Looking expensive isn't a goal I would focus on but more so feeling confident while looking well put together should be. We love a good high-end look, but we don't always have the money to splurge on luxury items. The good news is you can achieve a pricey appearance without spending a fortune. Check out our tips for pulling off an expensive-looking outfit without blowing your budget.
A great blazer automatically dresses up any outfit and makes anything you wear look expensive. Pair a blazer with jeans and heels for a casual chic look. You can pair this same blazer with joggers and bodysuits, or even a dress for added sophistication. A blazer is one of the most versatile pieces you can own. It can easily be dressed up or down and be worn year round. Always go for a blazer over a jacket.
3. All Black
The easiest way to look expensive is to wear black. All black creates a sleek, elegant, and luxurious look. Add a blazer or a coat on top to finish the outfit. An all-black look is also a great way to create a high end look without spending a lot of money. Black is always in style and it's very slimming too. Add some accessories like sequined shoes or a glitter clutch for an extra boost of glamour. The trick is to keep things monochromatic with different shades of black and grey and add in interesting textures like satin, chiffon, velvet or leather for depth.
Diamond stud earrings are another way to create a high end look that won't break the bank. Diamond studs can be found in a variety of sizes and prices, so you don't have to spend a fortune on them. The larger the diamond is, the more expensive it will be but you shouldn't feel that you need to buy the largest diamond available either because smaller diamonds can be just as beautiful as larger ones. Add some jewelry to make your outfit pop! If you are going for an all black look, diamonds are a good way to make your outfit more interesting.
5. Less Is More
Another thing to keep in mind when trying to create a high end look is that less is actually more. The saying "less is more" definitely applies when trying to create a high end look on a budget. Instead of piling on accessories and makeup, try doing the opposite and see how it turns out. You might be surprised!
