  4. The Rules of Elegance


Whether are looking at a piece of art or an attractive person, we are naturally attracted to the beautiful.

The same can be said for elegance, an all-encompassing property that applies not only to people, but also to shape, atmosphere, food, and even the very lifestyles we live.

This volume from the popular Emiko Kato Series introduces practical advice and pearls of wisdom about what exactly it is that separates the elegant from the unrefined.

The Rules of Elegance covers topics ranging from how to dress, and converse with others, to lifestyle and mind-set tips that will help you to maintain elegance wherever you go. Also included are examples of 10 real-life scenarios that could put you to the test, as well as Emiko’s suggestions for how to gracefully resolve them.
