It’s not a big deal to get a coat every fall. It’s a big deal if you wear your last year’s one in a totally different way 😉 Today we’ll talk about refreshing clothes and making them alive again, without having to spend a penny. Read on! 😉
START WEARING JEWELRY ON YOUR COAT
Who said that jewelry should be worn under the coat? Well, I didn’t! 😀 When it’s not cold as hell, and you don’t need gloves – fold your sleeves up and go for bracelets instead. It looks great if you’re figure type O, Y, H, as it draws attention to your wrists – one of the slimmest parts of your whole body. You can always wear a jewel necklace instead of a scarf! That’s a good option for girls whose body type is an A or an F. It’ll even the proportions of an A, and make an F look a bit taller. There’s one condition, though: jewelry needs to be huge, or even very big! Minor one will simply disappear under the thick fabric of the coat.
GO FOR A SEQUIN BELT
If you have a classic trench with a belt, don’t think even a while longer! Change the belt for a sequin or a patent one. Let it shine, make yourself spottable from afar! Try to make it as thick as the original one. If you’re scared of this kind of radical solutions – no problem! Take a colorful matt belt (a red one, a violet one, a yellow one) and wear a scarf of the same color. Team a red one with a red and black plaid coat, a violet one with colorful floral one, a yellow one with a grey-yellow polka dots one, and so on 😉
CHANGE YOUR SWEATER INTO A SCARF
If you’re bored with the pink sweater you kept wearing last winter, turn it into a scarf! Lay it on the table and roll it so that it looks like a scarf. Wrap it around your neck. You can pin a big brooch or a decorative pin onto it so that it stays where it’s supposed to be. Isn’t it amazing? 😉
FOLD UP YOUR SLEEVES AND WEAR LONG GLOVES
Wear a coat and fold your sleeves up. Just like you sometimes do with your shirt. It’ll make your coat look casual in a blink of an eye. Your look will get a French chic vibe and your wrists will make your body look slimmer. You can go for bracelets or wear big rings on your fingers. Don’t forget to get your nails done, go for gel polish – I wrote about it here. When it gets cooler, go for long colorful gloves – leather or woolen ones, whichever you like better!
WEAR A SCRF UNDER YOUR HAT
You can know this style of wearing a headscarf from Bruno Mars’s Uptown Funk music video (I wrote about his other looks here). You can get inspired and… transfer this trend into your everyday life. Do it in a more girly edition, though. Wear a headscarf and tie its endings at the back of your head and then wear a hat on top. When it’s cold or windy – cover your ears. If you want to look superglamour – go for a silk or a glittery scarf 😉
GO FOR A TURBAN
A turban can change every look into a piece of art. Read my article or watch my video in which I showed you how I tie it on my head. Don’t be scared – do exactly the same 😉 Pick the perfect headscarf to match your coat (a woolen one isn’t a great option here ;)). A multicolorful one will look great with plain coats. You can always go crazy and team a colorful coat with a colorful headscarf (check out my tutorial here).
DO WEŁNIANEJ CZAPKI PRZYPNIJ KOLOROWE KWIATY ALBO BŁYSZCZĄCĄ BROSZKĘ
You surely have at least one old woolen cap that is a bit worn out, but is totally you and you’d love to wear it this season as well. Find a nice brooch and just pin it on the cap. It can be a big one, a small one, it depends on the circumstances. How about some flowers that you keep storing after a Hawaiian party? Go on, use them – that’s how new trends are created! 😉
GO FOR SOME PEARLS
There’s another way of livening up an old cap – use the beads form a necklace you’re not wearing anymore! Faux pearls will do great. Just place them around the cap, it doesn’t have to be even. You can also use many kinds of beads: small, big, colorful, matt, shiny, it all depends on your will and needs.
