Keep scrolling to discover the easiest tricks that’ll make your outfit appear more expensive than it really is—and then shop some pieces if you're still in the mood to spend.

Have you noticed the biggest denim trend right now is a frayed hem? Avoid spending big and take to an old pair of straight leg jeans and snip the hem. The fringing will come.

If your pants have belt hoops, and you're tucking in, add the belt. It shows that you gave thought to your outfit by adding a finishing touch.

Sleeves are big news this season. Flared, ruched, and long. Let yours poke out under your jacket to get the same look for less.

There's no use having a closet full of scarves and never using them. Adjust the way you'd normally wear it, and get a little more inventive.

So you'll have to spend a few dollars here, but perfect-fitting pants are a non-negotiable. 

What's the point in having everything else right, when your shoes are so wrong. Keep them looking brand new and the rest of your look will, too.

When you're having those morning moments and you can't even, tonal is a safe choice. It always looks expensive. Our advice? Pick a neutral tone.
