New year is probably the most reasonable excuse to drag yourself to go out shopping so you can revamp your look and give yourself (style-wise) a clean slate. If you’re tired of your old items, but you haven’t got the budget to get yourself new items, why not add a touch of ribbon to it?
Ribbon has been my new-found love, because it can turn my boring black jacket into something more exciting and I can add it into few more other items.
Here are some ideas on what you can do to make old things new:
Use a colourful ribbons made from grossgrain or ribbon either really thick or thin one as a sash to belt your jacket.
Change your shoe lace with ribbon. Be inventive, use clashing colours with your shoes or even bolder – go with the patterned ribbons.
Tie a bow with a silk ribbon (medium width) in your collar when wearing a shirt.
Use ribbon and insert it into your bag’s chain straps or your necklace to add colours to the metal.
If you have a chunky or charmed bracelet that you have grown tired of, tie a ribbon on both ends to create a Marni-esque necklace like shown above.
Got any other ideas that you can add? Please do share, so we can give a new life to more unused stuff on our wardrobe.
