Happy Friday all! This week's fashion via my Polyvore account is about a style I will one day aim to be everyday... chic. By everyday I mean just that. Right now in my life I like to mix things up... a lot! You never know which direction I am going to be coming from. But this isn't abut me... 
So, you want to be chic huh?
Well, chic is pretty simple. Fashionable and attractive. High end.. blunt. Most chic girls sport designer bags, mixed with sophisticated pieces. This is definitely more of a mature look. You will not find too many wild prints with this look. Chic is basic colors, heavy stripes, midi length dresses and skirts, wide leg pants, layers, and lets not forget the dashes of leopard print. Seersucker is not uncommon neither is a pencil skirt and blazer. Shades are a MUST. 

Tips for being chic 
  • Check your footwork- Select loafers or flats (especially leopard print), pointy pumps, and a casual/classic sneaker such as a black or white all stars. 
  • Load up on basics- I mean just that. Basic tees and button down shirts. Solid color bottoms and jackets. Never ever forget your LBD (Little black dress)
  • Know where to shop- you can not go wrong shopping at Gap, Zara, Banana Republic. Topshop if you're feeling funky. Forever 21 is great if you're on a budget but I warn you...go through the items with a fine pick comb. These stores oooooze chic! Urban Outfitters won't cut it. 
  • Accessorize- Look for bold statement piece necklaces, bejeweled pieces, and a good pair of diamond studs. A bold menswear watch is also acceptable. Stay away from the plastic stuff. Hardware is the only acceptable material when it comes to being chic. And it is okay to not over do it.. if you just want to wear stud earrings that is perfectly fine. Remember chic is simple yet bold. 
  • Find inspiration- Google "how to dress chic" and look at the images. A perfect example of a real life chic person is Victoria Beckham. I have said it before and I stick to my word. She is the epitome of chic. Another blogger who mixes things up is Bee over at atlantic-pacific.blogspot.com this girl is dope! Period. Follow her and be inspired. 
I think that about covers it in a short sweet way, if you're interested in being chic or weren't quite sure I hope this helps.
