You admire all those perfect and gorgeous
stars who wear stunning outfits. And you’d like to look like them, but it’s no secret
that their wardrobe can cost a fortune! Don’t despair; there are ways to make your clothes
look more expensive without spending too much money. For example… 1. Choose the right fabric
There’s no denying the fact that natural silk, cashmere, and leather look really chic, but
they’re usually pricey. Still, you can find affordable alternatives that don’t look cheap.
Items made of linen, faux suede, and cotton are your best choice because they’re usually
high-quality. It’s better to avoid synthetic materials since they can lose their shape
easily. When it comes to polyester, it’s kind of a tricky one – its quality varies from
item to item. So before buying, you should examine the clothes closely to make sure they
look and feel good on your skin. 2. Go for color unity
If you follow fashion, then you’ve probably noticed that designers come up with sets of
clothing that share the same color family quite often. So if you want to come to haute
couture, pick up a few colors that you like the most, and choose clothes of similar shades
for your wardrobe. Such outfits will definitely make you look more put-together and elegant.
Besides, you’ll spend less time getting ready in the morning since everything matches. Win-win! 3. Get a white shirt.
Any wardrobe is incomplete without this item! A white shirt made of high-quality material
that comes in a cut that suits your figure will make any outfit look perfect. It’s one
of the basics and complements almost any style. But here’s the important thing – make sure
your shirt is actually white, because dull whites can instantly drag an outfit down. 4. Don’t neglect the handbag
When it comes to accessories, a handbag is really one of the most important; it makes
the whole outfit look polished. No matter how strong the temptation is, try to avoid
buying fakes. When you’re on a budget, it’s better to find something original and unique.
Look for a handbag in neutral colors that matches most of your outfits and avoid those
with contrasting clasps, fringes, folds, or embroidery because usually these details are
concealing bad quality. 5. No faded colors
Your favorite red blouse isn’t so red anymore? It’s time to say goodbye without regret! If
you don’t want to ruin your image and look cheap, get rid of the clothes with washed-out
colors. To keep all your garments looking beautiful, make sure you wash them carefully
and pay attention to the instructions on the tags. 6. Fit is the key
There’s nothing worse (okay, a few other things) than an ill-fitting outfit. It can
happen even if you’ve chosen the right size because – shocker – one size doesn’t fit
all. But you can always save the situation with just a couple of stitches by a tailor.
That’s how cheap clothes can end up looking much better on you than an outfit from a famous
designer. 7. Don’t overuse perfume
Fragrance is the last detail that finishes your outfit. Perfume can tell a lot about
a person, just like clothing and accessories. It can highlight your style, taste, and individuality.
But it’s better not to use too much perfume if you have to be on public transport or in
a building for a long time. A classy lady always respects other people’s private space! 8. When in doubt choose beige.
This classically neutral color somehow has the power to magically make you look more
luxurious and trendy. What’s more, you can effortlessly match it with almost any color.
That’s why a lot of women who strive to have a perfect image often own a beige coat
that’s never out of fashion. 9. Don’t forget about grooming
A famous designer, Karl Lagerfeld, once said, “You can look perfect and elegant even wearing
jeans and a T-shirt.” So while you get inspiration from fashion icons and follow style tips,
don’t forget that clothes aren’t the be-all end-all. The way you look also depends on
your body shape, your skin condition, and makeup. Work on your appearance and you’ll
feel confident and beautiful in any clothes! 10. Be careful with prints
It’s totally fine to incorporate prints into your wardrobe if you go for classic ones
like stripes, dots, and leopard print. They’re basically timeless. But all others are hard
to combine with other clothes and might even be unflattering depending on your figure type.
Also, don’t buy the item if the print is broken – the pattern should assemble well
at the seams. 11. Avoid visible zippers
To tell the quality of a garment, you should look not only at its fabric, but its accessories
as well. Visible zippers are an obvious giveaway to cheap clothes. The zipper should be covered
or at least the color of all its parts should be similar to the fabric. 12. Tuck in your clothes
Of course, you want to look polished and casual at the same time. As if you haven’t spent
a few hours getting ready, right? But a loose shirt will probably give you an incomplete
look. In most cases, it’s better to tuck in any top garment. It will make your outfit
more cohesive and – as a bonus – highlight your waist. 13. Wrinkled clothes are a big “no”
Nothing screams “sloppy” as much as wrinkled clothes! And trust me – there’s no way
other people won’t notice it. I get that ironing isn’t the most exciting thing to
do, but if you want to look impeccable, you just have to do it. No matter how much your
outfit costs, it’ll definitely look much better when it’s neat and smooth. 14. Don’t forget about underwear
Even the most luxurious outfit can be ruined by visible panty lines. To avoid this pesky
situation, you can either choose shapewear that’ll make you look slimmer or try basic
thongs that look smooth underneath any clothing item. However, your bra matters too. Get a
pair of silicone bra cups that’ll let you rock backless and strapless dresses or blouses. 15. Change the buttons
Any regular shirt, cardigan, or coat can be transformed into something more elegant by
simply changing the buttons. Cheap clothes usually come with plastic buttons, but you
can easily replace them with glass, wooden, or metal buttons. You can find some really
interesting options at sewing shops, or even your grandmothers’ sewing cabinet. You can
even use buttons from old clothes you don’t wear anymore. 16. Make a blazer your best friend
When you want a more chic style, you absolutely don’t have to change your whole wardrobe.
Sometimes all it takes is a few new items. One of them is definitely a blazer. A classic
one in a neutral color will make you look more put-together, while a bright one will
bring extra life into your outfit. 17. Manage your priorities
It’s more sensible to invest money in your basic wardrobe than in clothes for special
occasions, and trendy items. You wear basic clothing almost every day, so it’s important
to get it in the best affordable quality. And while that hot-pink princess dress looks
stunning, you’ll only get to wear it once, so don’t splurge your whole paycheck on
it. 18. Throw on some sunglasses
I have no idea how it works, but putting on sunglasses instantly makes your whole outfit
look better. Maybe that’s something the celebrities started, who knows. If you’re
in doubt which to choose, always go for classic, oversized black shades. They complement almost
any outfit regardless of the style. 19. Get a pair of pointy shoes
When it comes to footwear, you don’t need to revamp your entire shoe collection; but
it’s a great idea to get a classic pair of pointed shoes. Going from a rounded toe
to a pointy shoe changes an outfit in the blink of an eye. A pointy toe shows that you
mean business and adds that extra elegant detail. 20. Pay attention to the hardware
True chic style is all about the small details that most people tend to overlook. Take a
look at the color of metal zippers on your clothes, shoes, bags, and jewelry. Make sure
they match. The same goes for a belt buckle. Pick one hardware item that will be the baseline,
and choose all others to go with it. For example, if you have a yellow gold necklace, all other
hardware in your outfit should be of the same hue. Not that big a deal, right? But trust
me, it’ll bring that perfect subtle harmony to your look. Do you know any other tips that help you look
