Every seasoned shopper knows one of the most important rules of fashion: you don’t have to spend a million bucks to look a million bucks! It’s possible to look stylish, classy and glamorous without splashing out major moolah. To demonstrate, and in honour of our Style and Glam Week, we bring you some tips and tricks to glam up your wardrobe for less.
Even style icon Kate Middleton repeats her outfits at times! Only, she appears with different accessories on each occasion – a stylish scarf at one event, an eye catching neck piece the next. Not only do accessories make an outfit appear different, it can make it less or more formal or casual. You could dress up an outfit with a hat and completely change how it looks. Completely make over an outfit by adding a pop of colour – a plain suit becomes vibrant with a colourful scarf, a short dress is transformed by adding some vibrant patterned tights. Even some new jewellery or hair accessories could make an amazing difference.
Invest in quality nude and black shoes
Rather than shoes in various colours to match different outfits, invest in good quality nude and black shoes. You may be amazed at just how classy they look and how many different outfits you can team them up with. You cannot go wrong with this half-price smart pair of black leather boots from Topshop. Also be sure to check out the Dorothy Perkins sale offers in Shoes and Boots: we saw some lovely strappy sandals in beige, classy court shoes in black, sexy peep toes and more at 50% and more off.
Clothes for less
Stay on the lookout for great classic, evergreen clothing. Find that LBD, that crisp white shirt and those pairs of sexy denims that will stay with you over the years. For more in-trend pieces that may go out of style in the next season, try to find the best deals and lowest prices.

Let your imagination take flight. Is there a scarf in your wardrobe that could look really cool as a fabric belt? Or as a wrap around skirt? Mix up wearing different tops over, and under, shift dresses and skirts. Things that you have in your wardrobe could get a whole new lease of life simply by changing your perspective!
