Here are 10 commandments to give your style a dash of insta-luxe:
Monochrome palette: Keeping your palette to one single family of color makes a look instantly luxe and chic. We love neutrals like blush, tan, ivory or greige (the perfect mix of beige and grey — fashion’s newest color crush). A monochrome palette always looks polished. Case in point: Olivia Palermo.
Belt up: Adding a belt is the simplest way to insta-luxe any look, especially if that belt comes over a jacket.
Fit matters: Clothes that fit better look better. Investing in a tailor pays off.
Keep it classic: Don’t go over the top by trying to add too many trends in one look. Include some classic elements in your #ootd.
Feel the fabric: And avoid combining too many textures all at once.
Add a third piece: It pulls the look together. Here are some of our fave third pieces from Le Tote for that touch of luxe.
The bag & shoes: Whether they are simple or statement, these are deal breakers.
Top it up: A touch of makeup, a simple mani, neat hair and a signature perfume, everything goes a long way.
Accessorize smart: Sleek accessories like a skinny scarf or a Y-chain always look polished. We selected some of our most luxe accessories for you!
Iron it out: Get rid of any loose threads, iron out any wrinkles. And give yourself a final look-over once before grabbing your jacket.
