Served with with a table spoon of sarcasm, a pinch of wit and a large dose of style.”

First thing’s first – you need to get the basics down pat. Looking posh is more than your choice of clothing – your hair and makeup also add to the aura of “classy chic” that you’re creating.

After all, fashion icons like Audrey Hepburn, Diana Ross, and Jackie O looked great because they were very well-groomed.

In other words, that messy scrunchie bun that seems to live on the top of your head most days simply won’t do.

Take it down a notch (literally) but incorporating this sleek, low-back bun into your routine. And if you can’t even be bothered to do that, then here’s a quick, time-saving trick:

Use a clear brow gel to sleek down your hair before tucking the strands behind your ears.

Another tip: you’ll look more sophisticated if you stick to classic nail shapes and colors, such as a French manicure.

Fashion trends come and go (bellbottoms, acid-wash jeans, and lumberjack grunge flannel, anyone?), but the classics never go out of style.

However, before you hit the high street to buy an outfit to put together, raid your closet first to see what you already own.

You might be surprised at just how much of a classic chic-geek you already are!

Here are the pieces every woman should have in her wardrobe collection:

  • A classic button-down shirt (slightly oversized so you can tuck it in, roll up the sleeves, or pop the collar – little details like this count)
  • Plain black colors and neutrals should be the mainstay, as they are super easy to combine together

Here are some additional fashion tips and tricks to keep in mind when putting your effortlessly elegant look together:

  • Keep breezy fabrics like linen on hand – they look beautiful and make you feel like you’re on a summer holiday
  • Blazers can change up any outfit you put together (but it looks more expensive when worn over the shoulder)
  • Nix the head-to-toe tight clothing – it cheapens the expensive look you’re aiming for
  • Accessorize with bold watch to complete the look
