When you want to elevate your look, you don't really need to do a major style overhaul and replace all of the things you already own. As long as you have the basics, you can simply mix it with elegant pieces to make you look more sophisticated, polished, and yes, expensive. We round up the key pieces to startup your classy closet collection:

1. The soft, billowy blouse

Wear it for work or for a night out, this feminine blouse is like an upgraded version of the versatile white button down shirt, only more sophisticated.

Try: Mango Ruffled Cotton Blouse, P1,750, at Glorietta

2. The statement jewelry

A pair of eye-catching jewelry will add opulence to your look. It doesn't need to be gemstone studded or oversized. Refined and minimalist pieces can also grant you an elevated appeal (aka less chances of looking tacky and cheap).

Try: H&M Necklace with Pendant, P199, at SM Makati

3. The classy, non-black jacket

Sure, the black blazer is key, but owning one in a lacey fabric is the perfect one to wear when you want to feel elegant and dreamy.

Try: Miss Selfridge Premium White Lace Jacket, at Greenbelt

4. The pleated midi skirt

Of course, no effeminate style would be complete without the pleated mini skirt! Plus, this style looks great on all body types.

Try: Bershka A-Line Pleated Skirt in Green, P1,795, at Glorietta

5. The high-waist trousers

Its high rise cut creates the illusion of a tiny waist, making your curves look sexier! It also gives an optical illusion of your body looking taller and slimmer.

Try: Zara High Waist Skinny Trouser, P1,795, at SM Megamall

6. The mid-heel shoes

Mixing comfort and polish, mid heel sandals are perfect for days when you need to do a lot of indoor walking.

7. The structured handbag
