Whether you would like to admit it or not, we all want to dress as classy as our lifestyle permits. Unfortunately, many find it hard to achieve unless you have a fat pocket or a name to help you live through such, like our favorite Hollywood celebrities.

But is it really? Well, if you look at the dictionary, 'Class' is defined as elegance and sophistication. It doesn't say anything about wealth or social status. In other words, you don't have to be filthy rich to be classy. Here are some tips to help you get started:

1. Posture

Things between you and your new beau have been fantastic. Now, he's invited you to meet his fambam. Since then, you're dreading it because you're afraid you might not pass muster on their standards. Well, don't.

First off, if you’re in a serious relationship, a meet and greet with his family is inevitable. Second of all, if he's made you a serious girlfriend, then he's found some things in you that's worth keeping. And, hopefully, his family is going to like as well.
As expected, the desire to impress and charm the parents is there. But always remember to never let yourself be overshadowed with that desire.
Of course, that doesn't mean that you can't dress to impress. After all, what you're going to wear can form a long-lasting impression. And you'll want to make a positive first impression. That said,

Here are suggested outfits you can wear in meeting the family.
1. Outdoor

In this world we live in, a lot of us are trying our hardest to blend in to the crowd that we sometimes forget that each of us is unique. We are so busy in following style trends that we forget  we can stand out and make a difference.

By having your own personal style,   you'll be able to make a statement in the fashion world that mirrors your confidence, lifestyle and individuality that can open doors of opportunities in the long run.

To help you get started, here are four  steps you can use to  create your own fashion style.

Step # 1. Determine your thing

Asses yourself and be honest. If you're following the styles of your favorite Hollywood celebrity, ask if they spark joy in yourself. If they do, then continue with them but don't forget to add something to make your style personally your own.

Dare to be yourself and wear the clothes that express your uniqueness.

I hate to break this to you but I need to tell you these..

Yep. Winter break will be ending soon and you'll be exchanging "How's your holiday?" with some people. Besides that, you’ll soon be facing your least favorite teachers yet again, or cramming to beat project deadlines. Worse, you’ll be writing essays about your winter break and Christmas vacation.

Don't get me wrong, though. I’m not teasing you or anything.  I know how it feels like to dread  about going back to school. I do. And that’s why I’ve prepared some #OOTD’s to help ease the jitters and hopefully, make you feel excited about going back to school. Here goes:
Dreading Memorable Monday

It's the day of the week we can't stop dreading about and, not to mention, the most dreaded day in the world (My apologies, Monday!). But having fun in the winter and on your first day back to school can just lighten up the mood. If you look at this ensemble, the first thing that will come to mind is probably, “It’s so casual.” And it’s true. But I simply love how the tartan coat adds a blast of color to the plain outfit.
