Shiny, synthetic material basically screams cheap. But a more natural-feeling material, like this crepe jersey that is made from linen, can easily pass as $$$ without spending the cash. Plus it helps that this delicate, off-the-shoulder dress in this season’s hottest color is so NOW. H&M, $29.99.
Legit suede is super pricey, but faux suede, when done right, looks like the real thing for more than half of the price! This rad t-shirt will look amazing when paired with flares or a mini-skirt and some slides. Definitely a head-turner! Zara, $7.99.
Denim doesn’t have to be super expensive to look super chic, and a reasonably priced skirt like this one from ASOS means you also don’t have to skip out on the denim trend. Amp up the wow factor with a fitted tee or tank, and your fave accessories and sandals. ASOS, $48.
Cotton is a popular fabric, but is usually underrated in the fashion realm unless it’s a white tee. When you choose an item that is predominantly cotton, then it’s safe to say that your clothing will look fresh for a lot longer. Plus when it’s in a gorge halter silhouette like this one — and has pockets!? You better believe you’ll wear this one forever. Forever 21, $48.
Every fashion Instagrammer knows a pair of fashionable sunnies easily makes an outfit super chic. But that doesn’t mean they have to cost a lot! A pair of these sunglasses from Topshop will add a haute factor to everything from a pair of skinnies to a summer dress. Topshop, $26.
When it comes to faking expensive AF, it’s all in the delicate details, including the material. A fabric like chiffon not only looks expensive, but also feels like it too. And when comes in a chic top with bell sleeves? Then you can be sure your friends will be asking to check the price tag. Urban Outfitters, $28.
Crushed velvet is another material that appears Kardashian-worthy, but doesn’t have to cost Kardashian money. These mules are perf for both summer and fall, and work with your fave pair of jeans and a sweet midi skirt. Forever 21, $25.
