  27. corset: forever 21
  28. thrifted pink trousers
  29. thrifted pleated skirt

My purpose for doing the challenge was to show my ways of maximizing the use of clothes without breaking the bank because we don’t have to buy new clothes to feel like we have a whole new different wardrobe.

here are a few tricks:

  • accessorize – invest in bold accessories, they give just the punch you need to a boring old shirt!
  • something borrowed – trust me, no matter how different your styles maybe, there are always nice things you can find in your mom or sister’s closet
  • multi ways – not everything is what it seems. A skirt is not just a skirt anymore, wear a long skirt as a dress, or wear a dress as a top, you can also use a scarf as a cover up.
  • layering – layering clothes is a convinient trick to cheat your way into looking like you’re wearing something new and different.
  • knots – tie a shirt in the middle,on the side side or even knot it in the back. You will automatically have a fitted or a midriff top.
  • underwear as outerwear – corsets can be worn as tube tops. Bras and bikini tops can be worn as bandeau’s peeping out of your blouse or button down shirt. Do it a la Material Girl.
There are other bazillion ways to look like you just bought a whole new wardrobe, you just need to be more creative, to think outside the box and to not always settle on making spontaneous splurges =)
