Top Tips for Getting a Designer Look on a High Street Budget

All women dream of owning designer outfits and strutting out of the door like some kind of catwalk model. However, these pieces are usually ridiculously expensive, with t-shirts priced at hundreds of pounds and jeans, coats, and bags costing thousands. There’s a saying that suits this situation perfectly; ‘it’s not what you wear, it’s how you wear it’. That’s right - anything you wear can look designer if you wear it properly. Here are our top tips for getting a designer look on a high street budget:


Buy Neutral Colours

Neutral colours often look more expensive than bright, loud colours. Beiges, greys, creams, whites, blacks, and browns will also match with more items. That doesn’t mean you can’t incorporate a little colour into your wardrobe here and there, but if you want to look expensive, neutral is the way forward!

If in Doubt, Go for Black

Black is an amazing colour; it helps us look slimmer, it hides imperfections better, and it goes with absolutely anything. It also has the benefit of looking more expensive than it’s differently coloured counterparts. If you’re ever in doubt about what colour to go for, go for black to create the illusion of womens designer clothing.

Choose Flattering Cuts

Cuts that flatter your figure and hug you in all the right places can look almost tailored, helping to give you an awesome look. You could even get your high street pieces tailored: it won’t cost as much as buying a designer item, and it’ll look much more expensive!

Look for High Street Copies

Sometimes, high street stores will sneakily bring out copies of designer items, so strike while the iron is hot! For example, Jeffrey Campbell Coltrane boots are gorgeous but expensive, so stores like River Island, Topshop, and Garage Shoes all brought out copies for a fraction of the price. You can usually find great fashion blogs giving all the gossip on fashion ‘dupes’, so do your research!

Invest in a Great Coat

A great coat will be the first thing somebody notices about your outfit, so if you have a little more money to spend, make sure you spend it on a coat! If you choose wisely enough, it won’t matter what you’re wearing underneath.

Blow Dry Your Hair

Big, bouncy locks always look more expensive, so give yourself a voluminous blow dry every morning using plumping mousse, and dry your hair upside down. It really can make the world of difference!

Shop on eBay

eBay has been known to sell some amazing items at crazily low prices, so take a look on there for genuine designer items that you could buy for a bargain. Just beware of sellers trying to sell fake items at a high cost!


The right accessories can make a great outfit look even better. Sometimes, all it takes is a simple ear cuff, necklace, or watch to jazz up an outfit and make it look more expensive.

Remember, it’s not what you wear, it’s how you wear it - wear your high street items with confidence and class and you’ll have the designer look nailed!
