The Style Edit

Style doesn’t always need to come with the hefty designer price tag. Splurge on quality pieces you know you will wear over and over, mix those pieces with more affordable trend pieces. Here are a few simple tips for dressing your best on a budget:

luxe STYLE for less

Dress in dark colours

Darker clothing tends to appear more expensive. You can buy cheaper clothing in dark colours because the quality of fabric doesn’t show through as it does with lighter colours.

The Style Edit

Find a good tailor

The better a garment fits the more expensive it looks. A few simple alterations by a tailor can take a simple and affordable black dress or skirt and make it look expensive and made just for you!

Invest in a steamer

Wrinkled clothes will always look cheap. The benefit of a steam iron is that they are gentle on your clothes, unlike an iron which can easily burn fabrics. A hand-held steamer is affordable and easy to use.
