I am always asked about and complimented on my personal style. I’m flattered by the love, but honestly there is nothing super complicated about what I wear and how I style myself. You can look good no matter your size, shape or budget with a few key tips.I was stylish with a lot of money and just as fly with less. I believe you can look amazing at any price point. Here are my 10 tips to looking your best on a budget.
1. Wear neutral colors
Black, white, nude and denim are the easiest ways to look fabulous on a budget. This is not to say you cant look good in other colors. But these neutral colors are the easiest way to get a quality and timeless look without breaking the bank. Statement pieces like blazers, jeans, and pumps are best done in neutral tones.
2. Wear clothes that fit properly
There is nothing like fit and proportion to take a look from basic to chic. Make sure that your clothes are not too tight or too big. Having the perfect fit will elevate your look instantly.
3. Dress for your body type
I think certain style clothing looks good on certain body shapes. For example there are certain things that don’t look good on me because I am short and curvy. Straight leg jeans work for me and high waisted jeans don’t. It’s about finding styles that compliment your body type.
4. Wear proper undergarments
Trust me, spanx are popular for a reason. The proper undergarment will help to smooth you out underneath your clothing so that they lay on your body better. Waist cinchers and strapless bras are amongst my favorite. They hold you up and suck you in seamlessly for a more pulled together look.
Using clothing items on top of one another adds dimension to your outfit. You can easily take a basic tank top to another level by adding a cute blouse or casual jacket over it. Also add tights underneath a dress for a different look. Use your clothing to layer and it is sure to give you a more fashionable appeal.
This is probably my favorite way to look fab! A good accessory can take an outfit from drab to fab in an instant. A junky necklace with a tank, A cute pair of sunglasses, a scarf with a sweater are ways to get that celebrity look. Use accessories to elevate your style.
7. Maintain clear skin
There something about clear glowing skin that just screams glamour to me. Maintaining a good consistent skin care regimen will come in handy when wanting to look your best. It is important to use a good cleanser, toner, moisturizer and mask to help keep your skin in good condition. Whether you decide to wear a little makeup or not, you will have the foundation to bring your look together.
8. Fleeky eyebrows
You must have shaped eyebrows. There is something about how a freshly shaped eyebrow just frames the face that takes your beauty to new levels. If you want to look fabulous, make sure that your eyebrows being tamed is at the top of your to do list.
9. Simple and neat hairstyle
The rule with hair is less is more. A chic bun, a cute short cut or big curly fro is perfect. These styles are easy to do on your own and instantly add a touch of glam. But with weaves, extensions and wigs being so popular right not, creating a winning style is easier than ever before.
10. Poppin lipstick color
Let me tell you there is nothing like an amazing lip to make you look fabulous! Take the time to find a beautiful color that looks good on you. My all time favorite is my Ruby Woo, but the Stunna lip paint by Fenty beauty is amazing too. When I put these on you can’t tell me nothing. It makes me feel like to epitome of fabulous.
11. Sleek Edges
When your edges are smooth it gives a more polished look to your entire face. Get a good edge control and add a little to your edges before going out. It will elevate your hairstyle instantly.
No matter what you are wearing and what you look like, if you own it like a boss, you will be fabulous. Confidence can make nothing look like something. No matter what, be confident and when you walk in a room or take a picture you will exude glamour, and what’s not fabulous about that?
