What does “chic” really mean to you?
We all say it’s chic when we like the outfit.

Chic, to me, means something that looks effortless and looks still good.
Also, it is more like aura that person (and the outfit) gives out.

How about you?
What comes to your mind when you hear “chic” or say something/someone is “chic”?

To me, chic means graceful and stylish.

And when I hear the word ‘chic’ I picture a Coco Chanel-esque woman with a long rope of pearls and a cigarette holder.

Being stylish, confident, and classy. I think everyone has the potential to be chic by wearing what they want and feeling unstoppable in it =]

“feeling unstoppable in it”
I like that! It means you are comfortable with your outfits and you know you own it, right?
Loves it :) I think you are so right.

To me, Chic is dressing as yourself, who you actually are, in a stylish manner.

Personally I don’t find “chic” to be the the exact same thing as “fashionable” or “stylish.” “Chic” connotes elegance, sophistication, and most of the time, classic. For example, I would never think of the word “chic” if I see a fluoro outfit, but I might call it stylish.

I don’t think there’s anything chicer than mastering sprezzatura.

I think it is effortless, being yourself through your clothes and your demeanor. Not following trends but setting them. Taking risks, and while doing everything else carrying yourself with class.

I second basically everything that was said above. In my opinion, someone can look well put together, but not stylish if they are wearing the same exactly thing everyone else is wearing. Taking risks and dressing for yourself is the most important thing.

basically an outfit that is well put together.
An outfit you look at and think ‘wow’.

In the classic sense chic is defined by elegance and sophistication (think: Coco Chanel, Carolina Herrera), which is why I sometimes have trouble describing some outfits I see here and elsewhere as chic. It’s not always chic, but it certainly can be a very good ensemble (think: Iris Apfel, Carrie Bradshaw). Perphaps for the purpose of personal style and maybe this website you have to use it in your own terms. I think someone who can put together an outfit they feel comfortable in that expresses who they are or want to be is chic and that’s what I try to remember here.

I always say that fashion is what you wear, and style is HOW you wear it! And I think ‘chic’ and having style are one and the same.

A person who knows who they are and what they like makes a fashionable outfit stylish. Whereas a clueless follower…. they don’t wear the item, the item wears them! And thats never chic!
