LOVELY LAYERING

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: Layers are perfect for in-between seasons. A structured shirt with pocket detail will enhance a small bust. The pocket detail on the jeans will fill out a flat bottom. Introduce the element of interest in your accessories by wearing a bag with gorgeous patterned detail. COPY CREDIT: Chata Romano Image Consultant, Marie-Louise de Jager IMAGE CREDIT: Pinterest

CASUAL FRIDAY

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: A great casual Friday outfit! Horizontal monochrome stripes are so on trend this season; this print adds interest to your wardrobe basics like stone and black. Choose narrow (or vertical) stripes if you have a fuller shape to your figure. A fabulous bag that repeats the main colours in your outfit completes this picture perfectly!

ON-TREND UPDATES

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: Denim jackets / denim shirts / denim jeans can look super current just by updating your accessories. Introduce the latest high fashion prints by way of scarves, bags and shoes. If you have a flat tummy, a white vest is your style choice; if you have a rounder tummy a softer, draped blouse is your style choice.

MONOTONOUS TO MAGNIFICENT

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: We show how to take grey from monotonous to magnificent! This ensemble is oh-so-chic and glamorously elegant – a fabulously fashionable look for a woman that means business! If you have a Medium skin tone, opt for a stronger tone of grey, like charcoal. Silver accessories finish off this outfit so perfectly.

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.
