If your jewelry budget is, well, tight, we suggest opting for dainty jewelry rather than bulky costume pieces. Whether real or fake, simple and delicate jewelry will read more expensive and thoughtful than your typical statement piece.
2. Ditch the chain. The metal chains that come with inexpensive bags and hook on both sides can easily cheapen a look. We suggest ditching the chain and wearing the bag as a clutch for a sleeker, more sophisticated ensemble.
An easy (and free) way to look luxe is to wear a monochrome outfit. Whether it’s all black, white, or your favorite vibrant hue, sticking to one color will tie your outfit together in a way that looks way expensive.
Breathe new life into an old mini or midi dress by layering it over a pair of jeans or trousers. We bet this will sell you on the look.
For some reason, every girl seems to have a sizeable scarf collection. Put your old (and new) scarves to use by wearing them in out-of-the-box ways such as around your wrist, head, or as a belt.
Graphic T-shirts are one wardrobe staple where we can say, the older the better (just as long as there are no holes, of course). With a quick trip to your local thrift shop, you can score an amazing vintage one for as little as a few bucks. Wear it with everything from jeans to a tailored suit for a cool upgrade.
