The good news is, there are many ways you can look luxurious and feel fabulous without breaking the bank.

With these small and inexpensive tweaks, you can look and feel classy. Friends might even start coming to you for tips!

1. Preowned jewelry

Let’s not avoid the fact that the jewelry you see adorning the necks of famous starlets has a price tag that would make anyone shudder. Even full-priced jewelry in shop display cases can still cost you thousands. These pieces are fantastic quality and will stand the test of time, but why pay full price when there’s another option? Purchasing these timeless, beautiful pieces second-hand will allow you to obtain a classy look without the extortionate price. The reality is that preowned jewellery that’s been taken care of will look precisely like it’s brand new counterparts. Best of all, it’s the real deal, and you won’t need to settle for knock offs or cheap imitations.

2. Always wear lipstick

Even a lady wearing a full tracksuit can look classy with a bit of red lipstick. Lipstick shows you’ve put effort into your look and can instantly glam up your ensemble. It draws the eye upward, so if your outfit feels a bit basic, the lipstick will capture all the attention. It doesn’t take long to apply, so you won’t need to waste hours in the mirror, perfecting your smoky eye. Putting on lipstick will also make you feel confident, and confidence is always classy.

3. Wear black clothing

Black looks fantastic on everyone and instantly makes you look classy. Everyone knows black is slimming, but it’s also appropriate for almost any occasion. You can dress it up or down depending on where you’re going and what you’re doing. That means that you can own one black dress and wear it all the time. It saves you money since you won’t have to buy as many clothes, plus you will always look polished and put together. Pair with silver jewelry or hand-me-down pearls for an extra classy look.

4. Learn how to style your own hair and do your nails

A stylist is expensive but learning how to style your own hair will save you tons of money. While it’s best to save the cuts and colors to the experts, there’s no reason why you can’t learn a few easy updo’s. A basic updo looks elegant and chic for any occasion and with any outfit. Also, having your nails done will complete the look and can be done at home with a bit of patience. Going to the salon is always lovely, but it’s an expensive habit to upkeep. Chipped and cracked nails can instantly ruin your look, so doing your nails at home is a great way to ensure they are always in perfect condition.

You don’t need to spend a ton of money to looks polished and classy. Classy is a state of mind, and by using these easy tricks, you can exude confidence and look fabulous.
