Wouldn’t it be nice if you could dress rich even if you have a limited clothing budget? Fortunately, by following a few simple wardrobe strategies you can have a wardrobe that looks like a million dollars for much less. Here are some tips on how to dress rich without spending a fortune:
1.Choose monochromatic colors schemes.
Monochromatic colors always look classy and elegant. Plus, solid colors tend to subtract pounds from your frame, making you look slimmer. An added bonus is that you’re less likely to get tired of solid colored clothing as opposed to prints.
If you want to dress up your monochromatic outfits, try adding some interesting jewelry.
2.Wear dark colors.
Have you ever noticed how many wealthy people who can afford to dress rich wear black and navy blue? These colors tend to look appropriate for almost any occasion and add a certain level of refinement to your wardrobe.
3.Buy quality items from off-price sources
The value of a particular clothing item lies in how long it lasts and how many times you’re able to wear it. For that reason, don’t skimp on quality if you want to dress rich. Always choose a high quality fabric and a well made garment. If you can’t afford to buy the best quality, check out some off-price sources for high quality clothing including consignment shops, designer outlet stores and even your local Marshall’s store. Marshall’s stores often carry high end designer names at ridiculously low prices. It may take some searching, but you’ll often be rewarded with elegant items at great prices.
4.Go for the classics.
Don’t jump on board to every trend that comes along. People who dress rich often wear updated classic fashion items as opposed to the latest fad. If you want to update a look, try adding a scarf, interesting belt, or a piece of jewelry instead of rushing out to buy the latest hot fashion trend.
5.Buy quality items off season.
If you wait to purchase clothing at the end of a season, you can get some incredible bargains on quality designer clothing at your local department stores and even high end boutiques. Again, choose classic styles that will never go out of style.
6.Invest in an expensive purse.There’s no need to have a closet full of purses. Invest in one quality designer purse in black and carry it everywhere you go. If you choose a purse made of the highest quality material by a good designer, it can last for many seasons and will never go out of style.
