Being chic is probably one of the greatest dreams of today’s modern woman, and the reason for that is simple: no one can resist a lady with such an effortless elegance, attitude and a sense of style. French ladies have always been a synonym for a timelessly chic look, which comes from their nonchalant attitude, commitment to their natural beauty and eternally stylish outfits.

But, we’re all wondering how to be chic in the city, especially if you’re a super busy business lady? Well, here are the golden rules you absolutely must adopt:

Beauty tricks are lady’s best friend

A modern business lady is expected to look phenomenal all day long because when the working hours end, she’ll head for a dinner with her friends or a cocktail with business partners. That’s why she has to be familiar with all those beauty tricks which will save her precious free time that she’ll rather spend on relaxation.

Natural beauty is the foundation of the chic look, so make sure you stick to the rule less is more when it comes to makeup, ensure proper skin care and a plenty of beauty sleep.

A smooth skin all the time

When speaking about smoothness, it especially refers to the skin of your legs and arms which needs to be not just hairless but also glowing and healthy. Smooth legs and arms require a constant care, what can be a huge loss of time for a lady with a million duties. Still, you can consider a laser hair removal as a million dollars worth advice.

There are minimally invasive non-surgical treatments that will make your legs look perfect, remove the pain and discomfort. Now you can conquer the world with those beautiful legs!

Quality makeup and stylized hair

Quality and durable makeup which stays on your face during the whole day and resists external factors is a must. Always opt for subtle rather than bold makeup, and choose products which will at the same time provide great care for your skin, such as hydrating lip balms, nourishing BB creams and mascaras or the skin-friendly eyeshadows.

Besides, stylize your hair in the way it won’t need a constant “repair”. Casual curls, elegant ponytail or sophisticated braid are chic, but “easy to maintain” hairstyle options.

Casually elegant outfits

Being chic in the city also means wearing clothes made of cosy, natural materials which nonchalantly follow your figure and create an effortlessly chic effect. That includes dressing in a relaxed way without picking only voguish and labelled pieces, so you can reach a radiant chic look by wearing a pastel, skinny pants and elegant blouse or a simply tailored dress and a casual blazer.

Comfy shoes are an absolute must-have for a lady who spends her day in the city. So, dare to pair ballet flats with a variety of outfits – they look elegant even with a little black dress, classic jeans and nonchalant suits. Add a sophisticated bag, classy coat and elegant glasses and you are ready to be chic in the city.

Now when you’ve discovered the precious secrets on how to be an utterly chic lady who dazzles the city, dare to dress with a style, show a bit of attitude and keep in mind Coco Chanel’s sentence: “A girl should be two things – classy and fabulous”.
