  • Use a statement piece:

Not just jewellery a statement piece can be shoes, bags or even headdresses. Statement pieces come in whatever form and when using one, it is advisable to use it over a blank canvas. A blank canvas is a plain cloth with minimal to no extra designs or patterns. This is so that the statements piece can stand out without overshadowing the entire dress.

Statement pieces can be tricky to pull but they are fun to try out and you should never be afraid to inculcate even more than one statement piece to whatever dress you are wearing. The colourful, the better; the better the more expensive the look.

That been said, it goes without saying that dressing expensively on a budget boils down to your personality.  It is pertinent to note that you can put all the fashion pieces in place but the most important thing you should never forget is your confidence.  Once you lose confidence in your dress,  then the entire dress flops.

Always make sure that you put on confidence, together with a great smile to kill any look you are going for, especially when you need to look expensive on a budget.
