Give a New Twist to Old Dresses
We’ve all been there - a wardrobe packed full of clothes, fighting for space, tumbling out every time the door is opened, and yet when we need a great outfit for an important date or an impromptu plan with our friends, we find that we have nothing to wear! Shopping for clothes has become as easy as clicking a few buttons, and we’re all guilty of utilising this comfort to the fullest. But even though our appetite for clothes is insatiable, every wardrobe and house has a physical limit that just cannot be surpassed. So we find ourselves in a fix - we would like to keep on refreshing our look, but can’t throw away the existing stock every time it’s sale season, especially when most of our favourite dresses are used only a few times.
So what’s the best way to deal with this constant inner battle between the shopaholic fashionista and the thrifty, space-constrained, environmentally-conscious persona that’s hidden somewhere in the deepest depths of our psyche?
The answer - accessorising hacks that can give a whole new look to the good old dresses!
So the next time you’re worried about being called out for wearing the same dress twice with the same set of friends, remember 3 things -
Repeating clothes is a matter of pride, not shame, because it’s good for the environment
It’s good for the wallet too
No one has to know it’s the same dress. How’s that you ask? Read on to find out.
Belts are a much-ignored accessory that can work wonders for your overall look.

Fashion lovers, read carefully - belts are here to stay!
