Q: I’m a fashionista on a budget but I love the finer things. How do I make my outfits look expensive?

LTC: It’s all in the details. A 12 dollar H&M cardigan can look just as elegant as any high end piece with the right embellishments and accessories. Invest in a set of jeweled buttons to dress up your favorite cardi. Pair the piece with a cocktail ring and crisp denim trousers or boot cut jeans to achieve a polished, more expensive look.

Q: How do I wear red during the holidays without looking like little red riding hood?
