7 Style Hacks to Transform Your Wardrobe

By Jessica Pruitt

I’m gonna be honest. I’m not much of a seamstress. So whenever a cherished piece of clothing needs a fix, big or small, it generally goes in a pile for that magical day when I decide to bust out the sewing machine and get crafty. Key word being magical. When that day doesn’t come for years and years, it’s usually time to admit that I need to give those pieces the boot. But no more! With these handy style hacks, you can easily give your pants the perfect fit or make a beloved wardrobe staple feel fresh again.

@buffaloexchangeThat perfect fit. ##stylehacks

How to Cinch Up Too-Loose Pants
Favorite pair of pants just a little on the loose side? With a shoelace or ribbon, you can easily give them the perfect fit. Just lace through a couple of belt loops and tie up!

@buffaloexchangeJeans to joggers in 20 seconds! ##stylehacks

Turn Your Jeans Into Joggers
If you’re tired of your wide-leg jeans, give ’em a fresh spin by temporarily transforming into joggers with just a couple of hair ties!

@buffaloexchangeUp your oversized button-up game. ##stylehacks

How to Tuck In an Oversized Button-Up
Button-up billowing out? Give it the perfect fit by unbuttoning the bottom and tucking each piece into the opposite side of your jeans. Voila!

@buffaloexchangeTee to crop-top in no time flat. ##stylehacks

How to Turn Your Tee Into a Crop Top
I don’t know about you, but I’ve regretted cropping many a tee. In some cases, though, the outfit just calls for a crop top! Transform any tee temporarily by tucking the bottom edge into your bra.

@buffaloexchangeBodycon dresses are so versatile! ##stylehacks

How to Transform a Dress Into a Skirt
Pretty much any body-con dress can be turned into a skirt for a fresh look – simply tuck the top in!

@buffaloexchangeRaise your hand if you love a good fanny pack. ##stylehacks

Turn Your Cross-Body Bag Into a Fanny Pack
Several years later and fanny packs are still as popular as ever! If you’re not quite sure and want to give it a try, turn any cross-body bag into a fanny pack with a single hair tie.

@buffaloexchangePerfectly tucked tee that’ll stay for hours. ##stylehacks

Dot Your Is and Tuck In Your Tees
Trouble getting your tucked-in tee to stay? Just tie up each side with a hair tie and tuck it in – guaranteed to stay in place for hours.

Well there you have it – my top 7 style hacks! Whenever I’m cleaning out my closet, I like to try hacks like these before I decide to sell an item. If I still don’t love it, I throw it in the bag and make an appointment to sell at my local Buffalo Exchange! Nothing beats trading in my cleanout for a little retail therapy.
