Effortless Dressing 101
Posted by Jintao Du on
As the age-old saying goes, less is more.
If there’s anything we’re in love with now, it’s effortless dressing (totally not because we don’t have to try too hard). The best thing about this type of aesthetic is that you look like you put hours of thought into your ‘fit when in actual fact, it takes a mere matter of seconds to build.
The secret? You need a few staple pieces you can mix, match and transform whenever you need. Need some ideas? We’ve put together some of our favourite pieces that we’re wearing this season when it comes to looking effortlessly put together.
From Desk to Dinner
So you’ve made plans to grab some Japanese and cocktails at a fancy restaurant with your girlfriends after work. You’ll need something that will seamlessly transition into the evening, and there’s nothing better than a matching set.
Get coordinating with a sleek plisse set. Wide leg pants and a button-up are staples that you’ll use time and time again. It’s also crazy easy when it comes to dressing them up. Pop on some strappy heels and statement earrings to instantly elevate your look.
Relax Mode: On
So you’re having a Netflix and chill kind of day, or you quickly need to head out and run some errands. Whatever you’re up to, you want to be comfy but still stylish.
Time to whip out the bike shorts ladies. Pair a neutral shade with an oversized sweatshirt and some fresh sneakers. Boom! An instant preppy, Princess Diana inspired look that’s sporty and fun.
Roped into going out with the girls when you had intended for a night in? We’ve been there. Lucky for you, you’ve invested in some effortless staples you can quickly throw on.
When you get that text at 6 PM saying to be ready for pres and a wild night out by 8, you need to work quickly. Queue… the leather skirt. The wardrobe hero that never fails us. Pop on your mini piece with a sleek crop and grab your strappy heels. Go wild with your accessories, slick the hair back and ta-da, you’re looking hot AF!
The key to looking sleek and sophisticated? A pair of tailored trousers. We’re loving everything linen right now! Pop them on with a puff sleeve crop and heels for a super chic and feminine look. Finish your ensemble with heels for a fancier occasion or sneakers to keep it casual.
Spontaneous little date pop up? A little black dress will always have your back. Sleek, sophisticated and stylish, style it with some strappy black heels and a mini bag to finish a refined look. Wear a statement lip colour and minimal gold jewellery to elevate the ‘fit to the next level (second guaranteed).
