Elegance is timeless, classic, and it never goes out of style. Femininity can be expressed in an elegant manner using a few quick tips. While not all women desire to be elegant and feminine, those who choose to be classy and elegant certainly know how to light up any room. The idea behind elegance is to be simple, yet glow with confidence and look good physically and be great mentally.
Sometimes all you need to go from plain to elegant are a few minor changes to your wardrobe, grooming, and behavior. I hope my tips will give you some inspiration to showcase your elegance.
TIP 1: CARE FOR YOUR HAIR & NAILS
Ladies, this is very important! Make sure you practice proper grooming and spend time caring for your hair and nails. It's very off-putting when a woman walks into a public place and her hair is all disheveled and her nails are all spotty. The truth is that appearance still matters in 2019. Looking elegant and classy will gain you more respect from everyone around you.

Choose SIMPLE nail styles:
- french manicure
- neutral nail polish
- natural or mid-length nails which don't hinder your day to day activities
You don't want your nails to be a distraction. The goal is to make sure your nails are clean, the cuticles are clean and the nails look healthy. As long as you're not painting your nails in crazy colors, they are fine.
A simple pinkish neutral polish goes a long way.
Your hair tells a lot about your grooming habits. Make sure hair looks cared for and healthy.
Choose pretty & feminine hair accessories that instantly boost your hairstyle. Also think about curls, textured waves, or short stylish bobs. Make sure you choose a hairstyle that suits the shape of your face and avoid any colors that are not classy.
If you want to add a simple touch of elegance to any hairdo, think of adding pretty hair accessories like headbands, hair clips, and hair ties.
Pearls are classics, always on-trend, and a must-have in every elegant lady's collection.
A pearl headband makes you look polished, even on bad hair days!
Look for pearl hair clips as well, such as these suggestions:
Embellished hair clips elevate any look because they make you look put together at all times.
I also like hair accessories if the hair is greasy because it hides the greasiness.
TIP 2: HAVE GOOD POSTURE
Believe it or not, your posture can really say a lot about who you are. If you want to project confidence and elegance, you need to have a proper upright posture. Your shoulders should be pulled back, your chest needs to stick out moderately and you should stand up straight.
Avoid SLOUCHING, sitting with your back hunched over, and sitting with your knees apart. You want to have a proper posture at all times while walking, standing, and sitting.
Good posture is not only elegant, but it's also good for your health. Bad posture leads to back problems and digestion problems.
TIP 3: ALWAYS WEAR A SIGNATURE FRAGRANCE & SMELL GOOD
An elegant woman appreciates a good perfume/fragrance. Wearing a classic signature scent or having a few alternating scents gives the impression of someone who cares about their presence and appearance. Most people will appreciate someone who smells clean and fresh and has a lovely scent.
Choose a fragrance that you absolutely love. Don't hesitate to invest in a high-quality fragrance that lasts all day. Everyone can tell the difference between a woman who smells like deodorant and a lady wearing a powerful scent.
A classic perfume is a must-have. Consider brands like Chanel, Guerlain, Tom Ford. You can invest in 1 or 2 signature fragrances, no need to spend loads of money on multiple scents.
A quick tip: choose 1 spring/summer scent with a floral scent, and 1 autumn/winter scent that is rich and deeper, even sweet and spicy.
TIP 4: DRESS SIMPLY AND MODESTLY
An elegant lady has beautiful clothes that are simple in design but timeless. You want to wear clothes that are not too tight, not too revealing of your cleavage, and clothes that suit your body type. I don't believe there is a perfect "elegant" body type - everyone can become elegant with the right choice of clothing.
Wear feminine pieces like midi-skirts, midi-dresses, floral prints, romantic blouses, neutral colors, etc.
It's all about dressing properly for every occasion and never looking too casual or wearing leggings out all the time.
Here are some examples of elegant dresses:
TIP 5: WEAR LIPSTICK
My final tip is very simple: wear a lipstick color that suits you. Even if your makeup is very natural or minimal - add a pop of color to your lips and your face will get noticed. The color doesn't have to be a bold red if it doesn't suit you. Go for something you like and know will look good on you.
Milani has a good range of matte lipsticks
A classic red is great for a night out or special occasion
I like the Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink formula because it STAYS ON ALL DAY!
I hope you enjoyed these quick tips and remember to always be elegant and kind!
As Coco Chanel once said: A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.
