Some girls have all luck. Not matter where they are or the time of day, somehow they always look fantastic. And it’s not about the outfit per se—often it’s the trimmings that make her look like a million bucks. Here, a few style rules to remember on quickly taking your look from laid-back to luxe. That way, you always look perfectly polished as well.
Rule #1: You Can’t Go Wrong With Nude Nails
Sooner or later your nail polish will chip, but when it’s nude it’s not as noticeable.

Rule #2: Three Words—Lips and Lashes
Bambi lashes paired with a bright red pout is always appropriate, day or night.
Rule #3: Go For the Gold
Dainty earrings worn with a bold watch; just enough glitz, but not over the top.
Rule #4: Give Good Face (And Hair)
Refresh your strands with a nourishing leave-in conditioner, and de-puff tired eyes with an intense eye cream.
Rule #5: Slim It Down
Backfat, muffin top, or paunchy tummy? No problem. Smooth it all out with a body shaper.

Rule #6: Always, Always, Always Accessorize
Never forget to toss on a scarf, keep your necessities in a chic tote, and step lively in a sexy pair of pumps.
