Don't you find it amazing how easily stylish ladies like Toni Gonzaga, Kim Jones, and Anne Curtis put together outfits with oomph factor? Though they do have stylists when they are in front of the camera, they still look effortlessly chic when they are off-duty (case in point: their random Instagram snaps). We decoded their foolproof formula, so you, too, can slay your style score.

1. Air-dry your locks.

Perfect twirls are proof that you took time to take care of your hair. Also, it’s more practicalnot to mention, healthierfor your hair to dry naturally without the use of heat-styling tools. To make sure that you’ll still get a good hair day, whether you’ve got straight, wavy, or curly locks, massage leave-on conditioner on damp hair, and set them in two or four (depending on your hair’s length and thickness) buns before you go to bed. Doing so will create natural-looking hair bends with texture and bounce—those we often see on off-duty models.

2. Go natural.
Nothing looks more effortless than the no-makeup look. BB creams or lightweight, skin-perfecting foundations bestow a naturally flawless finish. Add subtle hints of color on the cheeks and the lips and you're good to go.

3. Pick a basic outfit formula
Whether you're choosing something casual, like a white tee and jeans, or something fancier like a sleek LBD, classic pieces will never fail to raise your style score. Just make sure that whatever garb you select fits you perfectly. Anything that is ill-fitting will make you look sloppy and trying hard.

4. Add a personal touch.

Putting on a standout piece that represents your personal style along with your basic outfit formula will do the trick. If you’re leaning toward ladylike polish, a pair of bejewelled earrings and a tailored blazer make for great add-ons, while a bold watch and a pair of ripped jeans serve as cool extras for an edgy girl.

5. Pay attention to your bag and footwear.

There is a saying that bags and shoes complete the outfit. For casual days, cool sneakers or pretty ballet flats will do. If you’re off to a dressy occasion, go with sleek and strappy heels. When it comes to bag styles, pick one that complements your outfit and body type. Also, keep in mind that your bag and shoes must always be clean!

6. Be confident

Your stance shows how you feel inside. It’s important to think happy thoughts—trick your brain that you can rule the world! Remember, the key to looking effortless is not to overthink things. Clothes are just clothes. At the end of the day, how you feel about yourself is what's most important.
