What if I told you that you don’t have to spend incredible amounts of money on your clothes in order to look expensive, stylish and fashionable? It is all about the way you accessorize and take care of your garments, the choice of colors, as well as your attitude. Of course, thinking strategically and investing money in smart buys is also a great way to elevate your entire outfit.
Clothes that look expensive are clothes that fit perfectly. Therefore, it doesn’t matter whether you’ve nailed a good bargain at your local store or managed to grab some more expensive items on an incredible sale if the garments look too loose, long or wide, in a way that makes them unflattering. Put your trust in a renowned tailor in your area so that you can have your clothes adjusted to your perfect fit.
Good materials and proper care
You should always be on the lookout for top quality materials regardless of their price. Even if you don’t want to go over budget, you can still find cheaper clothes that are made of quality fabrics. In order to save money, refrain from buying clothes that, even though cheap, are poorly made and of low-quality materials.
Also, always pay attention to the label and respect the rules when it comes to washing and ironing, in order to make your clothes last longer and keep looking new for months and months.
Don’t be sloppy
Even the most expensive clothes can look cheap and even unflattering if you’re sloppy. That being said, if you want your outfit to look expensive don’t go out with wrinkles all over your garments. Steam or iron them before you put them on.
Also, never wear clothes that have a stain on them. Make sure that everything is in place – a hanging belt, rolled down stockings, a messily tucked in shirt and details like that really make an outfit and the person that wears it look cheap, sloppy and unfashionable.
When choosing your pieces of clothing with the idea of making them look expensive in mind, stick to simple colors. For example, black and white are the perfect option to make any outfit look more luxurious and elegant than it really is. Combining black and white or going for one color for the whole outfit is recommended when you choose your elegant ladies clothing bits and pieces.
There are also some other colours that have an expensive feel to them, such as maroon, royal blue and dark green. Refrain from wearing too many patterns, unless it’s leopard print.
Match the bag and shoes
While you keep your outfit simple in order to achieve the desired elegant look, add an expensive twist with shoes and a bag that match, in a different, a bit bolder color. A completely black outfit with white or red shoes and bag looks really fashionable. Make sure to always clean and polish your shoes and bag so that they look new, stylish and more expensive.
Add statement accessories
Accessories in gold can make any outfit brighter and add a definite feel of luxury to it. If you’re buying cheap jewelry, make sure to opt for one that has the color of old, antique gold rather than the bright, more yellow gold, because bright gold can appear cheap even when it’s not, not to mention that jewelry that’s actually cheap will draw attention to the fact that it’s fake.
In order to add some finishing touches to your seemingly expensive and fashionable look, always make sure that your hair, makeup and nails look flawless and flattering. You can also invest some money in an expensive and durable piece which will last for a number of years, but undoubtedly make any look really chic and luxurious.
