Celebrities like Victoria Beckham are always effortlessly chic whenever they are spotted out and about town. These A-listers normally dress in head-to-toe designer garb, making them look ultra stylish and very rich.
Of course, not all of us are blessed with gold credit cards, and because we have limited budgets, we like to stick to practical pieces.
The great news is that you don’t really need designer pieces to make your outfit seem more expensive. One trick to rocking a polished and expensive-looking ensemble is a great handbag. Everyone — from Victoria Beckham to fashion bloggers — knows the importance of a purse to the overall impact of an outfit. If you want to appear expensive, make sure to choose the right accessories. Go for structured handbags done in solid and neutral colors or those with luxurious details, such as snakeskin or croc skin. You can use faux leather bags, too, as long as the details are tasteful.
We spotted Victoria being her usual chic self in a Balmain leopard-print skirt paired with a black top and black pointed-toe pumps. Keeping to her favorite color scheme, Posh finished with a simple black framed bag with a chain strap.

Fashion blogger Micah G. also demonstrated how to look polished — she used a structured Furla leather tote to style her outfit consisting of a sequined top, cropped pants, and a black blazer. We absolutely love her sleek and chic style!
