A lot of us have been wondering what it means to be a bougie girl. The term has been thrown around so much that there’s no definitive answer. Some say it just means “rich” or “snobby”, but this isn’t true at all. It’s more about having a good sense of style and dressing on point at all times, even in the most casual situations. A bougie girl can never be caught off guard by her outfit choice (unless she wants to).
With that being said, here are some tips for how to dress bougie on a budget:
- Shop online for deals and coupons before buying anything new!
- Shop resale stores like Plato’s Closet where you can find unique vintage pieces without breaking the bank!
- Look up some DIY tutorials online if you want something that is too expensive otherwise (like shoe care products).
A bad and boujee outfit starts from the inside out.
From the inside out, a boujee girl will always be dressed to impress. The key to this is investing in good quality underwear and fragrances. For example, Boujee girls wear Victoria’s Secret bras because they are made of luxurious fabrics that feel soft and comfortable against the skin. They also love to wear Calvin Klein underwear because it smells amazing and is so durable that it will last for years. It’s important for you too invest in luxury lingerie because if you are going to spend money on clothes then its only logical that you should invest in an item that will make sure none of those hard-earned dollars go to waste!
Next up is body spray! Boujee girls always smell amazing because they use the best body sprays like Chanel No 5 or Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue. It’s not just about smelling nice though; it’s also about looking good as well! This means having freshly washed hair with no split ends (everyone has split ends but some people just don’t know it yet). A boujee girl will never leave her house without making sure their nails look perfect too – whether they’re polished with Essie polish or gel manicures done by professionals at nail salons near them.
Boujee girls wear designer shades.
Next on the list is sunglasses. You want to make sure you have designer shades and not just any old pair of cheap knock-offs. Sunglasses are an investment, so try to find something that will last you a while. I always say quality over quantity when it comes to buying clothes or accessories because they fall apart more easily than name brand items do. In addition, wearing designer shades will get you noticed by others who might not be able to afford the same thing but would love to try them on too!
You should also consider investing in some good quality sun protection for your eyes if you’re going to be spending time outside in direct sunlight this summer (and every other season). I always wear my sunglasses year round regardless of whether or not there’s bright sunshine out there; even if there isn’t much light coming through your windows at night, those UV rays still exist!
Bad and bougie girls have a signature scent.
A bad and bougie girl has a signature scent.
It’s important to choose a scent that is timeless, so don’t be afraid to try new scents, but also make sure that it’s not too strong or out of season.
If you’re going for something classic, then go for Chanel No 5 or Shalimar by Guerlain; if you want something more exotic, then try Angel by Thierry Mugler or Estee Lauder Pleasures. Personally speaking, I’m obsessed with the Tommy Girl perfume line—if I could only use one perfume (which would be ridiculous), it’d be Tommy Girl!
Get boujee nails done regularly.
If you want to get boujee nails, you have to be willing to invest in them. It’s not going to be cheap or painless, but if done right, it can be worth it. Before we dive into how much it will cost and how long it will take, let’s make sure we understand what makes a boujee nail different from the average manicure.
The first step toward getting boujee nails is choosing the shape of your acrylics: square or round? Boujee acrylics are generally square with rounded corners (think Instagram filters). The shape gives off an elegant vibe that sets off any outfit and makes people wonder how much money you spent on them.
Next up: color! You have plenty of options here depending on where you go—either neutral tones like white or black; bright colors like red or pink; glittery shades like gold; or even pastel ones such as mint green and baby blue (if this sounds familiar). And don’t forget about accenting! A simple rhinestone studded on top of each nail brings out their sophistication even more than before.
Keep your hair healthy if you want to look like a bad and bougie girl.
If you are a bad and bougie girl, like me, then you have to keep your hair healthy. If you want your curls to be nice and hydrated, don’t use heat on them. If you have relaxed or straightened hair, then use a deep conditioner regularly and don’t wait too long between haircuts. Also try using a silk pillowcase for better sleep and healthier locks.
If none of these things work for you, consider going to the salon once in awhile because they have professionals there who know what they’re doing when it comes to treating your hair well. Don’t wash it too often as that can dry out the ends of your tresses as well as strip away some of their natural oils which cause frizzies if left untreated for too long (or at all).
Boujee girls always get their makeup professionally done for special occasions.
Boujee girls always get their makeup professionally done for special occasions. They know that if you don’t have a solid base, nothing else will even matter! It will be like putting on a fancy dress and then wearing Walmart flip flops with it. You can’t do that! Especially when you are in the presence of people who are used to seeing only the best things in life, why would you want to show up looking like a clown or what they call “trashy?”
Though there are many ways of applying makeup, some women prefer using brushes while others prefer using sponges (makeup sponges). However, one thing remains certain: when applying makeup on your face, your hands should always be clean before starting so that germs won’t enter through any cracks or crevices within your fingers which could cause pimples later down the line (and nobody wants those). This is especially true if you’re going out after work because there’s nothing worse than showing up at happy hour looking like a hot mess with unkempt hair and messy eyeshadow smudges around them due to lackadaisical cleaning skills beforehand.”
Boujee girls will not be caught wearing cheap accessories.
Boujee girls will not be caught wearing cheap accessories.
Your accessories are just as important as the rest of your outfit, so it’s important to find a reputable company to buy from. Some of our favorite brands include Swarovski and Pandora, which have high quality jewelry that never goes out of style. You should never buy anything that looks fake or cheap; boujee girls wouldn’t be caught dead in such an accessory!
A bad and boujee outfit is all about layers, fur, and bling.
A good and boujee outfit is all about blending in. A bad and boujee outfit is all about standing out—but not in a way that’s too obvious. The key to dressing a boujee look is to layer your clothing items with each other, add some fur, and top it off with bling.
Fur has been trending for years now, but what makes this trend so interesting? Fur isn’t just reserved for jackets or coats anymore! You can get fur anywhere from your head down to your toes—literally! Fur boots are great for winter weather because they keep your feet nice and warm without having to wear two pairs of socks like you would do if you were wearing regular boots or sneakers.
Your coat should be fluffy enough that it obscures the layers underneath it but not so fluffy that it looks completely ridiculous (unless you’re going for that look). If this sounds like something you might want then go ahead! Make sure though that when choosing a coat there are more than enough pockets so that things such as wallets won’t fall out while moving around town shopping at Whole Foods (which everyone knows is where all the best-dressed people go).
Bougies are never caught wearing shoes that don’t match their outfits.
Bougies are never caught wearing shoes that don’t match their outfits. This is a cardinal sin of fashion and will instantly turn you into a “regular person” and not a boujee. The trick to dressing like a boujee is to layer your clothes in the right way, so it looks like you put effort into it when really you just threw on some things that were lying around your house. You can always throw on some fur and bling if you want to be extra-bougie!
To get started, pick out one or two colors from your closet as a base color palette for all of your outfits. Once you have this picked out, stick with it for every single outfit so that people know what kind of person they are dealing with: an elegant boujee or just an old regular person?
Have a signature item so people can identify you as a bad and boujee queen!
To be a bad and boujee queen, you need to have a signature item!
A signature item is something that helps people recognize who you are and makes them feel like they know your style.
For example, I love wearing gold earrings (in any shape!) because everyone knows that’s my thing. If I’m at a party and someone compliments my earrings, then we can bond over our mutual love for jewelry (and how much money we spent on it). It’s also fun when people ask me where I got my earrings because I can say that they were made by hand by an artisan in Tuscany or something.
That’s why having a signature item is so important: it shows other people who you are while letting them know what kind of style vibe they should expect from you.
Forget basic – learn how to dress bad and bougie!
Forget basic – learn how to dress bad and bougie!
Dressing bad and bougie is all about layers, fur, and bling. You need to have a signature item so people can identify you as a bad and boujee queen! In addition to your signature item, it’s important that you wear enough layers so that people can’t tell what you’re wearing underneath. This way, whenever someone asks what you’re wearing without looking closely at your outfit, they’ll just assume it’s expensive stuff from the mall or something from H&M; but if they do look closely at it there will be no way for them to tell because of all those layers!
Congratulations, you’re now a boujee. How do you feel? Are your clothes cleaner than they were before? Do they smell like cedar and lavender instead of that stench of shame and regret that comes with wearing a shirt that isn’t ironed properly?
If so, please let me know in the comments below. I want to hear from you! Also if there’s anything else you want to ask me about being boujee or any other topic just reach out on my social media accounts (linked above).
Let’s get one thing straight: you don’t have to be a bad and boujee girl to dress like one. In fact, if you’re not one yet, we’ve got some pointers for how to get there.
The first step is identifying what being a bad and boujee girl means for yourself. Are you interested in trying on new styles? Do you want to work with your natural hair? Maybe this lifestyle isn’t your cup of tea, but you still want others who are involved in it (and maybe even yourself) to feel represented by its clothing choices and interests.
If this is the case, then that’s great! Now that we know what kind of person is reading this article and why they’re doing so, let’s talk about what bougie means in slang terms: A person who can afford expensive goods or services; a member of the upper class; an affluent individual; someone with high social status or wealth
