All women want to look exactly like those supermodels or celebrities in swoon-worthy outfits right out from those fashion magazine covers. However, do you have all that money to spend on designer clothes, trendy accessories and luxurious brands?

Well, the good news is that you don’t need to be filthy rich to obtain that elegant and glamorous look – all it takes is a few tricks.

Tip 1: Keep Your Hair Simple, Healthy and Beautiful

Forget about luxury and high-end designer brands. Did you know that your hair is enough to make a stunning fashion statement?

Your hair is that crucial element that sets the tone and of course, whatever the type of clothes you wear will then appear as an accessory to the hair.

What I recommend you is to keep your hair natural and healthy. And, do yourself a favor and stay away from bold hair colors such as purple, green and blue. These might look appealing at a costume party or during Halloween, but not if you are looking for a glamorous look.

Kiyah Wright, an Emmy award-winning celebrity hairstylist, even claimed that wearing a ponytail is one of the perfect hairstyles which can accentuate someone’s facial features.

Tip 2: Invest in Statement Accessories

Compared to the price of designer outfits, accessories are an inexpensive investment that can easily jazz up your style. They can not only improve your overall look but can also transform an ordinary outfit into an extraordinary one.

Suppose you are going to a party and you decided to wear a black sheath dress. If you want a unique look and wish to stand out, choose a nice hat, matching purse and jewelry.

Tip 3: Opt for “Natural” Makeup Routine

Ever heard that a makeup brush is like a magic wand that can transform an ugly duckling into Cinderella? But what happens when that magic wand is overused?

Well, it is sometimes easy to go overboard with makeup and you could end up with a way-too-smokey eye makeup like Tyra Banks at the 2012 Moth Ball or with an overdone and not-so-natural makeup like Lindsay Lohan at the 2011 Supperclub event.

This is why when it comes to makeup, my personal advice is to go for the quick and simple. You can put on an almost natural and minimal makeup so as to look effortlessly simple but beautiful. And, of course, you can keep all the shimmery and bold makeup for posh parties.

Tip 4:Don’t Forget That Simpler Is Better

A considerable number of people tend to consider Jennifer Aniston as their style icon. Why? Well, because she has that simple but yet “expensive” and gorgeous style. Wearing only a simple tee, pullover and jeans, the actress can look effortlessly chic.

Indeed, you don’t need luxurious clothes and accessories covered in expensive logos to look great.

Tip 5: If in Doubt, Wear Black

I always, always hear this from my mom: “Who died? Why do you dress like you are going to a funeral?”

This comment might hurt sometimes, but that’s the easiest way for a chic or elegant look, especially when you don’t have enough time to sort out between colored clothes. Of course, you can also add a scarf, a hat and even statement jewelry.

Tip 6: Get Fashionable Sunglasses

If you’ve been underestimating the importance of sunglasses as a glam factor, now’s the time to change up your mind and carry a pair with you.

And, here are some more tips (which are free, so be grateful and take them):

  • If you want a glamorous and sophisticated look like Miranda Kerr, opt for cat-eye sunglasses.
  • If you are more on the feminine-floral side, opt for embellished sunglasses, just like Olivia Palermo.
  • Like to copy the famous style of Kylie Jenner, try the cool and geometric browline sunglasses.
  • Another perfect addition to your list of accessories is the round sunglasses that can give a retro vibe.


Your budget may be limited, but your creativity is not. And, well, when a woman wants to look stylish and chic, nothing can stop her.
