Ready to add some chic to your next outfit?! Let’s get styling!
TUCK IN YOUR SHIRT
Tucking in your shirt is the easiest way to look instantly more chic! This automatically makes your outfit appear more streamlined and only takes seconds to do! Yes, it’s really that simple. You may be asking yourself, well this is a great tip but not every top can be tucked.For example, you don’t want to tuck a large, chuncky knit sweater into your jeans because 1) You probably won’t be able to zip your pant up (so not chic!) and 2) chunky knits are not meant to be styled that way! Or, a crop top probably isn’t going to work either;). So what are the guidelines to ensuring this tip works every time?!
Tucking in your top is applicable to almost all tops to include button downs, blouses, and basic tees. The list could get quite extensive but I tried to sum up what I call the “big three”.
WEAR BLACK AND WHITE
This is likely the most obvious way to add some chic to your look. Wearing black and white is timeless, classic, and black is a very slimming color! This is a win/win for all you ladies out there looking for ways to elevate your style in a few seconds! Wearing black and white is also a color combination that you can also wear to any occasion. Try thinking of a situation where black and white colors aren’t acceptable (see, I told you it can be worn anywhere!).
If wearing black and white isn’t your thing and you’re more of a bright colored kinda girl don’t worry- I’ve got you covered. If you love colors and want to add a little chicness to any look mixing patterns is an AMAZING way to accomplish this! concept is too confusing, I did a post about pattern mixing for beginners here!
BONUS STYLE TIP: If you just aren’t into mixing patterns, color blocking is another great way to add some chic to your look like I did in today’s outfit! I recently did a post about color blocking for beginners you can read by clicking here!
