Looking classy is not something that is boring or that cannot be experimented; as many of us misunderstand it to be. One can experiment and be stylish and yet look classy.

Classy clothes do not necessarily have to cost you a fortune. They do not have to be necessarily big brands. Just keep them pristine. They can be local store purchase that is good in quality and fit. Here, the term pristine means keep them crisp. Keep them clean and free of any stains and odour. Well pressed – well ironed. Maybe steam them before you wear them. Check for the collars, hem, and placket before you wear it. If it is needed a quick steam can be considered. It will also help you get rid of the odour, in case of repeat wear.

- Limit Skin Show
It is not about being orthodox or traditional but about being sensible. Don’t show too much skin, everywhere. The appropriateness of the occasion and the people involved for the occasion should be well considered before the skin show is decided. Also, take into consideration what is your body shape and figure type, will the skin show be a sight to sore eyes or will it be an eye sore? It is always a good idea to play within the boundaries.

Go for a light base, eyeliner, kajal, medium eye shadow (if you wish), lip colour and maybe blush. This should suffice your look.

Have a few pieces but quality pieces. That’s the bottom line for looking classy. Make sure your bag, shoes, neckpiece, watch and whatever other things you wear should be of good quality. Avoid the temptation of having more numbers and for that compromise on the quality. Buy the best that you can afford to buy. Quality has no substitute. The finesse and the long-lasting impact of any quality piece are what add to your class.
