Are you a classy girl? Do you like the finer things in life? Do you have a hard time finding the right ensemble to look both elegant and classy? Whether it be undergarments or evening wear or anything in between, classy girls should always feel good about what they’re wearing. To ensure you stay classy, the experts at Glamour Boutique have put together a list of some of our best items for all of our classy crossdressers out there. Our guide includes your underwear, how much skin you want to show, plus choosing the right dresses and shoes to complement your desired look.
Start With Your Underwear
While a nice bra and panties are usually pretty easy to find, let’s go a little deeper and find the perfect ultimate classy undergarment – the corset. Once you put on a corset, you will not only get a more feminine silhouette, but you will also feel fabulously feminine. When it comes to choosing the right color, you can never go wrong with black as it is an extremely elegant color to have here. Try to stay away from corsets with a lot of designs on them as it takes away from the elegance and goes more toward the flashy.
If it’s your first time in a corset, it is best to go with a shorter waist cincher like the Purple Steel Boned Underbust Corset Waist Cincher. It will give you a great shape and not be too much to handle for a beginner. A great alternative a satin corset is the Extra Strong Cotton Cincher. This corset is not only elegant but because it is cotton, it is cooler and stronger than your satin and leather corsets.
If you’re a corset pro, try our PK-1 Long Torso Full Corset. This corset goes further up and has cups for your breasts and in black it looks so elegant and beautiful. Just remember, this is not a corset suited for someone who has never worn one before.
We believe once you have on a corset and see how amazing it can look, you will be hooked.
Think About How Much Skin You Want to Show Off
In a general sense, leaving more to the imagination is a classier approach, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be sexy and an elegant crossdresser. Why not show some cleavage?
The Black Mesh Insert Teddy, for example, gives you good coverage with its long sleeves but its mesh insert offers you the chance to sex things up and show off just enough cleavage to turn some heads. The Fuchsia Cowl Neck Top is a fun top that has a longer torso and ruffled neckline. This accomplishes good coverage while offering a little peak with its cowl top. This is a great option for girls that like wearing breast forms that are a little bustier.
Either of these tops will go great with a Pencil Skirt. A pencil skirt is a great classy option as it is timeless and lands right at the knee. The pencil skirt works with so many different tops and is great for day or night wear which makes this a must have for any classy girls wardrobe.
Have A Couple of Staple Dresses You Know Are Classy
We always say that it’s best to have some staple items in your femme closet that way you always have some go-to fashions for just about any occasion. So having some staple classy dresses are a no brainer. A Cold Shoulder Dress is a great way to go here. Cold Shoulder Dresses are one of the most popular fashions for a night out or a dinner party and should be in your closet. A Peplum Dress is a classy fashion and for a crossdresser will also help with shaping around the hips and midsection due to its peplum fabric strip. Speaking of some shaping help, the Tailored Burgundy Dress offers some great shaping help with its empire waist. It helps to create the illusion of hips while the flared skirt can help hide a bit of that tummy. If you are having trouble deciding which dresses you see are considered classy staples, we suggest asking a female friend if that is something you are able to do. If not, you can always contact Glamour Boutique and we can help set you on the right path. We do know that once you find those classy go-to dresses, you will feel more confident that your overall style is more elegant.
It’s Also About the Shoes
Of course it is! Shoes can make or break an outfit. Be careful not to choose a super classy outfit and then have it all fall apart by not having the right pair of shoes to go with it. Styles of shoes to stay away from would be huge platform heels or boots that go up past your knee or crazy skyscraper heels as they definitely do not match up with your classy style. Instead, have a few pairs of shoes on hand to keep you classy for just about any occasion. If you’re having a casual day out and about, the Ballet Flat is a great choice for everyday comfortable wear. When it’s time to go out for the night or attend a fancy dinner, a great shoe is the D’Orsay Pump with Five Inch Heel. What we love about this shoe is that it gives the effect of lengthening the leg by showing more of the foot with its cutaway design. Slip these beauties on with an elegant cocktail dress and you will be the belle of the ball.
If you are one of those lucky girls who can go to work en femme, a great work shoe that is both comfortable and functional, all while staying classy is the Kitten Heel Mary Jane Pump. This is also a great starter shoe for crossdressers as its two-inch block heel can ease you into wearing heeled shoes daily. With so many colors to choose from, you can get multiple pairs and have colors available to match just about any outfit.
Going away on a summer vacation en femme? Try a sandal like the Kitten Heel T-Strap Sandal. It’s both a great summer shoe for any hour of the day but is also classy enough to go with a cocktail dress for those outdoor summer parties.
Now that your all set with clothing options, it’s time to accessorize. The first and probably most important accessory is a wig. A good wig can go a long way in showing off your classy side. You should try and purchase the best wig you can afford because that wig and hair will become a big part of who you are when dressed. If you are able to get a wig that can be styled using straighteners or tongs that would give you even more choices on a hairstyle. We know that the price can be a factor for many, so we have some wig suggestions below, from the most affordable to more pricey options. One thing is for sure. When you put on that wig for the first time that you know is the right one for you, you will know. Take a look at some of our favorites:
Let’s move on to some jewelry shall we? When it comes to elegant jewelry, nothing should be too flashy. While huge embellished earrings are lovely for example, it’s best to keep things simple. Look for simple hoops, pearls or very light dangly earrings. Here are some of our favorite classy earring sets:
When it comes to accessories, at the end of the day, a stylish wig and some elegant looking jewelry are the perfect companions for a super stylish and classy finishing touch.
Keep Your Makeup Sophisticated
Perfecting your favorite, fully made-up face can take years of practice, and if you want to keep it classy, make sure you’re not overdoing it on the bright and bold colors. Stay within a fairly nude and natural palette, perhaps with a statement lip if you want to add a touch of color. Don’t over bronze, just add a touch of blush and bronze, and let your fluttering eyelashes do the hard work!
There is often a misconception that crossdressers cannot be classy because there are a lot of items out there that may be considered the opposite of elegnace. But with the right outfit selections along with proper styling and presentation choices, you can be the classiest girl on the block. And once you find that classy em femme look that screams you, you will be more confident in your dressing and more confident inside.
