Look Classy In Summer With These 5 Items! – School Of Affluence


How to dress classy in spring and summer
when the weather is hot? It’s definitely trickier to style yourself, even though it sounds kind of the opposite. If you have less items to work with, shouldn’t it be easier? Well, this is the thing, no it’s not easier! Because the
materials have to be lighter, the colors have to be all light because otherwise
it gets too hot. So you do have a few things to think about but, I am going to
give you a few tips on how you can look elegant in summer. So let’s start this
video! First things first, I want to share with you my personal favorite that I am
currently extremely obsessed about, that is the fabric silk. Ladies, I am obsessed
with silk! I have so many silk items in my wardrobe. I just keep buying over and
over again, everything I can find. Silk is the more expensive one, it’s usually 100% silk which is very delicate. Here I have one that is 100% silk and this is satin so this is a cheaper version But you know both works.
They look nice but satin tends to get a little bit more wrinkly in my opinion so
I prefer silk. I love tops like this for summer ladies,
Cami tops. I also do love the kind of silk skirts, they’re very trendy right
now and of course the maxi dresses or just any form of long dresses that are
in silk. I do believe that silk makes you look more elegant because the fabric is so delicate. It is very delicate and it is hard to maintain. You
have to send it off to dry clean, you have to be very gentle with how you look
after it because it’s very easy to damage. I think I’ve actually damaged
mine a little bit here. So this is why silk looks more expensive but in my personal opinion, silk is also more cooling so it works really well in summer. I personally recommend investing in like separates so you can mix-and-match with things. So I’m going soon to talk about shorts, you can for
instance do a combination like this and it just works absolutely gorgeous and perfect for summer. I do believe silk is worth spending on ladies. It is one of those very classic
pieces that never really go out of style. So my advice is to invest something in
silk this summer. You won’t regret it because it will elevate your look and
you will look expensive and elegant, even in summer. Second of all, I spoke
about the shorts just now. Everybody must have a pair of white shorts, maybe even a white skirt or a white pair of trousers. I would actually advise to get all three
of them, they are amazing staple pieces that you can mix and match with anything.
It can mix and match it with your silk tops, you can mix and match it with
anything else that you have in your wardrobe that is very summery of any
color and that is the beauty of it! You can even wear it with black and usually
in summer we tend not to wear much black. As you can see from the color scheme
that I have going on here, everything is really in light colors and that’s kind
of the mindset you should have for spring and summer. Do not buy things that are black. If you want to wear something black, then maybe
go for like some form of navy. But just skip the black stuff, we have enough of that in the winter so, no thanks! Oh I forgot to mention the common question
that I get, what about jeans? Can I wear jeans in the summer, like jeans shorts, jeans in general, jean skirts? Skip the jeans, I personally do not think that
jeans is going to help someone look more expensive. I think that if you are
somebody who knows how to style yourself, if you have a good eye for fashion then
you can absolutely wear jeans and look fashionable, classy and you look
expensive. But if you are a beginner, then don’t reach for those jeans because that
is not going to make you, it’s not going to elevate your look ladies. Go for the safe bet like a pair of trousers, go for something that is a little bit more
tailored because that’s definitely going to make you look more expensive.
And speaking of expensive, you know I do have a cheat sheet called, How To Look Expensive. You can download it free of charge! It gives you this perfect overview of what to buy, how to style yourself so that you look expensive. So don’t miss out on that freebie! Okay moving on! Flirtatious, flowy, gorgeous, light and cute
summer dresses. light materials, flowy materials, cute The whole concept of these summer dresses that I’m speaking about is that they can be on the shorter side, they can show your decolletage without your
cleavage being all over the place of course. But the point is that you can
absolutely show more skin! For instance, this dress is kind of small.
You know you are showing a lot of skin in this dress. But it’s not vulgar because it is cute,
it is kind of like neutral, it’s not sexy. And I think that’s what’s important to think about when you’re styling yourself for summer. Focus on femininity And cute summer dresses are very very feminine because it just has this feminine vibe to them, it has this flirtatiousness that I’m talking about, and trust me Now, whenever I’ve spoken to men and I do ask them
about what they like seeing on women, the cute summer dress gets mentioned quite frequently! So I’m not inventing this stuff myself. I’ve actually asked men about this. They do appreciate a cute little summer dress, so go on the invest in one. You can actually find great ones on the budget so you don’t have to spend a lot on finding one. As I was just talking about feminine dresses, I’m gonna
speak a little bit about the wrap dress and I’m actually wearing a wrap dress
right now. It is black so I don’t know how much of it you can see but this is
the exact version of it just in red, so maybe you can see more of it like this.
What I like about this dress is again, the material is so light and flowy. Maybe I can show a video actually when I wore it, how nice it was and I just looked so flirtatious. You feel like a goddess in it and it just kind of shows
off your curves in the right place while still covering you up and the whole
part in the chest area looks just very feminine put together, neutral, cute and
just like really perfect for any occasion. Now, I do love wrap dresses. Diane Von Furstenberg makes amazing wrap dresses, she’s basically known for them. So you can go and spend a little bit there but you can also find some budget
alternatives. The one that I hold here is from Equipment. I think it’s a French kind of mid-range brand. I bought at Net-a-Porter,
a really good choice that’s why I got them both. Because they’re just so feminine, so classic, so kind of simple but you just feel great in them. So lastly, what are we gonna wear on our feet? Wait. Espadrilles! Oh yes! These are definitely my favorites shoes in summer, well for daytime at least. So I have espadrilles and all kinds of colors. These are my absolute favorite because
they’re silk and they’re kind of in my skin color, these are kind of gold and
then what else do I have? Oh, here I have navy. Now let me just put these down,
it’s a bit heavy. I also have espadrilles without heel and that I really recommend investing in as many pair as possible, because they always come very handy.
I believe espadrilles is such a perfect neutral but yet very comfortable shoe to
wear during summer. Number 1, because it doesn’t make you overdressed. For instance, sometimes you can feel a little bit you know overdressed if you wear a pair of heels, like at lunch or a daytime event and so on. But with espadrilles, you can still wear heels without ever feeling like you overdressed. And if you need to be comfortable, then wearing a pair of flat espadrilles is perfect! You don’t have to wear those flip-flops. Flip-flops, we wear around the pool, nowhere else! We don’t go walking in flip-flops,
that is like etiquette no no! We wear proper shoes when we go walking.
Ballerina shoes can be a good idea, flat espadrilles like I said. But definitely, think about investing in these type of shoes and get loads of different colors! Because you will want to match them with all your different outfits and don’t forget to get one in the matching skin color so that you can
definitely match them with any of your outfits. Now that was it for me ladies! Download my free cheat sheet, How To Look Expensive absolutely free! Now I will see you in the next one!

  1. Very good advice for dressing. Obviously I have to fit with my own body shape…..

  2. Women with larger breasts and rolls…..please dont wear wrap dresses or button up dresses. The girls may pop out!!! If you have a larger body and tummy..try a sophisticated print such as houndstooth in cotton. Silk will be a disaster in places with high humidity. Also solid colors in synthetic materials cling to every lump and bump on larger women. Finally, always wear a bra that lifts your breasts and lays smooth under clothes. Good luck ladies!!!

  3. I'm interested in investing in timeless clothing, but I'm a mom of a baby and I'm realizing that this is not going to be practical for most of my clothes right now 😂 white pants and dry clean only 😂

  4. Thanks for a great vid. I love white trousers but as a mother with a 6yo…. I fear I need to wait a few years before I am safe frm grubby hands. 😂😂😂

  5. Love your videos! Just find out via instagram, that yoo are 50% Estonia 🇪🇪! Greetings 🙂 Tervitused Eestist! Mina olen ka eestlane ja on meeldiv ja inspireeriv Sinu videosid vaadata!

  6. Please do a video about bags!What bags should we invest in?What bags do you own?How important is to have a luxury designer bag?

  7. Please Stop esthetic surgery on your face.
    You don’t need that.
    Stay natural, you are very nice naturally.

  8. I have such a difficult time finding these outfits. HELP lol I must not be shopping in the right places. These are exactly the types of clothes I look for but can't seem to find

  9. Beautiful Anna. Must let you know that a variety of SILK is silk SATIN. The word SATIN does not automatically mean SYNTHETIC. Thanks.

  10. It's important to look good – I agree! Now, how about general knowledge, overall intelligence and foreign languages? I often find that successful people are actually more interested in what you are as a person (and an industry professional) than how you look like – there's thousands of pretty, dumb girls.
    It's so easy to find yourself in a conversation about wine while all you have to add is "I like tempranillo"… My favorite topics are stock market and geography, mastering a foreign language (that's not English) also helps when you want to make your personality a little classier.
    What are your tips on being interesting and how do you maintain your general knowledge for conversations with high society people?

  11. anna can u please give advice if people who r chubby want to groom and present themselves? is it still possible to live a lifestyle similar to yours if we dont have a body like a model? what is the truth about people who are chubby and cant lose weight because of a medical condition?

  12. Thank you for the advice! What about a more casual look? Do you always alternate between dresses and white bottoms? If it’s a bit chilly do you wear covers or carry blazers?

  13. Satin is just a weave, not a fiber. Satin can be silk or some type of synthetic. It could also be other types of natural fibers.

  14. Please make a winter one! It’s so hard to find something sexy and classy when it’s cold! It’s winter here in Australia so I will appreciate!

  15. These dresses that show a lot of skin are great for my (future) hubby & I,
    I am hoping you can share many more modest fashion options

  16. Hi gorgeous remember you promised us a video on how you attracted your partner using the law of attraction? I’m sure a lot of us are super interested. Thank you

  17. Not everyone can use a wrap-around dress. They are very beautiful and sex. Women with very big bottom curves can not wear them. No matter how thin I been, I have very big size curves and they look not classic in the wrap-around dress. Too sexy nice for a stay home date.

  18. Hi Anna, I'd like you to make a video about what to drink during a lunch or dinner. I guess the main choice is wine but I don't like having alcohol in my body, I used to drink soda/soft drinks but that ain't good for health [my doctor hates it] and also doesn't look affluent. Among juices and sparkling water what else can I have?

  19. Silk is pretty…and I'm in shape…but I live in Houston…soooo humid. Doesn't silk show sweat so easily?

  20. so the first slinky silk dress, looks like what you wear at night time to bed im sorry I can't go out in lingerie looking clothes.

    but I agree, I love silk too!

  21. Are jeans classy? Should we wear jeans to be more elegant? Which jeans Should we prefer? Could you make a video abaut jeans, we Wonder it

  22. I actually never take any of my silk items to the dry cleaners. What I do is hand wash in cold water using a gentle soap and then let the item(s) air dry.

  23. It's really hard to be elegant when you live in a hot place. I'm from southern europe and summer is a huge struggle for me. I start my day by going to work in elegant and classy clothes, hair and makeup in fleek and I return home like a washed up trash can 😢

  24. Any ideas for women who have to work. Men may like cute feminine summer dresses and white shorts may be cooling and espadrilles are cute, but none of those are acceptable choices for most work places.

  25. Honestly really appreciate you posting these type of videos. Im 19 and intern at a firm with very affluent people and often times get invited to lunches/dinners with my coworkers and bosses and never know how to act or dress around them. Your videos have helped me so much, to the point where I just got promised a job after graduation because they liked my drive and personality and the fact that I fit in well with the others.

  26. Ditched the black! And jeans!
    Wore a white dress to a political event and all eyes were on me! Thank you!!

  27. Have you ever considered doing “reviews” of other fashion youtubers? Toni Sevdalis just came out with a video about looking like an off-duty model and it’s soooo bad! She thinks she’s classy but … she’s just not lol and she’s giving really bad advice. Actually, maybe we should let her give bad advice so us classy gals look even better 😆

  28. Could you do a video on looking classy with different body types (like kibbe body types)? Or for heavier ladies, I want to look classy but I don’t want to wait until I’ve lost the weight as it will take time

  29. Can you tell is the brand of the Espadrilles shown in the video? I am trying to purchase, but there are so many brands. Thank you in advance.

  30. Thank you so much for this video, I’ll be in Italy this summer and will be bringing white jumpsuits and floral outfits 🤗

  31. Hi Anna, first off, I love your channel! Thanks for all you do! I’d like to add something to clarify for you regarding fabric. I work in fashion as a designer, so I hope you don’t mind that I share this with you!

    The drapey fabric you call out as silk in this video and others is silk charmeuse. A lot of people think silk is just the lightweight fabric – the kind you are pointing out here.

    Silk is the fiber and charmeuse is the construction. You can also have silk satin or silk sateen, or silk crepe de chine ( which is a little heavier and a bit crinkly when you look very close). Also there are fabrics made of silk which are more rough because of the construction which can look similar to linen. Or you can have polyester charmeuse/satin/sateen as well. Just a few examples.

    Anyway, just wanted to share that with you. 🙂 I love what you do here. You are spot on about style and elegance… definitely something I wish was around 10 years ago when I was still working to develop my personal style into what it is today!

    Have a great day!

  32. I love you channel because even though I'm a student and I sometimes do like chilling in my pijamas at home I like having the option of looking classy if that's what I'm going for.

  33. Thanks a lot for the advice! I wore a silk top and white pants recently at a barbeque and got a ton of compliments! I am starting graduate school in London in a few months and would love to hear your opinion on elegant dressing style for grad school students.

  34. The problem with wearing white pants/skirts is that I'd be too afraid of dirtying them that I might not sit down at all

  35. What happened to covering up? I was told that jackets are needed for the clothing in your video.

  36. love your choice on what to wear on your feet! also love Espadrilles and ballet flats. I'm not a sandal fan, and is my main reason of summer trend advise don't like sandals, thanks! I wasn't lost

  37. Oh my god. I wore a silk scarf in the summer. I ended up with a heat rash that took weeks to clear!

  38. Espadrilles are wonderful and classy! I've worn them for years. Please let us know what brand these are. Love them!!!!

  39. Where are the shoes from, it is so hard to find good espadrilles??? I love how the dress looks on you especially romantic with the sleeves and v neck.

  40. Thank you for addressing the footwear! I have very sensitive feet so what kind of shoes would you recommend?

  41. Can someone recommend stores that offer high quality clothes? I want to buy something that's going to last a while and not get thrown out in a year

  42. Anna, there was a "Black Mule" with mid heels, and a decorative buckle in the display picture. I was looking forward to seeing / hearing you talk about it. Please let me know if it's available. Thanks.

  43. Loved this video!
    I would love to see a video for mothers, to know how to dress elegant but at the same time casual, we go for our children to school, take them to the park or their daily activities, or maybe work in a place where we should dress casually, as teachers in a school. I would like to have ideas to wear casual but elegant and feminine. Thank you!
