Top 10: Ways to Revamp Your Wardrobe


1. Dig around in your closet: You never know what you’ll find buried under that pile of laundry you’ve been meaning to wash for a few months now.

2. Borrow from a friend: It’s the easiest and cheapest way to play dress up, since you’re no longer five years old and in your mother’s closet.

3. Speaking of mom’s closet: Why not try there? You never know if she happened to hold onto some clothes from when she was younger and about your size. Sentimental vintage, anyone?

4. Accessorize: It’s amazing how different a dress looks once you add a belt, some jewelry and a jacket.

5. Think of different ways to wear the same thingExample: A white v-neck with jeans looks very different than a white v-neck tucked into a high-waisted skirt, completed with a cardigan.

6.Alter: If you have something that is too big or too long, consider cutting it down or sewing it to a tighter fit. How about making that shirt that’s a little too small a crop top?

7. Sell: There are a lot of sites that will buy your old clothes that are in good condition, and you can spend that money on a few new items to complete your wardrobe!

 8. Rent: There are also a lot of sites where you can rent someone else’s clothes, such as Rent the Runway, if you’re looking for something different for a special occasion.

 9. Challenge yourself to try something different: May I suggest starting with: “Next week, I’m going to only wear sweatpants when I’m sleeping.”

10. And most of all, be inspired: Channel your inner Audrey Hepburn or Stacy London. Let fashion icons influence you, but don’t ever forget your own personal style. That’s what makes your fashion unique.
