Looking chic, effortless, and unique with your fashion style can be challenging to some women as style and comfort don’t always meet. The mind behind the Kyklamasha blog, Maria Kolosova is a style blogger and fashion journalist known for her effortlessly chic street style. According to her, an outfit must show your personality and style, instead of the brands or trends you’re wearing. Wondering how to make an effortlessly chic look possible? Keep on reading to scoop some of Maria’s tricks.
- Select the most stylish and comfortable footwear.
Looking chic doesn’t mean sneakers are out of the equation and looking effortless doesn’t imply throwing away your heels. Like Maria, you may go for the most stylish and comfortable footwear. Sneakers are now in more stylish and elegant designs featuring classic shades, streamlined styles, and even metallic gold trims making them more wearable for chic occasions. Maybe it’s time to trade your sky-high stiletto pumps with platform loafers, chunky boots, block heeled sandals, or even ballet flats if you’re not too concerned on your height. Stick to the neutral shades of black and white, as well as metallic silver and gold, which look elegant and chic compared to any other shades.
- Stick to a sleek pair of denim jeans or leather trousers.
Denim may be a casual fabric, but you can still make them look chic without taking away the effortless vibe in it. Like Maria, go for sleek styles of jeans or leather trousers without any rips, tears, patches, or acid-washed style. This way, they can still be dressed up with chic tops like a crisp button down shirt, form-fitting sweater, chic blazer, structured coat, and feminine blouse. Though skinny fit of jeans is the dressiest, you may think of boot cut or flared jeans, but skip those boyfriend and oversized styles that don’t look polished and chic enough.
- Go for relaxed but structured silhouettes.
Relaxed doesn’t mean baggy and structured doesn’t mean high-maintenance. When opting for fashion pieces, go for fabrics that are low-maintenance like fur, denim, silk, leather, wool, velvet and such that don’t require ironing. Like Maria, you may think of wearing your fur coat to dress up your pair of jeans and combat boots. Going for a collared shirt, without tucking it in your skinny jeans, and structured coat look effortlessly chic without going overboard.
- Choose effortless prints in classic hues.
Classic stripes and polka dots look effortlessly chic over retro floral, abstract prints, geometric patterns, and even houndstooth patterns that look so elaborate and intricate. Striped tops are versatile enough to wear with skirts, overalls, denim jeans, leather trousers, chic shorts, dress pants, miniskirts and such that can take you from casual to more formal settings. To add some flair of elegance to your effortless look, then top your casual outfit with a leopard print coat that looks chic without taking away the effortless vibe in you.
- Opt for a stylish bag and scarf to spice up your effortless outfit.
To make your effortless outfit a bit chic, then, go for a printed scarf and a stylish bag that can dress them up. Like Maria, you may think of wearing a polka dots scarf with your casual chic outfit of jeans and trench coat or simply wrapping a checkered shawl with your urban outfit. This way, you’ll have the pleasure with your comfortable look without compromising a good sense of style in your outfits.
