There are few things that are more enjoyable than triumphantly transforming a super inexpensive piece so that it is raised and looks more expensive than it actually is. Sure, investing in well-made staples is always good advice, but if the budget is tight or you just want to try the high-low mix, a cheap item isn't always a faux pas.
It's more about the styling approach. You can make almost anything look more expensive than it actually is by combining it with your other items of clothing. A $ 5 white Hanes t-shirt is instantly considered chic by Olsen by placing it under a blazer and wide-leg trousers and sandals. A floral dress from somewhere like H&M or Zara? Put a leather belt around it and furnish it with a Birkin-style straw bag. Are you catching our drift?
There are so many ways to breathe new life into a budget-friendly piece if you have an arsenal of tips. Speaking of which, in advance we've summarized the best ways to do this, inspired by savvy influencers, and included their items under $ 150 so you can shop to get their look.
