If your jewellery budget is, well, tight, we suggest opting for dainty jewellery rather than bulky costume pieces. Whether real or fake, simple and delicate jewellery will read more expensive and thoughtful than your typical statement piece.
2. Ditch the chain. The metal chains that come with inexpensive bags and hook on both sides can easily cheapen a look. We suggest ditching the chain and wearing the bag as a clutch for a sleeker, more sophisticated ensemble.
An easy (and free) way to look luxe is to wear a monochrome outfit. Whether it’s all black, white, or your favourite vibrant hue, sticking to one colour will tie your outfit together in a way that looks way expensive.
Breathe new life into an old mini or midi dress by layering it over a pair of jeans or trousers. We bet this will sell you on the look.

For some reason, every girl seems to have a sizeable scarf collection. Put your old (and new) scarves to use by wearing them in out-of-the-box ways such as around your wrist, head, or as a belt.
If you also have a collection of old, cheap belts that probably came attached to dresses and rompers, this is for you. Try knotting them, and you’ll be amazed how much more expensive they instantly look, along with your entire outfit.

Graphic T-shirts are one wardrobe staple where we can say, the older the better (just as long as there are no holes, of course). With a quick trip to your local thrift shop, you can score an amazing vintage one for as little as a few bucks. Wear it with everything from jeans to a tailored suit for a cool upgrade.
While perfectly tailored jeans are hard to pass on in a store, remind yourself that with just a few alterations, vintage jeans, less expensive styles, or pairs you already own can by tailored to fit perfectly.
