Tips To Revamp Your Old Clothes Into Something New

It’s hard to keep up with the ever-changing fashion trends. When you buy new garments and find the perfect way to rock them, they are no longer in trend. Instead, why not be thrifty and revamp your old clothes into something new? You just have to get creative and find new ways to reuse them that fit the latest fashion trends. Here are some tips to revamp your old clothes into something chic and trendy.

1. Sweaters

New sweater styles are trending every winter. However, this doesn’t mean you have to go shopping every year. Take your old, plain, cozy, and comfortable sweater, sew (or use hot glue if you are not good at stitching) a decorative cord in a pattern of your choice (you can always take inspiration from the internet), and voila! You have revamped your old sweater into something new. You can even make felt patches and glue them onto your sweaters.

2. Jeans

Instead of buying a new pair of jeans to keep up with the latest styles cropping up every other day, paint some intricate designs on your old jeans with the help of fabric paint to give them a new look. You can even dye, bleach, or give them a distressed look.

Alternatively, embroider your old pair or turn them into cuffed or wide-legged jeans with a bit of creativity. If you aren’t confident about your artistic abilities, take a pair of scissors and turn them into denim shorts. This is one of the easiest ways to revamp your old pair of pants.

3. Shirts

We are sure plenty of shirts must be stacked up in your closet, pleading to be worn again. Take them out and turn them into a cropped wrap blouse. If you are into half-and-half shirts, cut two contrasting button-down shirts in half and connect them for a designer look on a budget. You will be surprised to see how easily you can revamp your old clothes into something new.

4. Tops

No matter how small, tight, loose, or well-fitted your top is, you can always revamp your old clothes with creative DIYs. You can turn loose T-shirts into dresses or change them from a U-neckline top to a halter neckline top. You can also tie-dye your plain T-shirt into new colors to make it more interesting. The options are limitless.

If you don’t want to do any major DIY but still reuse your old t-shirt, cut that quote or design from it and frame it for a unique art piece. Moreover, you can make chokers from the t-shirt scraps or turn them into cushions or pillow covers.

5. Hoodies

If you want to give those warm and snuggly hoodies a makeover, cut the sides and add grommets and ties to turn your hoodie into an uber-stylish layering piece ideal for winter. You can also try making sweatshirts from the hoodies.

If you still can’t figure out how to revamp your old clothes, donate them to a shelter or someone in need before shopping for new ones. Alternatively, you can sell them online (on websites that accept secondhand items) or try out fun DIY projects with your kids.
