Chata's Daily Tips

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.

CASUAL, WITH A TWIST

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: Casual with a dollop of smart! We love the colour combinations of this gorgeous ensemble. Opt for high heel boots for casual chic or flat boots for total comfort. The printed on-trend scarf is the fashionable cherry on top. COPY CREDIT: Chata Romano Image Consultant, Marlise du Plessis IMAGE CREDIT: Pinterest

THE UPDATED LBD

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: One solid colour, like black, from top to bottom, can have a slimming effect but an all-black outfit can also be very heavy. Why not add a beautiful black and white jacket to give your outfit a striking ‘lift’. Avoid big, wide collars if you have a short neck or wide shoulders, opt for a regular collar instead.

SIMPLE SEPARATES

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: To flatter wider hips avoid jackets, or tops, that end at the widest part of your hips – the best length for women with a fuller figure is the half-way point from your shoulder to the floor, creating a perfect proportion. Add a pop of colour, such as this divine green, to basic colours such as navy and white. COPY CREDIT: Chata Romano Image Consultant, Karyn Lindes IMAGE CREDIT: Pinterest

BREEZY EVENING PERFECTION

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: A fitted black button-down shirt can easily double-up as a lightweight jacket, perfect for breezy autumn evenings. Leave it open to reveal a gorgeous vest or camisole in dramatic tones of neutrals. Pair with dark jeans and fashionable heels for an edgy look. COPY CREDIT: Chata Romano Image Consultant, Marlise du Plessis IMAGE CREDIT: Pinterest

MARVELLOUS MARSALA

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: Marsala continues its magical reign for this season leading colour. A shift dress, with a matching longer length jacket (the same length as the dress) is so very elegant. Accessorize with a smaller, ladylike bag and stylish patent heels for head-turning glamour. COPY CREDIT:  Chata Romano Image Consultant, Erika Swanepoel IMAGE CREDIT: Pinterest

HOT PINK IS HOT!

CHATA’S DAILY TIP: Spruce up your classic jeans and basic T-shirt with accessories in hot pink and on-trend prints. If your skin tone gets hot very quickly or you blush easily avoid bright pinks; opt for softer shades of pink. A denim jacket is a wardrobe staple, perfect for not-yet-warm spring evenings – ensure the shade differs from your jeans to keep the look trendy.

      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 🙂
