Iron Your Clothes
It may sound simple, but you can’t underestimate quite how messy creased clothes will make you look and feel. Whether it’s a handheld steamer (the whole SheerLuxe team is obsessed with this one here) or just getting up a few minutes earlier to get the iron out, looking clean and presentable is the first step to feeling more polished.
Get Things Repaired
Whether it’s an unstitched hemline, missing heel cap or scuffed leather on a bag, it’s the small details that will amount to an unpolished look. We recommend getting every button replaced, and sending every damaged accessory straight to The Rectory, who restore fashion items to their former, polished glory.

Invest In Timeless Handbags
This rule pervades every how-to list, whether that’s how to look more expensive, be more glamorous or, of course, to always look polished. A great handbag (or a smart pair of boots) will elevate even the most inexpensive of outfits. Just make sure you take good care of them – nothing makes a wardrobe look less polished than bashed-up leather. Not sure which to go for? We ran through everything you need to know about investing in a handbag here.
