Reuse, Restyle, Revamp
Imaginative wardrobe makeovers that won’t cost you a dime
Hike up Your Skirt
OK, not like that. Hike up a long skirt to the chest, and voilà, you have a nifty tube dress. If you feel like you’re drowning in your new gown, try adding a belt at your natural waist.
Scarf it Down
Take advantage of a pashmina’s versatility. Stylist Alexandra Suzanne Greenawalt said there are literally hundreds of ways to tie scarves. “I like to wear my scarves as belts, but they can be a top, skirt, head wrap, headband, and more.”

A few more pics of different styling options for all your fab scarves! We love to turn scarves into a belt or a head wrap.
No More Plain White Tees
Vanessa likes pairing her classic, solid-colored tops with huge or long necklaces, and the more the merrier! That boring tee just became embellished. Booyah!
Mix and Match
Who says that dress has to be a dress? For example, by wearing a flowy skirt on top of short dress, suddenly, you’re wearing a two-piece outfit: dress as a top, flowy skirt as bottom, and sexy you underneath! It’s perfect for cooler temps!
Redefine what the “front” of your outfit is. “Take your cropped, slim-fitting cardigan, button it up completely, turn it around, and wear it as a top,” advised personal fashion consultant Vanessa Valiente
