5 DIY Tips to Spice Up Your Wardrobe

5 DIY Tips to Spice Up Your Wardrobe
Carly Jacobs

* Sew new buttons onto an old cardigan and add some ribbon or braid to give a tired staple some life again.

* Shorten a daggy pair of trousers into some funky capris or shorts.

* Glue pins or hair clips to some gorgeous fake flowers and add them to your outfit. It’s easy and it will give your outfit the biggest lift.

* Add a bow. To your hair, your waist or shoes. Even tie one around your wrist. Raid your local sewing store and go nuts. Money spent on ribbons is never wasted. Trust me.

* Use an earring as a brooch. Just thread it through the pin of an existing brooch and pin it to your top as normal. This way you have an extra gorgeous dangly bit to add a bit of interest to an otherwise dull accessory.

    Thanks E! I always the ‘what’s in’ lists so scary! My tip is scroll through street style sites and note the stuff you love. It’s easier when you can see the clothes in context. Thanks for commenting and welcome to Smaggle!
