1. Revamp Your T-Shirts

T-shirts are the most basic piece of clothing that we all own and sometimes an old one can even turn into boring clothing over time. There are endless ways to bring that vibe back to your tees with DIY hacks. And one most popular trend that we have been witnessing is the tie-dye trend, which does not seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. It allows you to create stunning and colourful clothing out of your existing tees.

DIY Tie-Dye T-Shirts At Home:

To make your tie-dye t-shirt at home, you need to lay your washed and dried tee on a flat surface and twisting it by placing your hand in the middle. Take a few rubber bands to bind the t-shirt and place it on a plate. Now very carefully pour the bleach on the twisted t-shirt and then turn the t-shirt around and repeat the process. Be very careful while using bleach and afterwards rinse it in cold water.

2. Denim

Say goodbye to that boring pair of jeans and revamp it with some colourful patches to add a vibrant edge to it.

DIY Jeans Hack:

If you have a patch of floral embroidery or colourful abstract work, then all you need to do is simply sew it firmly on your jeans. But if you want to add embroidery to it, you need to bring your sewing skills to life and use a needle to sew the embroidered pattern that you want.

3.Dress It Up

We all have some or the other dress which we always wanted to use but with better styling. No better time to add your styling skills to use than now. It’s super simple to make the basics look chic in no time.

DIY Dress Slits:

If you want to add a slit to your dress, the best way to do so is to place the dress on a flat surface and then with utmost attention use scissors to place the slit at the correct place. Another way to add some bling to your boring dresses is by embedding some stones or sequins. If you have a strap dress, you can add some shiny embellishment on the strap for an extra edge.

4.Tops

Tops are a mainstay in every closet and with new trends coming in every day, we can’t be dumping the old ones, but we surely can make them more interesting by adding a touch of modernity to them.

DIY T-Shirt Hack

Are those sleeveless tops dumped at the back of your closet? Well, it’s time to get them out and add some lace to them. Cutwork lace patterns are a great way to amp up the clothing. You can even make cap sleeves with lace; they can instantly add a romantic flair to your fashion style. All you need is lace patches and a needle to sew.
