Looking good and having fun with fashion doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg – you just need to be creative with what you have.
1. Mix and match pieces that you would normally never wear together
Don’t be afraid to try new combinations – some will look amazing and some will fail epically but it’s okay. If you don’t like it then you can take it off.
2. Host a clothing exchange with friends
They say a change is as good as a holiday – and sometimes an exchange is even better! Send out official invites, grab a few rails and a good bottle of wine and have a little exchange party with your closest friends. Just make sure you set guidelines beforehand – nobody wants to exchange a Forever New coat for a pair of old shoes.
3. Break all the fashion rules
Who says you can’t wear red and pink together? Try it! You will fall in love. Forget the old fashion rules and break them all – leave your heels and throw on a pair of trainers. Try new things and experiment with your look.
4. Accessorise, accessorise, accessorise!
Accessories are your new best friend. We love wearing a ring on just about every single finger or stacking different bracelets and a statement watch to create an #ArmParty. The options are endless – just pretend you are three-years old again, playing dress-up with your mom’s stuff.
5. Borrow stuff from your boyfriend
Let’s be honest, girls – we all love wearing our man’s clothing. There is something sexy and comforting about being wrapped in his oversized shirt or draping his jacket over your shoulders. What’s the point of having a boyfriend if you can’t borrow his stuff?
