How To Avoid Looking Cheap Even When Your Clothes Are Cheap

Published

on

Shopping cheap] and shopping on a budget are two very different things. Your clothes may be affordable, but they don’t have to look cheap per se. However, just because your entire wardrobe costs the same as one Balenciaga blouse does not mean it has to look like it does. Here are 5 tricks on how to make your clothes look not cheap.

Avoid Using Embellishments

We know sequins are pretty. But only if they are handcrafted by highly skilled people. Not so much when they are done by machine on a $20 T-shirt. Even if an embellished piece looks OK in the store or in a picture, you know that once you start wearing it for real, it’s going to fall apart. And nothing looks cheaper than a jeweled sweater with missing jewels.

No “Expensive” Materials

Lace, silk and patent leather are all lovely when done properly. But they are also a sure-fire giveaway that your outfit is cheap if they aren’t done quite right. Instead of lace, choose a simpler sheer material, swap a patent leather jacket for a classic dark denim and buy a floaty cotton top instead of a cheap silk shirt.

Avoid Cotton Knit in Dark Colors

Throw them into the washer and dryer a couple times,  the color starts to fade and the materials are noticeably fuzzier than when you first bought them. Instead stick to the ones with light colors like grays, pastels, and white. If you do have dark or saturated colors, please don’t throw them in the washer and wash them by hands instead to avoid the fuzziness and color fade.

Look After Your Clothes

Missing buttons, loose threads, and scuffed shoes all make it painfully obvious just how affordable your ensemble was. You would never let your Gucci loafers get ruined. You would sew back on a button if your Dior blazer lost one button. You would go to the end of the earth to get rid of a stain on your beloved cashmere jumper. So do the same with your cheap clothes. If you show them a bit of love, they will look a lot better, and for a lot longer.

Designer Knock-Off Is A Big No-No!

While sometimes the high street can do a pretty good job in during the catwalk, it will never, ever look quite the same and you’ll fool nobody. Instead of opting for direct catwalk copies, take inspiration from trends in a much more subtle way.

Ways To Remove Panty Lines

Published

on

No matter how incredible you look in that outfit, those visible panty line will definitely always ruin it. There are options to avoid those VPL, aka going commando. But of course, not everyone, if not most women, are uncomfortable with this option. Therefore, we try to resume some other options available for you to avoid a visible panty line aka VPL.

Wear Thick or Textured Fabrics

When it comes to tight clothing, silk, jersey, or any other slinky materials are not your best friends. They are too smooth and clingy. You better save them for looser silhouettes. Instead, choose thick and textured facrics such as denim, suede, or tweed. They are best to avoid any lump that goes with your panty.

Camouflage With Printed Clothes

When you come in doubt whether your panty line is visible or not, always choose clothes with print on them. The busier the print is, the better it will be in hiding your panty line. Use Kendall Jenner tactic in the Fashion Award 2018.

Layer Your Panty With Tights Or Pantyhose

This is the classic. Even though a pair of tights and pantyhose might not be summer friendly, but they can perfectly hides the panty line you are dreading about.

Wear Thongs Or G-Strings

This is what professionals do. They might be not as comfortable as the regular panties, but they definitely will save you from the embarrassment of visible panty line aka VPL. So, why not take the comfort out of the equation once in a while.

Wear Stick On Thongs

You might ask, what the hell is that? Well, it is basically a thong but without a waist band. So you basically tape them in the front and in the back of your lower abdomen. The stick-on-thongs are great to be worn for a tight dress that have a very high slit dress. You know, like the dress Bella Hadid wore at 2016 Cannes Film Festival.
