There’s nothing classier than a fit and flare little white dress. I felt like Jackie Kennedy in this elegant outfit, with everything from the white dress to the blue coat and floral bag. This white dress from Kim and Proper really should be a staple in any classy woman’s closet. The shape makes it universally flattering, with a fitted waist and flared skirt. I love the simplicity and effortless elegance of this dress. It is also super comfortable as it’s made from a stretch material. Read on for all tips on how to look classy!

How to Look Classy Styling Tips

  • Asides from a classic little white dress, pay attention to the overall color scheme of the outfit. Pastels and soft colors always invoke a classy vibe, so I paired the dress with a light blue wool coat. Blue and white always make for a winning color combination.

  • When in doubt, add a structured coat. A coat adds an element of sophistication to the outfit, just make sure it’s structured and in a nice material like wool.

  • Choose feminine accessories, like this flower purse and delicate floral headband I’m wearing. I’m actually quite obsessed with this bag I found in Hong Kong. It’s so pretty and the flower petals look pretty real from far away. Plus, it was under $100! I would call that a steal.

To complete my outfit, I added a pop of color with lace-up red suede heels. Even though the heels are red, they are still a feminine color and classic shape. I also went with a floral necklace and delicate white marble bracelet. Finally, I chose gold cluster earrings that match the necklace for an extra touch of luxe.
