Easy elegance and utilitarian chic

This look was created for the Autumn Personality, and when it comes to fit, a sense of comfort is super important for this type. The perception of comfortable clothes made of practical fabrics and useful accessories doesn’t really convey “elegance”, I hear you. But my job is to prove you wrong…

With this look, I tapped into the utilitarian aesthetic. Being an Autumn type myself, I love any pieces in khaki, ecru, camel and navy. So it’s not surprising that this look is very appealing to me.

So how do you make a comfortable look effortlessly chic? Well…

A piece of tailoring, like this tailored blazer paired with a utilitarian shirt, definitely screams a high-impact look, don’t you think. I love the lean silhouette and the glamour appeal of these jeans, perfectly paired with flattering leather espadrille to add a retro feel. And to finish, you just need to jazz it up with natural eye make-up, orange-red lip and a practical yet stylish raffia shopper bag for the ideal spring weekend staple…
