5 Eco-Chic Ways to Clean Up Your Closet

January 28, 2015

 

We love cleaning up our closets especially this time of the year. Finding was to be eco-chic about it is even better. One of the reasons I use to hate cleaning out, was because I didn't want to just throw away everything. I developed a few simple ways to easily feel good about the items you no longer need. 

 

1.  Restore & Revamp 

  • Tailor your clothes, all the skirts pants and tops that don’t fit quit right might just need a little fixing, and this is way less expensive than buying a whole new wardrobe. Remember you can also completely change the look of a garment make a pair of boot cut jeans into skinny jeans, crop a jacket, and turn a long sleeve into a short or sleeveless top.

  • Bring scuffed, stretched, and broken heeled shoes to shoe repair, they can make most pairs look like new, even add a new sole for only few pretty pennies

  • Totally DIY with your T’s adding embellishments, pretty stitching, if you are not to crafty try online for instructions.

2.      Make the Switch

  • Have a friendly swap party with your friends, your friends always have something you like that doesn’t work for them.  There are online sites too to trade clothes.

 

3.      Easy Sell

  • Why not make a few extra dollars out for the deal, ebay and Poshmark app are both fabulous for selling your old lightly worn clothing, shoes, jewelry, and handbags.  Look out for consignment shops in your area, always looking for a bargain item. 

 

4.      Make a contribution

  • Good deeds always feel good, there are tons of place to donate old clothing to like Fashion Project, Dress for Success and Soles for Soles. Homeless shelters are also a good place to start since they can always use donations.  If not try Freecycle.com.

5.      Reinvent the Same Old

  • Turn old t-shirts into dust clothes, old necklace chains can be turned into bracelets, and buttons from tops can add interest to tops with none. Even wire hangers can be brought to a local dry cleans for recycling
