35 Tips on How to Look Rich and Classy
We all have friends that we know are broke, but look rich and classy. They’re polished and put together at all times. They never have cash for Starbucks, but the vibe they give off is pure elegance and sophistication.
Then we have friends that we know are loaded, but they look so worn out and plain. They have money for the vale, but they spend hours looking for a parking spot 10 blocks away from the destination.
The difference between looking rich and actually being rich is the style and attitude. You don’t need a lot of money to look classy and sophisticated. Small tweaks in your style, attitude, and demeanor can help a lot with that rich and classy vibe. Remember that, in order to be rich, one must project an image of wealth at all times.
It’s (relatively) easy to look rich when you’re wearing a gown. The trick is to stand out without gowns, heels and sparkly things. Finesse comes down to style, manners, the way you talk and walk, and posture. So, dressing better alone will not make you look rich. Work on all angles and cover all the bases. Here you’ll learn how to look rich and classy, how to dress rich on a budget, and some tips on how to act rich as well.
How To Look Rich And Classy
- Always wear a watch. Invest in a quality wristwatch that goes with everything.
- Wear quality sunglasses or carry one over your head. It’s the best fashion accessory you can wear.
- Keep your nails clean and polished.
- You don’t need diamonds to look rich. Wear basic accessories that don’t discolor easily. Keep it simple and elegant as opposed to huge and flashy. You’re the centerpiece, not your accessories.
- Always, always keep your hair clean. You can never hide an oily scalp despite the number of diamonds you’re wearing.
- Always smell nice. You don’t need an expensive perfume. Even a basic body mist can do the job.
- Smile more. Clean and white teeth are essential. They’re important for your overall healthy look.
- Always be shaved, waxed or better yet, lasered.
- Stay away from too much makeup. Try a light foundation on well-moisturized skin. Contouring, wearing too much blush, messy lips, messy eyeliner… They can ruin your wealthy look.
- Work on your posture. Chin up, shoulders pushed back and tummy tucked in. This will strengthen your core as well.
- A little bit of tan adds to your overall look by making the colors pop. Take advantage of that.
How To Dress Rich
- Wear clothes that flatter your body. Make sure they’re always spotless and well-pressed.
- Invest in timeless wardrobe pieces. Avoid spending too much on seasonal items that’ll go out of style in a few months.
- Choose quality fabrics that don’t wrinkle easily. Cotton’s almost always a terrible idea. Silk, satin, and cashmere are quality fabrics. They always look rich and expensive no matter how basic and simple the item is.
- Wear only one statement piece. Whether it’s the shoes or the bag, make one item stand out.
- Try not to layer too many pieces. They’ll cancel each other out. And you’ll end up looking like a mobile thrift shop.
- Too many logos on your clothes do not help.
- Don’t be afraid to wear feminine clothes like skirts when you see fit.
- Wear seamless underwear. A visible bra cup and a panty line can ruin your outfit. And they’re always unflattering to the body.
- Always have tailored trenchcoats in different colors for different seasons. They’re the definition of dressing rich.
- Stay away from platform heels!
- When picking a purse, go for the chain straps that don’t discolor.
How To Act Rich
- Try to walk at a normal speed. Not too slowly as if you have nothing to do. And not too fast as if you’re late for a job interview.
- Talk at moderate speed and speak clearly. Don’t be too loud or too silent. Your voice should give off confidence.
- Don’t carry coins in your pocket.
- Try to always valet park. It’s about making an entrance.
- Always be polite, even when nobody’s looking. Treat everyone with respect and kindness. Arrogance has nothing to do with looking rich and classy.
- Look people in the eye. Be attentive in your conversations using your body language.
- Follow proper table manners. Avoid talking while eating, big bites and chewing loudly.
- Never shout to someone. Especially your waiter! Wait to be noticed or make yourself be seen without yelling. It just looks bad.
- ALWAYS tip your waiter!
- Meeting people isn’t enough. Keep your conversations fun and smart so that people want to stay in your circle.
- Work on your culture. Read a lot. You want to make people see that you’re not shallow and that there are things they can learn from you.
- Have hobbies and interests. We’re not always full of juicy stories and fun things to talk about. Your interests can be great conversation topics when meeting new people, and you’ll have the upper hand as you’ll know more about the topic than the next person.
- Last but not least, build healthy self-confidence.
