I think it is a common misconception that glamour is all about “dressing up.” But putting your hair up and wearing something formal isn't the only way to be "glamorous." There are two kinds of glamour -- one for the red carpet and one you can incorporate into every day. While red carpet glamour is certainly a lot of fun, (we all love to dress up), everyday glamour is about a finished look you can move in, the details that finish the look, and the way that you feel in it. I guess it's almost more of a "state of grace" kind of effect.
When I think of women who had an amazing sense of glamour in their everyday style, I can't think of better examples than Katherine Hepburn, Grace Kelly, and Jackie Kennedy. I'm sure all three of them had an unmistakable "presence" when you met them personally, but their style helped frame and set the expectation for that effect. They were never overdone, but they always looked like they thought about their appearance and took the time to look their absolute best. Even if they wore a T-shirt, it was smart, it fit well, and they would finish it with simple details of jewelry, handbag, etc. that made it into a glamorous look, whether it was casual or not.
Some of their most famous photos (and best, in my opinion) show these women with those kinds of simple accessories…a pearl necklace, diamond studs, or a great pair of sunglasses. Their makeup was natural—never too heavy. And, their dresses and outfits were always perfectly tailored.
