Looking like money is not something that is hard to achieve. You do not have to go broke to look like money. I have posted in this post here a shopping spree at Fashion Nova for $650.00. You can achieve looking like money for under $650.00. I do not know about you, but I never understood the concept of looking like your rich and flossing with cars, clothes, and jewelry with no money in your bank account. I am not judging if you do not have money in your bank account, however trying to convince others that you do with “stuff” when you don’t is where I am confused. Even so, who wants to look cheap. I know I don’t! How do you achieve not looking cheap without breaking the bank? I am going to share with you how to look expensive without going bankrupt!
1. Fit is it!
Knowing your size in all garments is extremely important! Wearing things that are way too big or way too small can automatically make you look cheap. Some people I am sure will disagree, but I SAID WHAT I SAID, lol! You may run into cases where because of your body type, a garment does not fit properly. That is where is a tailor comes in, getting clothes tailored to your body type is sure-fire way up-level your look. With that being said, whatever way you wanna do it, pay attention to fit!
Black and White Always Win!!!
I LOVE BLACK AND WHITE! You should too, lol! When you want to look expensive, this an easy way to do so. You only go wrong with these colors when the fit is not right! Whether it’s everyday wear or a night out on the town, black and white turn heads, PERIOD!!
Dupes are ok, fakes are NOT!!
I am a big believer in dupes, but fakes are not! What I mean is you can find something that looks very similar to an expensive piece, that works. However, if you find a piece that is supposed to be the same as the expensive piece and it has the same looking labels and symbols, then NO! To add to that, if its all in white, black, grey or maybe an earth tone color, that makes it even better.
Mixing earth tones with a neutral is a go!!!
Mixing one earth tone with a neutral can be luxe in most cases. I particularly love browns with whites or creams. It screams expensive but some simple and chic at the same time!
Dress up denim!
Denim is not always something that can be made to look expensive. Darker colors in denim that are not whitewashed, distressed or bleached are normally go-to’s for expensive looks. You can add a blazer too for an additional touch of luxe to the look. You do not have to spend an arm and a leg for denim. However, the cheaper the jean the cheaper the quality, keep that in mind.
