5 guides to looking expensive on a budget
- Bling is always in
The first thing to remember is that anything that shines automatically looks expensive. It could be diamond studs, shimmer, Swarovski crystals, fake Swarovski crystals or even latex. As long as it shines, you’ll look like a million bucks.
One aspect often overlooked however is how much bling is too much. Never overdo the bling. If you’re wearing a 3-part outfit, make 1 or 2 parts blingy, and leave the last part plain. You’re a human being, not a solar panel.
2. Faux fur never fails
First of all, this look isn’t for everyone. Not everyone got on the faux fur train when it came down the tracks. But, if you get this right, people will think Beyonce’s your cousin. Okay!
Faux fur has this lush look that just looks expensive. You can rock it as a shawl, a jacket or even at the bottom of your sleeves. Once you hit the streets with this fashion statement, everyone will be staring. And you can take that to the bank!
