Stolen From The Street: The styling tricks which will sassify your well worn winter wardrobe...
Broke? On a budget? Or just tight? There is more than one way to (re)skin your style without even spending a dime - rejoice! From that GAP hoodie you have owned since 1990 (practically) to that last season coat you spent bare money on, here's how to re-fashion your favourites…
1. Give Your Attire An ASBO
We all have that grey marl hoodie (possibly GAP, possibly Ellesse) that we wear as loungewear on a hungover Sunday. Bring that slobby Sunday feeling to your style all week long by using it as your go-to layering piece. Rebel against the roll neck by teaming with a dress or use it to relax your tailored separates.
2. Tighten It Up
Fishnets are the clothing cornerstone for Coronation Street barmaids and any sassy sister in the city. Wear under trousers for that ‘subtle slutty look’ or turn those laddered tights into a ‘thing’ with knee high boots and a mini.
3. Shape Shift
Shoulder-robing is very 2015, so shift your look into a new shape by refastening your coat. Slip one shoulder or skip a button to create a new hemline. The vibe to channel? Drunk dishevelled dressing.
4. Winterfy Summer Staples
Refresh your florals by layering over a pair of jeans and an oversized coat. Easy. Peasy.
5. Get Crafty
Hacking off the hems of your downtrodden denim jeans is hardly ground breaking BUT why stop there? Take last season’s trophy coat and fray all of its seams for a great haute hobo look.
6. Get Waisted
Double dose on your coats and give some indication of your silhouette by adding a waist belt. Playing with proportions-Michelin man style will really re-fashion one’s figure and allow for a cheeky McDonalds consumption. We will take a Chicken Legend meal to go. Large.
7. Earn A Badge Of Honour
Get all Blue Peter on your attire’s ass by patching up your tatty clothes with badges. How fun. How creative.
8. Take A Bow
For those who have had a sartorial splurge, and now can't afford even a humble accessory, should recycle their designer ribbons. Either CC certify your barnet with a little bit of Chanel or add a new dimension with Dior.
