5 ways to be more elegant in 2022

Tips to upgrade your life in 2022

For so many reasons, 2022 feels like the perfect year to start fresh, to commit to those “new year, new me” feelings that we all experience in the beginning of the year. My personal goal for 2022: introduce more elegance into my life. Does that seem confusing? Remember, elegance is about knowing yourself, following your dreams and refusing to accept less than you’re worth. (If you haven’t yet read my manifesto on modern elegance, you’ll find it here.) 

If you’ve been delaying your elegance journey until you achieve a certain net worth or relationship status, then let me be blunt: you, my dear, have it backwards. When you embrace your power as an elegant woman who knows her worth, that’s when you’ll begin to see shifts in your romantic life, personal projects and career opportunities. Ready to begin your level up journey? Read on for my easy tips to elegance in 2022. 

Detox Your Space

Parting with possessions is never easy, but let 2022 be the year you finally banish clutter from your physical space. First, it’s visually unpleasant. Second, it sends the wrong message to anyone who sees it – including you! An elegant woman surrounds herself only with beautiful things that add value to her life. Each and every item in your home should bring you joy.

Start an Elegance Journal

Whether a classic notebook or an app on your phone, nothing jumpstarts your elegance journey like a journal. Taking a few moments each day to record the steps you’ve taken to introduce more elegance into your life not only keeps you accountable to your goal, it also improves your ability to see and appreciate the everyday elegance around you. You’ll be surprised how often modern elegance hides in plain sight!

Commit to a Cause

If you’ve spent time around elegant ladies, you’re no doubt aware that many devote considerable resources to charities, nonprofits and other organisations that serve the greater good. While you may not be in a position to make big donations just yet, nothing stops you from contributing your time or skills to a cause you care about. Remember, elegance is about substance as much as style. 

Mind Your Manners

If you haven’t yet invested in learning about etiquette, then it’s time to do so as it will help you to feel confident moving through any social setting.

Re-evaluate Your Relationships

As a high-value woman, you no doubt put a great deal of care into developing and maintaining your close relationships, especially with other women. I always encourage supportive female friendships – but every relationship should go both ways. If you find you’re always giving, giving, giving or constantly defending your choices and boundaries, it may be time to gracefully cut ties to make room for new connections.
