT

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: We love the delicious combination of teals and tans. Opt for a high round neck if you have a long neck and a lower V-neck if you have a short neck. The leopard printed hat adds the element of interest. COPY CREDIT: Chata Romano Image Consultant, Karyn Lindes IMAGE CREDIT: Pinterest

A+ FOR ACCESSORIES!

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: Transform a seemingly plain outfit into a stunning ensemble by adding interesting accessories! A jacket with a wide collar is perfect for narrow shoulders. A leather or leatherette skirt (not plastic leather) is a great alternative to traditional textures. COPY CREDIT: Chata Romano Image Consultant, Carla Pattison IMAGE CREDIT: Pinterest

SPRING IN YOUR STEP

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: The chilly winter days are over but summer hasn’t arrived as yet. While you wait patiently opt for summer tops under your jackets – and a lightweight thermal spencer you can put on or take off easily. A shaped jacket is the perfect style choice if you want to look slimmer – boxy jackets look boxy! COPY CREDIT: Chata Romano Image Consultant, Liza Spammer IMAGE CREDIT: Pinterest

PURE ELEGANCE

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: One of our favourite winter must-haves is a classic stone coat. Team it with a matching stone handbag to create endless mix-and-match ensembles, from casual-smart (with jeans) to smart (with your classic office little black dress). Keep the look interesting by adding a hint of print, like these fun animal printed pumps. Gold accessories add a touch of warmth and elegance.

STYLISHLY CASUAL

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: We love the idea of this super casual yet super stylish ensemble. A longer jersey, or top, will hide all figure concerns, like a full tummy or wider hips. You can never go wrong with tan accessories, so extremely versatile! COPY CREDIT: Chata Romano Image Consultant, Karyn Lindes IMAGE CREDIT: Stylish Eve

CASUAL YET STYLISH!

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: This is such a divine colour combination! A polo neck, in various colours, is such a good winter investment. You can dress it up, or down. Invest in a polo neck if you have a balanced to long neck; opt for a cowl neck if you have a short or wide neck. COPY CREDIT: Chata Romano Image Consultant, Liza Spammer IMAGE CREDIT: Pinterest

ROYAL COMFORT

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: A perfect casual-chic outfit! A royal blue cardi-jacket, a winter-white draped T-shirt, stone coloured skinny pants and gorgeous accessories. The cardi-jacket is (a) comfortable and (b) can hide a fuller hip or bottom. The draped T-shirt can also hide a rounded tummy.

BEAUTIFUL NEUTRALS

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: We adore an animal printed trench jacket for its ability to make a statement and to add interest to an otherwise neutral outfit. If you have a fuller body shape then swop the colours on your top and skirt by wearing the lighter colour at the top and the darker colour at the bottom.

      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 🙂
