Whenever I take a look at magazines, I always try to find ways to recreate some looks – from Olivia Palermo’s low key but high fashion wedding day look to Taylor Swift’s everyday street style outfits – but I often find that the pieces featured in these looks are super expensive. I think fashion is something that you should enjoy no matter what your financial status is so I’ve done some research and came up with this list of simple styling tips to make your outfits look more expensive without you having to blow up some serious cash. Check them out below.
- WEAR WHITE FROM HEAD TO TOE – white is such a clean and sophisticated color and it never fails to lend any look that crisp and chic vibe. Sporting an all white outfit is an easy way to make your outfit look more expensive than it actually is but be very careful because even the tiniest stain can cheapen up the look.
- CINCH YOUR JACKET WITH A BELT – another easy styling trick that you can do to make your outfit look more expensive and high fashion-y is to cinch your jacket by the waist and add a belt. Not only will this make you look like a million bucks, it will also help define your figure and flatter your curves.
- CARRY A STRUCTURED BAG – a structured bag will give your outfit that final touch of posh that it needs to look a thousand dollars more than its actual worth. It doesn’t have to be a designer bag, of course, but at least make sure that it is sharply and sleekly designed and detailed.
- OPT FOR LONGER HEMLINES – miniskirts and mini dresses are cute and all but they have a very street style-ish look to them whereas midis and maxis have a more elegant and classy vibe. It can also add that posh and polished look to your outfit, especially when worn with the right shoes and accessories.
- EXPERIMENT WITH PROPORTIONS – you know what most of those high fashion outfits you see on magazines and on the internet have in common? They all have a very unique play on proportions. Having one oversized piece in your outfit often gets the job done so don’t be afraid to step into palazzo pants or maxi cardigan territory. Just make sure that everything else in your outfit fits nicely so that it doesn’t end up looking cheap and shabby.
