HOW TO ACHIEVE AN EFFORTLESS LOOK

Good morning everyone, today’s ensemble is on this effortless look. This is my go to everyday wear minus the red lip, a great pair of faux leather trousers, a blazer, a white tee and either some boots, espadrilles or trainers/sneakers. I know everyone has their own effortless look that they tend to wear without having to think about it.

I am not one of those girls that can go out bare faced without an ounce of make-up. The reason is I have dark circles under my eyes from lack of sleep over the years from having three children. I know a lot of you mums out there can relate. Hence the reason I will not leave the house unless I am wearing my tinted moisturiser (my go to is the NARS one) when I am headed out on my morning school runs.

I have recently bought the Caffeine Solution from The Ordinary to combat my tired eyes. It is early days yet so I can’t review whether or not it works. I shall get back to you all on that if and when I do see any significant changes.  If any of you know of any products that has worked please do let me know! We all have our hang ups and that is one of mine.

 

HOW TO ACHIEVE AN EFFORTLESS LOOK

/BLAZER Similar / TEE / FAUX LEATHER TROUSERS / BAG Similar / SUNGLASSES / WATCH / SHOES/

So my uniform for those days when I am either in a rush or CBA, this is my go to outfit. Along the way I have learnt to find some hacks that saves me time and can make the best of a bad situation. Although I do love wearing black and white as I find it to give that put together look even if you are having a bad day. Of course don’t get me wrong it totally depends on what you are wearing and how you have styled it! Here are few of my hacks to an effortless look.

BLAZER

First of is to have a blazer, now I am sure we all have at least one in our wardrobes. If not I would highly recommend getting one as it is the easiest way to amp up a look. Whether it’s oversized or tailored thats up to you. I tend to mix it up, there are days I will wear my oversized one and there are those other days were I feel like wearing my tailored one. This is what I am wearing here, it’s is my black tuxedo blazer from Karen Millen, with it’s fancy lapels. The impact of a well tailored blazer is enough to make an outfit look put together and give you that confidence to walk a little taller, even on the days you feel like you CBA.

FAUX LEATHER TROUSERS

Right so the faux leather trouser is one of my staple pieces. However, if you want you can go for some leggings. These faux leather biker trousers I am wearing are from H&M and are a few years old. For me I find wearing my faux leather biker trousers tend to keep me warmer on those chillier mornings without having to layer up so much. Also they make me look put together and give my overall look a little edge too. Like I said earlier if you want to wear leggings then that is absolutely fine too. Make it work for you, thats my motto, that way you will always feel more confident.

WHITE TEE

Moving onto my white slogan tee from Victoria Beckham. Now we all have some white tee’s in our wardrobes, and if you don’t you can always borrow your partners. One of the easiest item to style and wear on those days you CBA. The white just breaks up the all black look I have going here. Tuck your tee at the front to give you that cool girl vibe.

TUCKING HAIR BEHIND THE EAR

We may or may not have all the time in the morning to do our hair. So for me I tend to find that a few strands of hair at the front tends to get much more curlier then the rest of my hair. So for that reason I just tuck them behind my ears, it is also my lazy day go to. Tucking my hair behind the ears gives me that chic effortless vibe.

SHOES, TRAINER/SNEAKERS

I know straight away most of you will go for some flats for your CBA days. Now for me as I am a heel kinda girl most days it would be my calf boots with a smaller heel or during the Spring/Summer months I tend to wear my espadrilles. Of course there is the simple sneaker which has come along way over the years. It is no longer worn just for going to the gym or for running. There are some fabulous pairs out there which means that you can remain casual and also look put together at all times. As for me here I could not resist these t-bar court shoes in the colour nude from Reiss.

ACCESSORIES

As for the finishing touches I opted to wear my Modalu England Rosie bag in black. Next I am wearing my Rose Gold Venice Moonphase watch from Filippo Loreti. On my lips I am wearing the shade Red Velvet from Lime Crime Velvetines. Although red is not my every day colour it certainly does amp up the outfit. My go to every day lip wear is either my Chanel Rouge Coco Baume or my Lime Crime matt lipstick in the shade Teddy Bear. You all know by now how much I adore that shade. Finally not forgetting my trusted Le Specs Sunglasses in the style Rapture, which hides my tired eyes. So there you have it, my style hacks for achieving an effortless look.

    My effortless look would be a midi dress and a pair of heels. It’s quick and easy way to look pull together.
    I absolutely love your look. Those faux leather pants look great on you and paired with a white tee, they look super effortless and easy. Great heels and jacket too. Perfect effortless outfit!

    I’m super lazy with make up but I like a good lipstick. Speaking of the under the eye area, I use some kind of green tea roller for under my eyes, I think it’s by Balea,I bought it for my husband because he wears glasses so I though he might like it, but I ended up using it because it has a nice cooling effect. I think all products with caffeine are probably good for tired eyes, products with green coffee are often mentioned these days. I also heard that it helps to keep an eye-cream or regular cream in the fridge and then apply it under the eye area.

    I love this effortless, chic look! It looks perfect for busy days where you want to be able to move around a lot but still look put together. The t-shirt and blazer go great together and I love the leather pants!

    I love that the effortless look is very easy to do, and it’s easy to adapt to everyone’s own personally look, and most people already have in their closets. Only things I would things personally change for me is I don’t wear make up (I do have eye bags and dark circles, but I also think it’s genetic since I’ve had it since a teen), the white shirt (I will spill something on it, I’m very clumsy), and my normal hairstyle is just a ponytail (I don’t like my hair touching me, but I don’t want it short. lol) This looks so amazing on you Lovely!

    I love that NARS tinted moisturiser, I pretty much replaced it for foundation now. I’m also loving faux leather pants. Need to reinvest in a new pair since I sold my old faves a while back

    I so love this effortless look! I always love seeing how people can dress a basic tee and not make it look so basic. By the way, I don’t even have any kids and I already have dark under eyes lol, but I use Tarte Concealer. I might have to give Nars a try!

    Wow you look amazing. The leather pants and white tee is so chic. Did you cut your hair? It looks gorgeous and so healthy. My go to effortless look would be a white tee, blue/jeans and a blazer.

    Such a fun monochrome outfit! I find that blazers always dress up an outfit and help me feel more pulled together, and I love the graphic tee with it, a nice casual outfit 🙂 My usual go-to when I’m in a rush is a dress as it’s a grab and go outfit, haha!

    Hope you are having a great week! My mum and I both have the day off today so we are going to have fun and go shopping 🙂
