How to Achieve Sophisticated look with High-Street wear
The trick to create a look of sophistication with a "high-street" wardrobe
Style is not about being opulent and fancy.
Elegance and originality cannot be bought. Today, the well-accepted trend is to mix.
Remember the rules
If you do not want to look like everyone else, avoid buying the items put in the shop window as well as the cheap basic: the jacket with too many zips, the crumpled black pants, the too shiny satin top, the too faded and ripped jeans or the too synthetic tight dress in jersey. Never buy clothing without trying it on first and opt for complementary colors and patterns to match with your high-end clothing.
Betting on staid accessories
What is the secret of these elegant women who dress at Zara, H&M, Mango and Topshop.? They know how to accessorise their "cheap" outfit with a beautiful belt, a beautiful scarf, "creative" shoes ... and you're done
Designer staples elevate a high street outfit
Sometimes you have to invest in timeless designer pieces that will bring allure and modernity to any outfit and provide the illusion of a high-end wardrobe.
Mix and Match
Never create a total look from a single brand! To have style, you must know how to mix designer's piece with a street fashion outfit. This rule is valid for all brands and budgets.
Cheap shoes are never forgiven!
The low-priced leather generally ages badly. During job interviews, the first thing the human resources director will look at is the condition of the nails and the shoes.
You will lose all the elegance of your beautiful dress with stiletto heels. Even if you are not a fan of shoes, it is an accessory that needs to know how to maintain.
Every time it breaks
Avoid wearing things that need professional repair or tailoring
- The label that pokes out the collar or from a scarf
- The sticker under the sole of the shoes
- The transparent bra strap
- A too small or too big size
- Unstitched hems
- Ripped tights
