Going back to school is always exciting, but it also means one very big thing: Everyone expects you to have a new set of duds. While you may be able to buy a few cute pieces for this year, it isn't easy to replace your whole wardrobe!
Here are some tips to recycle, diguise and otherwise reinvent the styles you loved last year.
You can make a babydoll top, purse, grocery bag and even a headband out of t-shirt parts. T-shirts are like a blank slate with your favorite logo built-in and ready to be transformed.
Okay, you can still use these without looking like you just walked out of a Guns N'Roses video. Here are some of the best uses for old jeans.
Plush wrist bands like the one here on Avril Lavigne aren't just for rocking out or jogging anymore. These fashionable accessories are a part of everyday casual wear, and can sell for more than ten bucks.
Meanwhile, cuffed socks get holes in them all the time and they also have a great ability to lose their match. You can reuse your old socks and create free wristbands at the same time with this simple tutorial. No sweat.
Use those worn-out flannel shirts to create a tied wrap. You can even reuse the lines of buttons to trim the edges.
