Fashion keeps changing, but style is largely individualistic. However, we do love slipping into elegant clothing and show-stopping attires. Whether it’s the traditional, retro style or a dash of beauty, glamour and glitz can be combined with classy old Hollywood style. If you’re someone who likes to dress up all glam as it gives a sneak peek into your fun-filled soul, it’s worth learning to create a wardrobe that reflects a rich life. This dreamy wardrobe will be all that you’ve wished for - famous, luxurious, classy, and replete with looks from the 20s to the 50s. No matter how you dress, remember that your personal style is not forsaken! This style guide has all the steps that you need to follow to style outfits that would perfectly define you, and be in sync with yesteryear. Here’s how you can achieve it.
All That Glitters Looks Stunning
Yes, everything that glitters might not be gold. But for a glam effect, there’s nothing wrong with having a glitter addiction! In fact, glam is instantly brought about by something that sparkles. Think of glitter, beads, pearls, sequins, and jewels, and you’ll know how to infuse an added effect. Basically, the glistening is what imparts the very ethereal feel that will help you attain the highest goal of classy dressing. The shine will also make you reminisce the great successes, and charm of all those who loved dressing that way. If jewels and glittering dresses are not the types you seek, think of fabrics like silk and satin, which can be equally alluring.
Retain Softness, While Exposing Your Wild Side
Comfort is an essential trait while you dress up. Add soft and fluffy materials that would add to the luxuriousness of the look. Basically, velvet, feathers, or furs (like faux, real, and vintage) are great choices. You would surely feel cozy, and also look like a million bucks, draping such wonderful materials! The warmth and comfort are add-ons that help you achieve a certain sense of gravity too. If you wish to add a little more drama, try animal prints. Try getting simple outfits and add a dash of elegance via a few glams, dramatic and avant-garde prints, and also checks.
Choose Dramatic Colors
In terms of glamorous style, there’s nothing like black and white. Monochromes will never be out of fashion, so don’t forget to add these colors to your wardrobe. The best part is that you can wear individual colors or combine them in a contrasting manner. Consult some expert designers who can help you understand the mixing and matching of these shades to appear chic, classy, and clean. At the same time, intelligent use of these colors will also make you look extreme and dramatic. Blacks and whites are stapled pieces and definitely the go-to shades when nothing else seems to work out. If you remember the words of Coco Chanel, 'simplicity is the keynote of elegance'. No wonder black and white outfits are always perfect.
You can think of infusing the passionate shade of red too but in moderation. Red is very often and glamorously used as an accent shade, especially via accessories like bags and shoes or makeup and jewels. So if you wish to strike a bold look or add extra drama, opt for one statement piece in red (like a sequined red jacket, glittery suit, fluffy and fur coat, or red pumps).
Think Of Shapes And Cuts That Complement Tall And Hourglass Figures
Remember to choose pieces that will “fit you like a glove”. Additionally, you can talk to a tailor who’ll help you attain a not really loose and a not too tight look! Instead of a simple and custom-fit piece, it’s better to take this route for a more chic and glamorous feel. For a star-like appearance, keep a clear idea about your curves. Your expert might recommend you these necklines - V-necks and plunging necklines, or halter, slim turtleneck, boat-neck, straight and strapless, cowls, exposed backs, and more. Away from the dresses, you can also choose crop-tops and a pair of high-waist trousers, and accentuate the look with pointed heels.
If nothing else, wear your confidence using a red lip stain. After all, movie stars from Hollywood did wonders in a bold, red, glamorous lipstick - so go for it!
