When you are in between seasons, you may have some difficulty choosing the proper clothes to wear. Maybe you think the items in your closet don’t look chic at all. Here are some tips on how to look chic in your basic denim shirt or black jacket.
◇ Denim shirts for both outer and inner wear
A denim shirt is very useful, if you know how to put it to good use. Depending on its design and thickness, it can be styled in a variety of ways for use as outer or inner wear. On a warm spring day, put on a denim shirt as stylish outer wear. Kara’s Kang Jiyoung and actor Yoon Eun Hye recently sported a carefree look in vintage faded denim shirts.
Layering another garment over a denim shirt is highly recommended. In this case, a smart color match is a key to the success of the look. Davichi’s Kang Min Kyung created her typical chic air through the layering of a leopard jacket and a denim shirt. Actor Wang Ji Hye completed a simple but impressive look by perfectly balancing black and blue.
Don’t forget one of the most elementary uses of denim shirts: wearing one with basic cotton pants or a knit item. Actor Sung Yu Ri caught many an eye as she showed up at a shamanistic ritual to pray for good luck for her new drama series in a contrasting outfit consisting of a denim shirt and bright-red pants.
◇ A black jacket for any occasion and any time
Make better use of your black jacket. It is suitable for many purposes. For formal occasions, you can look neat and tidy with a black jacket worn over a showy dress or blouse. SNSD’s Sunny and Kara’s Park Gyuri accentuated their feminine appeal by matching a black jacket with a lacy dress.
For Hollywood stars, a black jacket is a required item and one of the favorite items to complete a casual look. Miss A’s Suzy and Davichi’s Kang Min Gyung seem to have learned the Hollywood stars’ styling know-how. They successfully carried off a cheerful image by pairing a black jacket with short pants and a chic white blouse. Folding back the sleeves of the jacket is a crucial point of the look.
Recently the matching of a black jacket with a fur vest is in vogue. SNSD’s Sooyoung boasted of her fashion taste in tone-on-tone styling.
