How to Revamp Your Wardrobe Without Breaking the Bank
Feel like you wear the same thing every week? Clothes too big, too small, worn or torn? Here is how to take your wardrobe and change it up without buying all new things.
1For example have a pile for size issues, one for rips and holes, one for things with stains or marks and one for the things you feel like you wear too often or never wear at all. Then put all the items that do not fit into any of your piles and put them back so you are only looking at the problem clothing.
2If the stain does not come out after two cycles move it to a new pile and use the fabric for patches.
3Things that need a patch can be done so with matching material as not to notice or a different pattern to give it a whole new look!
4If a tee shirt is too big you can cut and tie it to make it fit you better and look very cute. Look up online how to "batwing" tee shirts and how to cut the back and sides into patterns. Alternatively, if you don't want to have it completely cut up you and cut out the neck and wear it as a slouchy tee. Things that are too small can be cut into patches for other items.
5Is it itchy? If so cut out the tags or wear something under it to combat the itch. Is it too bold? If so, wear it with plain things make it the only statement in your outfit. If it's last season or outdated, make it into a throwback look and pair it with things that are in style and make a statement!
6Study the colors and styles, or maybe snap a few pictures of them. And off to the thrift store you go! Look for new items that would go well with your old over worn clothes that will transform them. Also look for staple pieces like a good fitting jean, solid color tops and basic accessories. You may also want to look for sweaters and outerwear depending on your location.
