Dressing like your favorite celebrity doesn’t have to cost a fortune. Celebrities may not shop in the same stores as you and I, but their style secrets are well within reach. Here are a few simple styling tips that will make you look like a celebrity without having to shell out an entire paycheck for an outfit.
Wear a jacket as a top instead of a shirt
Toss your button-down shirt and swap it out for your favorite leather jacket. Zipped or buttoned up, a jacket will make statement when worn in place of your shirt. Wear it with distressed jeans or your favorite pencil skirt for a more polished look. It instantly designates your look as unique. If you want a softer look, try a canvas utility jacket instead of the leather. Match the color of the jacket with the rest of your outfit for an easy monochromatic look or branch out with a bright pop of color.
Wear statement accessories
A statement accessory can really make an outfit stand out. Think of large earrings, a chunky necklace or an ornate belt. Bold accessories with everyday clothing make a great style statement. Try throwing on an oversized necklace with your favorite t-shirt and jeans. The key is to wear no more than two statement accessories at a time so that the outfit isn’t too busy.
Wear a single color
Another way to make a statement without breaking the bank is by wearing one uniform color. Wearing all black is always fashionable, but try thinking a little more outside of the box. Try an all-white look for spring or military green in the fall. Match not only your clothing but your shoes and handbag as well. Wearing one color will amp up your style and help you to stand out in a crowd.
Wear your sneakers with formal clothing
Try wearing your sneakers on a day when you have put a little more effort into your attire. Not only will your sneakers stand out, but you will too. It gives you the look of someone who is professional and stylish. Think of wearing a tailored skirt and top with a pair of casual sneakers. This unique look is a twist on the traditional work outfit.
These easy tips will help elevate your style without elevating your budget. The most important thing to remember is to be confident in whatever look you choose.
