How to Achieve an Effortlessly Chic Look On a Budget

Hope you all are off to a great start this week! I absolutely love Monday’s because you get to start the  work week fresh, and decide how you want your week to go! 

I have a lot of things planned this week, mostly work related, but I still want to look cute in an effortless kind of way.

For this look, I’m wearing a pinstripe silk satin shirt, black slacks with a sandal heel. To achieve an effortlessly chic look you can play with texture and add small details to your outfit to elevate the look. For example, instead of wearing a plain button up shirt, I chose a silk satin shirt with stripes  to give it a more expensive feel, and I tied the bottom of my shirt and rolled my sleeves to add some flavor. Another thing I did was style my hair in a high ponytail braid to dress up my outfit, and give it a high fashion look. 

These simple tips can really make your outfit look more expensive than it really is. (This is a 90s vintage top from my mother's closet, for FREE.) If you’re a college student or just balling on a budget, then this ensemble is for you! This look can be put together for under $80, and it has interchangeable pieces so it could be worn with other pieces you might already have, like jeans!
