we’ve wished it was, but trust Jean
Paul Gaultier to take the generally
frumpy and turn it into something
stylish and elegant. His Cashmere

contrast in length from front to
back and details such as the black
contrasting collar and belt. It even

56 The word “chic” is very common when we’re
talking about style, but what is it exactly
that “chic” means, and how de we create
a “chic style”? I have some suggestions. In
a few words, “chic” means classy, timeless
and closet smart. Also, to create a “chic
style” you need to give attention to the
basics pieces, getting to know yourself,
being feminine and having self-confidence.
By basic pieces, we mean a pair of black
trousers, a white shirt, a little back dress or
a trench coat, which are the sole foundation
of a “chic style.” If you don’t have those basic
pieces in your closet, go and get them. Get
to know yourself. You need to know what
looks good with your coloring, body figure
and personal style. Be feminine. It’s about
getting in touch with your womanly side and
being girly and playful. Try wearing a short
flounced skirt or a nice wrap dress. Wear lace
blouses or tights. Also focus on accessories
that create statements. Fabrics like silk
always will give your outfit a feminine touch.
It’s important that you get to know your
personality and lifestyle to express yourself
with confidence. Even though your personal
style is timeless, you need to know how to
adapt the latest trends to your personal style
and make it yours. Don’t try to be another
person and don’t forget, a smile is a great
way to bring out your true self!
