Are you always flicking through magazines, strolling through Bond Street and wondering how many Starbucks coffees you’d have to give up to afford those designer pieces? Instead of living off Cup A Soup for the forseeable future, here a few tips and tricks for you to look good… for less.
Know your body type and look for pieces that fit your body well. Shirts, trousers, co-ords all have that luxe appeal but the key is in the fit and tailoring. Zara is great place place for men and women for key pieces to see you from work to the dance-floor. If something is too long or too big, think about getting it tailored; a few YouTube tutorial videos could mean Saville Row could have some competition. You’ll be FIT in no time.
The key to looking ‘RICH’ is simplicity and investing in quality pieces rather than fast food fashion. Sure, we all may be tempted by those £2 T-shirts in Primark but let’s be real they come at a cost… and they don’t last long.
Find your style, remember less is more and always make sure your clothing is ironed and well pressed. If all else fails, who cares, be you and don’t despair.
