How to Make Your Outfit Look More Expensive
We can all attest to buying cheaper to save our wallets from designer prices, but how do we take those fast fashion items & put them together in a way that makes us look & feel like we stepped out of a magazine?
Here are some key ways to accessorize & style ourselves to ensure that we’re always looking put together w/out (always) paying the price for designer fashion.
1. A Touch of Gold
A little gold jewelry goes a long way. It can really pump up the glam factor & breathe a little life into your look.
2. Monochrome Magic
Monochrome always looks sharp, refined, & elegant. Sometimes the best way to elevate an outfit is to just keep it simple & sleek.
3. The Highs & Lows
Mixing in higher quality items w/ your fast fashion brands will trick the eye. It would be difficult to tell which pieces are from H&M or Zara versus a designer brand.
4. Textural Healing
Adding textured pieces into your outfit will give it more dimension & interest creating an overall more eye-catching look.
5. Dressing-up Denim
Anyone can put together jeans & a tee, but by introducing pop colors or a statement jacket will set you apart from the crowd.
6. Groovy grooming
You’d be surprised how far a fresh manicure & a splash of bling will go. Don’t forget to treat yourself to a little extra grooming here & there. It will give off the impression that you’ve put a little effort into projecting a positive image.
