Who doesn’t want to look fashionable and stylish? Even though we try hard to keep up with the current (rapidly changing) trends, we sometimes struggle to get the look we’ve envisioned in our mind. If you like wearing luxurious pieces, you are naturally on a lookout for different ways to look more elegant. Dressing every day like you’re on your way to the opera might not be so wise, but there are simple ways to give your overall style a luxurious boost, and we’re here to show you how.
Pay attention to your shoes
While it might be easy to wear comfy sneakers everywhere, a pair of ripped old Converse shoes will hardly make you look sophisticated. Investing in good and quality footwear is imperative when you want to make a good impression, especially at work, but that doesn’t mean that you have to spend a fortune on shoes. Simple pointy heels look expensive and they make you look even more professional and classy, so get a couple of pairs in different colors. However, don’t buy shoes that have heels which are so high that you’ll have problems walking. Simple flats are a good solution, whereas 3-inch heels are comfy and elegant, and you can choose between a classic stiletto, slim stiletto, block heel or a good old wedge.
Find ‘that one dress’
Throughout our lives, we have different dresses we love wearing, but for a touch of luxury in your life, you should always have ‘that one dress’ stashed in your closet for special occasions. We’re talking about dresses made of satin, lace, and silk, decorated with glitter, pearls, and embroidery that will make everyone’s head turn. Floor-length and form-fitting, you can find beautiful formal dresses online or you can actually find a good tailor and get a unique one. Wearing a dress like that, holding a nice clutch bag, and with your hair in an elegant bun at the base of your neck, you will look like a princess.
Focus on accessories
You might think that in order for your outfit to be luxurious you need a lot of designer pieces, but it’s not the case. Often, the key is in the details such as your footwear, bag, or the sunglasses you wear, and the rest of your outfit can be minimalistic and simple. Monochrome outfits are perfect for drawing attention to the designer handbag and sandals you’re wearing, just as all-black outfits make your jewelry and makeup stand out more. Feel free to dress down in order to draw more attention to the luxurious details you’re proud of.
Staying warm in style
While it’s easy being stylish in warm weather, remember that good jackets, coats, and cardigans can make or break an outfit. It doesn’t matter what you’re wearing underneath, an elegant trench coat or a fabulous jacket will spice up your outfit in no time. You can spend a bit more money on these pieces, as they are usually made to last long, so you’ll probably wear them for several seasons. A simple black leather jacket, a good old trench with a belt, a navy coat, and a washed out denim jacket will look equally good for years to come if you take care of them, but you might want to go through your closet and see if there’s anything you should finally toss out.
Even though it might be tempting to wear only your best pieces every day, it’s important to find and maintain the balance between elegant and laid-back looks. You don’t want to look like you’ve just rolled out of bed when going to work, but you don’t want to wear expensive jewelry and stiletto heels on your way to the gym either. Indulge in luxury and elegance as much as you want, but give yourself time to be relaxed too.
