We cannot help but lust after some modern day muses, who’s looks, captured by street style photographers and often seen through the odd Instagram filter, we want to emulate or at least make us want to decode the formula that makes them appear so put- together yet laid-back. Here, we share some essential styling commandments of dressing that will help you achieve the effortlessly chic aesthetic of your favorite style icons
Commandment #1: Don’t Try too Hard
At the core of looking chic, lies a woman’s knowledge of self which is the source of all confidence. Knowing what works for you, not only feels endlessly liberating, but makes for your signature style! Construct a capsule wardrobe that feels natural to you, whether you’re more of a monochromatic fanatic or love bright, bold prints, choose pieces to compliment your wardrobe and that you can play with creatively!
Commandment #2: Choose Your Eye-Catching Pieces Carefully!
Every stylish lady knows that a lot relies on the accessories to add chic factor to her look. Brightly colored accessories are fantastic for spicing up your more pared-back pieces, opt for interesting shapes and texture inserts for evening wear and invest in a truly great timeless handbag that will be your companion from boardroom to dinner and will seamlessly integrate within the rest of your wardrobe.
Commandment #3: Declutter
A well-organized wardrobe is the key looking chic in no time when getting dressed for any occasion (especially when running late in the morning!) so act as the curator of your own closet by implementing a decluttering plan! Re-Organize, identify your wardrobe pieces, the ones that bring you joy and the ones you haven’t touched since college and keep the essentials! Review the main colors and shapes you own and draw a list to fill in the gaps accordingly if necessary. You sure will enjoy not being overwhelmed by the sight of so many different items and will make it easier to navigate the depths of stylish dressing!
