"I have a closet full of clothes and I don't have the heart to throw any of them out, " says Mia. "But I obviously can't wear any of them because they're out of style. What do I do?" Gretta's got tons of ideas for repurposing out-of-fashion clothes. Why pay a fortune to update your wardrobe when a pair of scissors, a few buttons and some tips from Gretta can give you a whole new look?
If you're thinking of updating and re-purposing some of the items in your wardrobe, here are a few suggestions from Gretta:
A new buckle can update an old belt in no time.
New buttons can make a huge difference for little money and you can do it yourself!
Take in the waist of a boxy jacket. It will make it more form-fitting and flattering.
Many couture jackets have shorter, narrower sleeves so take them in and up if you want to give old jackets a more high-fashion look.
Adding or changing trim can completely transform a piece of clothing. Be careful though, it can start to add up.
Spruce up a boring, conservative jacket with a fur collar.
Get out those scissors! Shortening hemlines, taking sleeves off a dress and cutting off lapels updates tired old clothes. Just remember, once it's gone, it's gone so cut conservatively.
