How to look expensive on a budget

  1. Omibear says:

    these are spot on! But how about a fine shoe?!!
    IMO (and noted in your outfits) 🙂 shoes can change & elevate an outfit (and attitude) as much as a pop of color scrarf!

    Hi Beth
    This is a great post! I think Structure Over Slouch often gets overlooked. I see way too many jogger sets walking around town…I know…I used to be one of them! Fun from time to time but no longer a uniform LOL. I have noticed a really nice well made scarf can look expensive. Anyway, I love Style at a Certain Age and I still think you look like a Ralph Lauren model!
    Take care

    I love all of your looks today! Classic simplicity always looks polished to me…it never goes out of style. Update with the accessories.

  5. All such nice and classy looks. I have said it before and I will say it again, you always look so put together and classy. Love it, as I try for this look every day myself.

    Excellent commentary and pics. I will refer back to this budget chic many times. You wear heels often, how tall are you?

    Love, love, love every outfit you posted. I would wear every piece. You are such an inspiration and I have bought some of the items you have worn in the past. Unfortunately I live in Canada and things are not always available or way to expensive. Anyway, you rocked every one!

    Love this blog’s great ideas!!!! I especially like the 3/4 long brown coat (leather?)! “Stick to Neutrals”, second pic.
    Where did you get it? Have a wonderful holiday!

    Every outfit today is a winner….but I especially love the black watch plaid pants weigh the black sweater. And as a plus size woman I appreciate the structure versus slouch… hiding under slouchy clothes makes a larger women look bigger in in my opinion. . I always make sure that I have structured pieces on predominately. Love looking at your outfits snd thinking how I can make dork for my size.

    I love these looks and you look amazing. I’m trying to figure out how to modify some of these without the heels, but the shoes really make the look in several of them. Would love your help with this. Due to back issues I am not able to wear the heels even though I love them! Great informative post. Thanks and Merry Christmas
