Spring is right around the corner and with it comes gorgeous weather, beautiful flowers and an overall feeling of newness. It’s also a great time to revamp your wardrobe.
However, revamping one’s wardrobe can be a very expensive endeavor. The good news is that you can give your closet a complete makeover without spending unnecessary money. By following these simple tips, you can completely revamp your wardrobe without breaking the bank.
1. Toss What You Don’t Wear
The best way to start giving your closet a makeover is to get rid of what you don’t wear. This means fully emptying out your closet and going through every item piece by piece. If you haven’t worn it in two years, toss it.
Another advantage to clearing out your closet is that you’ll be able to actually see everything that you own. By throwing out items that you don’t wear, you’ll likely rediscover great pieces that you forgot you had.
However, there are some items that you should never throw out because they never go out of style. Items like leather jackets and statement blazers are classic items that are incredibly versatile.
2. Get Organized
Now that your closet is free of items that you don’t wear, you can get organized. Separate items by color or style. By keeping your closet organized, you will be able to find specific items more easily in the future.
3. Grab Some Versatile Staple Items
Pick up some affordable items that are highly versatile. Items like ribbed tank tops, classic blazers and pencil skirts in solid colors can be paired with many different pieces to achieve a variety of looks.
3. Pick Up Some Accessories with Personality
With some unique accessories, you can convert a simple item like a sleeveless black dress into something spectacular.
4. Stick to What You Have
If you see an outfit on a celebrity that catches your attention, don’t run out to the store to buy the same look. Instead, try recreating the look with items that are already in your closet.
5. Find Some Inspiration
Pick up a few fashion magazines and cut out pictures of styles that appeal to you. Create a mood board in your home from which you can draw inspiration when you go shopping. This way, you’ll be more focused when it’s time to spend money on new clothes.
6. Go Thrifting
Instead of spending top dollar on new items, visit some local thrift shops. Chances are that you will find amazing and unique pieces for next to nothing.
7. Get Crafty
Don’t be afraid to give an old piece new life. If you have a great maxi dress but you’re so over that look, cut off a portion of the skirt so that you can wear it in a totally new way
These wardrobe tips will help you get ready for spring fashion without spending tons of money.
