How to Look Polished
1. Nude Pink Lipstick
Grooming is on top of the list if you ask for ideas on how to look polished. Whether you’re makeup obsessed or a total natural, a cool nude lipstick is a must-have. Not all nudes lipsticks will carry forward for the polished look. Pink nudes are the timeless ones you need to give that amazing classy fashion look with a natural effect. I’m in love with the Dior one!
2. Low Coverage Foundation
You sure need some makeup on for the everyday polished look, but not too much. To get the look, try invisible fluid makeup which will give the even skin tone without that cakey too-much-ness.
3. Plain Pastel Knee Length Coat
For those breezy winter afternoons and spring evenings, a wool coat is a must have. But a clean, plain pastel colored knee length coat can make you look like modern royalty if paired right. And it’s so easy to pull off!
4. A Structured Box Bag
Structured bags have been the stuff of wealthy ladies since forever. They never go out of trend. Fashion is always on the hunt for the next style in structured bags. You can go for a top-handled box bag, a box clutch or even a shoulder-strap box bag. Stock one in a neutral color or a sleek metallic one.
5. Nude Nail Polish
If you wanna know how to look rich and classy, you wanna learn how to pull off neutral shades. Nude nails are a perennial favorite! Perfect for everything from boardrooms to parties, dates to brunches, they can never go wrong! And whatever the occasion may be, keeping things neutral will give any look an instant splash of sophistication. Try nudes and go classy!
6. A Classic Style of Sunglasses
There are a few accessories without which the polished women do not step out. One amongst them is a pair of sunglasses. Well, unless it’s night-time! Go for a timeless style like oval, gradient, aviator or tortoise shell.
7. Minimal Jewelry or Small Pendant Chain
When it comes to accessorizing, sometimes the tiniest options are enough. Your signature look can be just a single diamond pendant or a ruby ring. So pick up some chic styles in minimalist jewelry to add that instantly classy look. You can also go for a pearl collar necklace.
Whether you’re wearing a classic LBD or a pair of crop pants, add a glam pair of pumps to upgrade your look. Pumps never go out of fashion and are the easiest to pair.
9. A Skinny Belt
Yes! A skinny belt is so important to mention if you ask me how to look polished. You can go for a skinny white belt with logo or a neutral colored embellished one, which is my all time favorite too! Pair it with your denims or wear it over a dress to add some structure.
A simple and elegant watch can just be that perfect finishing touch. Wear any dress or pants and add a plain gold watch for that rich and elegant look.
11. Neck Bow
While pussy bow blouses are certainly chic, adding a neck bow to any blouse or shirt can really give you that blue-blood, sophisticated look.
