It's a common assumption that those with a lot of money are elegant. But that's not always the case. Sure, people with flourishing financials have more of a chance of being elegant in the physical sense, but elegance is more than fancy cars and diamonds. It's also defined by behavior, personality and how people treat others. When you think of elegant people, what is it about them that makes them that way to you?
You could spend years emulating someone who you've deemed elegant, all while neglecting the parts of who you are that make you elegant in your own way. Elegance means something different to everyone. It's hard to keep up with all of the new stuff out there telling you how you should look, how you should act and what makes someone "real." All that noise is just that — noise. It doesn't amount to much if there's no substance behind it. If you want to work on bettering yourself, that's fantastic. It's even better if you're doing it for you and not to impress other people. Staying true to who you are is the most crucial part of elegance. If you're unsure of your elegance level, take this quiz to find out!
