Elegance is Refusal

Rebel Alexa



In our age of jeans and sneakers Elegance is a quality of style and grace. Eternal fashion icon Coco Chanel famously said, “Elegance is refusal,” it’s one of my of my favorite quotes for every situation not only for fashion. What does this quote mean? It is the act of saying no, of pulling back. And whether we are talking fashion or we are talking about how to carry oneself, it is all the same. Less is always more.


What do you think, is my casual outfit ‘refusal’ enough?

Elegance is refusal – for me this means that you are not afraid to stand in your own shoes, choose your style wisely, and stay true to more classic, quality, and refined pieces….avoid falling victim to the world of ever changing trends – where some can be good for you and others not so good. When I hear the word ‘elegance’ – refined, classic, and timeless – are the words that come to mind. Elegance is refusing to fall victim ‘to the times’ and stay true to one self.
