Have you ever looked at those beautiful girls who seem to have it all together and wish you were like them? Some people seem to always be graceful, well dressed and smiling those mysterious little smiles that keep you wondering what their secret is. A lot of girls can scrounge up a fashionable outfit every once in awhile, but how do we match those women who always look so attractive, mature and feminine? How to be, in a word, a real lady? Well, it requires some practice. Here are a few tips to help you out, as you prepare to become the world’s next Audrey Hepburn.
Elegance lies in simplicity, and this should be the main focus of your wardrobe. Classic cuts and designs will get you far, without making you look like you’re trying too hard. A little black dress, a pencil skirt with a blazer, simple black heels – all these are trademark styles that look good on everyone. Find out what cut is right for your body type and build from there. In order to be a true diva, you must take this simplicity and make it your own by adding unique details. Which brings us to our next point…
Remember this simple, obvious fact – you are not a Christmas tree. Therefore, don’t pile tons of jewelry and knick knacks onto yourself every time you go out. Use a cocktail ring, or a pair of chandelier earrings to accentuate your evening outfit. Have your own signature perfume, or a lipstick. Browse the internet for interesting pieces of jewellery and clothes, and you’ll find many unique pieces. Also, find some sexy sunglasses online, or a big leather bag. Whichever you choose, remember one thing – don’t wear all of these at the same time. One or two things are more than enough because true sophistication does not lie in shiny baubles, but tasteful pieces that are there to accentuate the outfit, not draw all the attention away from it.
Clothes are there merely to enhance your good features, so make sure you keep yourself healthy and clean. Being fashionable isn’t just about what you’re wearing, but about how much you take care of your own body. If you care about your appearance, then make sure you eat well and exercise.
Another trademark of a true diva is her hair. Whether your hair is short or long, you should keep it smooth and silky. In the end, it doesn’t even have to be about beauty, but about the fact that you care about your own health and well-being. Most elegant women spend a lot of time developing healthy habits because they know that if you feel good, you will look good, too.
If someone were to drop a giant bag of cash and a suitcase full of Chanel costumes right into your lap it would still not help you be elegant if you don’t have the right attitude. This is probably the most important bit, because it’s the one that can never be faked, or improvised. It has to be learned. A true diva does not only know how to dress well, but has poise and manners, and above all, she knows that she is a diva. No one can take that away from her, and she does not need reassurances because she’s confident and happy with who she is and how she acts. Being stylish means being brave – it’s about experimenting and not being afraid to be who you are. So, above all, have the right mindset and the rest is all about having fun.
