People often say that you should ‘be yourself’ but unfortunately the first thing people remember about you is your appearance and not your personality. How you dress is how the world will address and perceive you so a good impression is important.

Here are ways you can look bougie on a budget:

1.Stick to Simple Colour Palettes

Simple and minimalistic looks give an allusion of luxury. Colours like cream, grey, black and nude are perfect for this. You can wear an all-cream outfit with a pop of red on the lip.

2. Buy a Statement Piece

You are allowed to buy one expensive item such as a well-tailored blazer, a belt, a pair of shoes or a handbag. That expensive item will make the whole outfit look expensive even if your blouse is 100 bob and the jeans are 200 shillings.

3. Keep Makeup Natural

Keep your accessories simple. Do not wear a huge necklace with massive earrings as this will make your outfit look busy.
