How To Look Expensive on a Budget



Now I'm in my 20s I had a think about my wardrobe. The likelihood is that I'm not going to grow anymore and I felt that now would be a good time to have a bit of a sort out. 
I guess I spent the majority of my teens trying to figure out what my style is and experimenting. Now I'm 20, I feel like I have my style pretty nailed down and I am pretty happy with it!


1. Colour Block

I am a huge lover of the classic look and feel like you can appear like you've spent a lot more money on your wardrobe when you really haven't. I am a student after all... Give me a cream jumper, pair of skinny jeans and camel coat any day! 
I feel a super easy way to look more expensive is block colours. Be it black, white, grey, white, navy. Whatever. Block colours will go with so much in your wardrobe. They can also so easily be dressed up or down, thus meaning you need fewer clothes, which means more space and less money spent. But that doesn't mean I'm going to shy away from prints. Quite often I am wary of prints, purely because I feel they can quite easily go out of style. So this brings me on to my second point...
 
2. Think smart

Clothes are not cheap. Even if you go to high street shops, you can easily spend a fair amount of money on not that much. So, think carefully about what you're going to buy. Basics, like t-shirts, long sleeve tops and bottoms are always needed, but think carefully about the cut and look, and in some cases the quality. It's all fair and good spending £3 on a t-shirt, but it is likely to get holes or look a little tattered quite quickly. With this in mind, sales are always a great tie to refresh your basics. Places like Zara and H&M are great places for good quality basics, especially in the sales! If you want to see my favourite January sales picks, click here

3. Accessories 

Accessories are a great way of lifting an outfit without doing that much or spending much money. From shoes to bags, the can lift an outfit so easily. I love black boots, especially at this time of year as they look good with everything and you can buy them from pretty much anywhereAt the moment, I am a huge fan of the silk scarf look, it looks so chic tied in a high ponytail and really doesn't have to cost an arm of a leg. The Aurora Store has some lovely prints and are all very well priced! Jewellery is also a fab way to life an outfit and you don't have to spend a huge amount of it. Accessorize is always great for timeless pieces that won't cost an arm and a leg.
