10 Fabulous Fashion Revival
Tips - Simplicity of Recycling Old Clothes Back
In the fashion world of
reality have you never noticed how latest
trendy fashion designs what clothe boutique
shop mannequins - duplicate creations designed
decades ago. If your keen eye espied this, then
does this not tell you something? Yes that's
right, the clothes mum and granny wore in their
hey-day could have you after a few minor
alterations be the envy of all your friends. A
rummage in the closet of the grey haired or
blue rinse relative can save you time and
Revival of fashion
rejuvenates from flower power hippie bell
bottoms into flares. The bolero jacket turns
box coat, and back on the scene with vengeance
the pointed shoe once referred to as the
"winkle picker," oh and not forgetting the
square toed "chisel". I ask who is responsible
for such unappealing names. Mind you back in
the days of the Beatles the mention of winkle
picker was so desirable it was like music to
your ears. In reality chic trendy fashion items
are not changing with the times - only the
Being fashionable is not
about designer labels but the actual design of
the outfit itself. The style layout is fashion
and not the designer. Think about it, Versace
and Gucci have been around for years so nothing
fresh or new here, only what they create. The
huge demand for fake designer labels is saving
the fashion conscious a lot of money. Why pay
through the nose for something you can not see
or the person you wish to impress. Designer
tags are sewn on the inside of most garments.
Is there a reason for this? Could it be the
shame of charging extortionate prices?
Save pennies today and
salvage moms clothing donation for the local
jumble sale. Bargain buys come in a multitude
of choice from local charity shops and car boot
sales. Some folk embarrass easily over wearing
another`s cast offs (second hand) and this is
understandable. If you can swallow your pride
then a cycle wash with fabric softener will
have the garment smelling fresh and looking
like new leaving you with spare coppers in your
pocket. Remember not all items for sale in
second hand shops, are second hand.
Why not consider designing
your own clothes and create a new image for
yourself. Set your own trend/style. Fashion is
determined by your way of thinking. If you
think something is nice you wear it and vice
versa. In saying that we have those regardless
of how hideous they look in an outfit continues
to strut the walk looking like a freak.
If you follow particular
fashion behaviours then make sure they
compliment "you" and your shape. If you choose
to ignore this advice then be warned
Take heed of the fashion
reminder "What goes around comes around"
Remember moms' clothes were once chic and
fashionable so why not again. Fashion is about
attitude and if positive is in there somewhere,
better still for recreating. If the golden
oldies attire is not for you then try spice up
other garments regardless of which person it
1. Neck ties or any kind of
neck adornment like scarves, chokers, boot
laces and tastefully twisted rope can make a
huge impact on how a plain dress/blouse looks.
Dickie bows and cravats are fabulous finishing
2. Bring out the calling in
colours - let them shout. Clash colours if you
want to get noticed. Stripy shorts and polka
dot tights (green red yellow) whatever your
preference in colour will turn heads.
3. Use colourful ribbon to
make a flash impression. Get it out of your
head (excuse the pun) that ribbons are solely
for the hair.
4. Tights and socks with
funky inexpensive bits and bobs sewn on create
an affective finish.
5. Liven up old belts with
sequins, bows, studs, chains, rhinestone,
pearls or beads
Anyone can revive their
wardrobe by recycling their clothing.
1. A long skirt can be
shortened. Short skirts can have layers added
e.g. ra ra style, tassels or fringe.
2. Remove dress or blouse
sleeves to create a sleeveless one. If a dress
has pockets embroider with fancy stitching or
sew on flower motifs.
3. Not familiar with a
needle and cotton that's okay, you can purchase
fusing and permanent glue products for many
4. Feathers are fabulous and
fancy and glue easy.
5. Leave your mark on a pair
of plain slacks by running a satin strip down
the leg, waist or hem. Cheap inexpensive trims
can add oomph, sparkle and elegance and can be
obtained from craft and fabric stores.
If you can knit then take
advantage of this trait and knit a shawl or
woollies i.e. sweater or scarf and decorate
with a brooch or other type decorative pin.
It is simple to accessorize
with a brooch. The brooch can be pinned to one
side of your neckline towards a sleeve or in
the middle of your neckline highlighting the
bust. Gather the material and attach the brooch
to your bra strap. This creates a unique
neckline and offers a wide range of
possibilities for clothing items. Fashion
magazines are a fine source for ideas. The
finest craftsmen in the world who work on gems
and Jewelry are Indian`s, and look how they
present themselves at the time of a tribal war
Good fashion sense tells us
not to go over our budget and that we don't
want to wear the same outfit over and over,
hence more reason to be able to create. It is
best to find a look that best suits your
personality. Not all trendy fashion designs are
created for each individual, individually, so
therefore you must feel comfortable before you
can feel stylish.
Chic fashion designs come and go! Don't hold
back on buying classic wardrobe accessories. As
long as you have imagination they will never go
out of style.
