We are now fully aware of the festive season with so many concerts, meetings and end of year parties. With all these events lurking around and even happening, what is ringing at the back of your mind is how much your budget for December is and how your expenses are over exceeding that budget.
December is always known for expenses, no matter how much you try to spend within your budget, there’s always a last minute expense you didn’t budget for but have to be involved in. From buying gifts for friends and family, paying for tickets, transportation, paying of bills from hangouts (it’s the holidays, the best time for you to catch up with friends), fitting shopping expenses into that budget can be almost impossible especially if you have the mind to enjoy yourself this period and have made plans with friends.
There is bad and good news. Bad news being that if you spend too much you are definitely going to be broke come January and it’s not a pleasant way to start the new year at all but the good news is that you don’t have to spend so much on new clothes when you can revamp your old outing dresses and still look good to your planned outings. Here are ways to revamp your old dresses.
Layer it right
No matter how we want to style and recycle our pieces, layering can’t be left out. Layering can go with anything or any event. A turtleneck or lycra top with a slip dress or a fishnet sock on a short dress or a pin-up/ swimsuit with a metallic miniskirt, or an elaborate ruffled top with a sleeveless lengthy gown. You can also pair your socks or leggings under your dinner gown. To change the look or give it an edge.
A Touch Of Gold or leather
Gold has a way of adding finesse to your outfit. Going for gold accessories (belt, shoes, clutch or the likes) and jewelries (necklaces, bangles and rings) is a good option as it not only changes your outfit fits and look but also gives you the wearer an elegant aura or better yet you can alter the look of that old dress by adding gold or any other embroidery to it. Embroideries are well fitting for occassions, a perfect match for festive seasons.
Get a head gear
Get a hat, a beret, bucket hats or fascinator and borrow a leaflet from Ladyvhodka and Tostos fashion scheme. Nothing looks effortlessly chic like a lady on fascinator.
Add Length to the dress
It is time to pay your designer a well deserved visit in order to revive that dress or change the outlook. You can add lace or a different fabric to the hem of your dress to increase the length or add to the designer. Whether it’s updating a sleeve detail, shaving off a couple of inches from the hem too. These simple fixes are economical as well as Eco-friendly.
Lastly, you can always repeat your clothes as much as you can, it shows proof of ownership. Wear it with class and confidence , with the right accessories and hairstyle.
