Oh snap! Have you heard the new shocking Bureau of Economic Analysis statistic showing that the average woman spends $3,400 a year on clothing? While we're all for the occasional shopping splurge, this shocking stat is just what we need to get us in the mindset to re-use and recycle some of our less-worn closet pieces. Whether you have a box of old jeans hiding in the back of your wardrobe or are simply looking for a refreshing new way to wear a last-season purchase, check out these five hacks to make what's old new again!
1. Denim Do Over
Have your favorite flared jeans gone out of style? Grab a pair of scissors and turn those jeans into cut-offs! Whether you opt for a short Daisy Duke-style or prefer a longer cut and fold them over, it's a cinch to snip your denim. Pose via @allysoninwonderland.
2. Cute and Cropped
Summer is the perfect season to show a little midriff! Transform a baggy, oversized tee into a stylish crop-top like @halliedaily.
3. No sleeves, please!
Repurpose a classic denim jacket for warmer weather by taking off your sleeves like @dashofdarling.
4. Maxi Madness
Maximize your dress game with a mid-length dress. Hitting right below the knees, a midi dress is just a small snip away from last season's maxi. Pose via @bureauofchic.
5. Tie-Dye For
Nothing says summer quite like tie-dye! Have an old purse, shirt or pair of shorts looking for a colorful refresh? A little tie-dye goes a long way. Pose via @hautepinkpretty.
