What does “ladylike” mean to you?

For me, the definition of ladylike has me thinking of Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, lunches in elegant restaurants, knowing which fork to use, simple flower arrangements of champagne-coloured roses or pale pink peonies, behaving well at all times, being knowledgeable about music and the arts, being an excellent hostess, and always, always treating people kindly.

 

 

What’s YOUR definition of “ladylike”? What does the term “behave like a lady” conjure up for you? Old fashioned and stuffy? Or still relevant today? Leave a comment below.

See some history and context from Wikipedia.
