Visible panty lines and bra straps diminish your look, invest on your undergarments.

Since we’re working on a low budget and more cheap clothes might be purchased, it is important to pay attention to how transparent they are, their sleeves and so on.

You could try out this transparency test, put your palm inside the piece of cloth against a source of light if you can see your palms visibly, that means the cloth would be too transparent and never wear a white bra under a white chiffon top, wear black instead.

12. Do more thrifting
