How to Achieve That Classic, Glamorous Style

When you think of classic, stylish fashion icons, who’s the first person you think of?  Most likely it’s Sophia Loren or Audrey Hepburn.   Audrey Hepburn gave us that classic, elegant look, and Sophia Loren offered up all that with a little added glamour and sex appeal.

No matter how old you are or what season it is, a classic, luxurious sense of style is always in fashion.  If you want to modernize a classic look, take a peek at the Fall 2010 collections from Donna Karan, Calvin Klein, and Moschino.  These designers included pieces that can be worn now and for many more seasons to come. For a more affordable, stylish take on the timeless trend try an  Emilio & Coco dress. Or select from the many designers offered by Shop It To Me and search Sale Spot for LBD’s galore!

A classic, luxurious sense of style is also about sticking to pieces that are made of quality materials and can stand the test of time.  It’s not about chasing every single fashion trend.  In the words of Gianni Versace:

“Don’t be into trends.  Don’t make fashion own you, but you decide what you are, what you want to express by the way you dress and the way you live.”

Always remember that class, glamour, and luxury is what YOU make of it.  Now go and be your fabulous self!
