While looking at models in magazines or graceful celebrities waving on the red carpet, no woman can deny that she loves their perfect looks and that she imagines herself looking the same. We have to admit it, we all love that perfect, dressed up appearance when everything seems to be in the right place.
Unfortunately, it’s hard to imagine yourself looking like that when you get up early, prepare kids for school, take the bus or a train and any other daily tasks we need to manage. But, it shouldn’t be like that.
If you think twice, even classiest ladies, whose styles we admire so much, like Grace Kelly, Lady D or Audrey Hepburn, they probably didn’t have stylists to keep them looking flawless every day, but they still kept their fabulous appearance. The secret is in small and bold details and tricks that can give a glamorous touch to a more casual outfit.
You don’t need to wait for a special occasion to shine like you’re at the red carpet – include that diva glamour into your daily life. With these advice, you’ll look like diva in no time.
Stick to classics
Classic, timeless garments are called like that for a reason. They survived different fashion trends with some small changes that didn’t effect on the original models. But, these pieces are more than nice clothes; they are the epitome of feminine and graceful style, the one that is most important for a glamorous look. Their secret is in the simple, but appealing form, made to highlight your best features and to be appropriate in various occasions, from casual to formal ones.
If you’re going for a glamorous look, stick to simple, preferably monochromatic colour combinations. The best options are neutral and more natural shades of white, black, beige, navy or grey. Off course, you can add some vivid colours, like red, yellow, purple or green into your combination, but it’s important not to exaggerate when mixing them.
Dare to be different
Every glamourous and chic style has something unique and individual in itself. So, don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone that are your safe outfits. Just remember that all fashion rules are subjective and there’s no such thing as the fashion police. Off course, your outfits should be tasteful and decent, but there’s no harm in a little improvisation, that will set your appearance apart.
The best way to get the glamorous effect is to upgrade your usual outfits with some unusual and extravagant details. Use accessories to do what they do best – improve your look. They can be bold coloured details, like a dark lipstick, a metallic eyeshadow, sparkling big jewelry or statement high heels which can support and enhance the entire outfit.
You can also have a fab look by creating unexpected garment combinations, like wearing one of your elegant evening dresses in some less formal occasion by matching it with a leather jacket, a large satchel and Oxford shoes.
Me, myself and I
If you want to look like diva, you should act like one too. Find some “me-time” in your daily routine and put all worries aside. Even the smallest things can enhance your inner beauty; things like nice and sexy lingerie, taking a long, fragrant bath, having a relaxing massage, treating yourself to flowers or some other details… You’ll see: when you feel good, you look even prettier.
Don’t forget that glamour isn’t just about the right garments and accessories; having the right attitude is half the job. It’s how you feel about yourself and about your worldview. So, instead just following the rules, make you own and don’t bother too much about unwritten conventions and be as fabulous as you like – even on the train to work.
