Secret Tips for going from Grunge to Chic in Seconds!

Haven’t we all been there – you suddenly have to go out, haven’t had time to think about what you should wear and if you don’t leave within the next 10 minutes you will be late – EEEK!

3 Super easy tips which will save you every time:

1) A chunky necklace  – will dress it up any outfit!


My current favourite is this one from MaxMara – I love combining it with a white T-shirt but it also works with patterned items believe it or not 😉

Have spotted these cute necklaces online:

2) A  Nice Wrap

Especially at this time of year when the weather gets a bit colder outside you can get away with simply putting on a beautiful  wrap over anything and instantly be presentable.



This is my favourite vintage wrap I once bought in a little shop in Zurich years ago!

3) A pair of Fun Shoes

The impact of shoes is not to be underestimated and if you get it right you may get people looking at your feet and not even registering the rest of your outfit – smile!


My personal favourites for this Fall are the flat brogues from Coliac


If you are looking for something cheap and cheerful though with impact – I seem to be living in these gold slip ons I picked up in Zara CHF 49- was thinking of gluing stones on them for a bit of extra impact 😉

With that I wish you all a super weekend whatever you end up doing have fun!
