Hi, I'm Tina Gill with Worthwhile Style, and today I'm going to give you a few tips on how to dress chic. First and foremost, if you want to look chic, your clothes have to fit. So you really want things to fit you perfectly in the shoulders, all the way down the side, all the way to your hips and all the way to the floor. An easy way to achieve a chic look is to do all one color, monochromatic dressing. It's easy to fit into your wardrobe and then at a later date you can mix and match these pieces and add a pop of color if you wish. But to get that overall look of chicness what you want to do is have things that have pretty little detail to them. So if you're going with a black suit, have something that's very simple through here, this is just a three button suit. It has a notch lapel here and a simple black trouser. To add a little texture and a little bit of interest to this, I paired it with a lace shirt and the reason I did that is because when you go all monochromatic, you want to add a bit of texture and interest and detail to your outfit but overall, this is a very chic look. You can do this with any color way that you want. Another look that keeps it very clean is doing like a vest with a pair of trousers that match. Again very simple lines, very simple detailing. You could wear a gray, you know, cashmere sweater underneath this, a white button down shirt, very clean. A lot of people associate chic with less detail. So that's the goal when you're dressing like that or if you're doing monochromatic. This would work pretty much year round, in the Summertime, it would be great to have a white linen suit, white up top, white on bottom and a white blouse underneath. In the Fall you'd go with more of the brown tones and in the Winter you could do the blacks. So for dressing chic add a little bit of texture and interest to your outfit so it doesn't look too plain but fit is most important regardless what you're dressing but if you're trying to get that chic look fit is so important. So make sure it fits every part of your body and then remember to add a little bit of texture if you're going monochromatic. I'm Tina Gill with Worthwhile Style. Thanks for watching.
