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

MARVELLOUS METALLICS

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: A suit in a basic colour, such as stone, is a must-have for all working women as it co-ordinates with every single colour on your colour chart. We love a marvellous sequinned top for added glamour. Bronze accessories add the element of interest. COPY CREDIT: Chata Romano Image Consultant, Marida Pretorius IMAGE CREDIT: Stylish Eve

WALKING ON SUNSHINE

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: Our love for yellow continues this summer season – so happy, so fresh – like walking on sunshine! The classic jacket and denim combination is instantly modernised by using statement accessories such as a statement necklace, a statement clutch bag and statement shoes; all perfectly co-ordinated.

FASHIONABLY FEMININE

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: We love this fresh spring ensemble. A gorgeous floral top is a season must-have. Combine with medium shade jeans and a soft nude waterfall jacket for chilly days, or nights. Complete with nude accessories and delicate gold accessories for the ultimate fashionably feminine look. COPY CREDIT: Chata Romano Image Consultant, Karyn Lindes. IMAGE CREDIT: Pinterest

A SUMMER MUST-HAVE

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: An excellent fitting stone pant is the ultimate must-have for a versatile wardrobe. It co-ordinates with every single colour in your wardrobe – be it warm colours, cool colours or other basic colours. A single-breasted jacket is very slimming. Wedge heels showcase this outfits elegance and comfort. COPY CREDIT: Chata Romano Image Consultant, Erika Swanepoel IMAGE CREDIT: Pinterest

BOLD AND BRIGHT

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: These bold, bright colours are straight off the catwalk and so on-trend for summer. Team royal blue and summer gold with denims and sandals for casual weekend wear. Replace denims with navy Capri pants and heels for the office. COPY CREDIT: Chata Romano Image Consultant, Karyn Lindes. IMAGE CREDIT: Pinterest

SOFT FLORALS

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: We love this season’s romantic feel in soft florals. A white two-piece jacket and pant combination is versatile and easy to update to latest-trend status. If you have a fuller figure choose prints the size of your fist, or smaller. Nude heels are perfect for an overall white outfit.

COOL GREY

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: Grey and white combine into a cool, super-elegant combination, perfect for an afternoon meeting or business lunch.  A cross-over top flatters a fuller bust. Fit-and-flare trousers are so on–trend this season, and will gently balance out fuller hips. Accessorize in silver to match the cool tones of your outfit.

90’s INSPIRED FASHION

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: 90’s inspired ripped jeans are all the rage in various styles from boyfriend jeans to skinnies, from easy street style to smart-casual! Gladiator sandals and a crop tee takes this nineties trend to the next level. If you prefer a little more edge, heels and a biker jacket will do perfectly.

SLEEK AND CHIC

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: Modernize a classic red and black colour combination by wearing an on-trend sleeveless black waterfall jacket with a classic red shift dress. Update this classic look with bold, dynamic gold accessories. The overall ensemble looks polished and professional; perfect for the working woman!

PERFECT IN POLKA DOTS

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: This is the perfect work outfit for a sophisticated, fashion forward career woman. A peplum top flatters all body shapes, especially if you have a rounded tummy. Opt for a tapered skirt, not a wide skirt, mid-to-end knee length, for a flattering end result. The red accessories add a pop of colour.

TURQUOISE TANGO

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: From work to play, all skin tones, from Soft to Rich, will delight in this casual-smart ensemble. Fuller figures will benefit from a loser fitting top. On-trend gladiator heels and a tote bag in this beautiful turquoise hue will complete this gorgeous outfit. COPY CREDIT: Chata Romano Image Consultant, Mirella Pearson IMAGE CREDIT: Stylish Eve

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 🙂
