How to Get a Sophisticated and Classy Style for Mature Women
Change is always good. Trends keep on changing and people tend to follow them blindly, just to get a perfect look. Being a mature woman, what if you don’t feel satisfied and no latest trend quenches your thirst of looking like a lady of class and style? Maybe it’s time to change up your style. Opt for a classy transition because classy is timeless. There are many who believe classy to be boring and lifeless. Which is not true. You can be chic and stylish even with a grown-up approach to dressing. Here we have a comprehensive guide for you to help you out in getting a sophisticated and elegant style.
Step # 1: Know your Personal Style
Just pulling off stylish outfits wouldn’t make you a lady of elegance. The first step is to be authentic and believe in your style. The style that makes you feel confident, is your actual style. Be it bohemian-inspired, minimal or street style. You can style up sophisticatedly even without having a lot of money, so don’t worry about your budget. Examples of Jessica Alba and can explain that.
Step # 2: Don’t be Too Casual
Stop being too casual. That doesn’t mean we are asking you to wear expensive clothes by famous brands and designers. Well stitched, properly ironed and neat clothes are enough to give you that sophisticated glow. [Find here: 20 Best Fashion Looks of 2016: Amal Clooney]
Step # 3: Pick the Classic Fabrics
Silk, linen, wool and cotton are some of the classiest fabrics. They never go out of style. You too can pick these fabrics to update your wardrobe. Take the example of a cotton denim. This is something that suits any style including street or a boho look. For pants, moto jackets or blazers, chino cotton is considered best. Look good and feel good in cashmere. It’s a kind of wool fabric that can be paired with denim. Cashmere is utilized in cardigans, sweaters, pull overs (with denim) or you can simply wear cashmere pants and skirts.
Step # 4: A Monochromatic Outfit
If you can’t decide what prints or patterns you should go for, you always have the choice to go monochromatic. A solid neutral monochromatic dress would suit your age as well as style. To avoid the risk of a boring same look from head to toe, add a pop of pretty color (a different shade of the same color) in the suit. Or try a colorful alligator belt on your waist or a scarf around your neck.
Step # 5: Form Fitting Dresses
Dresses that are too loose or too tight are not going to give you a classy and sophisticated look. You should opt for form fitting dresses that do not reveal much about your figure. If you find a ready-to-wear dress that is loosely fit, get it to your local seamstresses and get it in a form fitting style. There should be no compromise on that.
Step # 6: Suitable Lengths for a Sophisticated Look
Skirts and Dresses: An ideal length for your skirt or dress should be about somewhere around your knees. Just above or below it.
Classic Trousers and Formal Pants: You can pull off whatever style of pants and trousers you like, from flared to ankle pants. Just make sure these are ½-inch off the ground, especially in the back.
Blouses and Blazers: Whatever you are going to adorn on your top part of body, make sure it follows the curve (outline) of your waist.
Step # 7: No Need to Expose!
There is no place of over-exposing for getting a classy and elegant style. Be it your necklines or length of the dress, all should be moderate. Bold styling tricks like deep necklines with cleavage, revealing belly button, midriff-baring tops, must be avoided. That doesn’t mean that you can’t wear a crop top. Pair your crop top with a high waisted trouser. It would reveal very less of your skin.
Step # 8: Tuck in Shirts
Though a half-tuck is quite trendy but not for those who want to get a classy look. Wearing denim or trousers? Don’t forget to tuck in your top.
Step # 9: Well-Structured Dresses
A-line dresses look beautiful and would show off your sophisticated style when you wear it.
Step # 10: Subdued Colors
For elegance and class, pick the colors that are light and easy on eyes.
Step # 11: Men’s Wear Inspired Look
For a grown-up look, nothing could compete a pencil skirt with a tuck in shirt. The second option could be the outfits inspired by menswear, e.g. pantsuit.
Step # 12: Don’t Over Accessorize!
When you are aiming for a classy look, keeping things simple should be the priority. Even your fashion accessories can play a vital role in adding class to your look. The best accessories for a sophisticated look are;
Earrings: Keep them small and simple. The small sized gold, silver hoops, studs and delicate pearl earrings are the best choices.
Neckpieces: Gold or silver chains with pendants, pearl or cross lockets or a diamond solitaire, all can go from the office to after-hours with elegant style.
Ring: Find your perfect accessory with cocktail rings, heirloom rings or thin bands studded with diamonds.
Watch or Bracelet: You can pick any of the two. Both can be perfect piece for any outfit. A watch can be of metal or alligator leather strap. For bracelets, you can choose from a tennis bracelet or bangles made in gold or silver hue.
Step # 13: Hair and Makeup
Your hair and makeup are also the great sources for adding more to your sophistication. Opt for neat and tidy hairdos. Side part, center part or open, straight locks would look perfect. As far as makeup is concerned, avoid bright colors and metallic shades. Nude shades are perfect for your eyes. Be very careful in applying bronzer and blush. Above all, adorn your lips with some light, neutral shade, or applying a gloss can also add a gorgeous glow. Read about 6 Gorgeous Spring Hairstyles that You Can Do in Just 5 Minutes!.
