You see her and immediately, you know. She is the master of chic. Her outfit is at once effortlessly thrown together and exquisitely paired. Its the effortlessness level of “I’ve picked this this from the top of the pile on my chair- and I’m still most stylish woman in the room.”
Her secret? Mixing high and low. It’s an old styling trick and it works every time. Piling on designer labels can be lethal to chic but put cleverly together high street and designer pieces and you’ll get that effortless yet sophisticated look.
The key piece in this look is a good quality coat. It pulls the whole outfit together and elevates even the simples jeans and t-shirt combo.
One of my favourite pairing is dark denim shirt, my beat up favourite denim trousers and a sleek camel coat. The contrast between battered denim and a timeless coat makes for an effortless combination. I love gold accessories with this look. Camel + dennim + gold makes for an expensive looking and sophisticated pairing.
