Top 10 tips to look elegant, smart and expensive
1.0 Self care.
Keeping good hygiene won’t cost you much. Spend some time on keeping you clean. As women maintain nice hair, nails and skin. If you have problems, seek medical attention to correct your flaws. Don’t misunderstand the word flaws, as humans we all experience acne, pigmentation, stretch marks, pigmentations and easily breakable nails. If you have major issues, then you should spend some time and money to fix it.
2.0 Try to maintain your BMI
Women look smart and elegant when they are in their best shape. It automatically boosts your confidence and makes you look smart in any outfit. Losing weight or gaining weight is not a hard thing like everyone says. If you have a will, you will always find a way to do it.
3.0 Dress according to your body type
If you are a bit oversized try to wear shapewear and try to camouflage your bodyparts. If you have arm fat try to hide it with some nice sleeves of your dress or top. If there are fat layers everywhere around your torso avoid wearing clothes in stretchy materials. You will look disproportionate and it will be an ugly sight to the others.
4.0 Custom tailor your clothes to your size
You are not alone if you can never find a garment that fits you well. Ready made garments are made for average people. It’s okay to be thinner, talker, shorter, fatter than the normal average woman. But it’s not so elegant, smart or expensive looking if you wear a garment that does not fit you well. Always take the readymade garment to your nearest tailor and alternate it to your size.

Make sure you don’t wear neon colors like magenta and luminous colors. Though red is a bright color, it can make you look elegant and expensive if you do it properly. If you are a beginner don’t try to start with red. Instead start wearing white, beige, navy blue and black.
6.0 Choose proper colors for your skin tone
if you have a warm skin tone go for warm colors like black, brown, burgundy, navy blue. Whites, beige and reds also can be good if your skin has a warmer tone.
