Dallas fashion blogger wearing camel color as a tip for how to look expensive on a budget

 

Ever wonder what makes an article of clothing look luxurious and high-quality versus cheap and inexpensive?  Well, there are several factors that come into play here including the type of fabric, the fit of the garment, the way it’s cut, whether it’s a solid or print (solids tend to look more luxe), and the color all play a big role in how luxe-looking a piece of clothing looks.  I cover all of these factors in great detail in the above YouTube video titled: HOW TO LOOK EXPENSIVE ON A BUDGET so be sure and check that out.

In today’s blog post I’m focusing on how the color of a garment can make all the difference in how luxe it appears.  Typically darker shades like black, gray, and navy tend to look more high-quality even if they’re not, since darker shades will hide the flaws of the fabric better. But, the one color that without a doubt looks the most expensive is camel!  Whether it’s a lighter shade or a darker shade of camel this gorgeous neutral hue always seems to make outfits appear more expensive and high-quality.  Keep scrolling for 5 chic ways to wear camel this season in 5 very budget-friendly fall looks that won’t break the bank!
