How to Look Smarter (for Women)


A woman's overall look can express a lot at first glance. Many women want to look smart in order to be taken seriously, whether they're in the business world or in a casual situation. Looking intelligent may take a few tweaks of your appearance. While it's ultimately up to you to evaluate your own look and decide what you can do to appear sharper, there are a few strategies any woman can follow to make herself look smarter.

Things You'll Need

  • Eyeglasses
  • Always make sure your clothing fits properly. Well-tailored and dignified pieces with clean lines can make you appear more competent.

  • Wear eyeglasses. Find frames that fit your face. Nothing says "intellectual" more than specs. According to a study by the Vision Council of America, 59.2 percent of people viewed those who wore glasses as "more intelligent."

  • Get a short haircut. Most female CEOs and politicians sport short low-maintenance cuts. If you choose to keep your hair long, wear it sleek and simple, or put it up in a low ponytail or bun.

  • Apply your makeup so that it looks minimal. Consider using a foundation to even out your skin tone; carefully contouring your cheekbones; shaping your eyebrows; and maybe applying a little bit of eyeliner on your top lid. Looking like you're wearing too much makeup can detract from your intelligent appearance.

  • Wear solid, dark and relatively subdued colors. Dark colors provide a more serious appearance. Minimalist outfits can look sharp.
