How To Look like a Sophisticated Parisian: 8 tips that will blow your mind

How to Look Sophisticated

Looking classy has nothing to do with the price of your clothes or the material, it has everything to do with the way you pair your outfits, your confidence level, your style, and attitude, what are you matching, and what are you leaving out.

If you’re wondering how to look elegant and sophisticated, look no further, I’m here to spill all the secrets of the classy Fashion game. It’s all about projecting a wealthy vibe at all times.

Sophisticated Outfits

Tip 1:

 Always Wear Quality SunShades/ Glasses

Quality sunshades or glasses are no longer hard to find. You don’t have to save to buy Gucci or Chanel when there are many quality brands out there. Look for an upcoming sophisticated brand to buy your sun shades or normal glasses from.

Never buy sunglasses from a dollar store if you want to look classy.

Tip 2

Manicured Nails

The way your nails look says a lot about you! You can always manicure your nails at home, make sure to keep them polished in using neutral colors.

Tip 3

Quality Accessories

You don’t need diamonds and gold to look classy. Invest in quality jewelry that won’t break the bank but won’t fade easily. The trick is to buy from small businesses or brands, they give you quality for less because they’re still growing.

Don’t over-accessorize, keep it simple yet noticeable, that’s how to look classy and elegant.

Tip 4

Wear Quality Fabrics

Next time you go shopping, go for clothes made of satin, silk, chiffon, they always look classy no matter how simple the style. Especially silk and satin, when paired with heels you will look like you’re straight out of a castle.

 Always wear only one Statement Piece

Make something stand out, always wear something that speaks louder than the rest of your clothes, it could be your bag, or shoes, or bangles.

Tip 6

Never have a messy hair

Your hair says a lot about you. A well-groomed hair speaks classy and elegant. Wear your hair in a clean bun or leave it flowing just make sure it’s clean and smooth. Your hair is part of your outfit.

Tip 7

Always Smell Nice

The way you smell is also part of your outfit. Regardless of how stunning you look, a nice scent will always grab the attention of people faster. Classy people always smell absolutely nice. Invest in classic perfumes!

 Tip 8

Don’t Wear Too Much Makeup

Keep it simple, that’s how to stay classy and elegant. A classic red lipstick and eyeliner can be more than enough sometimes.

Embrace Classic Fashion Styles

Classic pieces never go out of style! Instead of trendy clothes, that you will find on literally everyone in your city, go for classic, timeless pieces. You can style them in numerous ways, I’m talking about a classic plain pants, a black dress, blazers with classic cuts, classic shoes and more.

Tip 10

Invest in Stylish Accessories

Chanel bags or purses, sophisticated sunglasses, a combination of black and gold chains, statement earrings, and more are all stylish accessories you can invest in. It doesn’t have to be diamond, go for jewelry that doesn’t fade easily, you can go for sunglasses from upcoming brands that give quality for less.

Wear Tailored Clothing

You cannot go wrong with tailored clothing, it’s sophisticated and sewn to your perfect body fit and they’re also unique.

You can’t find them everywhere so they give you this expensive one-of-a-kind look.

"Often, when I go out with the intention of buying new clothes, I end up wandering around for hours and not finding anything I really love. Because my time in Paris was limited, I wanted to make the best use of what little opportunity I had for shopping. Enter Linda, who-in just 3 hours-helped me select a range of gorgeous new clothes and accessories, I love absolutely everything I bought. My time with her was an absolute joy: she is very relaxed and easy to chat with, and she really listens to your opinions and steers you towards the things you will like. If only all shopping was this easy!"

I'll definitely be back for more!

After wearing one of my new outfits back in London. several people have commented that I had a 'French chic look going on! It was the look I'd asked Linda for, so it seems to be working! Highly recommended - and I'll definitely be back for more!"
Great shopping experience!

"We had such a productive two hours with Linda! My daughter is very petite for her age (14 years old, almost 5'2" and 90 lbs). It is hard for her to find clothes in styles popular in her age group and I was worried that our Paris shopping would be frustrating. I am so glad we booked Linda! We sent her some samples of styles my daughter liked as well as the types of items we were interested in purchasing. Linda mapped out stores and actual items in advance. And she was good at identifying potential options on the fly too. In two hours we got a dress, two pairs of jeans, some slides and two tops that my daughter loves! In every store Linda would quickly ask the salespeople for the smallest sizes and then my daughter would quickly make a call on what she wanted to try. Very efficient! Linda comes from a family in the fashion business and earlier in the day had helped a bride from the U.S. select her couture wedding gown. She is versatile for sure! Thank you Linda for this great highlight of our trip to Paris!"
Amazing Personal Shopping Experience in Paris

"My 13 year old daughter and I had a wonderful morning with Linda. We walked around the Marais area and Linda introduced us to many shops and boutiques. Linda quickly understood what my daughter style is and what she prefers and offered her different and unique items at every store. My daughter is typically not an easy shopper :) but Linda was able to find her multiple beautiful items that she loved and we purchased (all within the budget we pre-defined before starting). We even got one item for me (although this was not our focus this time ...). Linda also helped us to quickly receive the tax refund forms at the different stores we visited. Overall it was an amazing experience which my daughter really enjoyed and marked as one of the highlights of our Paris visit."

"Linda took my daughter and I and another friend and her daughter shopping and it was just perfect. She chose ideal spots for the teenagers and great spots for myself and my friend (we are in our early 50s). She's kind, patient, and thoughtful and really tries to make sure everyone finds what they need/ I also loved that she wasn't pushy with us buying things. She made me feel very comfortable to say you know this is not right for me. I love the shoes I got on our trip and the jeans and my daughter had the best time. This is a really special experience. My only suggestion would be that if you are shopping for teens and grownups to try to add more time because 2 hours was not enough for us! It's a great experience -- hope you enjoy it too!"
