If you’ve been dressing up the same way since a while, it’s time to change up your style. You need to add a little bit of sophistication and class to your everyday outfits.
If you’re wondering how to make this transition and how to dress classy, we’re going to walk you through the ins and outs of styling yourself with a more chic, classy and sophisticated style.
1. Wear items that are made of classic fabrics
Always invest in materials that will last well into the next decade. Materials like cotton, silk, wool and linen would look classy at all times. You must clean and press these materials if you always want to look classy and chic in them. Read the labels of your clothes and care for them properly to make them last longer. Wool, linen and silk will have to be dry-cleaned or hand-washed.
2. When in doubt, wear neutrals
Bold patterns and prints will definitely stand out and give a very sophisticated and classy look. If you’re just beginning on your classy style, you might not be too comfortable with bold prints. Neutrals are then going to come to your rescue. Solids and plentiful in the store and so, you must invest in good neutral coloured pieces. Neutral colours are white, beige, cream, navy blue, black and grey.
3. Fit is key
Sophisticated and classy clothing is tailored and form-fitting. Skirts should fit right above or below the knees, classic trousers are straight, slightly wide, faintly bootcut and should be 1/2 inch off the floor in the back. Wide-legged pants, ankle pants and skinny pants are also acceptable. Blazers, blouses and sweaters should follow the curve of your waist as well.
4. Don’t overexpose
Avoid midriff-baring tops, revealing clothes or mini skirts. Necklines for classy clothing are typically collared, boatneck, crew neck or v-neck. To add some variety, you can also try cowl, scoop or square necks. Hem length on skirts and dresses should be just above or below the knee for everyday wear. Armholes on blouses and dresses should not reveal your bra.
5. Don’t go overboard with accessories
You need to add simple jewelry to achieve a classy and sophisticated style. Invest in small silver or gold hoops, pearl or diamond studs. You can also wear silver or gold bangles, tennis bracelets and a watch. For necklaces, you can buy long pendants, pearls, diamond solitaire, etc. Scarves can be a great way to add colour and visual interest to a sophisticated outfit.
