As any good follower of fashion will tell you, one season’s clothing and accessories simply isn’t the same as the next – if you’re aiming to keep in vogue with fashion on the street and are aiming to keep making lasting impressions throughout the year, you’re going to need to keep a close eye on what other people are wearing, and what’s in and what’s out. It can all be rather exhausting – and, moreover, expensive in the long run! Not everyone has enough disposable income to continue adding to their wardrobe day in, day out – and thankfully, the ongoing trend in vintage clothing and styles, as well as affordable living, has allowed for plenty of people to make use of their existing clothes in a manner which is both fashionable and unique.

It could be as simple as letting some old jeans up – adding a few buttons or embellishing an outfit with a ribbon, or tassel, or two – the way you look is obviously entirely your choice, and with a wealth of impressive and imaginative fashion ideas available for you online (Pinterest is a very good place to start), the sky’s the limit.
If you need to refresh your current wardrobe, why not add accessories to your plain garments? A popular trend at the minute is adding to beach bags and hats – whether it be fringing or pompoms – you can really transform your wardrobe ready for your summer holiday!
