WEEKEND WINNER

WEEKEND WINNER SAT 32

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: Update a traditional cardigan with an on-trend cable knitted cardigan. Co-ordinate with a shaped white T-shirt (or shirt), jeans and rich luxurious tan accessories. If you have a fuller tummy opt for a slimmer belt, or no belt at all. COPY CREDIT: Chata Romano Image Consultant, Riana Meyer IMAGE CREDIT: Stylish Eve

FRIDAY WORK-WEAR!

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: We love that jeans can look elegant, yet casual. Wearing a tailored jacket with a beautiful shirt and smart denims on Friday is work-wear perfection. The shirt can be tucked into the jeans, worn with an interesting belt, or over the jeans to hide any figure concerns.

STYLISH AND COMFY

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: An embellished collar is so on-trend! And we love that it can be dressed up, or down. Wear it with a figure hugging pencil skirt and heels to the office, or casually with jeans and ladylike pumps. Add animal printed pumps for a modern edge.

CULOTTES MAKE A COMEBACK

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: Culottes – wide legged pants – are back! Perfect if you are tall and slim. If you are shorter, or have a fuller body, the wide leg will only make your legs look wider. Opt for tapered jeans instead. Add on-trend items (trendy cardi, crisp white shirt, animal printed and tan accessories) and you are all set to look sensational.

DIVINE NOT DISTRESSED

DIVINE NOT DISTRESSED

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: This is the perfect outfit for a relaxed weekend or a night out on the town. The combination of distressed jeans, with a white T-shirt, jeans and leather jacket is just divine! COPY CREDIT: Chata Romano Image Consultant, Liza Spammer IMAGE CREDIT: Stylish Eve

GET ‘SPOTTED’ THIS WINTER

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: A classic grey suit is instantly updated with a pop of colour. A good quality jacket is an investment, it’s versatile and it’s durable. Avoid double breasted styles if you have a fuller figure, opt for single breasted styles instead. COPY CREDIT: Chata Romano Image Consultant, Erika Swanepoel IMAGE CREDIT: Pinterest

AN ELEMENT OF INTEREST

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: A pretty floral scarf adds an element of interest to this casual ensemble. Longer flowing tops will conceal any tummy, hip or bottom concerns. Tan and gold accessories complete this look so perfectly. COPY CREDIT: Chata Romano Image Consultant, Mirella Pearson IMAGE CREDIT: Stylish Eve

WORKING STYLE

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: This smart-casual outfit is perfect for Casual-Fridays. The overall tones of blues – from a gorgeous pleated top, jeans and stunning accessories – to a stunning winter white jacket is just stunning. Choose darker, tailored jeans for a smarter end-result and skinny jeans for a more casual end result. COPY CREDIT: Chata Romano Image Consultant, Alia Motani IMAGE CREDIT: Pinterest

PRETTY IN FLORALS

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: We are loving the floral print trend this season. This beautiful shift dress combines the florals in maroon, grey and summer gold which is fresh and vibrant for balmy summer days. To complete this look add maroon heels and bangle, a cool grey handbag and a gorgeous summer gold cardi. COPY CREDIT: Chata Romano Image Consultant, Karyn Lindes. IMAGE CREDIT: Pinterest

STYLISHLY CASUAL

STYLISHLY CASUAL THURS

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: Invest in a comfortable cardigan in a neutral colour; it will remain in fashion for years to come. Combine it with bright colours like orange (perfect for all skin tones) and/or an interesting print. Add on-trend animal printed shoes for the element of interest.

TANGY TANGERINE

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: We adore the versatility of a shift dress, in grey, as a wardrobe staple item. Add some zest with a bright pop of tangerine accents. A peplum-style jacket is equally perfect for adding shape to a slim figure, or disguising fuller hips. COPY CREDIT: Chata Romano Image Consultant, Marlise du Plessis IMAGE CREDIT: Pinterest

PRETTY IN PLUM

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: Our respect for the versatility of stone continues; this time co-ordinated with plum. The shawl collar of the jacket and the soft frill of the top will, perfectly, enhance a small bust. Complete the outfit by adding elegant accessories in colours that complement.

      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 🙂
