Today I’d like to give you a little guide on how to look like you are wearing high-end clothes when in reality you can only afford clothes from high street shops! Don’t get me wrong, I love high-street affordable clothes. As a fashion blogger, I love creating fresh trendy outfits and sharing them with you on my blog as well as wearing new outfits to the events. I’m so meticulous with my style, that I can’t go to different events in the same outfit. But how to afford to have different looks for different occasions and look like you are wearing expensive clothes?
When it comes to fashion, the insiders of the industry often aware of the trends at least half a year before the trend hits the stores. Be smart, watch fashion shows online on Youtube or connect to live catwalk shows if you are not able to get to the Fashion Week. This way you will be able to analyse trends and get ready for the upcoming season in advance and without panic. When you have some time to prepare, it’s easy to make clothes alterations, add details to what you already have in your wardrobe. What do you think is cheaper: Moschino leather jacket with badges and applications or faux leather jacket bought from Zara decorated with some cool badges bought on Ebay?
I’ve always found it very easy to find an expensive looking pair of shoes at high-street shops. For some reason, in UK affordable brands really make good shoes. (it’s great!) And the prices are fantastic! Moreover, it’s easy to find comfortable shoes, even with heels. Almost entire shoe collection of mine was bought at the price of £5-40. You will be surprised what hidden gems you can get on sales. Go for simple models or the models of shoes that you would like to wear for a couple of seasons. The silver shoes I’m wearing are from Zara, I bought them for about £25-30 and absolutely love this pair. They look like Gucci leather crossover sandals, at least they were inspired by this stunning design. Browse, browse, browse is my motto!
I’m not going to lie. In my opinion handbag is the only part of the outfit you should really invest in. It’s quite complicated to find an affordable bag that will keep the shape and look expensive. I don’t own many bags. I only buy them when I have a spare budget and the time is right. Some of my handbags are bought from pre-owned clothes shops. If you still can’t afford anything near to a high end, I would suggest going for a tote bag. I find tote bags look very sophisticated and elegant. Choose bags made of thicker materials, because they keep the shape better. Which is always great!
SHOP THE LOOK
These are my top 3 style tips for looking like you are wearing expensive clothes when in fact no! Of course, you should still look for bargains, shop on sales, go to second hand and charity shops, consider buying cotton-like fabrics as they look the best at high street shops, keep your clothes clean. But I wanted to share my personal fashion tips that you might not have heard about before. I hope you have found this little article useful! Let me know in the comments below.
