There’s not one thing that makes a woman chic – it’s a culmination of many things. With this helpful guide, you’ll be more chic. Get ready to be the classiest and most elegant woman around!
1. Define Your Style
One of the easiest ways to be more chic is to dress comfortably and with confidence. The simplest way to do this is to evaluate your body shape. Consider your body type when buying clothes, and remember to opt for clothes that both feel and look good on you.
2. Wear Your Style With Confidence
Being confident is easier said than done; but, with your new defined style, you’ll be one step closer to becoming confident, in no time! Get dressed and wear your new outfit with pride. To be more chic, confidence is key. Remember to stand up straight with your shoulders back to excude confidence and class.
3. Practice Politeness
To be more chic, practice politeness and kindness to others. A truly chic person is polite, kind and respects others. Simple ways to be more polite include saying ‘please’ and ‘thank you’, holding the door open for others, treating waiters/waitresses with respect and giving up your seat when the train or bus is full. With this tip, you’ll be more chic instantly!
4. Keep Yourself Polished To Look Chic
A neat, clean and tidy appearance is a key step to be more chic. It’s important to remember to keep your nails clean and groomed, opt for a tidy hairstyle, keep your facial hair neatly plucked or trimmed, and try to avoid wearing stained or ill-fitting clothing items. Additionally, make sure your shoes always look fresh and polished, and make sure your clothes are clean.
5. Wear Your Best Any Time Of The Day
Dress how you want to dress – that is, don’t save up your favorite jewellery or clothing for special occasions or events. Get used to wearing a fancy piece of jewellery mid-week or putting on a luxurious cashmere scarf just because it feels good on any given day. Not only will it make you feel good, but it will also add class and elegance to your day-to-day outfits.
6. Define Your Hair Type
Learn more about your hair type, whether that’s straight, curly, wavy, thick or fine. You can ask your hair stylist for tips when you are getting your hair cut, or you can look up tips online. Additionally, try to buy hair products that suit your hair needs. For example, if your hair is frizzy, you can look for frizz-reducing conditioners, shampoos and treatments.
7. Keep Makeup To A Minimum
If you have to attend a last-minute special event or gathering, but don’t have time to do a full face of makeup and eyeshadow look, apply a little warm-toned bronzer in your crease and add a little highlighter in your inner corners to make your eyes POP and still look chic. Avoid heavy blush and heavy contouring – when it comes to makeup and being chic, stick to glowy, dewy, minimal-looking makeup.
8. Create A Uniform
One of the big misconceptions about being chic is that you should never buy a piece of clothing that is similar to what you already own and have in your wardrobe. Don’t be afraid to make the most of the knowledge of what suits you and your body, also what you feel the most comfortable in. All of the most stylish women in the world have their own uniform – they keep it simple, minimal, and they know what they look good in and they stick to this formula when they’re choosing new pieces, to add to their collections.
9. Create A Capsule Wardrobe
To be more chic does not take a huge budget or 3 walk-in wardrobes worth of designer and high-branded clothes – you don’t need a lot to look chic. What you do need though, is to make good, sensible decisions when buying clothes. Buy what you need, buy what makes you feel great and hold on to nothing more. And remember to look after your clothes and take good care of them.
