You do not need to buy anything new to give your wardrobe an expensive-looking edge. Instead, get that luxe look nailed with our expert consultancy on how to style your way to a better-looking wardrobe…
Choose styles with small, intricate details.
Search for minor details to make your high-street buy a standout. For example, this blouse includes simple detailing to the shoulder, making it look more worthy of a designer price tag than its affordable high-street one!
Tie a printed scarf around the handle of your bag
Accessories add an edge & a simple styling trick like tying a scarf around the handle of your bag could be the difference between looking high end & high street.
Opt for pewter over silver
Embellishment & sparkle lift every day, and pewter always looks much more expensive than silver.
Don’t ignore the ‘classic’ buys
A classic striped shirt with an excellent cut, fabric & neat front pockets looks the business. Are you sure you are not carrying a designer?
Choose indigo denim
Owing to modern technology, fabric and the high street are picking up the pace of denim. As a result, Indigo instantly looks more finished, and this knee-length skirt falls at exactly the ideal point.
Try suede instead of leather
The high street makes great suede pieces at a fraction of the price of its designer counterparts. So take advantage & embrace this season’s must-have texture and consistency.
Choose simple, structured bags
Choose styles with print on the front and back
Prints should continue around the body & match up completely to the side seams; ones that do not are a dead giveaway.
Add some woven leather or fringe detailing
Steer towards designer accents; lattice- leather spells high-end.
Match your shoes to your bag
Finish the appearance with shoes that echo the lattice- effect. Matching your shoes with your bag is still quite definitely a ‘thing.’’
Wear one block color
Tone-on-tone color immediately spells luxury the high street is especially good at nude & putt shades. A bomber- elevates your style, but stick to simple designs to keep it looking sophisticated.
Choose structured pleats
Look for crisp, structured pleating inside heavyweight silk and crepe. Metallic skirts are having a fashion moment, & you can echo the designer styles easily on the high street.
