Faux fur coats and sequined shoes may have a polished air about them, but there’s more to being glamorous than dosing up on the latest trends. We’ve studied the habits of the world’s most pulled-together women to learn exactly how they do it…
They Embrace Drama
Head-to-toe black has a subtly glamorous feel, but dramatic, statement pieces guarantee to turn heads. Turn to wow factor styles you can team with your everyday wardrobe – caped jackets, sequined skirts – for a look that doesn’t try too hard.
They Know When Less Is More
Statement pieces may have real impact, but that doesn’t mean a subtle look for day-to-day isn’t more polished. Employ all the tricks in your capsule wardrobe – leather jackets, crisp white shirts, tapered trousers – for easy, grown-up glamour.
They Know The Importance Of Good Grooming
There’s no point wearing a killer outfit if your nails are chipped and your hair looks limp. Glamorous women know that a mani and a blow dry (or even just a clean head of hair) makes a real difference to how you look and feel.
They Understand The Power Of Statement Jewellery
There’s nothing like one show-stopping ring or a statement pair of earrings to make a real impact. Ditch the delicate pieces in favour of de la Renta tassel styles or a Gucci cocktail ring for easy glam.
They Know What To Invest In
Truly glamorous women may not shy away from designer pieces, but that doesn’t mean you’ll spot them in the latest Gucci trainers or Vetements hoodie. They know it’s the classics worth investing in – be it a Chanel handbag or Joseph cashmere. Channel their style by avoiding fads and sticking to timeless styles.
They Mix High And Low
Once upon a time a head-to-toe Chanel suit was the mark of glamour, but nowadays mixing elevated pieces with more casual styles confirms your glamorous status. Try evening dresses with sneakers, statement jackets with denim and power shoes with knitwear to get the look.
They Tailor Everything
Every glamorous woman knows the power of a good tailor. From cinched waists to perfect length hemlines – and whether it’s a £500 blazer or £50 blouse – it pays to make sure your clothes sit right.
