This Wednesday I decided to keep it a casual. I know most of you think that my casual outfit is still a kind of chic. I added red lips, to add some drama to this look. In this post, I like to talk about the power of accessories e.g. as mentioned before the red lips.
Does it fit me?
To create a fashionable look, you need clothes that suit you very well. Trousers need to be long enough but not too long. The waist should fit you just perfectly. If you have trousers that are a bit too big, bring them to the tailor and get them customized to your needs. Trousers that are too small – please donate them.
Apparently, this applies to every garment you own. There is nothing worse than clothes that misfit.
Casual dress code
Casual does not mean comfortable nor sloppy. For me, it means to dress less formal or business attire.
Number one accessory is still a good pair of sunglasses. You can hide behind the shades when you don’t wear makeup or create a hairstyle by putting them in your hair.
The second game-changer is a Chanel brooch. Put a Chanel brooch on an average wool jumper or jacket, and the brooch will transfer the garment into an expensive looking piece of clothing. See my post about Chanel brooches here.
Good shoes. They do not have to be a designer brand. Over the years I have learned that shoes should fit properly. Never buy shoes that are too big or too small. You will never wear them or at least have no fun or comfort when wearing them. Be aware that the shoes are clean and shiny. Ladies, when wearing high heels, please inspect the hell for damages before you leave the house. A broken heel can ruin the whole outfit.
A good leather handbag has so much impact on the appearance of an outfit. I always save up to buy my dream purse and love every piece in my collection.
Red lips I have discovered lately. I always thought that I couldn’t wear red until I found a red that suits me so perfect. Inspired by the fresh look, you can create with a minimum of makeup and red lips I went on a hunt for a red lipstick. The impact is massive.
Details like this little twilly on my handbag make such a huge difference.

Sunglasses: Tods Model TO 08 col.28F 62 10 130
Lipstick: YSL Yves Saint Laurent Glossy Stain 46 Rouge Fusion
