There’s no denying that the “I-just-got-out-of-bed-looking-like-this” look is trending but nothing is more elegant or timeless than a well-put together ensemble.
So, in the spirit of all things ladylike, here’s 6 ways to instantly look more polished…
1. FRESH MAKEUP
Your mother wasn’t kidding. Good grooming is key. A natural, flawless complexion is an ideal way of creating a polished look. Choose a foundation that gives skin a matte appearance, without being too dry or flaky (like L’Oréal Paris Lumi Magique Eau de Teint Foundation). Some mattifying formulas can add years to your look but anything that’s too luminous can make you look oily and unkempt.
2. CLASSIC PIECES
Trend-based accessories, when out of date, can make your outfit look a bit tacky. Instead, stick to timeless pieces like an A-line mid-length skirt or black blouse.
3. PATENT SHOES
Adding a bit of shine to your outfit is another simple solution for looking sophisticated. A pair of patent shoes, be it ballet flats or heeled pumps are a smart and stylish option. Normal leather shoes can attract dirt and stains, whereas shiny patent shoes are just a quick polish away.
