After watching the new video from Chums on celebrity makeovers, it made me want to put together some tips and tricks on making your plus size clothes look more expensive. It’s so simple to just buy and throw anything on, but as you can see in the video, the smallest of things can make the biggest impression. Baggy clothes, clothes that are too long, not finishing outfits properly, and an unkempt appearance can give a bad impression. When you look at even the smallest of things and change them, that’s what can bring an outfit together and make your clothes look more expensive. Not to mention make you look more put together overall.
Obviously, the biggest impact is going to be from having your clothes tailored to you. In the Chums video, the biggest difference was definitely from having clothing that fits. Whether you need something taken in, or taken up, having clothes that look as if they were made for you can make a huge difference. Plus it doesn’t always cost a fortune depending on what you want doing. A simple step of changing the buttons to something colourful, slightly more expensive, or just expensive looking can also elevate an outfit.
Choosing a slightly different colour to your usual is also a great way to get your clothes to appear like they fit better. As well as not washing them as much, if you’ve only had something on for an hour, don’t throw it in the wash. Washing items too quickly can make them become smaller and fade.
One thing you might not think about, but what will especially help women, is having the correct underwear. A properly fitted bra and pants that don’t create tight lines can really change an outfit. A properly fitted bra alone can change the way a dress or top fits you. You’ll also notice a change in the way you stand which will again help!
Picking between dressy and casual is always a difficult choice, but in doubt, it’s always better to be over dressed than under. Rocking up with dirty old shoes won’t help you to make your clothes look more expensive. It’s in the tiny details too, adding a small waist belt, jewellery, scarves, and other accessories add to a look. Just be careful to not add too many extras.
