The Chelsea look is all about effortless glamour. You need to look like a million dollars, but don’t look like you have tried too hard. Bold prints and huge hairstyles can be saved for those who wish to achieve the Essex style (while you’re on Youtube, search TOWIE, and you will see the difference between the two – TOWIE is a reality TV show based in Essex FYI). When it comes to getting the Chelsea look, opt for natural makeup with a light smokey eye and pale kissable lips. Wear your hair naturally but tamed, of course. Loose effortless curls look stunning. Styling tools from The AirIron can help you to achieve this without damaging your hair. It is all about Beyonce’s “I woke up like this” attitude, even though you didn’t!
If you are going to a red carpet worthy event then you need to go for the long glamorous maxi dress. Opt for a dress that flows elegantly to the floor. Light colours work beautifully. Shades such as ivory, mint, pale pink and lilac look pretty and feminine yet have that subtle hint of sexiness. If you aren’t going somewhere as formal then the Chelsea girls all love their heels, statement trouser and blazer combo. Skinny jeans are a must, however, don’t be afraid to go for a peg leg trouser instead. When it comes to heels, barely there stilettos are all the rage this season and are definitely a must-have. When winter comes back, a statement coat is a must. Chelsea girls make sure they have several show-stopping outer pieces to really enhance their overall look. This year oversized coats are perfect for those seeking the high-end Chelsea style.
Last but not least, we need to get onto the most important style rule of them all; know how to accessorise. This is where the Chelsea girls really excel. Invest in a high-quality statement handbag, such as the popular Mulberry bags. Also, make sure you invest in a quality statement watch. This is your number one accessory. Think big, think glamorous. So, you have your bag and watch, everything else should be subtle. These two accessories take all of the attention. Earrings, bracelets and alike should be elegant and feminine. Never overdo it. One statement piece is always better than going completely overboard!
So there you have it; follow this advice and you can achieve the stunning Chelsea look. Will you be bringing a taste of Chelsea to the U.S.? This is a sure-fire way to make yourself the ultimate trendsetter.
