But here’s the real reason you need to keep reading. The following fashion hacks will give you a little more credibility when you get dressed each morning. Shop the above and action the below.

  • Switch out the plastic buttons on your jacket to make it look a little more fancy

That’s right, this is where you can make use of the beginner sewing skills you learnt in year 8.

  • Avoid heavy adornment or embellishment when buying budget

This can look cheap and nasty. The less plastic (or metal) hardware, the better.

  • Scour vintage clothing stores for nice bag chains or straps

Keep an eye out at vintage clothing stores. If you've bought an affordable purse from any of the fashion sites above, replace the cheap chain with something special you’ve picked up from a vintage or second-hand store.

  • Buy budget pumps in faux suede

You can pull off a faux suede better than a faux leather any day.

  • Iron, press or steam your clothes

No ifs, ands or buts!

  • Have a few go-to slips

Buy a slip in nude, black and white to keep handy in your closet. Cheap fashion normally isn’t lined and wearing these underneath will help your pieces sit nicely on your body (and hide any underwear lines!).

  • Choose your fabric wisely

You can get away with wearing cheap linen, cotton, neoprene and tweed fabrics, as most of the time, they look more expensive than they are.

  • Lint rollers!

Ever washed something for the first time only to have it come out with tiny bits of fluff all over it? Never fear, the lint roller is here!

  • Buy black

It looks expensive and it looks great. Period.
