If you think that in order to look expensive, you need to spend huge amount of money on clothing and update the wardrobe every season? Here are 10 simple rules how to achieve this without spending a lot of money and still never to look cheap!
1. Do not show Labels
Drawing attention of the public on the brands that you prefer to wear been in bad taste for a long time now. Therefore, even if you prefer to wear only the originals of the world’s fashion houses, it is not necessary to label yourself entirely with the Logos – there is a risk to look tasteless. I will not even be discussing the knock-offs … let’s not even get in there.
2. Be a Tidy Person
Slovenliness is one of the main enemies of style. That is why you should always monitor the state of your clothes, shoes and accessories – they should not have any stains, visible damage and signs of wear. It is equally important that your clothes are always clean and ironed (if the last point sounds painful to you , try to avoid buying clothes from the materials that wrinkles easily, or requiring regular visits to professional cleaning ).
3. Invest in Shoes and Handbags
I do not suggest you to go and buy exclusively Louis Vuitton bags and Gucci boots, but the quality of shoes and accessories is very important and, in fact, it builds your image. Choose bags and shoes made of natural or man-made (but high quality) materials. Remember these tips how to look expensive: you can buy inexpensive clothing brands, but because of the quality details in them your fashion image will look at several fashion steps above.
4. Wear White Color more often
White clothing isn’t the first thing that comes to our minds when we think about practicality. However a total white look always looks very elegant, especially during fall and winter. Make a good use of this option, but certainly not for an every day look.
5. Pay attention to the quality of the clothing
Clothing brands on a budget still defer: it is better to buy a good quality white T-shirt for $50 than five low-quality white t-shirts for the same money. Mini-investment like that will significantly prolong the life of your wardrobe (especially the base part).
6. Do not ignore Internet Shopping
You can buy brand name clothes online for relatively little money if you will monitor them for sales on a regular basis. Many websites offer you a subscription to their website that will regularly notify you on any sales at that moment. And overall online stores have a much better selection on clothing and accessories ( including low cost options).
7. Do not experiment with rhinestones and sequins
Rhinestones and sequins have the right to live… on the insanely expensive couture dresses. Most of other times all sorts of rhinestones look cheap and tasteless. Be very careful with them.
8. Forget about huge bags
Small and medium size bags look neater and nicer by default. Huge dimensionless knapsacks in addition scare men. They are scared to imagine what a woman is carrying in that huge bag. ( Think of your potential Cavaliers).
9. Do not chase the “hot trend” clothing for one season
Most “hot” trends, that all the ladies around wear instantly, usually tend to go out of fashion very quickly. If you try to avoid unnecessary spending on clothes, you should avoid such a senseless shopping – it is better to invest in a beautiful and high-quality basic clothes or fashionable, but not too “obvious”, that when other people will look at you they will instantly recall that 2015 Spring, when everyone around were wearing that same thing.
10. Do not wear cheap and low quality Jewelry
That bracelet for $3.99, which is already peeling off within the first week, or a $5.99 gold color ring on every finger – no matter which one you would prefer. Such jewelry will not add any value to your fashion image. Find a brand that produces high-quality and beautiful jewelry made of precious metals. It should not be difficult to do nowadays.
