You already know as a KOKOnista that looking good sometimes can dig into your pocket and leave you broke for days, well we all must pay the price for something that we love right? Many a time we see our favorite celebrities dressing up a storm in get-ups we could only dream off and most of the times we wish we’d have the opportunity to slay like them. This wishes can sometimes be strong to the extent that we go for their highly priced wears, and end up regretting it the minute we leave the store. How about if we tell you, you can also look like your favorite celebrity without having to break your bank? Well, follow these five steps and get to look like a million dollar baby!
Tailor: You must be wondering why a tailor? well, the truth is, those designs you see are sewn too, maybe with better quality sewing machines and made by designers who attended Harvard, you can also get your own slay with your very local tailor if you just know how to get the best materials yourself. All you need do is visit your local material market with the photos of your style and pick the materials. If however, you do not trust your material “picking skills”, then you can simply leave everything to your trusted tailor, and voila! your celebrity outfit is ready.
Accessories: Accessorizing the right way can turn a dull looking get-up to a celebrity glam. Your favorite celebrities are mostly dressed by stylists who know exactly how to pick the best accessories for their different clothing. Getting the best accessories makes all the difference and rocking them right can magically vamp up your style. So, instead of investing in the expensive gowns, pants, and likes, you can go for low budget sunglasses, scarfs, pieces of jewelry and so on.
Shoes: Ever heard of the statement “a woman in good shoes is never ugly”, well, no truer words have been said! By good shoes, it doesn’t necessarily mean going for the expensive ones, in the context, the low budget but the stunning would do the tricks. Sometimes big names may not do it. However, you need to learn how to combine your shoes to go well with your entire clothing. There’s nothing that brings on the glam like a good pair of stilettos! For a chic and laidback weekend look, by all means, rock your sneakers.
Keep a keen eye on the trend: Celebrities always know when to and not to rock their designs. This may be because they most times set the trend, they, however, know when to go light and when to go heavy. You do not want to be caught in all the weights for summer or rocking “old school” when new designs are being rocked everywhere.
Invest in timeless pieces: We saved the best for the last, timeless pieces are a gem! Yes, we said you need to keep an eye on the trend, but what do you do when the trend changes every single time. Timeless pieces! your celebrities have then and so should you. No matter the season or year you are in, the little black dress would be forever be lit! Clothes in red and blue, dark wash jeans, blazers, white shirts, and others would always be a thing. Photo Credit: KOKO
