How to: 3 key pieces to look chic
Elegance. If one looks for elegance at the dictionary will find something like this “the quality of being graceful and stylish in appearance or manner”. And, for me this is exactly what elegance is about. Beyond beautiful and good clothes, elegance means one is educated, polished and respectful. What, by the way, are values i truly appreciate in someone and that i try to cultivate myself.
So that, i always try to dress in an elegant way (even when i dress casual). For me is not just about the clothes but also, and most important, about that je ne sais quoi that makes us love sophisticated things.About the message we’re sending, you know?
This lead us to a tricky point: how do we make an outfit look elegant? Well, i would say there isn’t just one right answer.
This lead us to a tricky point: how do we make an outfit look elegant? Well, i would say there isn’t just one right answer. But, there are 3 key pieces that will make us achieve it in an easy way.
The silk white shirt: Here it is an essential both if you want to look elegant and dressed in an expensive way. Truth is it’s an investment, but we’ll be able to wear it a lot of times in different ways. Pair it with shorts for a casual chic outfit, with black trousers for work or with a skirt for a night out with the girls. Yes, one will always nail the outfit in a silk white shirt. If you haven’t one yet you truly should buy it.
Black trousers: High waist black trousers is another essential. I mean, there’s nothing more versatile than a pair of black trousers. The most important is that it’s made from a good fabric and fits you perfectly.
Leather shoes: Okay, we all agree a beautiful pair of shoes make the look. So, invest in a pair you actually can walk in. Also take care with the quality. I suggest you to buy leather ones, due to the comfort and to the durability. It’s an investment piece that will pay off.
Instead of buying beautiful trendy pieces and suffering the “so last season” drama because you have nothing trendy to wear (i’ll make a post about it soon), try to invest in key pieces that you’ll be able to wear with a lot of things you already have. Timeless outfits are the best.
Off course, there are a lot more pieces that would make an outfit look elegant such as a pretty swiss watch or a designer bag. However, these 3 above are key pieces that will make any outfit stand out. So, i would highly suggest you to consider investing your money in them.
