How To Look Chic Even When You're Feeling Lazy | Clozette

We all have those days when we don’t feel like dressing up. It can be because of the energy-consuming weather or the boring repetition of the same old pieces we have inside our outdated wardrobes. Whatever the reason is, don't let these lazy days get in the way of you looking fab!

If you're not up to putting too much effort into your OOTD, don't worry! Here's how you can style up your staples to still get that outfit on point. 


The errand day outfit

A chambray top is one of the perfect go-to pieces for lazy days because it looks effortlessly put together. Complete the casual feel by pairing it with leggings and a comfy pair of boots and you're free to head out in no time.

The easy, breezy ensemble

Not sure what to wear? Too lazy to iron your favourite shirt or button down? It's time to sport that pullover! Pair it with your favourite shorts or skirt and your favourite sneaks for a cozy look that's perfect for fall. 


The airport outfit

Travelling anytime soon? Find some inspo in this classic airport look by going for the basics! Throw in an trenchcoat in place of a cardigan if you want a more Parisian feel or finish off with your ol' reliable gym shoes if you want to go for a more casually, sporty ensemble. 


The go-to OOTD

Gather your favourite pieces and come up with a look that you can work with any time, at any mood. This can be your go-to look if you need to step out but you're not up to dressing up too much. Just make sure you go for pieces that suits your unique style and makes you feel comfy all day.


The 'dressy casual' look

The ultimate lazy day that promises chicness? Definitely dresses! You can complete the look by going for a boho-chic vibe with a floppy hat. Apart from saving you some time on hair styling, hats also add that chic and stylish vibe in any outfit ensemble. You can also put in neutral accessories in the ensemble to give your outfit more dimension without worrying about mixing and matching.

Over the years, our closets have seen trends come and go. There was a time when they were was stocked with different colours of skinny jeans, but have now been replaced with culottes and pleated pants.

While a wardrobe full of trendy pieces is amazing, basics are must-haves too. Because isn’t it every woman’s dream to have a closet full of basics that will defy time, but still complement whatever unique clothes you find along the way? Luckily, Singaporean clothing brand IORA unveiled a new look with a fresh take on must-haves last Monday, 26th September, at VASK Tapas Room in BGC.

A mainstay in the fashion industry for 20 years, IORA’s latest collection contains pieces that will satisfy all your fashion needs whether it’s for casual get togethers, work meetings, and of course, date nights. And with their wide assortment of stylish picks suitable from mums to their little princesses, highlighting your personal style has never been this easy.

Aside from that, though, IORA also unveiled their latest casual line, Lalu, which features fun pieces dolled up with a touch of elegance!

And the best part? Fashionable clothes don't need to break the wallets of women anymore. The brand also announced that everything in their new line has been given a new, more affordable price tag! Their pieces now retail for as low as PHP 499, and can go up to just PHP 2199 -- that's a real steal! While its price tag has changed, its high quality will always be evident in each top and bottom you buy.


The new IORA collection will be available in SM Megamall, Glorietta, Trinoma, SM Cebu, and Ayala Center Cebu in the Philippines this October. 


Here’s the thing about men: not all of them care about style. Sure, they dress well enough, look clean and polished through date-night or even when they’re out with the boys…but at the root of it, style isn’t something they think about 24/7.

So if you’ve ever wondered what it’ll take to get your man dressing a little bit better and step out of his standard uniform of shirt and jeans…it’s this: channel the way Parisians do it and get him to focus on the details.

After all, there’s nothing wrong with a simple shirt and jeans look, it’s a classic favourite. But there are ways to up his style by adding a dash of savoir faire – channeling the French standard of keeping looks tailored and polished, but uncomplicated.

As inspired by French premium label Daniel Hechter, we’re looking through their F/W’16 Lookbook for inspiration on how to dress our man better.

With the brand often regarded as the inventor of prêt-à-porter (aka ready-to-wear), Daniel Hechter is known for its iconic premium designs that blend French savoir faire with sporty elegance and tailored sophistication. And the creative eye behind it all is none other than Christophe Blondin, a designer who has extensive experience working for major designer labels and knows how to pull a man’s style together.

Ready to style your man? Here’s how you can upgrade his look from “just average” to “polished.”


It's how you wear, and not what you wear

Sometimes, a simple tweak on how you wear something is all it takes to polish a look. So if your man is constantly in jeans that look scrunched at the bottom, up his cool-factor by getting him to cuff the jeans. This not only makes the cut of the jeans look better fitted to his frame, but it also adds an interesting detail to highlight his shoes.


Shoes are everything

Speaking of shoes…shoes are everything! You can make a casual outfit look semi-formal with just a change of shoes. So upgrade his shoe collection by getting him a range of dress shoes – such as longwings, oxfords, loafers, and even boots.


Get a tailored suit

Every man needs a suit in his closet that he can wear both to work and to a formal event. But suits look best when they’re tailored to his frame. So if he has a suit that looks a little loose in some places, get it tailored. Or better yet, get him fitted for a new suit from a menswear line that will take into account his body type and style preference.


Accessorise in small doses

Unlike ladies who favour layering accessories together, it looks more polished for a man to accessorise in small doses. So pick just one staple accessory to pull his look together – it could be a watch, bracelet, or cuff links.


Men need bags too

To complete his look, your man needs a bag that isn’t as old-school as a hard briefcase, but still spacious enough to hold his essentials. For a bag that he can take anywhere, go for a structured bag in a tote or courier style to keep his look modern and on-trend.
