Do you notice certain women looking effortlessly cool? They look CLASSY, but not too formal…almost as if they haven’t even tried!!
As a professional stylist, I can tell you it’s actually much easier than you might think to create this ‘feel’ to your look!
AND best of all, I’m going to share my 5 TOP style secrets to help YOU create that effortlessly cool vibe too. These are ALL tips that you can easily make to your existing wardrobe…
The easiest way to revive a favourite old pair of jeans is just to TURN them up at the bottom! Seriously, it really is that simple, AND works on a number of different styles!
By just turning up your jeans, you’ll create that lived in, casual look that says ‘effortless…but without trying’.
PLUS it shows off your footwear – and a FLASH of the ankle, which is always a super sexy thing!
Who knew the way you tuck your shirt in CAN change your whole outfit? It’s really quite simple; the main culprits are; the front tuck, back tuck or NO tuck at all!
For creating an effortlessly chic look, my favourite is the front tuck! This is the PERFECT choice for any occasion, and will define your waist (without drawing attention to it!) in a lived in casual yet stylish way.
So start TUCKING away!
This is one of my ALL time favourite style tips – I do this one all the time with so many of my tops!
If you want that casual and effortless look, then you will LOVE this simple trick…ALL you’ve got to do is just rouche up your sleeves!! Voila – you’re look just got a whole lot cooler!
By folding or rouching up your sleeves, you can transform a formal outfit into something much more casual yet still smart.
I’ll be the first to admit it…I LOVE the thought of wearing heels, but in reality, they hurt my feet! Luckily, flats are having a fashion moment – especially the pointy kind! In fact, the ‘pointy flat’ is fast becoming the new super chic alternative to heels!
So if you’ve loved your ballet pumps, you should try the new pointed flat – not only does it streamline your feet, it enhances the shape of your legs too – WITHOUT a heel in sight!
Nothing – I repeat NOTHING, makes me feel better than a burst of colour on my lips! Adding a pop of colour to your lips will instantly transform a dull outfit to another level!
Bright lipsticks are my holy grail when it comes to quick fixes (especially if you’re in a hurry!).
Sometimes, wearing a bright POP of lipstick with minimal eye makeup is the perfect, classy look. Team this with a casual ensemble, and you’ll carry off that cool, understated vibe…think Parisian chic!
Coco Chanel said it best: “If you’re sad, add more lipstick and attack!”
So have FUN changing up your style with a few clever little tweaks …and without buying a whole new wardrobe!
