How to look like you have a million dollar wardrobe.
How to dress like a million dollars but not actually spend a million dollars-- that has been the burning question for every enviable fashionista since the beginning of time. We all desire to look rich, sophisticated and utterly chic but when you have champagne taste and a beer budget, having a closet full of couture is nearly impossible.
If you are just beginning to build a chic wardrobe or if you are looking for a few signature pieces, here are our top fashion tips on how to transform your wardrobe to project millionaire vibes.
Millionaire Fashion Tip #1
Invest in classic pieces first. I am talking a great pair of dark jeans, neutral colored knits and classic camel trench coat. These items are always on trend and can easily be mixed with statement pieces in the future.
Millionaire Fashion Tip #2
Be polished. Messy doesn’t equal “wealthy” so be sure that you appear polished, in other words your clothes should be wrinkle free and should fit your body. Also your hair and makeup should be done and neat.
Carry a minimalist, real leather tote or purse that can be carried every day. When buying a bag, focus more on the style then on trend. If you want trendy, do it with accents not an investment piece bag.
Millionaire Fashion Tip #4
Shoes can make or break your outfit, don’t underestimate the power of footwear.. For Fredrik Eklund, a self-made millionaire and the star of Bravo's "Million Dollar Listing," shoes make or break an outfit.
"Everyone notices your shoes," he writes in his book "The Sell." "What's on your feet can either give you a strong leg to stand on or hobble an outfit."
When building a shoe wardrobe, begin with these essentials:
Nude leather heels
Classic ballet flats both in neutrals and colors that pop (our favs are pink and bright blue)
And finally our bonus tip if you want to look sophisticated accessorize with a few statement necklaces. We love the pieces from JCrew this season.
