Having an impeccable style and being chic on all occasions is not an impossible task: just follow a few simple steps. To make your task easier, we have prepared a sort of vademecum with 10 basic rules that will help you in your approach to the perfect look.
1) MIX AT THE MAXIMUM THREE COLORS ONCE
It seems a banality, but combining more than 3 colors at a time makes the end result too chaotic and the Harlequin effect is always around the corner.
2) PREDILIGE BASIC COLORS
Speaking of colors, let yourself be tempted by the fashion color of the season, yes, but without exaggerating: bandits in short improbable total look with bright colors. You prefer classic shades like black, powder pink, beige, gray, burgundy, oil, which hardly get tired.
3) KEEP ACCOUNT OF YOUR OWN AGE
Every age has its own style and must be respected: it is not (only) a matter of physical, but also and above all of good taste.
4) ASSEMBLING YOUR OWN SILHOUETTE
Knowing and accepting one’s own body also means enhancing its strengths and camouflaging its defects. Whether you are tall or short, curvy or skinny, there are garments made just for you: just find the right model and do not do without it anymore.
5) THE GUARDAROBA CAPISALDI
In this regard, there are some garments universally recognized as a must-have for women’s wardrobes, which do not undergo fashions and act as passe-partout on a thousand occasions. A tailored coat, a little black dress, a beautiful silk shirt, elegant trousers and a pair of clean-cut leather pumps, for example, are essential pieces to be chic.
6) PREDILIGE QUALITY FABRICS
The temptation of low-cost clothing chains is always strong, but the more we go on with age, the more important the quality of garments and accessories becomes: fabrics like virgin wool, cashmere, silk are hard to wear and guarantee a durability and an extra gear in the look.
7) CARE THE LINGERIES
Even the intimate wants its part. And to make us feel more beautiful and confident about ourselves, it plays a really fundamental role. Nothing exaggerated or too sexy, simplicity always triumphs: the important thing is that it is cured and possibly coordinated.
8) THINK ABOUT THE OPPORTUNITY
Another mistake that is often committed is to not take into account the occasion for which you dress. If you have to attend a special event or ceremony, you can not show up in overalls or with a casual look, right? Here, it is exactly the same on the contrary: to bring out the dog or a tea with friends, heel 12 and mini dress will make you look, however sexy, absolutely out of place.
9) LESS IS MORE
“Before leaving, look in the mirror and take something away”, a word from Coco Chanel. A classy look does not need too many frills, better to remove some accessories that add.
10) DO NOT FOLLOW THE FASHION PEDISSEQUELY
Finally, always remember that following the seasonal trends is fine only if done with measure and common sense. The ideal is to mix fashion with your own style, finding the right compromise and without ever forgetting your tastes and preferences: your personality must always prevail over the catwalk trends, not the other way around.
