Dress Like You're A Millionaire

Harper's Bazaar shared a couple dozen style suggestions of how to dress like you are a millionaire.  While my bank account may be a far-cry from the seven digit status, it's actually much easier to have a millionaire inspired wardrobe than I would have thought!
Here are a few of my favorite tips from the list. 

Uniform dressing - you can buy nondescript LBDs, cream-colored knits and dark wash jeans from anywhere. Having a handful of classic pieces in your closet allows for an array of looks that is crème de la crème

Polished looks pricey - messy will never equal 'wealthy' at first glance, so keep things sophisticated with clean lines, polished accessories and neat hair and makeup 

The basics - if nothing else, invest in your shoes and bag. If you can't afford to, carry a minimalist leather tote and wear simple ballet flats or loafers

Logo is a no-go - avoid putting brands on display

Sweater weather - drape your cardigan over your shoulders

Tip-top shape - if you're going to wear something, make sure it's still in good condition

When it comes to sunglasses, listen to Jackie O - wear tortoiseshell eyewear a la Jackie Kennedy

Simply cinched - cinching an oversized coat or classic button-down adds instant polish to any outfit

Nail it - keep eccentric nails to a minimum, just say no to neon polish and anything acrylic

Dark denim - the darker the wash, the more sleek your denim looks

Like a lady - ladylike dresses make you feel like you just stepped out of a WASP-y family portrait. Giving off an old money, new clothes feel.

Your scent can be just as wealthy as your look

Draped in jewels - don't be afraid to put your jewelry front and center. From simple diamond studs to borderline-gaudy statement necklace, this kind of jewelry ups the ante

Own a navy blazer. Own a turtleneck. Wear them together.

Make sure it fits - clothing is instantly downgraded when it doesn't fit correctly

Camel coat

Wear your pearls girls - when in doubt, a classic strand of pearls adds elegance to your style
