Look great, for less

With a little planning and strategy, you can look like a million bucks on a budget. Here are some Tightwad tips! BTW you will not be able to get the gorgeous Canadian label Smythe navy one button blazer above on a budget... unless you stalk super fab consignment stores!
Become a fabric expert Your best best is a natural fibre such as silk, cotton or wool
Choose your colour and pattern carefully Go monochromatic, embrace dark tones and stick to classic, uniform prints such as stripes, polka dots, plaids, hounds tooth or colour blocks.
Fit is everything Alterations can make an average piece a show-stopper. Consider lowering a skirt hem, narrowing a bodice, stitching bulging pockets, shortening cuffs or adjusting pant hems.
Find costume jewellery that wows Heavy jewellery hangs better and makes a statement.
Work the bag and shoes angle Quality is very important when it comes to accessories so beware of fraying edges. Instead, consider spending more - consider your bags and shoes investments - because they can make, or break, an outfit.
Be picky with embellishments Subtle is safest
Think clean lines You can't go wrong with simple shapes - they always look classic, polished and will hang nicely. Go for a basic silhouette, every time.
