I searched through my Tumblr images to bring you my collection of the classiest, most sophisticated, well put together, and intimidating Black women ever! These women have "IT". Any man would want them but only those with confidence, prestige, and a lot going for them will be willing to approach these ladies. This is the look that you want. You do not want to be the type of women who men (and women) are reluctant to approach because you look mean, angry, and likely to snap at them. Men don't want those women and these 'mean mugging' women are deluding themselves if they think differently. Instead it is better to be the type of woman who most men want, but only the best have what it takes to approach. The ones who see you are too good for them will leave you alone.
Some of these images may be modeling photos so the clothing may be expensive. Ignore the actual clothing and designers and instead focus on the style. Ignore the fact that some of these women are models and thinner than you are. Also ignore the fact that most of the women have straightened hair because natural hair will work just as well. Pay the most attention to the posture of the women, how they are presenting themselves, and the look of confidence they exude. This is what sets these women apart from others. These are EBWs at their finest and most polished. This is one of my most important posts because I could not have done this early on my journey. I had to learn what dressing classy and in classic styles meant. I had to look at images and read about it before being able to pick out the look. I didn't even think I would look good in pearls or small earrings until I tried them! This post also proves that Black women can look beautiful in these fashions, they can be classy and sophisticated if they want to, and there are role models who demonstrate how to do it.
Pay attention to the images of non-celebrities because their fashions will probably be more affordable and more like something you could imagine wearing. You will see numerous examples of women with that elusive 'neutral yet not frowning" look, timeless and minimal jewelry, classic and simple yet attractive fashions, and gorgeous EBWs. It is of course fine to be pretty, cute, the girl next door, down to earth, and approachable, but this post is about looking out of most men's league, confident, and like top shelf material! I hope you enjoy it :)
|1) Simple, minimal jewelry, confidence.|
|3) Perfect example of simple and classic jewelry.|
Pearls and beads, monochromatic or one colour
are best, along with metallics. Her make-up is
natural. Well groomed and polished or natural
nails are a must.
|4) EBW Angelique Noire looks so classy. Pearls, simple but|
flattering dress, and a nice handbag. Plus excellent posture!
|6) Anais Mali: This outfit is just lovely,|
not too distracting, but still interesting.
It fits perfectly and her feminine waist
is accentuated. Monochromatic looks are
|8) #1 Supermodel Joan Smalls looks amazing here.|
Her dress, jewelry, make-up, and hair are simple.
She has the neutral, barely there smile.
|7) I LOVE this photo! EBWs Diana|
and Tracee Ellis Ross are out of
everyone's league so don't even try!
The hair, the beauty, the flawless skin,
amazing and un-aging bodies...I can't
say enough about how flawless they
|10) Model Lana Ogilvie is wearing a hat that adds|
sophistication and style to anyone who wears it.
This look gets attention so make sure the rest
of your outfit doesn't detract from your look.
Certain hats can really make you look classy.
|9) EBW Megalyn Echikunwoke in a simple|
but classy outfit. Monochromatic with
minimal jewelry. Cute little peplum, I think
peplums are adorable and classy too.
|12) EBW Sade in a simple black dress with|
white beads. Looking classy and
sophisticated is just that simple! Being
trendy and eye-catching is much more
difficult and often fails.
|11) A little feathered flare added to a|
little black dress. This gets just enough
|14) Meghan Markle looks so pretty with a soft and natural|
looking updo (no shellacked hair), simple make-up, and
a beaded dress with small earrings.
|13) EBW Saana Lathan!!! Is this not|
intimidating? She is just so gorgeous
and well put together here. Simple dress
with an interesting collar piece and neutral
shoes. I want to have this effect on people.
|15) I really like this outfit Joan Smalls is|
wearing. Monochromatic again with
some feminine lace. Pencil skirt.
|17) EBW Kerry Washington is sitting pretty|
in a white dress with black trim. Great
posture and minimal jewelry.
|19) Classic EBW Dorothy Dandrige sits|
so elegantly in her dress suit with double
stranded pearls. I wish gloves would come
back into style because they just complete
the look. Brooches are a nice touch to plain
|20) You know classy sophistication when|
you see it and this is it! Wear this, get respect,
it's that easy!
|21) I think that this is more of a conservative, respectable|
look rather than intimidating. It's just very feminine and
pretty so this woman looks like wife material.
|22) EBW Gina Torres on the set of Suits. Classy, simple,|
and in charge. Wear this to work, get respect, yet still look
like a lady. Powerful women don't have to look like men.
|24) EBW Audra McDonald...maybe you just need to lounge|
on a chair or sofa to look classy lol! See that look in her eye,
learn it, use it, be desired! Don't flash your skin or be vulgar,
just do the look and things will happen ;)
|26) I had to put this in here to show that Black|
women look great doing rich people stuff.
Get privilege, use it, and enjoy it without shame!
|28) Model Jessica White is here because of|
that look. See it? That's confidence.
Beautiful and I love the frilly shoulders.
|27) This is a young lady from Nigeria if I remember.|
Her outfit is simple but classy but it's her sitting
posture that really stands out. She is neat and well
put together. This look is attainable.
|30) I think this is a non-celebrity too but|
she is dressed in a very respectable manner.
I think trench coats are very classy and I have
several from thrift stores. This is not an
"around the way girl".
|31) I believe that this is a beauty queen and she looks oh so|
classy in this white dress and simple chain necklace. No need
to be flashy.
|34) Meek-n-mild fashion and|
make-up vlogger. She is also wearing a
white blazer...yay I have one! The red
dress is cute and I like the black
accessories and tights. Great outfit!
|35) What a pretty young lady! I like the lacy top and long|
skirt with a metallic necklace. Excellent posture and
a beautiful smile too :)
