Look Fabulous for Less

imageAre you looking to upgrade your look, but you’d rather not shell out to a ton of money? There are a lot of ways to look expensive for less:

  • Find Your Style – Subscribe to your favorite fashion magazine or blog – whichever most closely reflects how you aspire to look. Use it each month to get inspiration – or find ways to repurpose pieces that are already in your closet.
  • Pick Up Cheap Trends – Trends come and go, which means they’re not worth a big investment. Fortunately stores like H&M and Forever 21, or in shoe-of-the-month services like JustFab or Shoe Dazzle carry inexpensive trends. Spending as little as $100 per season will help you feel more confident.
  • Mix High and Low – While you’re choosing a few trends to embrace each season, try to mix them with your more expensive items or accessories. Celebrities mix their expensive handbags with a $10 dress and you can too!
  • Borrow – Renting items for a special event is not a new idea, but the Internet has taken it to a new level. With Rent the Runway for example, you can borrow a $620 Badgley Mischka gown for $70 in two sizes, and when your done, just drop it in the mail and they’ll take care of dry cleaning.
  • Shop High-End Consignment – Do not, I repeat, do not shop at a thrift shop like Goodwill; instead, find a designer consignment store. If you don’t have one nearby, sites like ThreadUP sell gently used designer garments.

So even if you’re on a budget and busy as a bee, you can still look fabulous! Looking for more tips? Check out Become Gorgeous or subscribe to the daily looks at FitFabFunMom.
