I got my red dress on tonight
Dancing in the dark in the pale moonlight
Done my hair up real big beauty queen style
High heels off, I’m feeling alive
—Lana Del Rey

And I bet she’s smiling.

Think about the last time you went somewhere and all eyes were on someone. They looked fly. Dressed to the nines. Rocking a look. Owning it.

I bet they were smiling.

Ever find yourself smiling to yourself in public? I bet you noticed someone smiled back. And when you bought your favorite outfit, I bet it was the smile reflected in the dressing room mirror that sold it to you.

A smile is the ultimate fashion accessory. It’s universal and it doesn’t cost a thing. Put one on and it can light up a room. Don’t panic if your pearly whites aren’t so pearly. Smiles come in styles, too — there’re shy ones, crooked ones, lips slightly-parted ones and pursed ones. Smiles even show up in your eyes, which legendary supermodel Tyra Banks coined the “smize.”

Glamour. Bohemian. Vintage. Preppy. Whatever style you identify with, a smile goes with it. Think of putting your look together like assembling the layers of an ice cream sundae. A smile is the cherry on top. It’s cheerful, bright and inviting. It looks like the life of the party.

A smile goes with everything. Harness the joy of wearing it.
