Dear ladies, how many of you have ever wondered how to be elegant and how to behave accordingly? Let’s see how with simple fashion rules to follow you can achieve a truly elegant style.
You can feel like wearing something sexy, but it has to be appropriate and not showing too much. E.g. if you want to wear a nice top with a décolleté, prefer wearing it with some pants or long skirts below.
Carefully pairing skin-tight clothes. If you want to wear a tight-fitting skirt, choose a nice loose blouse on top. Remember, if you want to wear sexy clothes, choose either the upper body or the lower body, never both or it can convey vulgarity.
The dress is skin-tight, but covers the shoulders, the arms, probably until the knees and is black; giving an interesting conservative / sexy balance.
Sheer clothes can be really elegant to wear, but you have to balance it carefully in order to not appear vulgar and bold. Go for clothes that mix transparency with thick fabrics covering your strategic points.
Taylor Swift in a mild colour sheer top with a bow button up has a very feminine romantic look.

An elegant lady knows how to choose the right pattern for her clothes, but it should be one pattern, not several varieties which would create a visual conflict. If you wear a printed skirt, wear something plain on top, for example. Choose one type of pattern for each outfit. And avoid those of poor taste: i.e. no leopard prints, no fluorescent or shiny colours, no glitter.
