Start with Your Jewelry

The first place to start is with your dress accessories! Look through your jewelry case, shoes, pocketbooks, scarves and belts. See how you can create fresh styles by recombining the things you already have, before shopping for new clothes. Perhaps, you never thought of wearing an old colorful belt with your darling solid color dress. Alternatively, perchance you can wear an offbeat piece of jewelry to accentuate a particular outfit to make it look trendy.

Cut Your Long Dresses

You can even alter a cocktail dress to a new look and feel, by elongating or shortening its hem.

The next intelligent thing to do to revamp your wardrobe is to take an inventory of your clothes. See if you can mend or alter any of them to create a new look. You can cut older pants at, or below the knee to create stylish culottes, and cut a long dress at the knee to create a fabulous cocktail dress. You’ll get even more wear with your revamped dresses, since you’ll have more opportunities to wear them. It's not every day you're invited to a ball, so why not let your imagination run wild!

Replace Coat and Dress Buttons

You can wonderfully make over your tops and coats, by simply replacing its buttons with brighter and softer ones. You can sew ribbon braids on your cuffs and collars, to create a brand-new look.

Make your cashmere pieces, and wool sweaters look modern by snipping the snags with a pair of nail cutters. After that, hand wash and line them dry once again. Cut your old sleeves at the elbow to create a brand-new blouse.

Dye Your Wedding Dress and Shoes

Lengthen your skirts and short dresses with an attractive piece of lace, you can stitch to elongate. Wearing colorful slips is a neat way to revamp your see-through blouses and dresses with vibrant camouflaged colors.

You can dye your wedding dress to create a whole new dress, and if you’d prefer a shorter dress, don’t be afraid of snipping it. You’ll feel honored you could still fit into your wedding dress after many years of storing it.
