Another way to make your clothes look more expensive is your choice of color. Black is the perfect color to look slim but also hides other cheap-looking signs. ASOS Wrap Blouse, available here
8. Get stains out as soon as you can
Treat a stain while it’s fresh. New York brand The Laundress’ eco-friendly fabric-care solutions are not only highly effective but biodegradable, too.
