It is absolutely natural to feel that when you are looking through your wardrobe that nothing seems to fit, or it doesn’t suit who you want to be. There are likely items that do not fit you. Maybe you have changed in size or shape. Fortunately, not everything is lost, there are so many different ways you can revitalize your fashion sense and style. You will be glad to know that it does not involve throwing everything out or spending lots of money on a completely new wardrobe. If you are looking for somewhere to start, then here is a little advice for you.
You may be surprised how easy it is to change your look by simply changing your shoes or by employing them in a different way. If you want to present, yourself as a taller and slimmer person then you may want to invest in elevator boots. If you want to have a matching pair of shoes with your outfit, then you should make sure that your shoes are one shade darker than your outfit. The difference will not be massively noticeable in color, but it will stop you from clashing your colors. Never forget that you can match your shoes and your outfit for both formal and informal events. It will keep your look fresh and fashionable.
One way you can bring fashion back to your look is to start cuffing your trouser hem. It is quite easy to add elastic cuffing and can change your wide-legged trousers to take a completely new shape. There are plenty of videos online to help you do it. The simplest way to make it work is to make a small opening at the seam of an existing hem, then you can feed the elastic using a safety pin and tie the elastic with a knot. All you need to do then is to sew the opening closed. Before you know it, you will have transformed your old trousers.
One of the easiest things to do is to change men’s old shirts into a statement fashion piece. They can become vintage and customized pieces that will be unique to you and your style. It is also a great way to create a low-waste fashion. A great boon for anyone concerned about the climate. Office shirts tend to be crisp and made of good quality fabric. This makes them a great option for upcycling and saves your clothes from rotting in your wardrobe or a charity shop.
You should never throw your denim away. Denim upcycling has become more and more popular in recent years. Even professional designers have started working with various bits of contrasting denim to create new styles. You can simply taper the jeans into something slimmer or even try and parch your denim with other kinds of it to create a new pattern. More interesting designers have even begun using the calves of rubbished jeans to create the sleeves of baggy jumpers. As long as you like a frayed look to your clothes then recycling your denim may be the way to go.
Scarves are such a reliable gift that you get year in and year out, but you will rarely wear them all. You may drag them out in the winter months but will likely have a handful that you cycle through. You can look at changing your scarves into accessories like scrunchies. This can be done by hand. All you need is a piece of elastic, sew your scarf into a long tube then put the elastic through the tube and scrunch it up before you sew it closed. This will help you use up your old scarves and make sure you have lots of accessories to change your look.
This is a trend from the past that has come to the present swinging strongly. It became as popular as baking did during the lockdowns. It is a great way to rejuvenate those washed-out cotton T-shirts and old socks. You can reduce the impact of your wardrobe on the environment by dying them using natural colors. It is quite easy to do and can create a unique and bespoke piece in your wardrobe that only you own.
Rejuvenating your look
It is no easy feat, but this should not stop you. Pick a few of your older pieces and start experimenting. The beauty of this method is that if you ruin the clothing, you were likely going to throw it away anyway.
