Do you shop a lot? Have the most expensive brands in your closet and still end up looking okay and not really expensive and elegant just like some Bollywood stars or the royalty.
If you are aiming for looking really polished and upmarket then here is a piece of good news. It's not about expensive clothes and a lot of money, it's just about how you use some simple tips to take your overall style from basic to classy.These simple rules can lift your style and make you look really expensive.
Invest in a Signature Pair of Sunglasses
Invest in a pair of sunglasses which really compliments the shape of your face. Stay away from the weird looking, too big or too small sunglasses. Go for something classic. Pick a sturdy frame in basic colours like a brown or black.
It is not necessary that your sunglasses have to make a hole in your pocket, pick a medium priced brand which looks great on you and is not screaming for attention. Please avoid hot pinks and jazzy colours or polka dot frames, those look far away from sophisticated.
Add a Gold or Silver Watch to your Look
A Gold or a silver watch adds a certain sense of 'expensive' to each outfit you wear. The watch does not have to be obnoxiously expensive. You can invest in a mid-level brand and pair it with your outfit daily.
One is enough. Don't buy 5 different watches to add to variety rather than getting one better-looking watch. Get that one pair of silver or Gold watch.
Try the trick and see the difference!
A Pair of Pumps
Pumps make an outfit look richer instantly but they are a nightmare to wear, especially for women with wide toes. Not all great fashion is practical. Here is how I deal with the 'heels'
Counting from my big toe, I tape my third and fourth toe with medical tape and that makes a huge difference to the comfort that I feel after wearing my pumps. You can wear pumps with skirts, jeans, pants and see how they make your outfit look expensive instantly. If you can't buy a lot of pairs, buy one in nude and one in black, you can pair them with anything.
Keep your nails nude and Makeup Natural
Have you ever seen anyone in the British royalty wearing bright pink or red nail paint? Maybe Never! because they are aiming for elegance. Stick to a neutral shade of nail paint or better still get a french manicure to achieve the look of elegance
Also stay far away from Dramatic makeup and bright colours of eyeshadow. Keep it light, neutral and fresh. Too much makeup takes the expensive look a notch down.
Take Care of the Skin and Hair
An hour of exercise gives your skin the glow it needs. Don't ignore the workout. Take care of your skin by eating right, wearing sunscreen, not smoking and most importantly exercising.
Style your hair, the out of bed look is great for those who are not wanting to look expensive or sophisticated. But if you want to look rich, shiny styled hair will work better.
