Elegance, style, class. In order to be able to truly ‘level up’ or improve your overall look on the road to becoming an elegant woman, it is essential you invest in the following:
Level up your look with a Timeless Bag
A timeless handbag is always a worthwhile investment. It is a piece that you can wear for years to come. Also one that has the potential to go up in value. It is important to stick to neutral colours when you are investing in a piece for the first time. This will enable you to wear it with almost every outfit. Also, choose a size big enough to fit in all your essentials but one that you could wear in the evenings too. Timeless handbags to invest in.
A pair of good quality leather court heels
Leather court heels in neutral shades, a wardrobe staple. Due to its versatility, these can be worn with jeans for a smart, casual, elegant look, or with a skirt, dress or a pair of tailored trousers. Not only do they give you an air of sophistication, a good quality pair of leather heels will instantly elevate your look. If you are completely against wearing any animal skin, opt for a good pair of satin shoes.
An elegant ¾ length coat
Three quarter length coats are a perfect wardrobe staple. This is because the length enables you to wear it with all kinds of outfits, from jeans to mini, midi and maxi skirts and dresses. Anything longer would look too formal and out of place, and anything shorter could run the risk of looking inelegant. Invest in excellent fabrics such as cashmere and wool mixes. Remember, fabrics are just as important as the cut on a tailored coat, so do not cut corners on your purchase. Again, stick to neutral colours such as camel, black, navy and very light blush pink as these work well with most colours.
A knee length shift dress
A shift dress is a classic piece that every elegant lady should have in her wardrobe to level up your look. When seeking to make a purchase, look out for styles that accentuate your figure. Shift dresses are designed to elevate your look and hide parts of your body that may frustrate you. However, if you wear the wrong styles for your body shape, you could run the risk of looking bulky or shapeless. If you are on the curvier side, a shift dress can run the risk of being tight on your hips and looser everywhere. Should this be the case, think of swapping a shift dress for a loose tunic with a waist belt.
A tailored skirt or trouser suit
Buying a suit is a great idea especially if you are on a budget due to its versatility. You could wear the blazer with jeans, a turtleneck and skirt and you could wear the corresponding bottoms with many different tops of blouses. It is an excellent must have and something which can be used over and over again.
