I’ve received about 16 hillion jillion requests for ways to look awesome on a tight budget, and I hear ya, friends. I mean times are tight, for one thing … but shopping smart is a best practice no matter what the economy is up to. So here are a few guidelines that can help you keep your look fresh, fun, and affordable even if you’re hurting for cash.
TIPS FOR LOOKING LIKE A BIG SPENDER
Buy Muted Colors: Blaring brights are super fun but muted tones look more expensive. When you’re trolling Target for tees, pick out raspberry red instead of fire engine red, steel blue instead of superman blue … anything with a little less saturation. You’ll be amazed how much classier those tones will play when paired with your neutrals.
