How to elevate your daily outfits...


Most of us don't shop designer or luxury brands everyday. We might have a designer bag or an investment piece we wear everyday...


Statistically, we shop from high street, preloved or vintage and more recently, smaller independent brands. Stores that offer affordable and on trend merchandise, allowing us to quickly put outfits and looks together inspired directly from the designer runway collections, ensuring we have the latest fashion at our fingertips.


So, how can we make our everyday outfits look more polished and elevated without spending designer and high end prices? I share a few easy tips...



  1. Ensure your clothes are ironed and well pressed to quickly create an illusion of tailor made garments.

  2. Make sure your clothes fit you well and is tailored to your body. Look out for hemlines on pants and skirts and cuffs on jackets, shirts or tops. The worst mistake you can make is dragging your hemline on the floor - not only does it get dirty, it also gets damaged plus creates the illusion of a "no care" attitude towards your clothes and how you present yourself.

  3. Watch out for the quality of fabric. Buy the best you can afford. The same goes for shoes and handbags. Stick to plain or classic and avoid too much embellishment which could end up spoiling the outfit if a stone or a bead goes missing. The same goes for zips and buttons - make sure they are all in place and replace them if needed.

  4. Pay attention to your shoes - no scuffs and worn through heels. Replace your heels as soon as they need it and always clean your shoes.

  5. Add accessories to your outfit. Play around with jewellery and accessories that can transform your outfit.

  6. Use beautiful hangers that don't hook or snag your clothes - my personal favourites are black velvet hangers preventing clothes from slipping off, ending up on the closet floor.

  7. Maintain your personal grooming, this pulls the final look together - avoid chipped nail varnish, apply subtle and natural make up or a statement lip...
