Every lady wants to be thought of as timeless; if not now, then later in life. It’s not something that just happens overnight. Just like any other style, look, or appearance, it takes time. You have to truly understand what timeless means, and how to stay classically stunning at any age. It goes without saying, confidence is always key. Buy beyond that, here are some of our favorite timeless lifestyle tips.
Know what works.
Not everything works on everyone. You have to accept that. Maybe gold just doesn’t quite gel with your skin tone, and that’s totally ok. There will be some looks that you just can’t pull off. Accept that. It’s not about being able to rock every last trending piece. Instead, focus on rocking every piece in your wardrobe.
Don't constantly fluctuate with trends.
Don’t get so caught up in People Stylewatch that you forget who you are. Instead of being a trend follower, be a trend setter. Timeless is actually a trend in itself, but it's one that lasts forever.
Be ok saying, "This is me."
Don’t let people question your style. Let’s say you hire a personal stylist that tries to completely transform your look. At first, the idea of it sounded acceptable, but now you’re looking in the mirror, feeling like an awkward preteen. Don’t let people change you or your look. In your heart, you know what style makes you the most comfortable and confident. Always gravitate towards this arena.
Don't overdo it.
Timeless quickly turns into tacky when you start overloading your look. Let’s put it this way. You don’t need to sport earrings, a necklace, bracelets, rings, and hair jewels all at once. Doing so totally diminishes the value and exquisite nature of each piece. Instead, focus on one statement jewel, and keep the others simple, or even absent.
Learn how to effectively transition from day to night.
Let’s say you splurge on a gorgeous diamond statement ring. Well, more power to you. But, understand that this is a luxury piece, and might not be an appropriate accent to wear during hot yoga. Make sure each piece has its place. Look at everything in your wardrobe as occasional wear. Your job is simply to find the the right “occasion.”
Let’s highlight some style specifics.
Here are our go to classic beauty tips.
Lip color makes a woman.
It doesn’t always have to be red. If red doesn’t work on you, don’t commit to this look. Not only will it look peculiar, but you’ll feel awkward and uncomfortable in your own skin. Try a pink or a peach to start, and once you find your shade, introduce that color to your everyday style.
There’s something to be said about tailored clothing.
Invest in pieces that highlight your feminine physique. If something doesn’t lay right, either don’t buy it or get it fitted to your shape. For just a little extra splurge, your entire wardrobe can fit like a glove. Not only will you look better, but you'll feel better. That creates confidence, which automatically.
Steer clear of anything that resembles fake or artificial.
Don’t soak in the spray tanning booth. Don’t slap on fake claws. Be you, 100% you. That is what timeless is. Some of our favorite style icons knew how to stay true to themselves, and not take too many measures to transform into someone else.
