Looking cool, calm, and collected has never been so easy. The effortless chic is a classic look that will never tire. Perfecting the art of simplicity can be challenging in order to maintain a clean-cut appearance. You must be selective with your choices as to not stray away from your essential clothing staples. When accessories are used in a limited and subtle manner, the outcome of this process is a look that makes you appear effortlessly glamorous.
I stumbled upon a perfect example of this craft while I was venturing around Mayfair. A hot spot for Fashionistas, this neighborhood oozes a posh vibe on every corner. The streets are scattered with cafes, art galleries, and famous fashion houses. This week’s Fashionista was spotted leaving a café when I caught site of her crisp look. Sticking to subdued solids, she wears a fitted pair of dark washed skinny jeans. They are tucked into her suede and leather booties that have a functional heel that provides both comfort and height all day long. She wears a fitted button up oxford shirt in classic white that sports the subtle trend of metal on the collar ends. To keep warm she pairs it with a traditional black military coat. Her accessories are kept modest by wearing only a single necklace.
Her overall look appears clean and tasteful. Since there is no piece that demands your attention, her outfit is perfect for swapping one item for another to transition for any occasion. From day to night, by changing her coat for a blazer or jeans for a skirt, she’s ready for a night on the town. This is easy for anyone to accomplish. Pair a simple blouse or button up with your favorite jeans, or wear a flowy skirt with a modest cardigan. By sticking to solids and simple cuts, you can achieve a classic and natural look that will make you feel fab all day long.
