CLASSIC CHANEL

The classic Chanel style by Chata Romano Image Consultants

CHATA’S DAILY TIP:  A Chanel-style jacket is a timeless classic item. We love its versatility; it can be teamed with a smart skirt or trousers, and looks equally gorgeous when dressed down with your favourite jeans and T-shirt. Add glamorous heels and accessories for a night on the town, or swop for casual ballet flats. So many ways to look stylish!

A VERSATILE MUST-HAVE

A VERSATILE MUST-HAVE Stone Jacket

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: A stone jacket is a versatile wardrobe must-have! It co-ordinates with all your favourite winter colours such as teal blue, burnt orange, pumpkin and emerald green.  Wear with smart chocolate brown pants to the office or with jeans on Fridays for a casual smart look.

MARVELLOUS MARSALA

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: Marsala returns as a firm fashion favourite this winter and is gorgeous for Deep and Rich skin tones. We, especially, love it when co-ordinated with dramatic black and on-trend animal prints. COPY CREDIT: Chata Romano Image Consultant, Marlise du Plessis IMAGE CREDIT: Pinterest

WEEKEND PERFECTION

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: Update your basic navy jersey and blue jeans with a statement necklace that will be guaranteed to turn heads! Adding tan accessories this casual outfit becomes oh-so-trendy. COPY CREDIT: Chata Romano Image Consultant, Monica Groome IMAGE CREDIT: Pinterest

A MODERN CLASSIC

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: A tailored jacket and shift dress is the ultimate modern classic! We love the colour contrast of a tailored jacket in a basic colour co-ordinated with a shift dress in a fashionable colour. Add on-trend accessories (loving the snakeskin printed shoes!) to complete this stylish ensemble. COPY CREDIT: Chata Romano Image Consultant, Monica Groome IMAGE CREDIT: Pinterest

IN-BETWEEN SEASONS

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: A shaped parka is a brilliant must-have for the in-between season we having. Choose bright colours to brighten up your classic white T-shirt and blue jeans combination. Add interesting accessories, in on-trend prints and textures, to modernize your outfit. COPY CREDIT: Chata Romano Image Consultant, Marlise du Plessis IMAGE CREDIT: Pinterest

WORK IT IN GREY

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: Grey can be so dull and draining. Not anymore! Update your traditional conservative grey jumper by adding on-trend accessories – some spectacular statement earrings, a gorgeous tan bag and comfy midnight blue pumps.

THE UPDATED CARDI

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: Stone makes a big comeback this winter season in coats, jackets and cardigans. Adding a stone cardigan, in an updated big wrap-around collar, is the perfect way to make a classic white T-shirt and blue jeans work (opt for a regular collar if you have wide shoulders).

A GREAT INVESTMENT

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: A well-cut skirt in a good fabric is a good investment for any wardrobe. The best skirt lengths are (a) 4 – 6 cm’s above your knees if you have good knees (b) mid-to end knee, if you have good calves and ankles and (c) at the end of your calf muscle or ankle length if the first two options don’t pertain.

THE LONG AND SHORT OF IT

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: Marsala and grey is a stunningly striking colour combination. A printed scarf in all the tones brings the ensemble together so perfectly. Wear a scarf around your neck if your neck is balanced or long. If you have a short neck then best wear a longer scarf.

SMART SOPHISTICATION

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: Clutch bags are essential for the working woman who also goes out when the sun goes down. This fabulous versatile accessory truly works 24/7; it co-ordinates with a smart business suit as well as a casual top, jeans and smart sandals.

TRENDY TEXTURES

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: Bring warmth to a breezy day with this gorgeous outfit! We love mixing different woven and knitted textures. Opt for satin, or silky fabrics, combined with jeans, for a smarter look. COPY CREDIT: Chata Romano Image Consultant, Rita Els IMAGE CREDIT: Pinterest

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 🙂
