We’re all pretty much living in loungewear right now, and it’s so tempting to give into all of the ongoing online sales (and retail therapy), but a lot of us are not in the position to be blowing money during such uncertain times. So we’ve put together a list of ways to still feel fabulous and refresh your wardrobe without spending a dime on new clothes!
TAKE AN INVENTORY CHECK.
You likely have a ton of cute stuff and don’t even realize it. They say we utilize 20% of our closet 80% of the time – so start with a full look through to see what you really have. Sometimes we just get into the habit of wearing only what’s on top/visible and a quick re-org helps to reignite the pieces you may have forgotten about.
SELL YOUR CLOTHING ONLINE.
Getting rid of the stuff you don’t want, while also making money! Sell it on Poshmark, Tradesy or eBay. We love that Tradesy sends you a shipping kit (since many of us don’t have access to a printer right now). You can also put stuff in a pile for donation later. Just make sure you actually get around to it!
Sometimes an extra set of eyes can help you look at things in a WHOLE new light. FaceTime your friends and go crazy with styling ideas.
LOOK FOR INSPO ON PINTEREST/FASHION BLOGS.
Try to replicate the look with what you have. We love looking to our favorite fashion bloggers and online magazines for innovative styling ideas. Maybe a pair of high socks and a crop top will give new life to those sweats.
Pin your longer tee into a crop top, the sleeves of a t-shirt to make it a muscle tee, or cut a slit in the bottom of a top so you can tie it into a knot.
Stay on trend and elevate your basics – tie-dye or embellish your socks, hoodies, tees, sweats, etc.
SEEK OUT GIVEAWAYS.
We just did a MAJOR shopping giveaway on our feed (and have noticed a lot of them lately) – go enter!
HOST AN ONLINE SWAP PARTY.
Zoom or HouseParty your friends and show off items for trade. Or, start a shared folder with photos of pieces you want to get rid of.
