How to Make Cheap Clothes Look Expensive

Size up

Loose clothes contain a certain gracefulness, and when paired with other items can create a refined style. Tight clothes appear ill-fitted, cheap and worn-out.


Buy Blacks

Obvious clues that clothes are cheap can be hidden by dark colors. Nothing says chic like an all-black ensemble.



A basic white tee can be worn in a multitude of ways. With no wrinkles or just a good steam,

plain clothes can achieve boldness through their simplicity, giving the impression of a high-priced, luxury item.


Invest in Staples

A good investment can go a long way, especially when it comes to accessories. A black heel, small clutch, or simple earring fit any occasion, from a night out to a quick coffee run.


Touches of Texture

Subtle bits of texture add dimension to any look. Leather, denim, wool, fake fur, tweed— the options are endless.
