Get it tailored
A reliable tailor on hand is priceless!! By getting your clothes altered to fit every nook and cranny of your body, you will automatically make your clothes look more expensive. Bachelor/Bachelorette alum Emily Maynard has always admitted to buying inexpensive clothes and taking them to the tailor before she ever wears them. It might look like it fits in the fitting room, but you will be shocked when you see the difference after taking it to a professional!
Make sure everything is freshly pressed
Take the extra 10 minutes in the morning to iron or steam your clothes. It helps you look more put together and will show off your outfit without people noticing wrinkles.
Add gold accessories
There’s something about gold that screams royalty! Take your outfit to the next level by adding gold accessories.
Dress in tonal colors like all white or all black
It’s so very chic to wear all black or all white. Add a statement necklace for a pop of pizzazz.
Add a belt and tuck in for polish
Belts automatically make you look more put together and better accessorized! Tucking in your shirt will make you look so much more polished also. Belts also look great with dresses, skirts, and especially maxi skirts. Try it next time!
Beauty matters: Polished hair and makeup elevate any look
I can’t stress this point enough! You’ll overall elevate your look when your hair is done nicely and your makeup is done cleanly.

Dress up your denim
Jeans are our best friend! Good news– we can still wear them when we’re trying to be fancy! Add a tailored blazer or a nicer top. It will polish the jeans and offset the casual style of the bottoms. Add some heels for a very polished look!
Buy timeless outerwear
A nice trench or a classic pea coat will really take your outfit to the next level. Plus, they never go out of style so you don’t have to feel guilty spending extra money on a nice quality one!
Match your shoes and your bag
I’ve always wondered the answer to this question! Match your shoes to your handbag, not to your top. It will give your look a feel of sophistication.
