Leave it to Coco Chanel to say something so inspiring and true - women of all ages try to achieve classy and fabulous looks! Unfortunately though, it's not as easy as it sounds. You need to appear polished, well mannered, fashionable, and not too over the top! Here's my take on how to appear classy and fabulous.

Tips on looking classy and fabulous

  • Have proper etiquette: How classy you look will always be based on how you present yourself. Whether you're at a dinner party, the mall, or even a bar, your posture, manners, and language all reflect your level of class. It doesn't matter if you're wearing a Zuhair Murad dress, if you're slouched, drunk, and throwing around the F-bomb, you wont look classy. Remember to be respectable and tasteful. 
  • Be knowledgeable: Being aware of politics, current events, or at least knowing the facts about the country you live in is all respectable. It shows that you have a career and are educated which is, undoubtedly, very classy. 
  • Dress the part: You need to appear put together and well polished if you want to look classy and fabulous. If you look vulgar or wear ripped or stained clothing, you wont look classy. On the other hand, if you wear plain business suits everyday, you wont look fabulous! Make sure to find a balance and look fashionable, respectable, and elegant.

Outfits for Inspiration
 Outfit 1: Sheer Elegance
For this outfit, I chose a very classy and pretty white dress with different textures. To accompany it, I accessorized with a cream colored clutch and pearl earrings - a timeless, classic wardrobe essential.For a bit of color and glam, I added a pair of fun, purple heels. Finally, I finished the look with a pair of stylish sunglasses, and bright red lipstick (an instant touch to make any ensemble fabulous.)

Outfit 2: A Stroll in the Park
For this ensemble, I started with an elegant, powder-blue dress - it has just the right amount of modern elegance and class. I then added shoes that complimented the color-blocked dress and a classic brown coat. I then accessorized with a bowed hat. the 'oui' bracelet represents a bit of Coco's French background and the bow earrings compliment the other bows in this outfit (blue sash, and hat). To complete the look, I chose a simple, feminine clutch. 

Outfit 3: Date Night
For this formal ensemble, I started with a simple, strapless black dress and accessorized with a leather bow belt. Next, I added a stunning purse and long, intricate earrings to add some sparkle to the outfit. I then chose classic, pearl bangles, and a pair of exquisite heels. Finally, I finished the look with an elegant coat.

  14. I really liked this post! The outfit inspiration is lovely, you picked some great pieces and I think I could wear each one of the outfits here.

    Your tips are also so right on! Too many people seem to think that clothes make the (wo)man while it's the other way around. Good manners can get you far even if your clothes' price tags didn't have three zeros on them.

    I'm looking forward to the next post in the series :)
