Eight Simple Ideas For Reworking Your Closet

Style Jul 2, 2019

I’ve been reading so much about the circular economy and how we can all get involved, and I’ve come to realise that the easiest place to start is in your own closet.

I’m not going to lie, I love that hunter gatherer feeling of buying something new, the thrill of the chase and all that. But you know what? You can also get the same feeling by refreshing something you already own. So I’ve put together a whole list of my favourite projects that you need to try, your sad old clothes will thank you when they get to see the light again!

Add Lacing To Flats

A seriously easy way to update your shoes… I love this project because there are very little steps involved and the look of your shoes is completely transformed. You’ll need to schedule in time to do this DIY asap.

Turn a Jacket Into A Skirt

The utility look is going strong right now, and you can easily make a skirt out of an old jacket to make that trend yourself.

Cut The Shoulders off a Men’s Shirt

An oldie but a goodie, right? This is one of the most popular projects on my site, and with good reason. There’s a huge chance you have an old shirt somewhere that’s begging for a transformation.

Add Tassels to A Skirt

In this project we make this skirt from scratch, but you need not do that if you have something worth transforming in your closet. Simply track down some tassel ribbon and attach it to the hem. A simple summer staple!

Turn a long sleeve top into a wrap top

The most popular project of all time on my site was a tank turned into a top, and last year (after that particularly post reached one million viewers) I decided to do an update version. This pink long sleeve wrap top was the result!

Add Nautical Buttons to A Skirt

The last one is so so so easy! Simply add some buttons to a skirt you already own. Add them down the front in sets of two for that perfect nautical feel.
