CASUAL & WELL-GROOMED

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: This outfit perfectly illustrates how to look casual but well-groomed at the same time. Natural shades with denim are so stylish and chic! Keep your accessories neutral and add an element of interest such as animal printed ballerina pumps. Keep a lightweight neutral scarf handy for breezy evenings.

STUNNING CASUAL-FRIDAY!

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: Casual-Friday never looked so good! Take your basic jeans, add a beautiful feminine top in an on-trend colour like Masala (Pantone’s colour of the year) and complete with a flattering shaped blazer. Accessorize with co-ordinating comfy shoes, or swop for a pair of stunning heels if that’s your style. COPY CREDIT: Chata Romano Image Consultant, Willene Sieberhagen IMAGE CREDIT: Pinterest

BOHEMIAN CHIC!

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: A looser, softer top is a great style for concealing figure concerns such as a full bust, full upper arms, rounded tummy or wider hips. Co-ordinate with skinny jeans; the length of the top is covering all concerns. Accessories should blend and tone for an overall stylish image. COPY CREDIT: Chata Romano Image Consultant, Wendy Hind IMAGE CREDIT: Pinterest

OH SO ROYAL

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: Stone is one of our favourite neutral colours because it suits all skin tones. It is also an extremely versatile colour co-ordinating with every single warm or cool colour, like this gorgeous royal blue. A jacket with a wide collar is the best style choice if you have a small bust. A pair of to-die-for heels adds the finishing touch.

URBAN CHIC

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: Layering a structured jacket over a soft fluid top creates a great unstructured look. Scarves are an excellent way to introduce colour, and interest, to an outfit. Perfectly toned accessories result in a relaxed smart-casual look. COPY CREDIT: Chata Romano Image Consultant, Erika Swanepoel IMAGE CREDIT: Pinterest

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.

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

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 🙂
