You can add gold accessories to make your outfit structured and shiny. Keep your handbags and purses clean too. Nothing says cheap more than a dirty bag. Make sure that your make-up and your hairdo looks great with your outfit. They affect the whole outfit too. Opt for a clean and laidback hairdo for a casual day and night out.
