This upcoming festive season instead of buying new clothes let’s recycle the wardrobe.

There are few things which everyone should have in their Wardrobe to pair it well and mix to produce “The awesome attire”.

Must Haves:

Tip 1:

Use old lehenga-choli to make Anarkali suit/gown.

Attach the lehenga with the Choli it would result in an Anarkali suit or long gown, which could be paired with any leggings or trousers.

If the length is not sufficient a lace could be added at the waist or at the bottom.

A slit till waist could also be created to wear brocade or silk trouser underneath the suit.

Tip 2:

Wear Suit with long skirt/lehenga/Palazzo with the Dupatta to make it look royal. Mix and match the combinations to create great attire.

Always keep a golden or copper brocade trouser for emergencies. It goes well with almost all suits to jazz it up.

Tip 3:

Wear long skirt or lehenga with Silk top or shirt. It’ll create a retro look for the occasion. Use contrasting colors to make it eye-catching.

Pair it with long chains and dangles/ jhumka… that’s “the look”

Tip 4:

You could sport a casual yet chic look by wearing jeans top and pairing it with brocade/ lace jacket. You could even make a jacket out of your old Saari/Dupatta.

Jackets are very versatile so they could be worn in many ways with a lot of things like over jeans, suits, Anarkali, lehenga, skirt and so many more.

They’ll glam up the looks.

Tip 5:

Attach the old dupatta/Saari under your blouse with high slit wear silk/brocade trouser or Palazzo or Skirt underneath and sport “the Fashionista look”.

That’s all for now try these looks and let me know if the tips were helpful in restoring your old things and recycling the wardrobe to create something new…

Enjoy Dressing up.
