We all want to achieve that glamour-puss look, every once in a while, think Marilyn Monroe, Brigit Bardot, Grace Kelly and Juliette Moore. It has a lot to do with confidence and attitude but there are also many tricks that you can pull off with your clothes to make doors start opening at your wake.
To go glamorous why not opt for that old-school sense like Sophia Loren, its all long ball gowns in opulent or pretty colours think, wine, poppy and emerald. Opt for thigh split dresses or sweet-heart neck-lines that show-case your sexy legs, collar-bone and neck. If you are young and have a figure to die for then why not opt for a short mini-dress that is sensual and shows off your gorgeous curves. Style with sexy stilettos, drop earrings and for the ultimate in sexy siren chic oft for a fake fur coat or stool.
Perhaps you would prefer to look subtler, a more urban sense of glamour think Audrey Hepburn, that wealthy New York kind of aesthetic. To get this look opt for bateaux neck-lines with pencil styles that fall just below the knee, think the new midi-length. Also pussy-bow ties and turned back-cuffs that give a real elegant, rich professional look that is very sought for the demure city gal. Go for a neutral, timeless colour palette that will never tire think black, blue, white, nude and khaki. Also precious fabrics are also very important, so think rich silk, eco-jersey and even a touch of cashmere. Maxi dresses are also a must-have for that casual sense of urban chic. Style with over-sized sunglasses, gorgeous silk scarves and look-at-me hand-bags.
In order to be truly glamorous you need to know what clothes look good on you. So don’t opt for sexy body-con if you’re a pear shaped lady, as this isn’t going to celebrate your assets. If you want to become a pro at glamour dressing than you will need to know about colour combining, its all about knowing what colours go together and what don’t. So think nude and chocolate, grey and white and black and white. Try not to go for the colour clash concept that it is big right now as this is not particularly flattering and is more trend-led. Its important to feel comfortable, glamorous clothes do not have to be eccentric, its all about good fit and proportion, so why not opt for made-to-measure.
