style secrets to look expensive

    I LOVE that Vince Camuto open toe bootie – I’ve been looking for one to replace my old pair. But I just refuse to wear a 4″ heel anymore. And a 3″ one is very very hard to find…

      i hear you. love these shoes but they are definitely not walking shoes due to the height. the only saving grace is they have block heels which make them surprisingly comfortable.

    I hear you loud and clear — less is more with the accessories!!!

    I use to think that having good taste, looking expensive, you needed to dress in neutrals without color. You look wonderful and wear lots of color.

    Hello Beth,
    I have been following your blog for a few years now, watching your videos and (sometimes) trying your recipes with ingredients I can find in my country (France). I am pleased to comment for the first time. I agree with your tips and would like to add another one which I use to “expensive looking” : gloves ! Wearing a good leather pair of gloves, matching either your coat, bag, shoes… or constrasting for a bit of colour… I think it is a good addition to a look. Don’t you think so ?
    Stay safe, Cathie

    I think a scarf makes an outfit look elegant like in your picture with the red blazer. Thank you for all the suggestions! I will keep them in mind when putting an outfit together especially the one about the jewelry

    On How to Look Expensive, that neck scarf was such a pretty surprise! Sharp how tied and just added such a nice touch!

    Beth, your advice is spot on as usual and none of these tips need cost a fortune either. Good quality is worth the investment because when laundered, stored, and cared for properly, they can last many years. And affordable brands will benefit from the same due care. Making sure clothing fits well and ironed/steamed are paramount to looking great. A wrinkled jacket, shirt, etc will always look sloppy no matter how much you spent on it. Thank you Beth for continuing to inspire and encourage us!
