Creating a Supermodel Look on a Budget

If you are someone who has flipped through countless Vogue magazines or watched endless amounts of runway shows, then you know the dreadful feeling of looking through your own closet only to find the same old jeans, shirts and dresses in there. It can be hard to look your best when you're on a budget, but that doesn't mean you should give up. There are a lot of ways that you can create a high-fashion look, as long as you are creative and thrifty. Here are some tips as to how you can look like a million bucks, without breaking the bank.

Pair Bargain Finds With Your Basics
Aside from the signature little black dress, there are a few staple items that you should have in your closet that will be the major building blocks of your outfits. Such standard items include a tailored black blazer, dark denim mid rise jeans, a white cotton blouse, black pants and a non-black cocktail dress that you can wear out for last minute events. These basics will make up an important part of your wardrobe, so you will want the best your money can buy. By stocking up on these basics, you will automatically have something to wear with cute and trendy clothes that you come across while bargain hunting.

Don't Pay More if You Can Get Away With It
Basics that come in neutral shades such as black, grey and beige can still look expensive even if they're not. If you pair them with something that is more tailored or that stands out from the neutral tones, you can look high fashion without spending a fortune. Certain basics will always look chic no matter where you buy them, such as black cigarette pants from Target or a Pea Coat from Uniqlo. You can also turn summer outfits into winter ones with the addition of simple black opaque tights worn with ballet flats or boots, and a lightweight turtleneck sweater. Even throwing on a blazer over your t-shirt and jeans ensemble will smarten up a casual weekend look.

Learn to Accessorise
To make it easy to be fashionable every day, try trading in your trainers for ballet flats, and add a silk scarf to your everyday outfit. Even if you are wearing your basic dark denim jeans and a t-shirt, adding a scarf or a hat will add a hint of interest to the outfit. Having a stylish pair of shoes and a chic bag will also take a regular outfit to a higher level. Other accessories that you use every day are worth splurging on, as they are great for adding a finishing touch to your outfits. Look for flashy bracelets, unique earrings, high fashion rings and a stylish belt to help spruce things up.

Learn How to Sew
If you are having a hard time finding the fashion items that you want on a budget, why not try and make it yourself? People who know how to sew can take a thrift store find and make it into something that looks high fashion. Not only will this help you save money, but your wardrobe will also be uniquely personalised.

There are plenty of tricks and tips for looking simply fabulous on a budget. So really there’s no excuse for not looking your very best, even if your piggy bank is looking rather  empty.
