This season make it right: Decoding the Smart Casual Attire

Are you still confused on what to wear on the 19th or to an upcoming corporate event? The memo says, dress smart casual......erm hmmm what is Smart Casual? So a lot of you have been asking what exactly is smart casual, how does it look like? All the pictures carry the “casual” word on the title, does this mean all of them are appropriate? Fret no more ladies, today we are decoding the smart casual look, so that you’ll be party ready for our first time outside the office holiday celebration.

Smart casual is a combination of casual and dressy, at the office, smart casual clothes are the kinds you’d wear on casual Fridays. The basic rule to achieve smart casual wear is to achieve a 60-40 balance of formal versus casual apparel and accessories. This in mind, I have put together 5 options for you this coming Monday.

Look No. 1
Smart – Blazer + Accessories + Pumps/Best flats
Casual – Basic jeans + T-shirt/ Tank Top

Look No. 2
Smart - Dressy Top + High Heels + Accessories
Casual – Leggings (Try Leather!) 

Look No. 3
Smart – Tailored Top + Accessories + High Heels
    Casual – Fun Skirt (Circle Skirt) or Dressy Flats

Look No. 4
Smart – Pumps + Accessories
                           Casual – Dress, above or just below the

Look No. 5
Smart – Office Skirt or Slacks + Pumps or High heels
Casual – Fun Blouse 

Have fun shopping ladies and stay chic!

The 50's Lady

          Hi ladies, who here love skirts? I’m not talking about the bandage skirt, they had their time already, right now I really love flirty and feminine skirt and this style does it for me!  The full circle skirts are back in style, with shapes that accentuate curves and foster femininity.  Think of Ms. Carrie Bradshaw , in Sex in the City! These skirts are so comfortable and easy to wear. .and while these skirts do have a 50’s flavor to them, it’s possible to wear one without looking frumpy.

Here’s my take, Circle skirts are feminine when worn with a lace bodysuit; Vintage when paired with a loose blouse and sky-high pumps; and geek chic with a buttonned up polo and brogues. (menswear-inspired lace up shoe)


 In addition here is Instyle’s tip on how to wear your Circle Skirts.

  •  Go with above the knee-length. Today's full skirts should fall to or slightly above your knee -- anything lower will look too retro. Also, this is the most flattering length for legs.
  • Look for minimum fullness. Avoid circle skirts with crinolines or layers underneath that make them puff out. Layers give a more costumey effect. 
  • Experiment with patterns. This season's full skirts come in many rich patterns, from polka dots to flowers to geometric prints. Choose a pattern for a modern look.
  • Stay simple on top. The sleeker the top, the more chic you'll look in a full skirt. Try a short-sleeved, close-fitting sweater, a simple cardigan worn buttoned almost all the way up, or a basic tank or shell. Avoid patterns on top, and choose a color that complements a shade in the skirt.
  • Pick the right shoes. Since full skirts are feminine and flirty, the shoes you wear with them should be, too.

This season make it right: I’m giving in to leather!

       I encourage wardrobe creativity, so this weekend, I’m welcoming a trend that is making a comeback this season. LEATHER! Yes I’ve lusted over sequins, laces and shared the love for animal print but this time I’m giving in to leather. …you might think I’m a tad bit crazy, because of the weather situation, how can we wear them?   Ladies I’m talking about faux leather leggings, (alternative to real leather, fake) they’re airy, stretchy, form fitting and a huge trend right now.  Most of us love the look and feel of tight shiny leggings - others because they're not only flattering - they're comfortable too.

And who’s to say that some pieces don’t deserve to be repeated, these faux leather leggings can be dressed up or down, semi-formal or casual, to errands, to parties, and beyond. The slick leather bottoms work well with practically everything — and if ever there is a time to invest in a pair it's now.

Need more convincing?
 Dress it up or down to events and parties

 To running errand wearing your favorite flats.

I'm giving it a stamp of approval. Are you with me?

This season make it right: Catlike eye-makeup

  Hi ladies, exciting mid-week! I can really feel the holiday spirit with all the party and event invites I have, so this means, outfit, outfit, outfit! So for the coming days ill be posting more tutorials, tips and “get-the look”, to get you thru all the holidays’ events. To kick-off , “ This season’s make it right” , I’m going to share to you an eye make-up that will make your eyes pop.

     A cat-eye is an exotic eyeliner option that adds interest and intrigue to your face. We’ve been seeing it on celebrities and red carpets events everywhere for the past couple of months. For some, this look maybe intimidating, but don’t worry I’ll make it as easy as possible for you.

Here’s how:
  •       Apply a thin line with liquid eyeliner along your upper lid, you can always build up to the preferred thickness. The line depends on how fierce you want to look, the thicker the fiercer!
  •  Extend a small flick at the end of the lash line pointing up towards the end of the brow line.
  •    As if you’re drawing a triangle, connect the end of the flick to the eyeliner.  Make sure that the line connects smoothly to the existing line you already created. 
  •                Now fill in the space. 

     I know this sounds lame, but practice makes purr- fect, and once you mastered the rules in application, feel free to experiment with various shades. Here are celebrities who also love this look.

 .....and ladies best of all, this makeup style is adaptable to all sorts of scenes, be at the office, to the concert, a dinner party, or a night-out with the girls.  Have fun!
