ALL-WHITE INSPIRATION

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: The ever popular head-to-toe white trend continues and inspires this summer season. It’s so easy to transform your casual day look to a glamorous evening look – simply swop your casual ankle boots, or flat sandals, with a statement necklace and sexy high heels.

TRENDY IN SUMMER STYLE

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: High-waisted pants are one of the super-hot-trendy styles this summer season. Avoid if you are very short-waisted, opt for regular or hipster styles instead. High-waisted styles look fabulous when defined with a belt. The heel height is optional – either comfy flats or gorgeous heels, both work well.

A RAY OF SUNSHINE

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: This casual ensemble is sure to put a spring in your step, whether it’s collecting the kids from school or meeting your girlfriends for lunch! Bright pops of colour found in the textured tote and striped top add interest to an otherwise plain white vest, jeans and sneakers outfit. Complete this look with on-trend hooped earrings.

STATEMENT GOLD

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: The all-time classic and absolute must-have black dress is stunningly updated with statement studs. To this fabulous ensemble add bold gold accessories in the form of statement stilettos and a clutch bag. If you have a fuller figure then wear a looser top with tapered pants to create a similar effect. COPY CREDIT: Chata Romano Image Consultant, Marié-Louise de Jager IMAGE CREDIT: Stylish Eve

FASHION FORWARD

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: Tangerine is one of this season’s must-have colours and instantly adds a modern edge to basic colours. For a smarter look replace shorts with ¾ pants and flat shoes with colourful high-heeled wedge shoes in your favourite summer print, be it florals, stripes, animal prints or an abstract design.

DELICIOUS DENIM

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: We continue our love affair with versatile denim, this time dressed up for after-work cocktails with another summer must-have; nudes. A nude draped top will enhance a smaller bust and skim softly over fuller hips. Complete this gorgeous look with nude matching high-heels and a bling clutch bag, adding patent black accessories for a sophisticated, elegant look.

GORGEOUS GREEN

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: This stunning outfit is strong yet feminine. The combination of green and tan is very striking. The bow is feminine, adding softness. A high neckline is perfect if you have a long neck; if you have a short neck then opt for a lower neckline instead.

OFF-THE-SHOULDER GLAMOUR

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: An off-the-shoulder dress is so glamorous, so perfect. Shoulders are a naturally slim part of the body so this trend will therefore suit most body shapes. We suggest you avoid this trend if you have wide shoulders, an off-the-shoulder style will make your shoulders look even wider.

SUMMER STYLE

CHATA‘S DAILY TIP: If you are looking for a perfect casual-smart outfit then this is it! The combination of wearing a smart top with casual jeans and stylish accessories is always a must-do on our style list. A draped top perfectly complements a small or full bust. Swop skinny jeans for regular jeans if you have a fuller figure. COPY CREDIT: Chata Romano Image Consultant, Marida Pretorius IMAGE CREDIT: Stylish Eve

A POP OF PEACH

CHATA‘S DAILY TIP: Brighten a casual-smart basic stone bottom (chino or jeans) with a pop of peach and be perfectly ready for a casual day at the office or lunching with friends over the weekend. A blouson top cleverly camouflages a fuller tummy. Complete the look with jewellery in all shades of this wonderful colour combination.

TAN-FABULOUS

CHATA‘S DAILY TIP: Tan is a super neutral that works well throughout the year. Take a tan leather skirt into summer by adding on-trend gladiator sandals and a super-sexy white top. A high round neckline will add fullness to a small bust; if you have a fuller bust then opt for a lower neckline instead.

STYLISHLY TAILORED

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: Navy is a gorgeous basic colour! A classic navy pencil skirt is instantly updated with this seasons must have floral printed top. To complete this look use the colours of the print in your solid colour choice, like this pretty peach tailored jacket. Complete with gold accessories for stylishly tailored end result.

      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 🙂
