DRESS TO TRAVEL

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: Your go-to travel essentials: team a colourful T-shirt and matching pumps with a comfy pair of denims – throw on your lightweight trench jacket and a summery scarf and you are good to go! Be sure to match the weight of your scarf with your shoe. I.e. A pashmina will work with winter boots, and a summery light weight scarf will work with a pump or a pair of sandals.

BEDAZZLED

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: We love to dress jeans up or down and this stunning outfit will do both! For Casual Friday office chic opt for a tailored jacket and delicate metallic top. Take off the jacket and you’re instantly transformed for a night out on the town! COPY CREDIT: Chata Romano Image Consultant, Marlise du Plessis IMAGE CREDIT: Pinterest

A TOUCH OF CLASS

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: Accessories are a wonderful way to add interest to an outfit, especially if you don’t like wearing colour. Neutrals ensure a touch of class and cool greens off-set these neutrals beautifully. Avoid a belt in a contrasting colour if you have a full tummy or concerns over your hip area.

CASUAL-FRIDAY CHIC!

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: A fabulous Casual/Friday style option! Opt for double breasted styles if you are tall and slim; opt for single breasted styles if you are short with a fuller shape to your figure. COPY CREDIT: Chata Romano Image Consultant, Erika Swanepoel IMAGE CREDIT: Pinterest

FASHIONABLE FUCHSIA

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: Fuchsia is a wonderful colour for cold winter days. Pair with gold accessories; gold works best with warm colours, silver works best with cool colours. The neutral jacket brings a welcome contrast to the outfit. The scarf picks up all the colours and can be worn around your neck or tied to your handbag for some pizazz.

SMART, PROFESSIONAL AND FEMININE!

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: Need to look smart and professional at work and want to keep true to your feminine side? Add a feminine top, with a touch of lurex sparkle, under your structured suit with a pop of colour for your accessories. Keep your jacket on for work = super professional.

STYLISH CARDIGAN

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: When you think a woman wearing a grey cardigan a non-glamorous image springs to mind. Not in this case. This grey cardigan teamed with a sexy white T-shirt and black jeans looks super modern and fashionable. Chata Romano Image Consultant, Karyn Lindes. IMAGE CREDIT: Style and Fashion’s Facebook page

ON TREND: MASCULINE & FEMININE

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: Soften the masculine lines of an aviator leather jacket with feminine touches like this delicate floral top. Tan boots, in the richest shade of tan, should be at the very top of your winter shopping list. It’s always a smart idea to tone and blend your accessories with your outfit. COPY CREDIT: Chata Romano Image Consultant, Marlise du Plessis. IMAGE CREDIT: Pinterest

50 SHADES OF GREY

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: A neutral combination of (well, not 50) shades of grey is so sophisticated – not as severe as black, and suitable for all skin tones.  This clever shift dress will show off your curves, with soft draping over a rounded tummy to conceal figure concerns. Complement with a two-tone bag, and keep your shoes in the same colour, or darker, never lighter than your hemline.

NO MORE FLAT BOTTOM!

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: Turquoise and tan is a beautiful combination that always works well together. Jeans with detailed back pockets are great for women with flat bottoms, creating the illusion of shape. Tops with long, deep pleats work perfectly for women with fuller busts and rounded tummies.

GORGEOUS GRAPE

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: This grape and stone colour combination is fantastic if you have a Deep or Rich skin tone. Opt for the softer or brighter shades of purple if you have a Soft to Medium skin tone.

SHADES OF CARAMEL

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: Shades of caramel and stone = effortless elegance! Always accessorize these warm shades with gold, copper or bronze (all rich, warm tones) never with silver (cool tones work best with tones of grey).

      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 🙂
