15 Tips for an elegant look
Wearing expensive clothes won't necessarily make you look classy unless you suit them well. At the same time, you can look really stylish by wearing clothes that are affordable. All you need to do is stop making these very common mistakes.
1. Combining jewelry
Never combine different metals, only wear one.
2. Combining colors
Choose unbeatable combinations of 2, maximum 3 colors.
3. Tights and socks
Never, ever wear open footwear with tights or socks.
4. Glitter and sequins
You don't have to shine like a star to look like one! Wear clothes with a few, well-placed sequins, instead of clothing fully covered in glitter.
5. The bag
Choose a bag with well-defined lines instead of a huge one.
If you're going for an elegant look, wear subtle jewelry instead of oversized plastic imitations.
An elegant outfit never shows your underwear.
Always choose rich, heavy colors instead of neon or faded shades.
9. Brand logos
Huge logos on clothes look cheap, especially if you're wearing fakes. You don't have to buy expensive brands. Just wear the ones you can afford and actually look good.
Lace on a dress looks elegant but only if there isn't too much of it.
11. The size
Wear clothes that fit perfectly, not larger or smaller.
Large platform shoes look way cheaper than the classic stilettoes.
13. The neckline on a dress
If you're going for elegance, never wear an overly revealing neckline, but a subtle one instead.
14. Wearing black
Black looks elegant and classy, but make sure it's not faded. If you'll wear a black dress, it has to look as good as new.
15. Animal Print
Animal print can look elegant, if we're talking about a single accessory that completes an outfit, like a scarf. A whole animal print outfit looks cheap and snazzy.
