Who doesn’t want to live a luxurious life, effortlessly? No hassle, just enjoying the benefits that come with glamour. Yet a style that breathes overcompensation and faux superlatively is likely to lose credibility sooner rather than later. The number one advice? To look and live luxurious, don’t overdo it. There’s fascination in distance and mystery. How to achieve this effortless status? Keep reading.
- Dress minimally
Dressing minimally doesn’t entail less clothing, but dressing more consciously. This means buying clothing that sustains both a casual day as well as evening wear. By layering, choosing quality over quantity and knowing what colours match, your wardrobe will get an update without really trying.
Moreover, dressing minimally also includes choosing colour palettes that match but aren’t too out there. Blues and greys, beige and whites – that sort of combinations. You’ll look extremely put together yet effortless; what more do you want?
Even though dressing minimalistic and simplistic requires little extras, some accessories can actually elevate your luxury look. Think of a statement watch, a sophisticated bracelet or sunglasses. These luxury items draw attention and emphasize the effortless chic look you want to communicate. Moreover, accessories like these enhance your wardrobe by adding a little edge, sophistication or flair.
A bag too can boost your luxury look. Choose (faux) leather or suede for the material in a cognac, black or grey colour. This way, your bag will be suitable to carry with any outfit you choose. Moreover, a bag is not just stylish, it’s also a great way to carry anything you want without getting creases in your trousers because of any stuff in your pockets.
- Wear your suit, but casually
An effortless luxury look is built on knowing what to leave out of your outfit choice. When wearing a suit, adding a tie equals expensive luxury; leaving the tie out, however, equals effortlessness. Leave the top one or two buttons of your shirt open, pick a pair of decent shoes to match your belt and suit and strut your outfit with an air of effortless je ne sais quoi.
- Pursue luxury experiences
Aside from your look, effortless luxury is also found in experiences. When you think of luxury and jet set, you think of yachts, casinos, champagne and white parties on bounty islands. Whether you can afford this all at once or not, actively living the experience makes all the difference when aiming for effortless luxury.
Even on a budget, you can create experiences that fit the lifestyle you seek. You just need to know what season is best (or most affordable) to travel, what activities to choose and which places to visit while you’re there. More importantly, however, don’t forget to capture the moment on Instagram or any other platform!
