Updated: Oct 18

We've all heard the saying "dress for the job you want and not the job you have." You may not be the CEO yet but you can certainly dress the part without breaking the bank. Keep reading to learn three tips for looking like a million bucks without spending it.


1. Invest in Basics- building a well verse wardrobe starts with good basics. You will always have something to wear. A white tee, a button down blouse, a pair of black pants, a black dress and a classic blazer are all staples you need in your closet. Invest in pieces that are high quality so that they will last you a while. If you need help getting started, shop our Basics Collection.


2. Shop Secondhand- Thrifring and buying gently used items used to be frowned upon but now people are saying it loud and proud and it has become a whole movement especially with the way the world is shifting. We all have to do our part to save the earth especially now, plus you can find some one of a kind gems to add to your closet. If you have an eye for designer duds but don't have the budget to buy them, shopping secondhand is the way to go. You can find premium items at discounted prices without even having to leave your couch. With all the secondhand shopping apps out there like Poshmark, Depop, and Thrilling you can score BIG time.

3. Don't Buy into Trends- We set consumers tend to let others tell us what is fashionable and dictate what we should wear season after season. Don't fall into that rut. Develop your own style and then add in trendy pieces where it makes sense. For example, add a trendy bag to a simple outfit. Don't overdue it with the trends. The key is to make it look effortless.
