Who Is An Elegant Lady?
Elegance comes from the Latin word ‘elegantia‘, meaning “taste, propriety, or refinement.” Fashion designer and eternal fashion icon Coco Chanel famously said,
“Elegance is refusal,” meaning it’s best to skip the big jewelry and flashy clothes in favor of simple styles made from luxurious fabrics that one could wear forever — and look great every time.
Elegance also describes the beautiful simplicity of a solution. Elegance is also a refined quality of gracefulness and good taste. It is a quality of neatness and ingenious simplicity in the solution of a problem.
An elegant lady is one who has a natural balance between simplicity, taking care of herself and has intelligence. All these generate that personal poise and special attitude we call elegance. An elegant lady, contrary to popular belief, doesn’t need to have deep pockets to stay elegant.
Elegant ladies know how to live in the simplicity of everyday life, even when not sporting matching clothes and the perfect hairdo.
Elegant ladies accept both themselves and their environment, for when they know and accept themselves, they can conquer anything.
Elegant ladies do not worry much about trends. An elegant lady has enough confidence to wear what she knows suits her best. She knows herself and has faith, based on her values and firm convictions, and no need for emulating what is fashionable or what the outside world tells her she must wear.
There’s something that elegant ladies own which, although you can’t quite put your finger on it, attracts you and compels you to want to be close to them.

An elegant lady does not have any reason to have a bandage dress for some reason like it’s out of fashion. It is too tight, an elegant lady never wears a tight-fitting outfit. It leaves nothing about your body for imagination. An elegant lady never wears an outfit that bares her body and cleavages. Such outfit has a ‘CHEAP‘ signature to it. It lowers the appearance of any lady wearing it, no matter her status in the society. It works against the ethics of elegance.
3. ELEGANT LADIES NEVER WEAR CROP TOPS

Crop tops represent H&M, Top Shop and Forever 21. These are the high producers of crop tops and ladies that wear these crop tops, wear them with leggings, jeans. Nothing very stylish nor luxurious and they tend to show a lot of skins in the not so flattering areas. Yet, there are few exceptions when an elegant lady can wear a crop top. There are some elegant crop tops, an elegant lady can wear. Such crop tops are usually made of fine fabrics and worn with matching high waist skirts or pants, covering the abdomen and exuding nothing but elegance and refinement
4. ELEGANT LADIES NEVER WEAR CARTOON PRINTS OR PRINTS WITH ANIMALS.
Elegant ladies never wear juvenile clothes with cartoon characters such as Mickey Mouse, Hello Kitty, Snoop Dogg, etc on them. Elegant ladies also never wear clothes with animal prints- such as butterflies, flamingos on them. Such clothes are juvenile and do not stress any lady’s elegance in any manner. Kindly stay away from such clothes if you want to stay and look elegant. But if you love these characters on your clothes, you can have them in your pajamas, casual house clothes but not on the clothes you wear out. You would want to maintain elegance always and look ladylike at all times.
5. ELEGANT LADIES NEVER WEAR T-SHIRTS
Elegant ladies never wear T-shirts as they are not appropriate as the day wears, or elegant wears. T-shirts should not get worn to the office, dates, or any social gatherings such as parties. T-shirts are very casual and should be preferably worn as home garments, when you’re moving stuff, digging around your home and generally working. T-shirts come handy in such occasions. But when you want to look elegant and chic, please stay away from T-shirts and Jeans.
6. ELEGANT LADIES NEVER WEAR RIPPED JEANS
Elegant ladies never wear ripped jeans, because they are never sophisticated. Ripped jeans, especially those of them with lot’s of rips, they always look tacky and cheap. Any lady who aspires to look elegant does not have any business wearing ripped jeans, it takes a lot away from such a lady even without her knowing. I understand that a lot of ladies like myself love ripped jeans, but once you’re going for an elegant look, please keep the ripped jeans in your closet.
7. ELEGANT LADIES NEVER WEAR JEAN SHORTS
Jean shorts are quite popular during summers because they’re short, light, and easy to wear. Elegant ladies never wear very blue jean shorts, because they’re very casual and laid back. If you want to wear a pair of jean short in an elegant manner, you should wear white jeans shorts. White jeans shorts look very sophisticated than denim blue shorts. They make you look very expensive and classy, as when compared to the denim blue shorts. When you wear these shorts, wear decent shorts, shorts that are not ripped and butt length.
8. ELEGANT LADIES NEVER WEAR BAGS WITH WEARS AND TEARS
Bags with wears and tears, whose colors are fading and faded, and have lost their original shapes, belong to hell, literally! Such bags do not have any business in your closet as an elegant lady. Elegant ladies never wear such bags, no matter how expensive they cost. They are dead, let them go. A bag for a woman is everything if your bag looks like rags, no matter the designer, it is going to downgrade your overall appearance. Do not wear bags that look shabby, wear bags that are either brand new or well taken care of. When your bags expire, let go of them and move on to the next bag. There are more out there.
9. ELEGANT LADIES NEVER WEAR 90’s FASHION
90’s fashion tends to be in trend for a few years now in fashion and it seems like it’s not going away anytime soon because it appears to be the coolest thing to wear right now. However, there is nothing elegant about wearing 90’s pieces like Bomber Jackets, Bikers’ shorts, Choker necklaces, Tracksuits, etc, because even in the ’90s, the elegant ladies then did not wear these fashion items. They wore more elegant clothes and accessories, so why should you do so now in 2020 as an elegant lady? Remember that a style is in trend doesn’t equate it to being elegant!
10. ELEGANT LADIES NEVER WEAR CLOTHES THAT HAVE WRINKLES/CREASES ON
