Elegant And Classy Everyday Looks

Most of us work 5 times out of a working week and finding ways on how to look elegant and classy everyday of those days can be tricky. 

This is especially more difficult for those that are on a budget, have limited wardrobe options but still wanting to look good to impress their co-workers. 

In some cases, it is specifically required for you to look good in order to work in certain establishments. 

Either way, we are going to share our awesome tips on how to look elegant and classy everyday without breaking the bank!

Did you know that by adding a bit of elegance and sophistication to your style can help boost your personality?

This will also help boost productivity at work as you will be more confident and willing to do more things during work hours! 

In other words, if you “Look Good“, you “Feel Good“!

How To Dress Classy

Dressing classy is not as hard and boring as everyone thinks.

It just means looking appropriate, wearing clothes that fit and choosing an outfit doesn’t stand out too much.

If you are dressing as if you have just walked out of a club, I wouldn’t consider that classy.

Mind you some people dress classy and sophisticated for a night out dancing. So it all boils down to what you consider classy. 

Establishing Your Personal Style

Before you head on out to spend all sorts of big money in order to feel good, be sure to reconfirm your work attire with your place of employment. 

For example, where I work, business casual is highly recommended. 

Also, we can not show any cleavage, wearing a small sweater or jacket is always recommended, no jeans (except for lay low Fridays)! 

Also wearing make-up to a bare minimum is highly recommended and respected.

We do not want you to lose your personality while establishing your personal style. 

What is a personal style? 

A personal style is wearing clothes and fashion pieces that you can personally relate with. 

We all have our own unique taste and a personal style that we prefer to stick to.

Ideally, you will be sticking with items and things that you can identify yourself with.

This will showcase your personality, your mood combined with your inspirations, lifestyle, hobbies, and interest.

For work, less is more but it does not mean plain or boring.

1// Invest in Timeless Fashion

In order to stay on budget and still look relatively fashionable, purchase items that never go out of style. 

A lot of women make the mistake of purchasing items that are currently trending because their favorite celebrity is rocking them.

By doing this, you will need to purchase something else when that item goes out of style!

A few timeless fashion pieces include black pumps, trench coats, blazers, pencil skirts, high-waist long black pants or a little black dress! 

Loving the pants below:

2// Use Accessories To Pop A Boring Outfit 

If you have an outfit that just seems a little boring, try to accessorize it!

I always recommend wearing at least one accessory with your outfit!

A statement accessory can be anything from a great watch, a pair of earrings, a bright-colored purse or even a necklace! 

Depending on what you chose, this can really make your outfit stand out! 

And don’t be afraid to wear them all.

3// Invest in A Good Pair of Shoes

If you have a good pair of shoes that can work with all your outfits then you are golden!

This does not mean that you are stuck with only one pair of shoes. But a good pair that you can reuse multiple times that speak volume.

Remember, when you look good, you feel good and I think a good pair of shoes will give you the confidence you need!

5// Add a Coat To Your Wardrobe

A good coat makes all the difference to your outfit.

I know during summer this doesn’t always work.

For those that live in an area where we get more cold than warm, be sure to invest in a good coat as this is the way to go for an elegant look!

6// Try Something new

Don’t be afraid to try something new especially if you are used to a particular look and style. 

Experimenting can open you up to new things that you might not have thought of.  

To ensure you feel comfortable, pair anything new with old, that way you stay true to yourself. 

The outfit below has pants I would never wear, but I really love them and I like the look of them paired with any plain tank top.

In other words, mix and match an old outfit with a new one can save you extra cash.

And don’t forget those shoes!

7// Make Your Lips Your Focal Point

Did you know that you can direct exactly where you want people to look at by wearing statement pieces where you want them to focus on? 

You can do this with your lips by wearing BOLD lipstick! 

Just keep in mind your work dress code. By wearing bold color on your lips can really change your overall look and it is cheap to do.

Definitely loving the red lipstick on her.
