Ever wonder what it takes to prepare a celebrity for a walk down the red carpet? Hint: It involves a team of skilled professionals, an unrelenting attention to detail and the occasional all-nighter.
Take a look at the process of perfecting an outfit, along with a slew of insider tips you can apply to your own wardrobe to make everyday items look ultra-expensive.
Get it tailored.
Designers have the luxury of fitting clothes on models who are one specific size and shape. The average woman has much more average measurements, and therefore clothes are rarely a perfect fit right off the rack.
A dress that doesn’t fit your waist or a pair of pants that are a little too long can make even expensive clothes look dowdy and cheap. By investing $20 on tailoring a bargain shopping score, your clothes fit your body better, which automatically creates the sense of better quality.
Add a belt and tuck in for polish.
Insouciance is something we’re always pursuing in the style department, but in the case of looking like you know what you’re doing, tuck in any shirttails or a baggy sweater hem and cinch your waist with a chic belt for maximum impact.
One thing about trends is that, over time, they’ll fade away into the same place “Hammer Pants” and butterfly hair clips went to die. If you really want to make your clothes look more expensive, focus on purchasing classic pieces that never go out of style.
Dress in tonal colours like all white or all black.
Add gold accessories.
Add touches of gold to your outfit really elevates the look. I love lots of fine gold jewelry and a gold detail watch
Match your shoes and your bag.
