There’s something timeless about classy women that goes beyond the clothes they wear and the possessions that they own.
They’re graceful, elegant, and sophisticated.
From their refined sense of style to their good manners, and their appreciation for the finer things in life, this article will explore 13 things that only classy women can relate to.
Let’s get started:
1) Quality over quantity
Here’s the thing: When it comes to classy women, they always choose quality over quantity.
For example, they’d rather have a modestly sized but delicious dish from a very good restaurant than go to an “all-you-can-eat for ＄9.99” kind of place.
And when it comes to clothes, they go after beautiful, quality garments instead of chasing sales and going for buy-on-get-one-free deals. They’d rather have one beautiful, quality dress than 10 “cheap” dresses for the same price.
2) Intellectual conversations
Classy women are educated and well-read, so it goes to follow that they’d enjoy engaging in deep, intelligent, and thought-provoking conversations.
That’s why they always try to be around like-minded people who stimulate their minds.
3) Etiquette and good manners
Now, this doesn’t just mean knowing how to dress and act in different situations or having good table manners – which of course they have.
There’s more to being classy.
Classy women show kindness and respect toward other people, no matter who they are and where they come from.
And let me tell you something else: Truly classy women aren’t snobs.
4) Elegance and refinement
They appreciate refined and sophisticated aesthetics, whether it’s in how they dress, how they decorate their home, or their surroundings.
You’ll often find classy women traveling to picturesque little towns in Europe, just for the aesthetics.
5) Sense of style
It’s clear from the way they dress.
Their style reflects their refined taste and sophistication. They’d never be caught dead wearing anything too flashy or attention-grabbing.
Think along the lines of timeless elegance, simplicity, and understated beauty. See what I mean?
And of course, they always make sure that the fit is right and to coordinate their colors and accessories.
6) Timeless beauty
Classy women appreciate the beauty that has stood the test of time, whether it’s classic works of art, literature, architecture, music, or fashion.
They don’t really go for current trends and prefer things that are timeless.
7) Education and intelligence
As I mentioned earlier, classy women are educated.
They understand the value of lifelong learning and are always looking for ways to grow and improve their knowledge.
What’s more, they’re often involved in NGOs that advocate the right to education, especially when it comes to education for girls.
That’s right, they have a strong sense of right and wrong, and principles that they live their lives according to.
They’re honest, consistent, and have a strong moral compass.
And the best part?
No matter how difficult the situation they find themselves in, they’re committed to doing the right thing and never compromising their values and beliefs.
Furthermore, they take responsibility for their actions.
Simply put: Classy women have honor and dignity.
9) Empathy and compassion
Remember how I said they treat everyone with respect?
Well, that’s because they’re good human beings who are full of empathy and compassion. They don’t believe that they’re better than anyone else.
They’re open-minded and always willing to listen and hear new perspectives to see things from someone else’s point of view.
And because they’re such classy ladies, even when they don’t agree with someone’s point of view, they respect it.
10) Love of culture and the arts
Do you know where you’re most likely to find classy women?
At art galleries, museums, and opera houses of course.
They make it their mission in life to surround themselves with as much art and culture as possible.
But that’s not all, their deep appreciation for the arts often results in their choice of profession – that’s why a lot of classy women are opera singers, painters, and museum curators.
They believe in their own abilities, qualities, and self-worth.
Classy women are comfortable in their own skin and have a positive self-image.
Sounds good, right?
They carry themselves with grace and confidence and aren’t afraid to face criticism and judgment because they can speak up for themselves. And another thing, they’re not afraid to stand up for others.
In short: Classy women are strong and resilient, which is why they’re so inspiring and admirable.
12) Philanthropy and charity
Truly classy women are generous people.
That’s why they’re involved in a lot of philanthropic and charity work.
And unlike some women who create charities out of boredom or to look good, classy women do it because they genuinely want to do good and make a difference.
That means that they can express themselves clearly and effectively, while using language in a thoughtful and impactful way.
They have a strong command of language and are skilled communicators.
And because they’re so good with words, they’re often quite persuasive and inspiring.
But that’s not all.
The fact that they’re so careful in choosing their words and how they express themselves means that they’re able to build meaningful relationships and connect with others.
It also means that they almost never blurt out something without thinking because they’re always mindful of other people’s feelings.
5 things classy women never do
They know that gossip can hurt and harm people and they want nothing to do with it.
I mean, what’s the point of spreading rumors about people? How can it be considered fun?
No, gossip just isn’t something classy women want to be associated with.
Now, while they may be friendly and outgoing, classy women have certain boundaries that they don’t like to cross. These include oversharing.
You see, they like some things to stay private. What’s more, they’re aware of how uncomfortable oversharing can make some people.
You know what I’m talking about – like when someone you don’t know that well tells you, “I’m having an affair with my boss who is a married man.”
I mean, how do you respond to something like that?
3) Pretend to be someone she’s not
As we’ve already established, classy women are confident and have integrity.
That’s why they don’t feel the need to pretend to be someone they’re not.
They’re comfortable in their own skin and that means that they’re not going to change for anyone.
4) Use crude vocabulary
I mean, it happens to the best of us, but it’s certainly not something that you’ll get from a classy woman very often.
5) Show off
It’s just not their style.
In fact, classy women think it’s rather crude to show off – it’s the opposite of classy.
