Ironing your clothes can make a very big impact! Wrinkles make clothes (expensive ones) look cheap. So, ironing/pressing/steaming cheap stuff will make them look way more expensive. Invest in a steamer if you want to redefine your closet.
2. Take good care of your stuff

3. Ensure that you have a lint roller near
Your lint rollers, just like the lip balm, is very essential. Have them wherever you go. Get a mini version in your handbag. Fluffy things like sticking on coats and trousers, which can ruin your looks.
4. Ensure that all your clothes fit you

If things around the waist aren’t that good, get a nice belt. Some tricks you should employ include: Not wearing anything too small or too big.
