From Drab To Fab: Reinventing Your Wardrobe

Written by a contributing writer

We all have those days when we stare at our wardrobe and just think, “urgh!” And then, there are times when you decide that you absolutely hate your style and want to reinvent yourself. Maybe trends have changed or maybe it's just time for a new look.  But sometimes, even though it's time for new clothes, money is tight and you just can’t justify spending money on them.

But that doesn't mean you are stuck in your fashion rut.  Instead of buying new clothes, why not recycle your wardrobe?

A Lovely Bit Of Lace

When it comes to fashion, you can never ever go wrong with a bit of lace sewed onto something pre-loved. It could be a collarless shirt you want to dress up a bit- around the collar and around the sleeves, maybe even the hemline. It could be that you have a pair of old cut-off jean shorts that could be brought back to life with a little bit of lace. The world is yours to create, but trust us when we say, whatever it is you are adding lace to, it is going to look gorgeous.

Break Up The Routine

When we pick items out of our wardrobe, we tend to have an idea of what we are going to pair simply out of routine. This is where most people’s boredom with their own wardrobes comes into play. Shake things up a bit. Maybe you have some big and bold Simon G jewelry that you always pair with that little black dress of yours. Well, why not use this big and bold jewelry to bring some life to an otherwise "plain Jane" outfit. A plain white tee with baggy jeans will be totally transformed with eye-catching jewelry and high heels. Accessorizing differently is a free and easy way to  reinvent your wardrobe.

Dip It Down Low

If you’re staring at your wardrobe right now and thinking that everything you own is so boring, then you need to start dazzling yourself with a bit of dip-dying. Not only will this look big, bold, and beautiful, it's a frugal way of transforming your look. All you need is a large plastic bucket, a packet of fabric dye, some gloves, and a coat hanger. That's it. Oh, and the wardrobe garment that needs to be taken from drab to fab. The coat hanger is necessary not just for the drying process, but because you will want your garment to fall straight. How long you hold your clothing in the dye will depict the outcome. A few moments will create a light tie dye effect. Longer will create a bolder effect.

  1. Nice post. Every person nurtures an innate desire of looking good and feel ‘accepted’ in the socio-economic circle. The word fashion instantaneously brings to mind a flash of colour with a dash of glamour.
