The colder weather is upon us and while most of us reach for the neutral tones including shades of beige, camel and and creams, opting for simple black, white and grey tones is perfect for a chic and modern look. Pairing classic colours such as grey and black and darker tones with lighter ones is the easiest and least complicated way to achieve an effortless put-together look. The best part about wearing two-tones is that you don’t have to worry about whether your statement handbag or bright lipstick will clash with your outfit. Head to your nearest Foschini store to achieve this month’s two-tone simplicity trend.
The perfect pair of trousers accentuate your curves and flatter your figure. Trousers are a must in any working-woman’s closet – they act as the essential base to your outfit and looking good in them means feeling good. The preferred length is short and ankle-skimming, a slim leg trouser that’s sharp and fitted exudes modern charm. Whether you opt for the printed variety in a range of polka dots, pinstripes and gingham or classic monotone, they work well with white collared shirts, casual tee’s, blazers and wrap tops. Talk about versatile! Finish off the look with brogues or your favourite black strappy heels.
WORK STYLE SECRETS
It was Coco Chanel that once said, “simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance.” Looking good while maintaining that effortless edge can be difficult but here are a few key things to keep in mind before getting dressed in the morning. Less is more! In fact, the simpler the better. No need to pack on the accessories or at the last minute, add that statement belt.
Ditch the heels and opt for flats instead, whether they be loafers, brogues, Oxfords or even sneakers. You’ll survive the day; be comfortable and give your outfit a tomboy edge. Keep in mind that you don’t need to wear brightly coloured clothing that screams for attention in order to make a statement. Laid back black, grey and whites allow your inner confidence to shine through!
