9 ways to create a high end look that doesn't break the bank

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.

1. Statement Blazer

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. 
2.  A Satin Dress
One of the easiest ways to look high end, without spending a lot of money, is with a satin dress. A satin dress can be worn long or short and there are many choices available, including slip dresses and pajama style dresses. A pair of high heels will add even more glamour to the look. A satin dress can easily dress up any outfit, especially if you are going for an all black look. If you like to experiment with fashion, you can try wearing your satin dress as a top by pairing it with jeans or trousers.

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.
4. Jewelry

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!
6. Opt for Tailored Clothing
Tailored clothing, especially blazers and dresses, looks more expensive than clothing that's not tailored. That's because it fits you perfectly and is cut to your body shape. It also has clean lines and no loose ends hanging around. Tailoring can be expensive, but if you find a good tailor that can work with you on price and get the job done without it costing an arm and a leg, then it's totally worth it!
7. Invest in Luxury Basics
8. Wear high heels that are comfortable for you
High heels instantly upgrade any outfit from casual to chic and sophisticated in no time at all. They also add some height which makes the legs appear longer and slimmer.
9. Lipstick
If you want to be more daring, go for red or pink lipstick. These colors will make your face stand out and give you that high end look when wearing a natural beat.
