How to look expensive in democratic things
journalist, feminist and restless shopaholic
Be more legible in the matter of materials
Every time you go shopping in a democratic store, remember that you have "friends" and "enemies" there. We are talking about fabrics. Linen, thick cotton, heavy denim, artificial leather or suede always look expensive and presentable. Velvet, chiffon, viscose, thin cotton and polyester usually immediately give out their ignoble origin with giblets, therefore, things from them can be safely attributed to useless purchases.

Wear gold jewelry often
Yellow and pink gold have had such an excellent resume for thousands of years, that they and your image will make an order of magnitude more expensive. Only if you decide to wear more than three jewelry at once, then do not arrange a rainbow of colored stones and crystals.

With simple things, wear "complex" shoes
Each of us in the closet has dresses that are solo-looking so boring that they ask for things in the box for charity. And now try to add a pair of extraordinary or even frikovaty shoes to them and look at the result: together with red lipstick, it will come out fresh and stylish, as if you have just returned from Paris Fashion Week.

Decide on your range of pastel shades
Some people like a bit depressive Provencal tones: purple, lilac-gray, milky, smoky, and someone would rather classify themselves as fans of delicate powdery shades of beige and peach. We hurry to please you: both those and others look expensive, especially if the color is sustained exactly as muffled and deep, without an admixture of bright tone, as often happens with pastel pink or yellow.

Add a wide-brimmed hat and a bag of very dense skin
The latter is generally difficult to "spoil": even bags made of artificial leather for the price of a cup of coffee sometimes do not give out their price until you begin to carefully examine the entrails. And a hat as a smart accessory always adds elegance: try to test its effect with the most coarse sundress that you have in your possession, and see how the overall picture is changing for the better.

Do not part with trench until August
This key thing is now available in models for temperatures from –10 to +20, that is, for the Eastern European winter, our off-season and not too hot summer. The classic beige trench, as an ideal office worker, is good for both Burberry and H & M,so find yourself one for the spring, and the other light for the summer (but by no means short!), and half of the task called “I want to look expensive” has already been completed.

Look for things intellectual simplicity
"Golden" advice is doomed to be final. If you clearly know what you want exactly the effect of "I dress in boutiques," then persuade yourself to be an ascetic. On a sweater more than two shades? Does not fit! On the pants a lot of pockets, which just want to fill with everything you need? We carry them in the country. Is there a lot of seams, flounces and other details on the blouse or jacket? Leave for vacation. Overdo it better with miniature jewelery - thin chains, bracelets and earrings can be just a lot.
