WITH inflation hitting us hard we want to make sure we can get the most out of our clothes.
So personal stylist Helena Critchley has gathered some super savvy top tips to help our clothes look more expensive and it doesn’t have to cost you a lot.
It comes as LTK commissioned research found that for shoppers who are trying to spend less, the two main priorities when purchasing items are to feel like they’ve bought a quality item (51%) or that they’ve saved money (62%).
This shows that shoppers are more considered in their purchase behaviours, opting for items that are a true investment and financially beneficial.
Helena has grown a shopping profile with over 238K followers on Instagram and has become a small business owner of fashion brand Azurarose.
And since starting the business during the pandemic in 2020, she has become a shopping expert in her own right.
Helena realised that she wanted a wardrobe with beautiful, unique pieces which are flattering and can be worn time and time again.
She says: “Focus more on buying higher quality pieces which will last longer and that you will get more wear out of, rather than buying pieces you will only wear once or twice.
“Shop the sales.
“Head to the LTK app to find out what your favourite influencers are wearing and how they’ve sourced them cost-effectively.
“People want to get as much as they can for their hard-earned money.
“If you see something you like, always save it to your wish list, and then you can go back to it when there are sales, and the items might be discounted.
“Make your wardrobe versatile.
“Buy blazers and tailored trousers as there are so many ways to wear them.
“Try styling your favourite summer dresses for autumn by layering them with a high-neck top and boots.”
