Make Your Old Clothes Feel New

If you’ve got a closet full of clothes yet still plan to buy a bunch of new stuff, you could stand to use your wardrobe more efficiently. A few adjustments can inject new life into clothing you already own and stifle your urge to make another shopping trip.

Fabulously Broke in the City offers these suggestions, which are pretty much exclusively geared toward women:

* Turn old shirts into undershirts. By layering clothing, you can create combinations that give you new looks.

* Sew stuff onto clothes, or dye them different colors. Sew flowers and beads onto clothing to alter the style and express yourself artistically.

* Make the same clothes look different with accessories. Belts, necklaces and other add-ons can make the same boring clothes look fresher.
