A SPRING IN YOUR STEP

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: For those of you where winter is not quite over and spring hasn’t quite begun a layered ensemble is the perfect outfit option. Co-ordinate your ever faithful red leather jacket with a strappy white camisole and comfy skinny jeans. Keep a matching scarf handy to stylishly fend off the late afternoon / early evening nip in the air. COPY CREDIT: Chata Romano Image Consultant, Marlise du Plessis IMAGE CREDIT: Stylish Eve

THE HEIGHT OF ELEGANCE

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: Exchange a traditional black pencil skirt with a fashionable animal printed skirt. A shaped jacket is slimming and will hide fuller, wider hips. Opt for winter white or ivory if you have a Soft skin tone; white can be very stark. Remove the belt if you have a rounded to full tummy. Boots for cooler days, courts for warmer days.

ORDINARY TO EXTRAORDINARY

CHATA’S DAILY TIP:  An ordinary outfit can change into an extraordinary outfit by adding beautiful accessories in any colour. Today we have used red – you can use green, pink, orange, royal blue …. any warm or cool colour works! Opt for a darker grey if you have a Deep or Rich skin tone. The rouging over the tummy area conceals a rounded tummy perfectly. COPY CREDIT: Chata Romano Image Consultant, Erika Swanepoel IMAGE CREDIT: Pinterest

UNDERSTATED GLAMOUR

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: A black shift dress is the star of a basic wardrobe! It can be dressed up or down, with minimum effort. Co-ordinate with neutral shades, like this example, for a classy, understated look. Step it up a notch with a stunning pair of animal printed heels, then complete with gold accessories for a head-turning statement.

GREEN WITH ENVY!

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: A classic ensemble with a fashionable twist! Wear your denims with a white top and green shaped cardi for a fashionable end-result.  The green cardi can also be replaced with any other cool or warm colour, e.g.: orange, red, turquoise, etc. The navy accessories blend perfectly with this causal smart outfit.

CLASSIC APPEAL

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: It seems that animal prints are here to stay! Animal printed accessories, like these belt and shoes, instantly create a WOW factor! Co-ordinate with a neutral suit (or soft cardigan) and a dash of colour, like this beautiful blue shirt. COPY CREDIT: Chata Romano Image Consultant, Marlise Du Plessis IMAGE CREDIT: Pinterest

FROM BASIC TO BRIGHT

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: With cooler days fast approaching add a pop of colour to basic outfits for some va-va-voom. A red cardigan, with select accessories in red, makes the outfit come alive. A sexy tapered skirt (that fits well) will instantly take a traditional cardigan to a stylishly different level. COPY CREDIT: Chata Romano Image Consultant, Wendy Hind IMAGE CREDIT: Pinterest

POWER DRESSING!

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: Make a seriously stylish statement at the office! The overall silhouette of a shift dress is very flattering, especially when co-ordinated with a longer jacket at the same length. Accessorize with head-turning heels and a matching handbag. COPY CREDIT: Chata Romano Image Consultant, Willene Sieberhagen IMAGE CREDIT: Pinterest

BACK TO BASICS!

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: This is a perfect example of how two stunning basic colours (stone and black) mix perfectly. The stone cardi-jacket is at the right length to hide wider hips or a fuller bottom. Replace the wider pants for tapered pants if you have a fuller figure. Step into animal printed pumps and pair with an animal printed scarf to pull the look together. COPY CREDIT: Chata Romano Image Consultant, Karyn Lindes IMAGE CREDIT: Pinterest

A POP OF COLOUR

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: Brighten classic black with a pop of colour – a gorgeous burnt orange gets our vote this week! If you have a Soft skin tone (fair) or a Medium skin tone (golden) opt for a brighter tone of orange. This burnt orange is fantastic for a Deep or Rich (light dark to dark skin tones).

WEEKEND WEAR!

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: Swop your blue jeans for a pair of distressed charcoal jeans, and dress up with an elegant jacket and handbag for a classy Casual Friday feel.  Repeat the orange and charcoal in a fabulously feminine scarf to pull the look together.

      Thank you for your post Nerine – there are some divine outfits aren’t there?!
