We asked that question to Jacinta Richmond, personal stylist and the founder and  director of  Sunshine Coast International Fashion Festival. She says that you don’t need things that cost the earth. A classy look is one of self-respect, appreciation and etiquette (in relation to dress code and manner). Dressing with dignity and moderation.

There is a certain style and sophistication to a classy look. However, classy can still be very modern, classy is not necessarily classic. Here are her tips on how to REALLY look classy:

Jewellery is simply and to a minimum, and should be silver, gold or platinum. 

Your clothing need not be expensive but it does need to cover your body (ie don’t show it all), be very well made and be an excellent fit. Preferably in a fabric that doesn’t crease.

Make-up accentuates the good and is kept to a minimum, with natural highlights or one statement.

Shoes may maketh the man, but they certainly define a woman’s look. Clean, not too high, not scuffed, easy to walk in, neutral or a statement color with a neutral look.

If unsure, stay away from animal print. This is a tough balancing act.

Finally, the icing on the classy look cake is posture. A classy lady can carry off just about any look if she holds herself well. Stand tall, shoulder back, never cross your arms and sit with your legs in the Royal pose, not crossed.
