Summer is well and truly here, but then so is our need to update our wardrobes and embrace the latest trends. It can be a difficult time of year for many when it comes to dressing for your body shape or embracing new styles. The heat can play a huge part in what you wear, and summer can have a huge impact on how you feel about yourself with a lot of talk about bikini bodies and such. However, it shouldn’t always be about that and revamping your summer wardrobe can actually be a fun thing to do. But, not all of us have money laying around to buy a completely new range, which is why I thought I would share with you some of the quick and easy hacks you can utilise for your summer wardrobe. Interested? Read on to find out how.
Revamp some of your older items
This time of year means that you are searching high and low for more summer appropriate clothes, so you may find yourself digging out some of your most loved and wearable items from summers gone by. However, you may find that some of those items don’t quit fit the same or look as good as they once did. But don’t threat, this is where you can get a little creative. It doesn’t cost much to reinvent those much-loved items. Perhaps cutting trousers into funky shorts. Adding some motifs or design elements to t-shirts or jackets. You could even cut sleeves off a winter top to make it appropriate for summer. There are some amazing ideas on Pinterest that will have you brimming with inspiration, and best of all, you have them all sat there waiting for your attention.
Utilise coupons and discount codes
Of course, there will always be trends that you are wanting to embrace or items that are needing replacing, so you may have to hit the shops at some point. But try and be savvy with where and how you shop. Instead, seek out coupons or discount codes that will help reduce the overall cost. Looking on websites here can often highlight some of the best savings. This means that you are investing in your wardrobe for a fraction of the original cost. Saving your money for other things.
Shop on websites like eBay
Just because it might be pre-owned, it doesn’t mean that you can’t get much wear out of them yourself. Often people have huge clear outs of their wardrobes during the change of season, and sell a lot of great quality items at bargain prices. You could even do this yourself to generate some extra income for your next purchases.
Consider a capsule wardrobe instead
Finally, you don’t need to have a lot of clothes in your wardrobe to be stylish. Making key choices and investing in pieces of clothing that you can mix and match, can often be a great financial and style decision. A capsule wardrobe means that different items of clothing can be put together to create numerous different outfit options. Less cost and more style, what isn’t to love?
I hope you find these quick and easy hacks useful.
