    4. Textures
    Mixing textures is a sure-fire way to create a look that seems more expensive than it is. Seek out textures that are on those higher priced items, and replicate how they are mixed together by taking inspiration from shops like Anthropologie (they're masters at texture mixing). Mix rough and shiny, and various sheens.

I found a faux fur cowl next scarf on sale for $19 and it dresses up every single outfit. It makes me feel fancy and like I've got some money in the bank even if I wore sweats all day, and ate stale cereal.
