How to Make Clothes Look Expensive

There are times when you have to style on a budget, but doesn’t mean that you can’t look like a million bucks. For as long as I can remember, there has been a huge misconception about dressing and making your clothes look expensive. How do we make clothes look expensive? Many ladies believe that they won’t look classy and expensive unless they buy really expensive clothing or accessories. I don’t blame them as looking expensive is usually associated with expensive brands.

I have done a lot of experimenting with my outfits, accessories and grooming, and I have discovered 6 ways you can make your clothes look expensive.

 

Develop a sophisticated carriage

I know that this tip will come as a surprise to you, but the way you wear your clothes plays a huge role in how expensive you look. If you wear your clothes and walk around with a slouch, no matter how expensive the clothes you put on are, you won’t look classy at all.

The secret is in the way you carry yourself. Walk with your head held high and full of confidence. Even with the simplest of all clothing can look very appealing if you wear it with an air of confidence.

 

Make your clothes look expensive with Accessories

The smallest item can make the biggest difference. If you want your clothes to look expensive, then you need to choose your accessories wisely.

Gold accessories can make any outfit look expensive. Pearl necklaces, earrings and bracelets have the same powerful effect. You can also put on large jewellery for that flattering look.

 

Go for black

Don’t under-estimate the power of the colour black. Black outfits are characterized as formal attire. Let’s face it, black looks expensive, whether you wear a black dress, black skirt or a black blouse.

The best thing about black is that it is simple and it goes with anything. It also enhances the beauty of your accessories against the black. So if you wear anything black, you can never go wrong.

Stick to classic pieces

Sometimes we get carried away thinking that looking expensive means wearing more clothes than usual. The truth is that you don’t need to go too far or think too hard to look expensive.

Classic pieces like a collared blouse tucked in a black pencil skirt or a maxi dress in a pastel colour can make you look expensive.

 

Have your clothes tailored

Not every outfit comes out perfect. And sometimes with some tweaks here and there, you can make your outfits look fabulous.

Fitting clothing that shows your shape makes your clothes look expensive. Adding a couple of simple embellishments or removing some of the parts that are not necessaries could make the biggest change in your outfits.

 

Keep your makeup and nails neutral

Aside from dressing well, accessorizing and proper carriage, neutral makeup and nails can make you look expensive. You may think that it may not make much of a difference, but that’s not true. Your makeup and nails all have a role they play in your final look.

 

What do you think of these style tips? Do you have any tested and tried tip of making your clothes look expensive?

 

 

 

 

Freelancers are Happy

It’s been a couple of years since I left my 9-to-5. Although I have no regrets about starting my own freelance business, there are days when I wonder how life would have still have been like if I had remained in my 9-to-5. For many people, transitioning from a 9-to-5 to being a freelancer can be scary. There are various reasons for this. But the question is, would remaining in your 9-to-5 make you happy? Is this something that you would be willing to do for the rest of your life? Are freelancers happy?

 

Are Freelancers Happy Image

 

 

Many freelancers are enjoying being able to run their own businesses from the comfort of their homes and being in control of their finances. They love being able to travel whenever they want and still be able to catch up on work. However, majority of freelancers/self-employed work on their own at home, which can be very quite and lonely. If you need a buzzing office environment to work, the whole idea of doing your own thing may not be for you just yet.

Although I can’t speak for all the freelancers out there, I can say from my experience that I am a lot happier than I was in my 9-5. Here are some of the reasons why –

 

Freelancers are happy because they have flexible schedules

I have more time to do what I want. I can work day or night. I do have deadlines for my clients, but I am not tied to fixed schedules. I don’t have opening hours nor closing hours. I can work at anytime and anywhere, which is the best part of being a freelancer. You actually get to work in more relaxed conditions.

 

Freelancers are happy because they can determine their income

Traditional workers have to work extremely hard in order to earn a promotion that will give them a raise in their paycheck. And if you’ve ever worked at a 9-to-5 that can take years to attain.

The good news is that freelancers don’t ever have to worry about facing that problem. If I want to raise my income, I raise my rates, develop new income streams or pitch to more potential clients. The level of my income is in my hands, kind of. I can choose to earn as much as I want, so long as I put in the work and market my services.

 

Freelancers are happy because they get to spend more time with their loved ones

Now this is a biggie for me. I remember when I was working in my 9-to-5, and I remember working very late. I even on some weekends and bank holidays. Now that I am a mum, I can’t imagine working those hours. It just won’t work. I respect people who are happy to work long hours and all, but it is just not a lifestyle I can afford right now.

With my business, I get to enjoy the opportunity to be with my family and still keep the business up and running.

 

Freelancers are happy because they can positively impact others

Most freelancers are mentors to a host of other upcoming freelancers. As they teach people how to start and run their own businesses, they begin to impact in the lives of those people. There’s nothing as fulfilling as being able to touch the lives of people who will better their own world. It is one of the best feelings ever!
