Cheap v. Expensive Clothes

What differentiates cheap clothes from expensive clothes? The fabrics and the fit. Expensive clothes are made of premium fabrics and the fit is more tailored.

When I shop for clothes at stores like Forever 21 or Target I make sure to pay attention to the fabric. Do not buy cotton tops where the cotton feels stiff and itchy. Buy dresses that are lined. I try to avoid polyester and acrylic. Stay clear of cheap looking beading or clothes with threads hanging off.

When it comes to the fit, just get things tailored. You could find a cute little black dress on sale and then get it tailored so it fits your body like a glove. It will instantly look more expensive and you will look more stylish.
