Looking great is easier than it seems. Looking effortless chic is the clue of looking good.

A couple of ideas before giving tips. First of all to look eforlessly chic needs organization and this begins in your closet. Yes we hae to declutter our closet. Things that do not fit, things we have not worn in ages, clothes that are broken … definitely should go away. You can donate them if they are in good condition or you can organize a closet sale.

Then you will have key pieces to play with. Invest some time in reviewing what is left. If there is something unttractive or out of fashion, put it away.  

So now you have your most stylish pieces and it is time to see if they are versatile and study how to combine and pair them. Looking effortlessly chic means being skifull in the art of mixing and matching.

I imagine that with this you have a wardrobe full of pieces and clothes you love and that fit well – if not please have them tailored. With some clear space you can organize your closet using the rule of colors or the rule of same type of pieces.

And how some tricks and tips to look effortless chic.

  • First look for classics.  People think that classics can be boring but, in my opinion, they are timeless and investing in these pieces helps a lot when mixing and matching easily as they can be dressed up or down. What pieces should I invest in? Well, a leather jacket, a black blazer, a good woolen coat for winter, a good-fitting pair of jeans, some buttondown shirts are key pieces in efforless chic… And, of course, a little white, red, blue or black dress.

  • Be a mix and match expert. How to do so? Well, a basic outfit well paired with fine jewellery, a colorful scarf or belt and a classic bag or shoes will make your look pop. Those who are more risky can replace the scarf for a hat or a pair of high-knee boots.

  • Instead of matching everything try to mix by not matching handbag with shoes or using coordinates such as suits or top and skirt or pant sets in the same outfit. Not everything has to match even me, myself and I loves monochrome looks. But this sometimes seems to be a bit overdone!! Other idea is to wear three different colors in the same outfit.IMG_6386

  • Adding casual pieces gives an efforless touch to every outfit. For example, you can roll your sleeves or do not tuck tops in your back.  Steaming pleats instead of ironing them is another clue. This is very simple but gives a casual feel ideal for the style you are looking for.

  • Wear natural fabrics which are more breathable and airy. They also have a very refined touch to your outfits and their texture plays well with more stiff fabrics.

  • Simple makeup and hair style adds care to your appearance and obviously looks effortless chic. In a day o day basis do not overdo your make up and be simple with your hair style as a way to be elegant without pretendint to be so smart.
