Simplicity is Golden

Most girls I know love getting dolled up at least once in a while. It’s always fun to get your hair done, apply a smokey eye, load on the bling and strut your stuff in sky-high heels. I am definitely one of those girls. However, I’m also a true believer that sometimes less truly is more.

We all seem to strive for effortless style, whether it is casually running errands on your day off, going to work or dressing up in a boy-approved outfit for date night. It is safe to say that celebs such as Emmanuelle Alt, editor-in-chief of Parisian Vogue, Sienna Miller and Rachel Bilson all have this look perfected.

Keep your hair and makeup fairly natural, not underestimating the power of only mascara and a great coloured lipstick. Add a tailored jacket, skinny or boyfriend style jeans, a simple white tee, a great watch and voila, effortless style. Stay golden my friends.
