3. Carry yourself like royalty
You can never go wrong with poise and elegance. Poise has to do with an inner grace and deportment. That means shoulder back, shoulders straight and head held high without being stiff and overbearing.
Elegance does not mean sporting the latest fashion wear straight from the pages of a fashion magazine. Nor does it mean strutting the most expensive purse you can splurge on.
