Update your wardrobe for FREE!

Good afternoon my fellow friends!  Today I’m going to give you a couple of ideas on how to update your wardrobe for fall 2010.  As you all know… school is coming up!  That means back-to-school shopping! Woooo!  Of course, it’s certainly not practical or economically possible to buy a whole new wardrobe… so here are 5 tips on how to make an (almost) brand new wardrobe at little or no cost!

1. ADD A BELT!

Adding a belt on the waist it an easy way to add a different look to any top.  You could pop a belt over a simple v-neck or too a sundress.  I am in love with this belt from Forever 21 because it’s only $2.50!  (Yes I’ve used it in a bunch of other posts…)

2.SWAP THE COLOR!

Instantly change the color of any top, bottom, or sweater with some cheap fabric dye from basically any store (Wal-Mart, A.C. Moore, Target…)  Try to get some dyes in hot fall colors like gold, olive, violet, or mahogany.

Purple

This pretty purple Tulip dye is $2.99 at ILovetoCreate.com.

3.CUFF ‘EM UP!

Give your jeans, shorts, and pants a new look by rolling them up!  Grab a cardigan and roll up the sleeves a little for a warm fall day.  You could roll up skinny jeans twice so they fall right above your ankle… So cute!

4.DIY IT UP!

So I have this tunic top with lace at the bottom… I never really liked the lace so I re-invented my shirt by chopping the lace off!  Now it’s a cropped top… Love it!  You can re-invent any top by cutting off the sleeves… Or maybe cut and old dress into a shirt!  Also, you could sew on some embellishments like buttons or flowers…

5.MIX AND MATCH OUTFITS!

Some people (me included!!) tend to wear the same outfits all the time!  It’s time to go through your closet and mix and match clothes that you never have before!  Example… Always wear the ruffled cardigan with the khaki shorts and flats??  How about wearing that cardi with some jeggings and ankle boots!?!  Stuff like that can make any old shirt feel new again!

So there are some tips on how to jazz up your wardrobe for free!  I’ll be sure to add any more that I think off!

    Nice post! I definitely think it is very important to DIY and change the existing pieces you already have in your closet.

    I like your post, but in England most of us have to wear uniform which is kind of annoying but at least there’s less deliberation on what to wear in the mornings! :) Keep posting! lilaclace x
