How do you attract other people? Being elegant is the answer -- by being elegant, you will look feminine, attractive, and mature! This article will guide you to be elegant.
Method 1 of 3: Look Elegant
Step 1. Maintain personal hygiene and adopt a clean lifestyle
Shower when you have to and keep your hair clean. Brush your teeth and use deodorant to keep your body odor fresh.
Step 2. Keep yourself tidy
Comb your hair, trim your nails, and trim the hair on your body to a certain length.
Step 3. Use simple makeup
Use enough concealer, foundation, and powder to even out skin tone and avoid shine on your face. Use unobtrusive eye shadow and lip color -- use natural browns and grays. Eyeliner and mascara should only be used as needed.
However, sometimes you have to color your lips with a lighter color. If you're going to a formal party, for example, use a bright lip color
Step 4. Choose a sleek hairstyle
When you think of elegant women, you usually think of Audrey Hepburn, Veronica Lake, or Nicole Kidman. Then, what do the three of them have in common>? Their hairstyles are slick and pretty, of course. Choose a hairstyle that shows the shine of your hair and matches your posture and clothes. The hairstyle of your choice will make you look more elegant.
Step 5. Take care of your nails
Pink, clear, or French manicure nail polish are great choices. However, keep in mind that all colors can look pretty, depending on how you wear them. Don't ignore any color, including black, unless you don't like it. Take a look at photos of celebs' nails as they attend parties. They use a variety of colors, including black, green, and orange, and most of their nails still look elegant.
Step 6. Use a good perfume
You may not know when someone smells great, but you can imagine it. Make an impression that people will remember by using a light perfume that is sprayed properly. Examples of elegant scents include:
Step 7. Stand up straight
Good posture will help you look elegant. Improve your posture and make sure you are standing straight. Standing tall will also make you look slimmer and curvy.
Method 2 of 3: Dress Elegant
Step 1. Wear good clothes
Avoid clothes that look too casual, dirty, stained, or torn. Do not wear clothes with holes or tatters. Try to dress modestly but neatly when you go out.
Step 2. Wear classic clothes
Avoid clothes that are too "fashionable," such as "bell-bottom" jeans or shoulder pads that are too big. Instead of wearing trendy clothes, get used to wearing classic clothes so that you always look elegant. Knee-length skirts with parallel hem, tailor-made shirts in men's styles, and knee-length jackets are examples of classic clothing.
Step 3. Wear clothes that fit your body
Make sure your clothes fit your body. Don't wear clothes that are too tight to show your curves, or too loose that they're prone to slipping. Don't settle for trying on one size -- every time you try on a new piece of clothing, try on clothes in sizes above and below. To get clothes that really fit, try going to a tailor.
Step 4. Choose a quality fabric
Avoid cheap acrylic or cotton and buy clothes from higher quality materials to make them look expensive, even if your clothes are cheap. Silk, satin, modal, cashmere, Chantilly or other quality lace, a variety of fabrics, and a little velvet can be used. Avoid thick fabrics that make your body look fat.
Step 5. Choose a color with high contrast or a classic color
When choosing clothing colors, choose high-contrast colors that are very bright or dark in comparison to each other (such as red, white, or black). Classic neutral colors can also be considered, such as gray, ivory, light blue, light purple, light green, pink, etc.
Other elegant color combinations include blue and gold, pink and white, and salted egg white and blue
Step 6. Wear simple clothes; don't use too many accessories and don't wear layered clothes
Avoid patterns and pattern mixing. Also, don't overdo it when you dress. The jewelry you wear should be simple and match your outfit and situation. Don't overdress -- dress neatly, but don't push yourself.
For example, a party dress is definitely too much for everyday shopping, but black/dark blue pencil pants, a light brown sweater, and brown boots and jackets can be the right choice. Don't wear a t-shirt, because it's too casual
Step 7. Use accessories properly
Choose accessories that match your outfit, don't overdo it. These accessories must also match your body shape. For example, avoid wide or large earrings if you have a large face, or use stockings with vertical stripes to make your legs look longer and longer.
Step 8. Wear classy clothes
Don't wear clothes that show too much skin, are too tight, or are made of cheap materials (spotted prints, fuzzy fabrics, weird, etc.). Dressing cheaply will make you look cheap or even think you're selling yourself. You will also be considered self-imposed. Dress elegantly by following the guidelines above and avoiding the taboos that have been mentioned, surely you will always look elegant.
Method 3 of 3: Act Elegant
Step 1. Speak well
Use proper grammar, a wide vocabulary, avoid colloquialisms and abbreviations, and speak clearly so that you give the impression of being elegant, like a woman. If you're not used to speaking like this, practice it when you're alone, for example in front of a mirror.
Don't feel that you have to change your accent to look more elegant. Your accent doesn't matter, what matters is your grammar and vocabulary
Step 2. Be calm
Don't show too much emotion, either sad (dramatically crying) or angry (yelling at people and making noise). Your emotions will destroy the elegant image that you are creating in an instant. Therefore, be calm and relaxed.
- Remember that if you (or someone else) isn't going to die from something, then it's no big deal. Take a breath and solve problems one by one.
- If you're having trouble calming down, ask permission to calm yourself down until you calm down.
Step 3. Act as if you don't care
Just like avoiding excessive emotions, you also have to give the impression that you don't care so that you look more classy and elegant. Being too interested or excited about something will make you look childish.
Step 4. Be polite to everyone you meet, even if they don't deserve it
Don't be passive-aggressive or sarcastic when things go wrong. You just have to deal with all situations with politeness. Treat everyone like you are being watched and will get a reward.
Step 5. Be as elegant as possible
Walk like a supermodel wherever you are or how you dress. Be careful not to fall while wearing high heels. Don't try to dance beyond your means. If you want to be more graceful, practice walking in high heels, going up and down stairs, and so on. You can also study the movement of your feet and hands in front of a large mirror.
Step 6. Be confident and act confident
You don't need to be completely confident (for many people, confidence is just a mask), but act as confidently as possible. Tell yourself that you're beautiful, smart, and know what you're doing… because you do! Show confidence in others by not apologizing over and over and doing the things you want (even if it's not popular).
Step 7. Maintain manners
Real women have perfect manners, Take care of your manners when you do daily activities, especially when eating. Never burp and defecate in public. Open the door for others and wait in line for service. Drive carefully. Besides, of course, eat well.
Step 8. Be a smart woman
Don't be stupid just because you can do it. Sometimes, people act stupid to be known. Even though you can be known for your stupidity, surely you don't want to be known as stupid, right? Also, be careful that you don't sound like you know anything. Talk about things you know or be honest if you really don't know the topic. Your honesty will be very welcome!
