When the world says that the end of something is the beginning of something else, it also applies to your wardrobe. When attire is old, and you no longer want it, the best thing to do is begin a new journey with it but as something different. Here is how to make your old clothes new without sweating it.
Make a T-shirt Scarf
If you have any old t-shirt lying around, take a pair of scissors and cut it into fine strips. Tie these strips together with a smaller strip and create a knot at the end of the strips. Let the part that is not knotted be on the front. Other than this, you can also make an infinity scarf and add polka dots to it.
Making sleeve bow ties will add a new look to your old shirt and give you the urge to keep wearing it. All you need is to cut off a small piece of the shoulder area. Take hold of the remaining part of the sleeve and pull it to the centre and hold that in place with a small material that was cut out and some washable glue.
Make a Crop Top
This is the easiest way to transform your old t-shirt. All you need is a pair of scissors, and an old t-shirt, leggings, or blouse. Crop tops are rocking the streets, and this is an excellent way to join the trend. It is easy and very fast. When you use leggings, you will get a deep v-neck shape.
Make a Sexy Corset Top
If you have a corset that you no longer wear, all you need to add to it is a piece of lace, and you have a new outfit. Use black lace for elegance. Add lace to the front part so that you can have a bareback, lace corset top.
Reinvent Your Skirt
Take your old skirt and add a peplum to it to give it a whole new look. The peplum can be the same colour or a different colour.
Give Your Jeans a Rugged Look
All you need is a pair of scissors or razor blade. Cut out your pair of jeans around the thighs region going down. You can cut out stars, love shape, rectangles, and so on.
Add Pearls to Your Collar
If you have a dress with a collar or a blouse, you can add pearls to the collar to make it new. Use different colors to create variety and add color.
All these are fun ideas to work with to make good use of old clothes instead of throwing them away which will not be justice.
Have you ever felt like trying to make a new outfit from some of your old friends? You know those pieces that you just loved, that everyone else commented on, that you just couldn’t bear to part with? Even though they are seasons old? This outfit is that type of outfit – a new combination of some old colourful classics that are so comfortable. I would never think to donate them to charity.
Most of the regular readers of my blog would be used to my red lips and nails by now. They are sort of like my trademark. I often think I am going to try a new nail colour but I can never quite bring myself to do it. A new nail colour would mean a new lip colour too because I love to match. However nothing makes my teeth seem whiter than my trusty red lipstick. Quite simple really – then I looked at what I could find within the depths of my wardrobe that was red. Check out the result below.
Since it was pretty chilly in Sydney on the weekend, I’ve actually got two other black jumpers on under my Alexander Wang jumper that you can see below. That’s a great tip for winter by the way – think about layering and the item that you will wear over the top of everything. Often it is best to buy your coat or over-jumper one size larger – so you can fit everything on underneath!
My red Balenciaga leather leggings got another outing because I needed to match my Burberry bag. I was scouting future locations for some upcoming collaboration posts – so I needed my hands free. This shoulder bag helped in that regard.
The only things left to add were a good sturdy pair of sneakers and some sunglasses!
