fashion How to dress next-level chic when you’re on a strict budget. Basmah Qazi

I know, I know, this seems juvenile but I can’t stress enough how important this is. 

I get it, ironing is tedious and time-consuming. In fact, it’s one of my most hated tasks, but I can’t sit here and deny the impact of a well-steamed garment.

Looking chic is all about looking put together, and a crinkled shirt or a pant with no crease can make you look unkempt. Get into the habit of ironing your clothes the night before so it’s ready to go in the morning, that way, you’ll walk out wearing a wrinkle-free outfit without having to add another morning chore to your list.

If you really don’t want to iron or steam your clothes, then head to your local grocery store and grab yourself a wrinkle releaser. It won’t give you as good of a result, but it helps.

Pay attention to the details.
