Fashion experts explain how with some small changes you can elevate your wardrobe to take your outfits from lifeless to luxurious
Feeling confident and happy in your clothes is important to most people, with studies showing that 58 per cent of women in the UK choose their outfit based on factors that make them feel better about themselves and more confident.
For example, textures of butter soft leathers and 100 per cent silks can be capable of improving confidence, happiness, and empowerment. However, it can sometimes be hard to piece together an outfit that gives you an empowered, yet luxury feel.
The experts at contemporary sports luxe brand, AN-Y1 have shared some of the industry's top advice that can help to transform your outfit from lifeless to luxurious, whilst giving you that confident and empowered feel.

1. Wearing clothes that are nicely fitted

Many of us have bought an item of clothing and found that it wasn’t the suited fit for them, that they had hoped it would be.
However, most designer clothing is designed to hold its shape, and is crafted from the finest materials, this means these staple pieces can last for many seasons and years to come.
"Making sure your clothes fit correctly can help create a bold, luxurious statement "
Buying a new item of clothing is always an investment in your wardrobe, therefore, making sure that your clothes are to a high standard and fit correctly can significantly help in creating a bold, luxurious statement at any occasion.
However, this doesn’t always mean you need to spend fortunes on various designer pieces. Instead, you may want to pick a few staple pieces that are very versatile, so that you can get timeliness, continual wear out of them. For example, items such as a coat, a great fitting pair of jeans, or a little black dress.

2. Pairing the right colour combinations

"Accessorising can take your outfit from bland and lifeless to vibrant"
Anu Hinduja, Creative Director of AN-Y1 provides expert commentary on how these tips can help give your outfit that luxury feel:
"When you’re looking to give your outfit that little something extra, sometimes very simple changes like accessorising, can take your outfit from bland and lifeless, to vibrant.
“For me, luxury is all about the way a material feels on your skin; I want to feel comfortable. I love soft leathers and pure silk.
“It’s important to keep it simple. Pick one statement piece and minimise everything else. This focuses attention, bringing sophistication to your look, while being stylish.
"Whatever the occasion is that you're dressing for, incorporating such changes into your outfit can not only make you look instantly stylish, but also gives your confidence a boost. It's important to feel great in what you are wearing."
