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.

Tip 5

 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.

Amazing shopping experience!

My daughter and I just got back from an fabulous shopping tour with Linda. The experience was fabulous from start to finish. Linda communicated with me via email and WhatsApp and she asked lots of questions about both me and my daughter’s style and our shopping needs and wants. She went above and beyond to help make the experience amazing. She took us to stores where she had hand picked items for both of us. Shopping in Paris can be overwhelming especially with a picky teen, but Linda really delivered. She also gave us great shopping recommendations for the rest of our day. Highly recommend her services!!!!

Our afternoon with Linda was absolutely fantastic, and one we’ll never forget! We all (daughters 11, 14, and myself) found special items we are so excited about, and never would’ve found the fantastic clothes or brands she pointed out to us if it weren’t for her. She gave us advice on what worked and what didn’t, helped bridge the language barrier, and made 3 hours fly by. I would (hopefully will!) do it again in a heartbeat!!

Linda hosted a Fashionista Experience for me, my 13YO and our 22YO friend. She has the best personality and style ideas. Her kindness and professionalism with my family and with store personnel was so very impressive as was her rapport with the saleswomen in the stores. Of our 10 days in Paris, this was one of our favorite outings and so different than anything else we did. No pressure to buy and such an in-depth knowledge of the area. When we ran out of time, she walked us by all the other places she didn't want us to miss. What a gem. Book her while you can.

My favorite part was our guide, Linda! she was so kind and professional. She worked so well with both my granddaughters. They thought she was terrific. She understood their existing styles and preferences but then added tips and encouragement to update their current looks. Going shopping with Linda was my granddaughter's favorite part of the trip!
