1. Make sure your clothes are properly
tailored and ironed.
As simple as this tip may seem, it is easy for
one to get carried away with fashion trends
and whatnot, and end up wearing ill-fitting
clothes. Having a tailor fit your clothes to
your perfect size goes a long way of making
your clothes look more expensive. This is
not primary school where parents bought
clothes a size bigger when their kids were
growing too fast. Also, never leave the
house without ironing or steaming your
clothes properly. Look sharp.
2. Change the fasteners.
Fasteners like buttons and zippers can
change the look of your clothes. The devil

There is just something about structural,
gilded extras — whether a bag or jewellery

may be wearing the most basic white tee
with jeans, but your statement watch or
strong metal bracelet, for instance, will
stand out and make the whole look seem
more expensive to people. Invest in
attention-grabbing trend items that will
become the focus of your outfit.
5. Keep it simple.
You know the saying that “more is less, and
less is more”. This should apply to the
clothes you wear. Expensive clothes are
mostly simple and well put together. One
strong colour from top to bottom not only
elongates and slims your figure, it also
makes your clothes look thoughtfully well-
Tip : Keep your head high and
shoulders straight. Regardless of what you
wear, everyone has their own personal
style and the way you carry yourself is a
large part of your style. So, stay confident!
