I’ll let you in on a fashion-insider secret. Looking expensive doesn’t have to come down to spending like it. In fact, more often than not, faking a luxurious-looking outfit has little correlation with how much money was actually spent on each piece to pull it together. You can wear head-to-toe designer and not look particularly elevated just as easily as you can wear head-to-toe affordable brands and still achieve that rich-looking vibe. Yep, it all comes down to the details. And let me ask you this: Who wouldn’t want to make their dollar work smarter instead of harder?
As I’ve mentioned before, elevated and expensive-looking fashion staples are my jam, so I’m going to share a few things to look out for when you’re shopping if you want people to assume your budget is double or triple what it actually is. Think of these as your fashion cheat codes. Which fabrics, colorways, and details do I recommend looking out for? I’ve nailed down six, to be specific, and conveniently, our very own Who What Wear Collection is chock-full of them. So in addition to highlighting why I find each of them to be so effective, I’ll be pointing you in the direction of the exact pieces I would recommend shopping from the line to maximize your purchasing power.
