3 Ways to Look Like A Boss When You’re On A Tight Budget
Hey, Beauty Boss!
I know alllll too well the struggle of needing to look current, not be seen in the same outfit twice, and trying to stick to a budget at the same time. We have heard the sayings before: “dress for the job you want, not for the job you have,” “dress for success,” and “everyday is a fashion show and the world is your runway.” Yeah, there is no denying that whether you are growing your own brand or climbing your way up the corporate ladder, image is EVERYTHING. That said, so is having money in the bank SO check out my top 3 tips for looking like a boss when you’re on a budget!
Establish your signature color!
This is going to do a couple of things for you. First, it does WONDERS for your branding. Two, it makes mixing and matching your closet so easy. Build your wardrobe palette around your signature color, and next thing you know, you are in mix and match heaven which makes getting mileage out of your pieces so much easier!
Add flare with accessories!
Playing with different color combinations in your shoes can go a lot farther than that fancy statement jacket. So instead of dropping your serious coins on statement pieces, go with statement accessories. Splurge on your staples like a bomb tailored blazer jacket or wide leg trousers that can go with just about anything, and then save on your statement pieces like your accessories.
Wear the heels!
Not only does a pair of heels elevate every outfit, but according to a European study that correlated heel height with confidence, “Research has suggested that a tall woman is considered more assertive, confident, richer, capable, successful, independent, and even more intelligent than their shorter peers,” psychologist Emma Kenny said in a statement. Don’t get me wrong, I am all for a chic flat, but when it comes to asserting my boss-ness, I couldn’t agree more.
