Fabulous holiday style doesn’t have to break the bank. I’ve shared my top tips for maximizing your party season style by shopping off-price stores (see that post here). Today’s post is all about mixing high-end items with more affordable pieces to create that perfect high-low mix. My top tips for mastering that mix are below.

How to Master that Perfect High-Low Holiday Style
1. Save on trends: Choosing wisely what you splurge and save on is important. Save on trends that are likely to cycle in and out quickly. I’m a huge fan of this season’s statement sleeve tops, but next season, I’ll probably be into something else. This affordable eshakti top, which retails for only $39, nails the trend and looks luxurious because I had it customized for my best fit.
2. Know what looks luxe. Developing a discerning eye for fabric, fit, and silhouette will make you a pro at choosing low-end items that look like a million bucks.
3. Elevate an outfit with accessories. Accessories are often great splurge items because you can get a lot of mileage out of them. You can constantly wear the same designer bag, shoes, or belt and look fresh every time. In addition, adding a high-end accessory to affordable pieces often elevates the overall look.
4. Stay true to your style. Always buy items that make you look and feel good. Money spent, whether a little or a lot, on any item that doesn’t make you feel your best is a waste.
