    We can't all be rich. Why not learn how to be a poser like the rest of us?

    Here are some tips and tricks sure to make you look and sound richer even if you're broke like the rest of us.

    Follow the suggestions below and look rich like the rest of us.

    Language

    Even if you only graduated from high school, here's how to sound like you went to Harvard. The key thing to remember about dropping big words is that not all big words are suited to everyday conversation. You want to learn those big buzz words that rich people throw around at cocktail parties . Here are some examples:

    faux, guache, chicque or passe - These all can be used on your next shopping trip with your rich friends. Just remember to look them up and pronounce them correctly. (Definitions from the left: Fake, cheap, fancy, outdated)

    vernacular

    This is just a fancy word for vocabulary. Specifically vernacular refers the particular set of words and phrases that you grew up with in your hometown.

    moratorium

    Used in a sentence this word means putting a stop to something. Example: (There should be a moratorium on animal testing because it's cruel and inhumane.)

    existential

    This refers to a philosphical movement which questioned the meaning of life in the 19th century. (That is so existential) or (She's obviously going through some kind of existential crisis) works just fine.

    Plebs

    This is what rich people use to diss the poor. "What a pleb" , or "How plebian" roughly translates to: how low class or ghetto.

    Clothes

    Fit is crucial. You can still look rich without buying a three piece suit, but your clothes need to fit. For women, if you regularly sport a muffin top or plumber's crack because your pants are too tight, bra straps because your top doesn't have enough coverage, or outfits with circular cutouts, you will be pegged as ghetto and appropriately snubbed. Rich people wear loose, flowing, tasteful garments in the daylight and look like they've just come from lounging on their yacht. It also doesn't hurt to go business casual with a trendy blazer over jeans. If they save the spandex for the club, so should you.

    For men, it's just the opposite. Gangsters and pimps wear baggy clothes because they can't afford to get them tailored. Go out grandpa style, hike up those pants. If Kanye can rock the pink sweater vest and golfing pants then so can you.

    Shoes

    No plastic please. Nothing says payless like sky-blue plastic wedges where your heel is hanging off the back. For men, stick with simplicity, if you spent three hundred dollars on gators with italian leather tassles, you don't look rich. And leave the sneakers for the gym.

    Hair

    If you've ever dyed your hair a color that doesn't occur in nature, this one's for you. Orange, blue, yellow (not blond), purple, green or pink are the colors of poverty. Try to stick with solid colors, natural highlights, and shoulder length bobs. For men, dial down the grease and stick with downy soft feathered styles.Rich people like to blend in so that they won't get mugged.

    Overall, following these tips is sure to get your foot in the door of richness. Or at the very least, get you a better table at your restaurant.

    我们不成壮大家都成为富人。既然云云,为什么不像其他人一样学着虚张声势呢?

    这里有些要领和诀要可以让你看起来和听起来更富有纵然你和其他人一样一文不名的。

    依照以下提议你就会看起来像其他人一样富有。

    说话

    纵然你只有高中卒业的学历,这里有些提议让你听起来你在哈佛深造过。关键点是你要记取:年夜话之以是戳穿是由于并不是悉数的年夜话都得当一般扳谈的。你要学会那些富人们在鸡尾酒宴会上各处可用的一些无意偶然义的年夜话。这里有些列子。

    * Faux, guache, chicque or passé---这些在你下回与你伴侣逛街的时辰可以使用的词。只要记得查下这些词的意思然后发音精确就可以了。(左边词的评释:假的,克己,别致的,过期的)

    * 花俏

    这只不过是词汇的花俏名称。花俏的词汇出格涉及到一些你在你生长的老家所用到的一些出格词组。

    * 延期偿付

    用在一个句子中,这个词暗示遏制做某事。 比如(由于这种举动既惨酷又没人道,以是必需遏制对动物做尝试。

    * 存在的

    这个涉及到19世纪有关质疑生命意义的哲学行为,像在(那太存在主义了)可能(显然她可以挺过这些存在的危急)句子中都可以使用这词。

    * 平平易近

    这是富人用来形容贫平易近的词,"镇定平易近了",可能"多么平平易近啊"概略的翻译为:多么下等的阶层可能穷汉窟。

    衣着

    契合是关键。只要衣服契合,纵然你没有3件套,你可以仍然看起来像富人。对女士来说,要是由于你的裤子太紧而时常炫耀你腰围的赘肉可能暴露屁股沟,又可能因上身没有充足的遮掩物可能因穿露肩装而暴露你的文胸肩带,那么你就会被示为穷汉,毫无疑问地被疏落。 富人们白日穿宽松的,有线条感的且有品位的衣服,看起来他们好象刚从他们游艇的歇息室出来。牛仔裤搭配时尚的便装去谈买卖也无不妥。

    对士来说,恰恰相反。匪徒和皮条客穿戴宽松的衣服是由于他们承担不起两省定做的钱。扔失这些老式服装梳妆,让那些裤子飞舞起来吧。 要是肯伊能让粉红毛背心和高尔夫裤子变的很时髦,那么你同样做到。

    鞋子

    切切别穿塑胶鞋。没有什么比那些天蓝色的让你的脚后跟挂在鞋外的塑胶坡跟鞋看起来更便宜的了。对男士来说,要坚持简约魄力气焰,要是你花300多美元买双带故意年夜利皮质流苏的鳄鱼鞋,你看起来根柢就不像富人。把这些胶底行为鞋留到健身房去用吧。

    发型

    要是你染的发色看起来不自然的话,那这不得当你。橘色,蓝色,黄色(不是金色的)紫色,绿色可能粉色都是穷汉的颜色。对女士来说最好是弄些单一的发色,颜色看起来要自然,头发长度在肩上下。对男士来说,不要涂太多的润滑脂,发型要看起来优柔蓬松。富人喜欢与年夜家相融合这样就不会被人进攻。

    总之,依照这些要领必定可以让你跨入富人的门槛。可能至少你在住的旅舍可以获得对照好的对待。
