Buying clothes for the new season may feel great. But if your chest of draws  are full, you just about manage to close the doors on your wardrobe  and to top it all you only wear a tiny fraction of the clothes inside? You may want to take immediate action! No, I’m not talking about throwing out your old knitwear, but use a few tricks of the trade to create a new look and ‘lift them up’. So before you head to the shops and spend hard earned cash on this year’s trend, keep reading to re-fashion your old garments into something fabulous.

Make it bright

It’s getting dark out there, but your wardrobe doesn’t have to be. Like me, if you are a fan of vintage and bright colours, why not try dip-dying your old sweater. It will give it a funkier vibe while keeping a mixture of old and new style. You can use dying products such as Rye to create a very cool effect on your old garment.

Tie the knot

It’s crazy how lack of choice can suddenly make you creative.  This old jumper was sitting at the back of my wardrobe for some time. I had just washed my jumpers, but they had yet to fully dry. I wanted to go out for drinks but it was absolutely freezing outside. There was no way for me to compromise on comfort or style. So in a few minutes, my old shapeless sweater was turned into something more stylish with a simple knot!  Not bad, right?

Accessorise wisely

This jumper can look completely dull if worn with simple pair of jeans and trainers . By adding a necklace and a pair of heels you get an instantly stylish and elegant look. So before chunking your old sweater away, try accessoring with a cool necklace!

How do you like to wear your sweater? I’d love to know your thoughts!
