Have you ever been scrolling through your favs social media and thought…..I love what she’s wearing but I know it must cost a fortune? Sis, it doesn’t take bags to pop nice tags. We all love to look our best but we don’t always have to break the bank.
In today’s world, we have easy accessibility to more unique statement pieces as well as inspired styles than ever before. Staying snatched…. beat….and glamorous has never been easier. We have a few secrets so, come with us on this journey to find out how to look lux AF.
The first step to achieving a lux look is to step out in some killer heels hunty. We know that some of our sweetiez crave comfort so, we're not saying that you cant achieve a high-end look sporting flats. Heels just add an element of sophistication and not to mention....they make your calves look AMAZING!!!
Every girl should have at least one pair of what we like to call "statement heels" in her closet. Statement heels are heels that you may have splurged on that can add a high-end element to any inexpensive outfit. When we purchase statement heels, we like to purchase them in muted colors such as black or nudes so that they can be worn with just about anything. Your entire outfit could have only cost $40. Adding statement heels with it will pull your outfit together giving it an all over high-end flare.
All About That Bag
Just like with a pair of statement heels, we feel every girl needs at least one "statement bag". You can add a pop to an inexpensive outfit by combining a statement bag with your statement heels or you can choose to wear one statement piece to attract conversation to your outfit.
If you choose to go high-end with your statement bag there's no need to blow all of your coins. We love pre-loved items. There are so many places online where you can purchase consignment bags that are gently used and may even come with their original boxing/packaging and receipt. Sites such as fashionphile.com and therealreal.com offer tons of different bags that are often in very good condition.
If you aren't the type of girl whose into designer items, no problem. You can still achieve a lux look with designer inspired items. There are so many brands who are creating dupes of popular items that look great but are half of the price.
Put That On Ice
Nothing screams lux like a few gorgeous pieces of jewelry to add to your ensemble daaarrrling. When styling jewelry with a lux outfit, you don't need to do too much. You can wear some small dainty pieces that still command attention and offer a cute but sophisticated glow to your look. You can also go bold with a colorful collar necklace and statement earrings.
Jewelry all in all pulls your look together and to pull off a lux look we highly recommend a nice wrist watch. Yes, Siri can give you the time on your phone when you ask but a classic watch on the wrist gives off a polished look.
Dressed to Impress
The icing on the cake is that lux outfit. There's no need to splurge on expensive items unless that's how you prefer to spend your coins. Our formula is less = more. You can find a $30 dress and finesse her into looking like you paid $300. It's all about the quality and fit of the outfit. Here's what we mean. In order for your outfit to give "I'm expensive" you have to make sure that the material and fabric of your outfit isn't too thin and see through.
We've all seen dresses, blazers, or pants where upon touching the material you discover that it's very thin and light weight. This is an absolute NO NO. Just because something is inexpensive doesn't mean it has to look and feel cheap. Also, you must make sure that your clothing fit to your shape. There's nothing worse than a pair of saggy pants or an ill fitting clunky blazer. Nicely ironed slacks and a fitted blouse always complements any shape.
Also, don't be afraid to try shapes and bold patterns. Dare to be different while turning the world into your runway.
