A fashionista’s biggest fear is the inability to do some shopping when we are in dyer need to spice up our wardrobe. If you suffer from this horrible occurrence, check out the following tips on ways to expand your wardrobe without spending a dime.
Take pictures of your outfits
Whenever you’ve put together a great outfit, take a picture and save it. This is a good reference for days you can’t figure out what to wear. You can look back on those outfits and wear them again. Whenever I do this, I always find cute outfits I forgot I put together and re-wear them (there’s nothing wrong with being an outfit repeater!).
Hang up your clothes
Try to hang up as many clothes as possible. When you do this, you’re allowing yourself to see everything your wardrobe has to offer. I used to only hang up my favorite items, but when I did this, I was eliminating the majority of my clothes so I’d be wearing the same stuff most of the time (creating the “I have nothing to wear” problem). If you hang up items you haven’t worn in a long time, you’re more likely to wear them.
DIY projects are a great way to spice up some of your old, useless clothes. By turning them into new, trendy pieces, you’re giving yourself a couple of new items to add to your wardrobe at no extra cost!
Sometimes all we need is a little inspiration. When you feel like you have nothing to wear, take a scroll through Instagram and re-create some of your favorite looks with items that are already in your closet; most bloggers have a really simple style, so their looks are easy to re-create.
Iron your clothes
Ok, this one sounds weird, but hear me out. Iron as many pieces as you can, so when you’re looking for clothes to throw on before your 8am, you don’t limit your options. If half of your clothes are wrinkled and stuffed in your drawers, that’s a good amount of items that you can’t wear, since you don’t have the time or the patience to iron right before you head out. This has saved me, especially for lazy days when I want to just throw on a t-shirt; before, they’d be wrinkled and I’d be too lazy to iron them, but now, since they’re already ironed, I can easily throw it on and be on my way. (**P.S. taking the time to iron all your clothes is a great method of procrastination**)
