Are you in a fashion rut? Nowadays, it’s common to put our families and jobs before our appearance. However, looking your best shouldn’t be the last thing on your priorities. Not only will you feel more confident, studies show being a polished dresser could help us get ahead in the workplace!
Each individual has their own style and there are many different trends to follow. One of them is ‘minimalist chic’. One of easiest styles to master, it’s always in fashion and has an elegant Parisian feel. A minimalist look presents clean lines, solid colours and an overall ‘fresh’ appearance. Basics are the foundation of this style – think a plain white tee with a pair of ripped blue jeans and pointed nude stilettos. You’d be surprised how much you can dress up or dress down this chic look.
Here are the absolute essentials you should have in your closet for this easy, go-to summer look.
Nothing ads instant chic like a well-fitting blazer. In summer, throw it over a pair of denim shorts and a white tank to add a hint of elegance. Wear the blazer over t-shirts, summer dresses or jeans to complete your look. Start off with neutral colours like white, black or nude – they go with almost everything!
2) Plain tees
A staple item for a chic wardrobe. Plain t-shirts go great with jeans, shorts or tucked loosely into a pencil skirt. I love the relaxed v-neck styles - these do wonders to accentuate your chest and look very feminine! Find the cut that best suits you and stock up on a bunch of basic colours.
3) Simple stilettos
Sure, glitter and florals are all the rage this time of year. However, nothing beats a simple, nude pump! This style covers you for every season and nearly every occasion. Whether you’re going to work, out to drinks or out on a date – basic stilettos never go out of style.
The one great thing about a ‘minimalist’ look is that it’s so easy to dress up or down, with the right accessories. Use solid colours as your outfit building block and decorate it with some bling! It’s easy to become over-excited over shiny things so stick to accentuating one area at a time. Remember, if you’re wearing statement earrings put down the chunky necklace! Instead, opt for a gorgeous statement watch and rings to top off your outfit.

While winter is a delight to many, this season also sends many people into desperate measures in order to stop their skin from peeling and becoming just as rough as sandpaper. It’s easy to stay warm, but your skin doesn’t need just warmth, it needs moisture. If you are one of these people (or you know someone dealing with this emergency), here are some effective tips for keeping your skin nourished and supple during Australia’s severely drying winter.
With how advanced technology is nowadays, there are many appliances at home we can now rely on to provide beauty services we usually have to go out for. The winter cold is lingering, and it’s easy to lose motivation to head out and drive to places such as salons and facialists. Or maybe no matter the time of year, you just can’t be bothered driving out anyway.
We all want to care for our skin and maintain our youth. However, the natural aging process is continuous and unstoppable. That’s why it’s important to take preventative measures now and to slow down the natural aging process.
