Many people are intimidated by how do you dress expensive looking men or women? While some extremely expensive fashion items scream style and sophistication, others scream casual style and am here to tell you (again, no, show you!). It’s not about how much you spend, but how you choose to dress your style and personal style.
Fashion isn’t a one size fits all, it’s actually very adaptable to everyone, no matter what their budget or style. There is no “one size fits all” fashion, so don’t feel like you have to stick to cookie-cutter clothes and outfits to make a fashion statement. You can pull off looking very elegant in very chic and casual styles. That’s the real key to making any fashion look classy and expensive looking!
Your wardrobe should consist of accessories to go along with your outfit. A great style for an evening out on the town might be a simple monochrome, black and white Chesterfield style dress, with a conservative but stylish belt, perhaps in a neutral color. Wear your hair up or down, wear your earrings or jewelry depending on the occasion, and don’t forget your shoes. If you are planning a night out, it’s always great to include a nice clutch and shoe collection to add some color and sparkle to your evening wardrobe.
When planning outfits for a more casual night out, a great style for the weekdays can be a solid color cotton shirt, dress pants and a pair of jean slacks, with a casual but trendy belt, perhaps in a neutral color. Nothing too over the top, nothing too casual, just dressy enough. You can jazz up this wardrobe by adding some fun accessories. A fun idea is wearing a brightly colored tie-dyed shirt, or adding a colorful belt to match. You could also layer a checkered skirt, or wear a colorful and patterned blouse under your jacket.
If you need a jacket to keep you warm on those chilly nights, look for a checkered leather or faux leather jacket in a dark color. Or if you are in town for business, you could invest in a business coat with a few pockets and a logo printed collar. The easiest way to accessorize with this sort of coat is with a simple pin, if you don’t want to wear a coat. For example, if you are wearing a black jacket, you could easily pin a white or beige ribbon across the front of your jacket. This is a great way to dress it up, but since this is usually a basic item, it’s best saved for special occasions or formal attire.
An elegant style of coat that never goes out of fashion is an oversized wool coat. You could find one in a dark color that will elevate any outfit. Of course, you’ll have to consider the height of your jacket, how long your arms are and whether or not you want a neutral or solid color. This is another situation where a neutral colored piece would work best since you don’t have to pick a contrasting color and then use it as the focal point of the outfit.
When you are shopping for clothes, you always want to stay within your budget. However, you don’t want to sacrifice fashion for practicality. In fact, the easiest way to dress stylishly while sticking to a budget is to buy many basic pieces, accessorize them with chic accessories and then pair these items with higher end or more expensive pieces that elevate the entire look. There are two options for you here: buy more expensive items in bulk, like coats and sweaters, and buy pieces separately that you can accessorize with.
How do you dress expensive looking women who often wear a simple jacket with a more expensive dress? One simple way to do this is to buy a plaid skirt and wear a plain, but sophisticated plaid coat over top. This combination can be used for a casual look, or worn with an evening skirt for a more formal occasion. If you were buying a simple, less expensive dress for her, you could accessorize with an elegant tailored jacket and carry a more structured bag to give the appearance that she is carrying more than she is.
