To be classy one must embody and personify exquisite elegance, etiquette, sophistication, and grace. One can be classy in a manner of dressing, for example, or speaking. To be a classy individual, however, is an overall way of being — and not just any one thing that one does. Because formal class structures in our society largely don’t exist anymore, on the surface at least, any woman can be classy. There’s a fascinating book named Class: A Guide Through the American Status System on Amazon that I highly recommend reading on the topic.
