How to Be a Material Gworl According to Lara Billionaire

March 31, 2022

A material gworl is a person who’s attracted to the finer things of life and strives to attain them. If you know Lara Billionaire from Twitter, you’ll know that she fits this description perfectly. And so as she’s giving her proven tips on how to be a material gworl, let’s make sure to jot things down. Because we too want to be material gworls. Amen??

Fashion sense is important

Material gworls have great fashion sense and love to buy clothes. But with fashion, it’s not one size fits all. You need to find out what your style is and shop accordingly. Start by knowing your favourite colour. You’ll find that when you wear things in your favourite colour often, you’re able to add other things that compliment that colour. It’s also important that you wear only things that make you comfortable. 

You can never have too many shoes

I’ve loved shoes for the longest time. I remember when I had just started secondary school and my mum sent me 15 pairs of school shoes. That’s when my love for shoes started. As a material gworl, you can never have enough shoes. What I will say, though, is that you find a way to balance comfort and style. I love wearing unique shoes that are different from the norm, but I always prioritize comfort. That’s the first thing I think about before I even think about the price.

Accessorise with Jewellery 

Apart from clothes and shoes, I also love good jewellery. As a material gworl, you must know how to accessorise. It doesn’t always have to be expensive. With the right jewellery, you can still give off luxurious material gworl vibes.

Get the right perfumes 

I’m not exactly a perfume head. What I would say is buy the ones that smell nice. Get recommendations from your friends or from social media. I get my perfume recommendations from TikTok, and it’s been great so far.

Gifts

As a child, whenever I was out with my grandma, people wanted to carry me, buy me things and my existence really just brought them joy. Reason why? I have no idea. My maternal uncles and aunties used to give me more money than I needed. I’ve been receiving gifts all my life and I’ve gotten used to it. As a Material gworl, be very open to receiving gifts.

Money 

You cannot be a material gworl without money. If not, how will you sponsor your lifestyle or all the things you’d like to get for yourself? You have to have money. I truly believe that the best type of material gworl is a sponsored one. As the first child, grandchild, and great-grandchild, I enjoyed a lot of things. Everything came from a place of love, so it was easy to know that everything I desire, I go receive.Now that I’m older, I hate that I have to work to maintain the lifestyle they introduced me to, but once a material gworl, always a material gworl. 

Be Yourself 

Material gworlism is subjective and there isn’t one way to be a material gworl. Some may say it’s based on the clothes you wear, others may say it’s based on the company you keep. It depends on your lifestyle in general. In essence, stay true to yourself, regardless of what others think.
