Living like a Royalty may sound like an expensive proposition, but in the world of fashion, you can achieve this fantastical wish with the help of a few smart tricks. Those of those running tight on budgets should not worry about having to go the extra mile (money-wise) to experience what a royalty would.
Even with limited financial resources, you can have a royal fashion sense and convince the onlookers that you are one of the elite. In order to, however, achieve this task you must acquaint yourself with a few tips which can totally ease the entire process.
Whether or not you have keen knowledge about fashion, follow these simple tips and you can pull off a sophisticated look anytime you want.
While there are plentiful ways to go about it, I am going to narrow down to 5 tips. These tips consider budget-friendliness as an important aspect without compromising with the gleam of a royal appearance.
- Shoes Are VERY Important
Kate Middleton is a royalty whose fashion choices are applauded around the world. One of the mainstays of her fashion is moderately high heels. You should avoid wearing spiky heels, though you can switch to them when the occasion so calls. Wedges are not quite popular among elites and are considered rather casual for a sophisticated outfit. One style of shoes that refine the appearance of the outfit in any way you see it is a pair of pumps. Do not purchase unnecessarily flashy shoes that betray the sophistication that is elemental to royal fashion.
- Mind the Dress You Wear
Whether you are wearing a dress or a skirt, make sure the length of either of them is not too short. If I were to give you an idea, make sure your dress’s hemline does not pull above the knees. It is not that short dresses are prohibited, but they are frowned upon because traditional fashion etiquettes do not embrace skin-show. In fact, wearing dresses below knees actually accentuate your figure and make you look lean. Also, no cleavage—a BIG NO! While a hemline above knees is tolerated, cleavage is not. So, if you have a gorgeous dress with a fancy cut in between, you have got to shelve it while you are playing royalty.
- What about Bags?
Alright, you must have a way with the bags, without attracting a lot of attention toward them. Your fashion sense should be attractive but subtle, and a large bag could affect your appearance. Clutch purses are favourites among royalties because they are small, attractive but unobtrusive. If you are looking for a reasonable alternative, then a handle satchel is also a good choice. While the real royalties wear bags often costing a kidney, you can find reasonably-priced ones online.
- Watch out for colours and prints
As noted already, you want to look sophisticated so you will have to stray away from starkly dark colours that are exceedingly bold or hurt the eye. Instead, prefer bright but warm tones that light up the mood. Solid colours are quite common in dresses worn by royalties, but you might want to go for prints and patterns. Strips go perfectly with almost every occasion, and block patterns are okay provided they are not heavy on the dress and do not make the dress look like a chessboard.
- Embodying Contemporary fashion
Before you ask, let me clarify that living like royalty does not inevitably remove you from contemporary, modern fashion. It does not, though it, of course, limits your choices. Younger royals have smartly embodied modern fashion in their daily fashion routine. Casual pants are pretty much popular so are classic pantsuit. Colour bock blazers go perfectly with everything you wear, and this quality of theirs makes them very popular among royals. For a casual setting, you can go for a decent top (not showing too much skin).
Also, do not be afraid of repeating your choices because unlike royals you cannot always wear tailor-made clothes. In case you really need some motivation, Kate Middleton does not care less about repeating her choices. After all, it is more about how you carry yourself in public than what you wear!
