As much as we would love a wardrobe full of Chanel and a shoe collection as big as Carrie Bradshaw’s, I’ve came up with a few tips alongside Sheerluxe to help make what you already have, look a little more special. From careful accessorising to tailoring, here’s how to elevate your current collection…
Drape Your Jacket – draping a jacket over your shoulders creates an air of confidence; elevating your look. From blazers to bombers, wear this layer just like a cape for a street style approach to everyday dressing.
Keep Things Simple – remember when Coco Chanel famously recommended taking one item off before leaving the house? Stick to her mantra by keeping things simple…and clean!
Invest In Tailoring – Olivia Palermo reportedly gets every item of clothing tailored to fit, whether it’s Valentino or H&M. If you’re keen to stick with high street buys, budget for a bit of tailoring for that perfect fit and long-lasting style.
Make Use Of Silk Scarves – whatever your budget, from a Hermes Twilly to a Primark four pounder; silk scarves are associated with French luxury. You decide how to style yours, from tied around your hair or neck, or in a bow on the handle of your bag, even worn as a bracelet for a nod on the classic Parisian glamour.
Wear Good Underwear – for me, matching underwear is the ONE! It lifts my mood and makes me feel sexy and better about myself. Plus nothing cheapens your outfit like a tatty bra strap or VPL – my biggest nightmare! Sheerluxe recommend investing in smart, supportive underwear and giving the cheap ones a miss. Just think sexy and be sexy!
Add Gold Accessories – an injection of gold takes any look up a notch, so invest in statement pieces for impact. Layer your necklaces and rings and splurge on that gold Cartier bangle. Chunky, oversized belts and show-stopping earrings make even the simplest of outfits, that bit more glamorous.
Try Head-To-Toe Neutrals – block colouring is a great way to keep things simple, and an all-neutral look will always have impractical expensive appeal. Layer stone shades on whites and creams for everyday luxe.
