How To Dress On A Budget And Still Look Amazing!

We have always been a firm believer that you do not need to spend an entire month’s pay check to look your best. What’s more, you can look just as dazzling, sophisticated and chic with an item that you bought for $10.00. We all know of women who are all about dressing all things designer from head to toe. While this is no crime it is our opinion that it is a bit of overkill and unnecessary. Of course we don’t rule out completely the opportunity to spoil yourself with a designer piece on those desired occasions but budget fashion can exude just as much glam magnetism.

Here are a few easy tips to keep in mind to turning your budget purchases to designer looking territory.

1. Stock up on the basic, staple pieces

Don’t overlook the staple pieces that work wonders to your look. These staple items include basic tees, singlets, good quality denim jeans, a fitted and tailored skirt and/or dress to name a few. They are the building blocks to your look. You can mix these basic pieces with well invested blazers or pants and look ultra chic. Sometimes it is the simplistic looks such as a basic white tee teamed with a pair of skinny jeans and a designer handbag to make you look all designer-y. Check out our lookbook below.

2. Choose neutral & earth tones over brights and neons

These colors include;

  • black
  • white
  • gray
  • cream
  • tan
  • olive

The reason why these colors are timeless and fail proof is because of their sleekness factor. They are easily coordinated with one another, pastels, brights, prints and patterns making them ultra versatile and chic. These colors are the building basis and indispensable for any woman’s wardrobe, whether you are casual and laid back or trendy and adventurous with the fashion styles. The power of these colors are in it’s versatility and will ensure you will look elegant effortlessly.

3. Simplicity in handbags/clutches

A simple, no fuss handbag or clutch can go a long way in creating an overall image to make you look sophisticated and chic. It’s a simple piece of accessory that really contributes to your look. Clutches are a great accessory to pair with a day or evening outfit and really compliment your outfit.

4. Catch the sales

Who doesn’t love a good sale? You can be shopping for sales and get clothing at discounted prices all year round by a couple of savvy shopping tactics such as shopping at the end of season rather than the start of season, sample sales and sign up to online newsletters to be alerted of when a sale will be on or specials or discounts offered to members. Most retailers send regular email newsletters to their subscribers offering discounts on a weekly or monthly basis so it’s a great way for you to be alerted of the specials without having to go look for it. Brilliant.

5. Find a good tailor

Most people wouldn’t think it but having a good tailor can work miracles to your outfits to make you look so much more sophisticated and emulating designer styles. Have you noticed how the designer pieces looks immaculately form fitting and if you have ever tried it on, fits like a dream? Of course, it comes with the designer price tag. Just having your tailor taking in specific areas such as the shoulders, armpits and at the waist can really make a difference in the price value of your outfit.

What’s Hot: All White Trend

Summer is just around the corner (if you’re in the Southern hemisphere) and everyone is excitedly packing away their winter wardrobes and bringing out their summer gear to play. We’re pretty over the gloomy days, cold winds and wet weather. Bring on summer!

One of the hottest trend this summer that is wearing all white head to toe. Some color advocate fashionistas may believe all white outfits are rather conservative and plain, wearing white is brave. Contrary to belief, wearing all white will make you stand out. Amongst the sea of blacks, monochromes, prints and colors, the all white outfit is simple a block of chic and sophistication. The all white look is also fabulous to wear all season round and as trends come and goes, white will remain effortlessly sophisticated, sassy and ultra polished.

All Over White: HOT

White also accentuates your curves and flaws more evidently, so it’s not a pick for those with uncertainties about unfavored body parts. Further, food and drink sources are the enemies for the day.

Celebs Are Loving All White

While wearing all white is pretty fail-proof there are certain ways in which you can style wearing all white to looking ultra chic and refreshing. Here are five top tips for nailing the all white look.

1. White + lace

The combination of white and lace merely speaks timeless feminine and sophistication style. Lace channels that ladylike sexiness like no other fabric whilst making a chic statement. Lace comes in many varieties of sheerness so experiment up with the lace transparencies.

So chic…white lace

2. White + transparency

You’re probably not going to go all out sheer like that on the catwalk but do embrace the sheer side of all white transparency for the season. While this look is runway worthy, it isn’t practical for or is a pick for everyday outfit pick. It would be a sensible choice to opt for oueces that show just the right amount of transparency that you are comfortable with. Accessorize with minimalist silver jewellery and accessories to keep the look chic and flawless.

3. White + skin

Show some skin to break up the all white and add the extra appeal of feminine sexiness. See the celebs below totally rocking the all white look trend. Hot as anything!

Their lives are so well publicized that it seems in the midst of Miley’s current bada$$ behavor is the early signs of a meltdown, just as Britney had.

The Four Universally Flattering Clothing Colours

Have you ever noticed some women are always so impeccably styled? From the fashion trends they rock, to their chic and million dollar style? Everything seems so perfectly coordinated.

Have you perhaps noticed their choices of colors of their clothing pieces?

Some colors tend to suit some people better than others as a result of their skin tone and hair color. By choosing the right color to enhance your skin and hair shade, you will naturally and effortlessly compliment the rest of your look.

Some colors work for all skin and hair tones because they lay in the middle of the color spectrum, meaning they have the perfect balance of the warm and cool shades.

Here are four clothing colours that are universally flattering on any skin colour or hair shade.

Flattering color 1:  Eggplant purple

There are many shades of purple and all beautiful in their own rights. The “perfect purple” is the eggplant purple. It is a very versatile shade like black and navy but is a more exciting . It makes a great alternative to the conventional blacks and should also form as a wardrobe staple color.

purple-cocktail-dress

Flattering color 2: Red

Whilst being one of the most universally flattering clothing colors, it is not always the color of choice.  Red is a bold color and demands attention, and gets it. The color red being associated with confidence, sexiness and attention is considered a flattering colour because it the central color of the color spectrum. A very bright and bold colour it compliments every skin tone and hair color, therefore making it a great color to have in your wardrobe to dress up or down, day or night.

Flattering color 3: Teal

On the color spectrum teal sits directly opposite pink. What this means is that opposite colors compliment each other beautifully. When you wear a teal colored clothing item, it will naturally enhance the healthy pink flush of your cheeks for a beautiful and natural feminine look. Besides being a stunning color that suits everyone it is a color that can be worn all year around. Unlike it’s sister counterpart, turquoise – is usually more worn and preferred as a summer look and color to relect the fun factor.

Flattering color 4: Blush rose

Blush rose is a shade between light pink and peach as the name rightfully describes. And yes, grown women can still wear pink without looking like they hadn’t stepped out of their childhood years. You can wear this beautiful color and still look sophisticated. Blush rose is more of a neutral color than it is a pastel which is versatile to go with any other clothing color combination. Not only does blush rose look fabulous on every skin tone, it highlights the skin tone’s natural flush to make you glow when wearing it.
