Custom Print Tees

While some fashions come and go, personalized fashions are forever. Screen-print transfers can transform an affordable plain t-shirt into a fashion statement. Moreover, there are also other printing options available.

Adding a few custom print tees to your wardrobe is an excellent way to upgrade while maintaining your signature style. 

Every Tee Can Be A Baby Tee

The past year has seen baby tees, cropped tanks, and other little top designs everywhere. There’s no doubt that tiny tees are trending. What’s more, you won’t need to head to the mall if you have a few old tee-shirts and tops lying around. 

Chop the tee to a suitable measurement to match the style. With this, you can sew a hem or opt for a casual rocker look by leaving it raw. 

Skirts Into Dresses

A simple styling hack that transforms a skirt into either a top or a dress is another trick to upgrade your look without spending a cent. Simply lift your skirt upwards and try on a waist belt to complete your new outfit. 

Dazzling Shoes

If you have a pair of old tatty heels or any other type of worn-out shoe, you can upstyle these with fabric glue and stick on stones. Alternatively, you can also paint them with fabric paint. You could even find white boots on sale and decorate them for your next night out.

The Cropped Hoodie

With crop tops coming back into style, cropped hoodies are an altogether new style that’s quickly taking over. Cropped hoodies can also be quite pricey. So, you can save a bit by chopping an old hoody you have in your closet. 

Bleach Designs

For those who are pretty creative, you can paint your designs onto fabrics using bleach and a paintbrush. You can also use water to dilute the bleach for gradient shading in your designs.

Tie-Dye Creations

Tie-Dye clothing is also making quite a comeback in recent years. Fortunately, it’s relatively straightforward and pretty fun to create your tie-dye clothing. 

You will need a selection of dye pigments, application bottles, elastics, and your garments. You can visit some website and Pinterest pages to get some ideas. The trick is to roll and then wrap the garment before securing it with elastics. 

There are so many fun and creative ways to alter your wardrobe to suit the current trends. Moreover, you might find that investing in a domestic sewing machine is worth it if you enjoy modifying your wardrobe. A sewing machine is an excellent investment that will save you a fortune in the long run.
