with the daily worry of just finding something clean and ironed to wear, we don’t really get a chance to carefully put together something that’s going to make us look elegant and polished. So here’s the end to your worries
- a few very simple things you can do to help you look more sophisticated! (And no, we don’t mean buying those super-fancy gowns - these are tips that work for your everyday wear!
1. Tuck In The Shirt
A simple and totally foolproof way to look more sophisticated is to tuck in your perfectly ironed shirt. Sure, leaving it out might feel more comfortable and cool, but it doesn’t help when you’re trying to make an impression. Pair your shirt with well-fitted pants and a show-stopping pair of pumps!

2. Colour-Code With Care
Dark colours are some our favourites too, but seriously, lighter shades just have a way of making you look more put-together. Especially if they are well-maintained! And this doesn’t mean you’ll have to wear something boring - just look at this pale blue jumpsuit, and the structured blazer to match it! It’s the perfect way to bring up your fashion game as well.

3. The Beauty Of Minimalism
Don’t layer up all of your best pieces at once! Your look will just go all haywire and not make too much sense. Decide on a key article of clothing and plan your outfit around it, even if it’s with basics. Knowing how to style your staples is a skill that will forever come in handy!

4. Balance Your Accessories
Sure, evenly distributing one colour in all of your accessories looks great. But what also helps is not looking TOO matchy-matchy. Don’t worry about your shoes being the same shade as your bag. As long as there is some sort of rhythm to the tones, the balance will remain perfect!

5. The Lingerie And It’s Purpose
Beautiful-looking lingerie isn’t all that you need! The important thing is to choose the right kind
for your outfit. If you’re wearing a fitted jersey dress, lace lingerie just won’t do! You need something that let the pattern show through and looks completely seamless. Similarly a T-shirt bra isn’t called by that name for nothing - use those for under T-shirts. And when you’re wearing something with a deep back, a convertor strap will come in very handy! This can make or break the deal, girls, so make sure you keep a check on this
