History of Glamour Style
The origins of the style date back to the 1970s, at which time, designers began to introduce sequined elements in their collections, metallic fabrics, very large fine jewelry on the runways of their shows. It was intended to refer to the Hollywood stars of the 1920s, and Marilyn Monroe is cited as the biggest inspiration of feminine and sensual forms. It should be remembered that the glamour style was a response to the prevailing fashion of the time for fitness and sporty, loose clothing. Therefore, its basis are cuts that emphasize the silhouette, often fitted and even revealing the body. It is meant to be ultra-feminine and sophisticated.

What is glamour style?
Glamour style, to some of us, will be associated with something “expensive”, extravagant, prestigious and a bit irreverent. To others again with unnecessary splendor, “excess” and perhaps even kitsch. Regardless of which group you belong to or whether you are a so called “”group”. “magpie” or minimalist, you can draw from it only as much as you feel like.
When we hear glamour style, the first thing we think of is evening styling, red carpet, carnival, or New Year’s Eve styling. All “those” moments when it falls out to dress up, take care of makeup, hair and accessories. What if, to add a little glamour to our daily lives and our styling, you wonder how to do it?
If we want to determine what is the basis for this style, it is certainly good quality materials, very often shiny, such as – silk, velvet, satin, chiffon, but also
Lace, guipure or high-quality cotton. Of the base elements characteristic of glamour style, we can certainly distinguish cocktail dresses
(little black), classic blazers or suits, shiny tops, pants in soft flowing fabrics, pumps with jewelry elements, small minaudiere bags or shiny clutch bags. A very important complementary element is stronger makeup with an emphasis on the lips and eyes, as well as a thoughtful and arranged hairstyle. All of this will certainly be taken care of at a “big” outing or a more important occasion for us.
What will make everyday styling glamorous?
So how to easily smuggle into your daily style, glamour elements that will turn up the heat on even the simplest styling?
A very fashionable trend in recent seasons is sheer trends, or transparencies. Celebrities are very eager to use it in their styling for big galas, and we can add such a top or blouse to our styling for going out with friends or a date. This will add more sensuality and “claw” to it.
Sequin jackets, in animal prints, or finished with shiny fabric, even with a pair of your favorite jeans will create the perfect outfit, referring to the glamour style.
Small elements do the job!
Remember that glamour style is about quality, so for more formal styling, you can add a silk or plain cotton shirt in definite noble shades – burgundy, burgundy, emerald, green, silver or navy blue. You will definitely gain more elegance with it. The simplest option will certainly be the right accessories, which you can easily use in more or less formal styling. A large necklace around the neck, pendant earrings set with stones, a wide bracelet on the wrist are just a few easy options. Don’t like strong jewelry, opt for gold or silver sandals or shiny pumps. A small jewelry handbag, will also turn up your daytime look.

Sarah Jessica Parker and the magic of her styling
When we see Sarah Jessica Parker, I think it’s hard for most of us to separate her from her role as Carrie Bradshaw, from Sex in the City, and her spectacular screen styling, which most of us have been sighing for, and certainly her shoe closet 😉
The actress, like her character, often relies on glamour and extravagance in her styling. The above styling is a great example of combining shiny materials and forms with each other. A gold cocktail dress with a huge tie at the neck, complemented by a jacket kept in a consistent style, create a spectacular whole without contradiction referring to glamour style and its unconventionality. Not all of us would dare such a strong combination for everyday life, but maybe for some bigger outing…. It’s worth getting inspired, especially the color combination.
Another styling, showing how Sarah likes glitter and interesting combinations. The whole is kept in very modern forms, a little looser, but the shiny materials are again a reference to the class of glamour style, and the selected colors and print, give the styling femininity and lightness. The pumps are a trademark of the actress, but in this case they are an element that “closes” the styling and puts a dot over the “i”. This proposal, can also be an inspiration on how to combine well a handbag and shoes in two contrasting colors and not be afraid to reach for such combinations, also on a daily basis.
Glamour performed by Lady Gaga
Lady Gaga is also a personality who reaches for unconventional combinations in her stage and daytime looks. If you want to add a touch of flash and feel glamorous in a pair of jeans and a t-shirt from your closet, then this proposal is for you. With a very simple styling base, you can create a “wow” effect with just a few elements. Gaga balanced her silver platform sandals very well with a metallic blazer and a chunky necklace. It can be said that the “regular” got a new life, and certainly a party version.
This time Gaga presented a black total look, in which, again, base, classic elements are intertwined with a very original blouse. Of course, she is the detail that draws attention to the background. Its shimmering finish, corseted cut, and delicate neckline are the essence of what we call glamour. It adds both elegance through the material, femininity through the waisted cut and sensuality through the cutout. If you have in your closet classic black pants, and boots, you can with the help of, only an interesting blouse, create an artist-like styling 😉
Regardless of what you have in your closet and what you wear on a daily basis, sometimes all it takes is one piece to turn styling on its glamorous side! Fashion should be played with and inspired, then our outfits will always be shot!
