Sometimes we look at our wardrobes, we realize that there are so many clothes and accessories that we have not worn for such a long time. Instead of despairing the waste, it is better to take some DIY fashion concepts and change the wasted outfits and accessories into something of fashionable value. However, when we talk of fashion, the mind immediately turns to costly and rare collection of clothes that designers of great stature keep designing.
There is no doubt that the fashion outfits and accessories that these designers produce are great but not many can afford this. Having said that, it does not really mean that you give up on being dressed fashionably and well. What it means is that we go about it the smart way and borrow the basic ideas from trends that are current in fashion and utilize at working them into the clothes that you do have. What it needs however, is good imagination and lots of work.You should also see the glorious vision of girls in white dress

When you think about it, then the doubt as to whether it is possible to really do this. While this doubt is valid, you need to think about if from another point of view, which essentially means that even if your experiments do not work out, you were not wearing these clothes in the first place. However, you succeed then you have a lot of refurbished fashionable things to wear and use. What you need to do to start with is collect some items to get started:
- Nice set of scissors
- Different colored thread and needles
- Spangles, laces, sequins, beads and other such things
- Glue and adhesives
- Satin ribbons, thread and needle for crochet
Here is a list of DIY things to do to bring your wardrobe up to date based on the latest fashion trends:
Bling those shoes up to date: Using some simple things like spangles and sequins, just turn those old shoes into something up to date and trendy. What you need is to use your imagination and keep working on the shoes in a symmetrical manner.
Use crochet to add sleeves or collar to an old top: This is a nice skill and will come in handy to take an old top on which the collar or sleeves have become old and add new ones. This can be either in a matching or contrasting color to create an interesting effect.
Add pizazz to hair accessories:The best part of renewing old hair accessories with some glitter and stars is that you need not really concern yourself with the end results. Even if things go slightly awry, it is easy enough to correct or simply get rid of the old hair accessory as it has not cost you anything.
Singles to pendants: When you lose one in a pair of earrings, it can really be frustrating especially when the single earring in question is a favorite. What you can do is simply make a few changes in the earring to make it into an unusual pendant and keep wearing it.
Convert jeans: This is an age old idea where you convert an old pair of jeans into shorts but if you feel this is not going to work out, then you can do other things with the jeans. You can convert the jeans into a bag or even use to hold letters and other things with a few tweaks.
Convert old clothes to patchwork bags: This is a simple enough idea that you can do with bits and pieces from several garments in the wardrobe that you no longer using. Or even make a quilt with old T shirts as a way of using them and not losing the memories.
