How to make your outfit look expensive. This is every girls dream to look like she is dressed in designer clothes without the price tag to go with it. Can it be done? Yes it can and it doesn’t have to break the bank either.
As many of you know, I am not a designer girl and I don’t own anything with a designer label unless I have bought it pre-loved. This is one way to get a quality piece, something that you would not normally be able to afford, either from a Dress Agency, Charity Shop, or on one of the many pre-loved shops online. Another way of course, is in the sales, or at their outlet stores. These sometimes carry last years stock, but if you are buying a classic item that does not date it’s not a problem.
How to make your outfit look expensive.
If you are buying from a cheaper range of clothing I would recommend to go for more neutral colours as they look more expensive, but if you do, add some colour in your accessories. Remember I am a girl with a passion for colour!! I would normally choose colour over a neutral everyday, unless I was going to add a colourful scarf or cardigan/jacket over the top.
Keep your jewellery simple, either silver or gold depending on whether you are a warm or cool toned lady. There is a great range of costume jewellery at Next with reasonably priced items. Wear a classic watch in gold or silver to complete your look.
Always invest in your core items in your wardrobe, choose a good tailored pair of trousers in a classic style that you know will be in your wardrobe for a while. You can justify the investment by working out price per wear. For example, a staple pair of black trousers that you will keep for several seasons. Then, you can always team them up with some less expensive fashion tops and get away with it.
Accessories always make an outfit, a colourful hand bag, a nice scarf, or statement piece of jewellery. Try wearing a nice belt with a good buckle (could be a copy) or it could be a designer one. Try Outnet for your discounted designer products. It is important to invest in a good quality hand bag. This does not have to be a designer one, could be a copy or just a nice quality bag for everyday, which is able to take the wear. Have a look at Accessorize their sale is still going on with up to 70% off. They have some great bargains and even full price they have a good selection of bags for all occasions.
Invest in a good coat, it is always a sign of a well dressed lady. As I said before if you work out the price per wear, it is worth it. The other alternative is a trench coat/mac as that will be in your wardrobe for a very long time. For a more casual look go for a leather jacket in black or brown as it can be worn casually with jeans and florals.
Now, it won’t make a difference to your overall look, if don’t look after yourself. By that I mean, well manicured nails in a neutral colour that are unchipped. Make sure that your shoes and boots have been polished. Wear your hair in a neat style that is washed and tidy. Make up needs to look good too, during the day go for a natural look and perhaps put the colour in your lipstick. The current trend is for a pop of colour around the eyes with a eye pencil. I have heard that the coloured mascara is coming back in so in the evening you could add a pop of colour to the ends of your lashes. The art is to keep it simple.
If you do all that, you will be feel confident, stand tall and rock your look, most importantly wear that smile. Smiling is infectious and is what gets you noticed and makes you approachable.
