We Want To Steal Taylor Swift’s Retro Chic Style Reaaally Badly

Who would have thought this teenage country singer would turn into such an international chart-topping retro style guru.

We did not. But in all fairness, TS only truly caught our eye last year; before then, she was mainly a US attraction we think (that’s our excuse anyway).

It seems as a teenager, Taylor was a tad style-confused, regularly mixing bohemian looks with more country items and Disney princess dresses. We appreciate the individuality despite the fact that the results were sometimes well… let’s just say she would not have made it on our best dressed list. But we do rate anyone with their own personal style.

We have no idea how the transition to her current style happened (hired a stylist? Had an epiphany? Who knows…) but we have to say we love it – the girl knows her granny chic and retro looks! We also love that she doesn’t try so hard to be obviously sexy or provocative with her casual day-to-day wardrobe, but that she can switch to such a glamorous vixen on the red carpet.

Key words for Taytay’s look: Retro, vintage, preppy, granny chic, girly.
Key items/styles: Satchel bags, brogues, plaited hair with a fringe, plain or classic patterned sweaters, ‘cute’ dresses, high-waisted swing skirts, polka dots and florals.

Moving on SWIFT-ly (HA. Yes, we know that’s a bad pun… oh well, we chuckled), we give you Taylor-The-Prep-Master-Swift. Nice ring to it don’t you think?

Lace Dresses For The Win This Summer

Happy Friday to you all! Any plans for the weekend? Going out anywhere nice? I know I am!
So here’s my question: what are we all wearing tonight?
Don’t know? Well here’s one trend that isn’t running out of steam anytime soon which you might want to look into: the lace dress.

At StyleChi, we are big fans of this trend for two reasons.

1) You can adapt your lace dress to your own style: you can be an angel, or you can be the devil.
2) Lace dresses make us feel like we’re princesses, and that’s always a definite plus.

Here are a few celebrity looks to inspire you; the lace dress can be worn long, short, monochrome or in a flashy colour.

The Thigh High Slit: Worth The Risk?

At StyleChi.com we are currently loving some of the thigh high slit dresses worn by our favourite celebrities on the red carpet. As you may have noticed with the latest Cannes red carpet looks however, thigh high slits can also be a recipe for disaster and lead to rather unfortunate wardrobe malfunctions as Eva Longoria and Rosario Dawson (and the rest of the world) now know.

What do you think of the trend: worth the risk or not?

Thigh high slit fans: Rihanna, Taylor Swift, Diane Kruger

Wardrobe malfunction victims: Eva Longoria and Rosario Dawson
