The 10 Things Polished Women Always Do

The Luxury Fabric Elegant Women Always Wear
Polished women get noticed for all the right reasons. They have mastered the art of putting themselves together in a way that sets them apart from everybody else. And it has nothing to do with expensive clothes, impossible-to-maintain beauty regimes or a glam squad. 

When we think of “polished women” names such as Olivia Palermo, Amal Clooney, Kate Middleton, and of course, Audrey Hepburn spring to mind. What is it about women of this nature that appeals to us so much?

Is it their wonderful wardrobes? For sure. Is it their international celebrity? Maybe. But it’s their seemingly unfailing devotion to looking perfectly pulled together no matter the occasion that really speaks to the perfectionist in all of us.

Two questions spring to mind: WHY do women such as these choose to present themselves this way, and HOW do they do it?

The “why” part is easy – polished women realise the rarity in their efforts to look polished in the first place! There is no better way to elevate above the masses than by paying attention to details and presenting yourself in a thoughtful and classy way.

People respect and respond well to those that take this sort of care in their appearance because it takes discipline and practice. In the simplest sense, you are demonstrating that you aren’t one of the basic ones.

The “how” part to becoming a polished woman, as mentioned, is generally a learned experience – but it’s possible to achieve when you follow a few age-old guidelines.

These laws are essential skills of polished women through the ages, and they can be followed by anyone, no matter your budget, your age, or your status.

Keep reading to learn the 10 things polished women always do, and start incorporating these laws into your life starting today!

#1 – Take good care of your hands

One of the first things people notice about us are our hands. Handshakes, meetings, when we point to a menu, our hands are front and centre communicating much about us without us even realising. Dry skin, sun damage, unruly nails and rough patches will quickly detract from your efforts to look classy and polished.

Exfoliate, moisturise and groom your hands as part of a regular beauty regime. Sun spots and other damage ages us instantly, so daily application of SPF50 to the backs of our hands is just as important as applying sunscreen to our face.
