Our Earth is dying. Literally. And it’s scary how we are gaining the first-hand experience of it. But we can always take baby-steps to ensure we don’t lose what we still have left of this earth.
Instead of throwing away your clothes because they’re out of vogue, we can take the pain of recycling and reusing them. Why throw away that once-white shirt when you can flaunt it as your something retro?
Here are some fashion tips which will not only save your wallet but also the planet:
Do you have white t-shirts lying around in your house but you have no idea how to style them and so was thinking about throwing them away?
White shirts can be worn in a thousand different ways – as a standalone item of clothing over a pair of bottom wear or layered under a leather jacket, you can tuck it in or you can keep it hanging, you can pair it with dark blue jeans or white-washed. The fun thing is you can wear it with a formal pair of pants as well. Here are some images you can refer to:
Scarves can be considered very feminine but that’s an old-school notion. They can be very handy in the cold weather. And while all your friends are coughing their lungs out, you are warm and snuggle in your scarves. But, how do you style it?
Scarves aren’t only for women. A hundred years ago when open cockpits were the trend, pilots wore silk scarves to keep themselves warm and to prevent chafing. It has been used to distinguish between army officers of different ranks. Don’t let anyone ever tell you that it’s unmanly of you to wear a scarf.
You can style a scarf with different knots. You can drape it or you can tie the Parisian scarf knot. P.s. you can even wear it with a white t-shirt.
We all have that one pair of jeans we love wearing every day. Literally. And if we could, we would probably wear it to our wedding and our funeral.
Sadly, that favourite pair of jeans will start smelling of all the bad things you’ve eaten. You wouldn’t be able to wear it after that. I would advise you to air it every day once you return home. Take it from the clothesline the next day and wear it again. Or, you can be like me and have two favourite jeans.
But if you’re tired of your pair of jeans, you can always modify it. Here’s how:
You can always rip your pants off at desired places to get a new pair of ripped jeans without spending thousands of bucks on it. If you want to get in touch with your artistic personality then you can always paint the pockets, tie-dye it but in bleach.
Tie-dying reminds me of a bunch of activities for you to repurpose your old clothing and give them a funky twist.
But I am not talking about just any kind of tie-dying. For this, you need to bleach instead of fabric colours. Bleach can discolour anything and it is also harmful to your skin. So, always wear a pair of gloves to be on the safe side.
The above-mentioned activities have been added assuming men like tie-dying and wearing scarves. This is the 21st century, don’t let stereotypes stop you from enjoying crafts.
