Essential tips to stay sophisticated in a tacky world

 
 
 

How often are you impressed by individuals whose physical appearance and personal sense of style stand out for all the good reasons?

I am not talking about people spotted at a high profile social event or at a fashion show, but rather those that we see in ordinary daily circumstances.

Having always worked in the fashion industry, I will admit that my standards are rather high- so in my case I would have to go with "rarely".

In a world where there is more access to information and aesthetic inspiration than ever before, why is there such a "laisser aller"? 

This particular point, I believe, is at the root of the matter. 

Too much information means that our focus needs not only to be selective but also inquisitive.

In our fast paced environment, time is of the essence and we tend to simplify our lives by relying on familiar sources that are easy to access.

Before we know it, our reflexes and habits are set.

Our aesthetic preferences become an extension of what is already out there, no questions asked.

As subjective as it can be, the concept of sophistication does not seem to be a primary reference point anymore.

Which brings us back to the title of this post.

In spite of all this confusion and aesthetic brouhaha, how can one stay sophisticated?

1- Be selective : from the sources of information you follow to the way you shop

2- Expand your horizons : shake your routine and engage into more cultural events that will inspire you differently

3- Understand who you are : dress for your body shape, in doubt keep things simple

4- Invest in quality rather than quantity

5- Be aware of trends but don’t follow them unless they resonate with you
