Easy Ways to Boost Your Wardrobe: Inanity's Guest Post

Our guest post today is all about how to boost your wardrobe on a shoestring budget, I have to say there's some great points in here. I've used a lot of these myself, especially the power of a statement necklace. Enjoy and let me know your tips!

Fashion can be extremely damaging to our bank accounts, especially when designers are releasing new trends on an almost daily basis. However, for most fashionistas, buying into the latest ensembles is a must. Thankfully, there are a number of ways to do this on a budget.

Repurpose old favourites

First things first: prior to buying anything new, you should begin by digging through your wardrobe and rediscovering outfits you love. Finding long-forgotten dresses and creating new outfits by incorporating old favourites into newer styles is a great way to mix up your wardrobe on a shoestring. If something really is past its expiration date or you find something you’re unlikely to wear again, sell it to boost your fashion funds.

Get organised

There’s a common saying amongst many women, who often proclaim they have ‘nothing to wear’. This generally has nothing to do with an empty wardrobe and more to do with being unable to see the forest for the trees. A wardrobe brimming with t-shirts, shirts, dresses, shoes, bags, belts and skirts will make creating an outfit ensemble an enormously difficult task. Whether you opt for a colour coding system or invest in an extra wardrobe, organisation is key. Being able to see every outfit you have, without having to sift through a variety of garments, will certainly help you to create various stylish ensembles.

A different look

Instead of revamping your wardrobe, revamp yourself. The New Year is the perfect time to try out new hair styles, which are equally effective at transforming your look as upcycled fashion pieces. New hair styles are proving to be a huge hit on the red carpet this season, with a number of models and A-list celebrities sporting a shorter crop. The two shorter trends to take centre stage include a sophisticated and a punk style. Opting for a shorter hairstyle can work wonders on your wardrobe, giving both tired outfits and locks a new twist.


If you quite simply don’t have the funds to invest in a new outfit, buy a number of accessories instead. Adding a hot hued handbag, an embellished belt, a bright pair of boots or a statement necklace to an otherwise simple outfit is a great way to update your entire ensemble. Bold, brave jewellery is big for 2014 and choosing accessories in brighter shades is a great way to bring a dull outfit back to life.
