All girls have different fashion goals. Some dress up to express their personality through their clothes while some girls just want to look put-together for school, for a hangout, or for a party. But at the end of the day, everyone wants to rock an OOTD that looks expensive, but in reality is affordable and doesn't actually break the bank.
While the idea of an expensive-looking outfit that is affordable IRL may sound impossible, take a look at how Alexa Chung creates her style equation and see how it's totally possible!
Buy well-fitting jeans.
Yes, jeans are casual and oftentimes rugged. But buy a well-fitting jeans, pair it with a tailored top, and you'll look golden in a snap.
Choose the prints you wear.
Some prints are too fun and too bold that they run the risk of looking cheap. Take your cue from Alexa and stick to a lot of stripes and simple prints.
Classic pieces are considered staples because not only are they fashionable, they're versatile, too. Cop Alexa's style game by mixing classic pieces with trendier ones like this button-down and embroidered skirt style pairing. The sweater around her shoulders is a great touch, too!
Less is sometimes better.
Instead of piling on the accessories like there's no tomorrow, just focus on one key piece and let it stand out. After all, there is beauty and style in simplicity.
Sticking to one color palette may seem boring for some, but Alexa proves otherwise with her black beret and black sweater style pairing. Her red lips helped racked up the style points, too!
Blaze it up!
When in doubt, just throw on a blazer and you're all set! Yes, blazers can be expensive, but if you divide your total cash out by the number of times you can wear it, you'll come to see that blazers are not that expensive after all.
