5 Tips for Instant Chic

Let me start by saying that yes, chic is easily my favorite fashion term. Probably because it evokes so many visuals for me I think of sleek, stylish, city fashion rolled into a fabulous ball of hair and makeup! But as much as I love the word I also try to remain very conscious of implementing final chic touches to my outfit. So I am here to help out my fellow fashion lovers with 5 Tips for Instant Chic as well as a new outfit post!

1. Add An Awesome Blazer. Adding a blazer to any top be it a camisole, band tee, or cute top brings instant chic elements! The blazer adds structure that can then be played with by rolling or folding the sleeves.

3. It's All About The Shoes We all know how the right pair of shoes can MAKE or BREAK an outfit. The same is true here. If your outfit is very detailed maybe stick to a simpler shoe style. Whereas if your outfit is simple feel free to break out the red snack print & suede heels in other words go big! Learn the balance of shoe choices. 4. Stick to Neutral Colors Chic tends to lend favor to neutral tones think of the camel, gray, black, white color families. Sticking to these colors for your outfits bring instant chic without much thought.
