What makes a woman beautiful? It’s a timeless question, one that society tends to answer with the obvious: a pretty face, thin body type, and curves in all the right places.
Although our society celebrates “beauty” in cliche pin-up women and rail-thin models, the type of beauty that radiates from within is a result of the confidence a woman has in herself. Add in a dash of personal style and true beauty isn’t just evident –it’s celebrated.
We work hard at Fashion Hippo to keep our readers up-to-date with the latest trends, quality finds, and noteworthy deals. But at the heart of it all, we believe our readers are beautiful women, and the products we find are simply extensions of their beauty.
While we all have our personal style, a few key items have been proven to elevate the look of any outfit while adding to a woman’s natural beauty instead of detracting from it. Take a look at some timeless pieces that enhance a look, and add to the essence of what makes a woman beautiful:
Bring the attention back up to your face by keeping the rest of your outfit neutral and playing up some key accessories. A cashmere scarf in a whisper blue hue, like this Club Monaco Heather Infinity Scarf, $98, is a great way to do this. Next, add subtle, statement making sparkle with these classic Bony Levy Diamond Stud Earrings, $495.
Let your natural beauty shine through during a night on the town with a classic wrap dress. But stay on-trend by adding a twist to the traditional wrap style, by introducing a splash blue hues with this Milly Combo Wrap Dress, $390. Keep it classy with your shoes by investing in a nude pair of heels that can easily pair with any outfit, like these L.A.M.B Cahoot Pumps, $295.
Lastly, stay timeless in the spring months by sticking with a classic trench coat, like this Theory ‘Adyna’ Twill Trench Coat, $495. Pair it with chic Melie Bianco Alyssa Bag, $99. We just couldn’t resist embracing the green trend with this stylish, eco-chic, and affordable bag.
