It is true what they say that appearances matter a great deal. You can be infinitely smart, but no one will take you seriously if you are dressed inappropriately. Of course, each woman has her own unique and beautiful style. However, not all clothes hanging in the wardrobe are appropriate for every occasion. Today, we will show you some tips on how to dress, how to look classy and how to be classy. So if you are smart, learn how to look the part!
How to dress classy
Class is never out of style. It was important hundreds of years ago, it is still important today, and we guarantee that it will matter in the future. A proper outfit can get you very far in your life and career. The way you choose to dress might actually influence your life much more than you can imagine. Regardless of your personal preferences in clothes (or your occupation), an occasion might arise, which would require you to step up your fashion game. It might be once in a lifetime thing, but you still need to be prepared for it. We want to offer you some basic tips on how to look classy in any circumstances.
Tip #1. Stick to the classic materials in your garments
Whether it is a classy dress or a regular sweater, the first thing that catches the eye is the quality of the fabric used in making the garment. Wear more clothes made out of cotton, silk, linen or wool and try to avoid cheap-looking synthetic fabrics. Of course, clothes made out of quality materials are sometimes on the expensive side. However, a well-made piece of clothing can last you several years or even decades, if you care for it properly. Always read the labels and care for each garment accordingly. Additionally, you can find some real gems in second-hand stores or bargain shops. Classy clothes are not always expensive. You can look like a million bucks while wearing something out of your grandma’s closet. Therefore, either splurge on few expensive garments, or have time and patience to look for classy clothes in cheaper shops
Tip #2. Avoid outlandish patterns
Prints and patterns are great, but only if you know how to pull them off. If you are not sure whether this pattern is classy, or if it goes well with other things you are wearing, it is better not to wear it. Instead, stick to basic and neutral colours. Most of the time, try to use the rule ‘less is more’. Less colours, less patterns and less accessories can make you look more serious. Wear monochromatic outfits, avoid bright neon colours, but most importantly, wear your clothes with confidence.
Tip #3. Wear the clothes that fit you
Some women have body types that do not fit the standards of today’s fashion industry. This means that for these women, it is hard to find clothes that fit them well. But if you want to look classy, you cannot wear something that is too small or too big for you. What should you do? Well, there are three choices. First, settle for clothes that fit you, even if you do not like them. Sometimes, they grow on you over time. Second, go to your local tailor and have your clothes fitted for you. But if it is too expensive for you, you have a third option — fit the clothes yourself! Most of the times, you do not even have to be a world-class seamstress. All you need is a few stitches to fix your outfit. YouTube can be a great help in this. However, you can remedy an ill-fitting outfit with a few thought-out accessories that could change the whole look. Never underestimate the power of a well-placed belt or rolled-up sleeves.
Tip #4. Leave something to the imagination
