Be Fashionable and Classically Stylish Together

Tuesday, September 9, 2008

Do you want to follow fashion, but retain your dignity? Do you feel as if dressing classically will make you look old fashioned? Some of today's trends can be a little obscure, especially when hot off the catwalk. This guide tells you how to sort out your wardrobe so you can dress fashionably, without losing your class and style.

1 Send old clothing items to the charity shop, recycle them, or just throw them out! They have no class and will do you no favors. Some things to consider throwing out would be:
* Skirts more than five inches above your knee.
* Heels more than three inches high.
* Boots higher than two inches above your knee.
* Things in fluorescent colors.
* Things with clashing prints e.g. lime green and orange is an extreme example.
* Crop tops and boob tubes, and tops with very low cut chests.
* Fishnet tights with large holes.
* Anything stained or ripped.
* Anything you haven't worn in two years. (You might as well spring clean the wardrobe, while you're clearing it out!)
Now that you have done a major clean out, it's time to go shopping! Make sure you have these key pieces in your wardrobe:
* Black/blue/brown/white trousers (all of them) to go with any top.
* Three or more skirts, different colors.
* Three or more jackets, different colors.
* Many flat shoes, and two pairs with low heels.
* One pair of shoes with a higher heel.
Having these quintessential items helps you stay on track whilst dressing in a classy way. Here's the fun part: You can buy whatever fashion clothes you want, from whatever store! As long as they aren't any of the things in the first list, anyways!
Know that classy dressers have presentable legs. You can wear short skirts, but make sure your legs are fit to be seen if you aren't going to wear tights. That means hairless and with as few bruises as possible. It may be you don't want to shave your legs - if that's the case then don't have bare legs, as other people will see you as unseemly. Skirts with tights are fine.
Don't show too much skin. Bare skin is not classy, no matter how fashionable it may be. This is why you must not wear crop tops, mini shorts or miniskirts. It is not trashy to wear shorts with tights, as long as the colors don't clash and the shorts aren't too short. It is always trashy to wear crop tops. Classy people are far more reserved than that.
Understand that prints are very fashionable, but it's easy to go wrong. Try not to mix prints. Floral skirts should always be worn with plain tops. Printed tops should always be worn with plain trousers or skirts. And the colors have to complement each other - no pink flowery skirts with brown jackets!
Wear what suits you. It's useless trying to follow fashions for the sake of it. To redeem your classic, basic style, know your body shape and what colours suit your eye and hair colors. It's easy to throw together an outfit that looks great on the mannequin - but think. Is a denim waist cost really going to flatter you? Does it really go with that black flowery blouse? It may be sometimes that the overall effect of an outfit in a picture is nice, but alone the clothes don't appeal to you very much. So don't buy them!
Think of the classiest person you know. Let's say Audrey Hepburn. If she were around today, would she wear the outfit you're thinking of wearing? If not it's a good idea to think why, then modify your outfit to make it up to standard.
Being healthy and clean will help your classy appearance. Make sure you have great skin by drinking lots and using cleansing products;, use deodorants and shower or bathe daily! Body odor is not classy!

The basic rule you need to follow is this: Look smart, but not formal. Look intelligent, but not snobby. Look attractive, but not slutty. This is the secret of a classy outfit.

Don't be too reserved or you'll end up looking like your mother or grandmother. Classical doesn't mean old fashioned, it just means stylish and appropriate clothing.
Similarly, don't follow fashions simply because they're 'in'. Think about how you look. If you look trashy, don't buy it. If you can imagine yourself bumping into, say, the Queen, or your favorite celebrity - would you feel embarrassed? If so, you aren't classy enough!
Don't go round telling people they look trashy. Classy people don't just dress well, they are nice and sophisticated too. Be conservative about your attitude as well as your clothes, or people will think you're a snob.
