You know that “I have NOTHING to wear” feeling? Yeah, we are way too familiar with it. It usually happens while you’re staring at your closet full of clothing, am I right? Don’t fret, sometimes your wardrobe just needs a little pick me up—a breath of fresh air. It’s not that you don’t have anything to wear, you’re just bored of everything you own.
The idea of a wardrobe makeover is thrilling until you come to face the fact that it involves spending money you don’t have. Thankfully we have stumbled upon a few ideas that will benefit your wardrobe refresh! Keep reading if you’re into saving your coin but are in need of changing up your style.
Sell Your Unwanted Clothes!!!
If you have a closet or drawers full of pieces you don’t even touch anymore—or never even have—then make use out of them by selling them. You know what they say, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. Minimizing your wardrobe is the perfect way to make room for different items, or to just focus on what you really love. You can make the decision to sell your clothing for a little bit of cash or you can choose to donate—or both! The choice is yours. Remember to part ways with what you don’t need or wear, do not overthink this.
Have Someone Else Style You
Have someone close to you go through your closet and put together outfits for you—whether it be a friend, sibling, or parent. You might be looking at the same old outfit routines and need a pair of new eyes to help you out. Some of your pieces could be very versatile and you might not even realize, or maybe they will pair two items that you would never think to. Besides, who wouldn’t want to have a personal stylist? I highly recommend trying this one out before tossing anything.
Design Your Own Pieces from Old Ones
This one is for our inner Raven Baxter… If you feel like you’re up to this, it is definitely a great idea. You don’t have to be a legitimate fashion designer to do this, not even a little bit. This task could vary from sewing to placing a few pins on a denim jacket. Try cropping your own shirts, making your own tank tops, ironing decorative patches on pieces, whatever feels right. You can even try YouTubing DIY tutorials to help you out. The idea is to switch things up and feel brand new.
Style Pieces Differently
It’s time to focus on styling. Remember to have a good collection of basics in your collection, and then work around reusing them for different looks. Try adding a twist to your clothing, like cuffing your jeans or sleeves, tucking in your shirt, wearing high heels with casual attire—there are endless possibilities when it comes to creating looks. You have to tap into your imagination and creativity to make the most out of what you have.
