‘Things that make you look cheap, my names El and I do trend forecasting,’ the expert said.
‘The first thing we have is cheap satin, this type of satin is made from low quality silk and polyester and pulls really easily.’
She explained that you can see the lines showing the weave of the fabric on cheap satin, signifying low quality.
‘Instead go for double satin, it’s a lot thicker and heavier and easier to wear,’ Eloise advised.
For ‘high quality finishes’ she recommended dresses from the Silk Laundry or Bec & Bridge which range from $280 to $320.
The comments offended many of Eloise’s followers who say they can’t afford more expensive products.
‘Most of us cannot afford a brand new silk garment,’ one woman said.

‘It looks cheaper because it is, I can’t afford actual satin,’ another wrote.
‘How to not look cheap: have money,’ another wrote.
‘Read the room,’ another commented.
Previously, Eloise slammed tarnished jewellery as a dead giveaway of being cheap.
She said tarnished jewellery looks very obvious when it leaves a green mark on your skin, or if you see a pendant with a design that is black on the inside.
‘I’m not saying you go buy really expensive jewellery but buy high quality jewellery,’ she recommended.
If you’re looking for high quality pieces, the fashion expert recommended a $59 necklace and $65 ring (pictured) from Saab. She said the Australian brand has ‘high quality jewellery that doesn’t tarnish’ and you can wear in the water as well as being ‘really on trend’

Many of Eloise’s followers reached out to say that expensive silver can tarnish but it can be fixed up using silver polish.
‘This seems a tad out of touch.’ one woman said about the TikTok video.
‘What’s wrong with something being cheap?’ another asked.
