Raise your hand if you know someone obsessed with their personal image for no good reason. We all like to look good and splurge in what makes us feel the best. The thing is, a big wallet won't buy you style, no matter what people may believe. If you spend a ton of money on a dress and still you don't feel your very best, then it's time to reevaluate where your style is heading and if you're being true to yourself. What does it mean when they say that an outfit looks "cheap"? Is it the fabric or the cut? I think it is a murky word to use when it comes fashion, so i'm not going to go there. Instead, i'll share my experience on how I make the most of my outfits without having to spend a fortune. Yes, you can be chic, glamorous, and elegant, you just need to keep an eye open for the following:
Keep it clean
The key for an upgraded look is keeping it clean and tidy. I know it might take some extra time, but iron your clothes so that they doesn’t look messy and scruffy. Make sure your clothes don’t have any stains, rips, or loose threads. These simple elements can make a difference in your whole look. Another great piece of advice, especially if you have pets, is to carry a lint roller with you so you can take any hair or fluff from your clothes. All of this applies to your shoes as well; these can get very dirty with almost everything, so before going out make sure they’re clean.
Pay attention to details
The key to a chic and sophisticated look is to look fresh. Make sure your nail polish isn't chipped and that your hair is styled according to the look you're going for. I am all for the messy bun but just make sure your hair is clean. Style isn't about clothes, it's about good health routines.
Buy pieces you can combine with multiple outfits
Basic pieces are a must for a chic look. If you independent statement pieces then it'll be difficult to piece them together as a complete outfit.
Get the perfect fit
Yes, please! This is basically a general rule in fashion. Your clothes must fit you like a glove. Actually, one of the easiest ways to make an outfit look sloppy is by wearing clothes that don't fit. Most stores have tailoring service so don’t hesitate to fix your new jeans, you know getting a pair with the perfect length is an odyssey.
Get some nice accessories
You don’t have to buy the most expensive and exclusive jewelry to have nice accessories; it’s just a matter of knowing what things look nice and match well with your look. You can accessorize your looks with nice scarves or even simple fantasy jewelry made with special metals or threads that can upgrade your look.
Blazers and jackets can make the difference
There are classic blazer and jacket cuts that will never be out of fashion. These are an essentials in everybody’s wardrobe and if you take good care of them, these pieces can make you look flawless for a long time.
Fashion is all about knowing what works for you. You can spend millions every day by buying the latest trends and still look like a copy. Style is owning your own taste and going for it.
