*Collaborative post.

Have you ever found yourself with a wardrobe bursting with LOADS of pieces and accessories, but still leaves you struggling to find what to wear everyday? Or do you think you have a boring wardrobe and need to step up your style game? If you answered Yes to any or both of the questions, then these DIY Fashion Tips may be exactly what you need.

Read this post before you go for your next shopping trip.




Denim Magic

Denim is one of the easiest materials to customise. There is so much you could do with an old pair of tired jeans. I once gave my old jeans a new life by cutting the legs off and adding some Hello Kitty studs I got online to it. I needed shorts to wear around this house, and this old pair was just sitting unworn in my wardrobe, so I used my very limited DIY Fashion skills on it.

Clothes shopping is always challenging, especially since popular styles today are not always popular tomorrow. That is why finding comfortable skirts and shorts that stand up to those changes is important. One of the best fabrics to look for is denim. Denim skirts, much like denim jeans, are quire popular. They are good to wear in all seasons and the durable fabric is long-lasting. Whether you want to visit with friends at a local tavern or present a professional appearance at work, a denim skirt can do the job. You can also express yourself well by picking different colors or washes of denim or selecting skirts with added features, such as snaps or buttons. Accessorizing differently can help you turn one denim skirt into a perfect compliment to multiple outfits.

You can also change an old pair of jeans into a denim skirt by cutting off the legs, and the inside of the legs and sewing them together.


Sneaker Special

Sneaker are also very easy to personalise and make your own. You could get many of the sneakers companies to personalise a pair for you or you could opt to do it yourself if you are brave enough.


Create by Computer

Creating a design by computer is another way to customise your clothes. There are many companies you can find online that would produce your designs for you. You could design your own shirts, hoodies, hats, joggerss and so many more.


Say it with an Oversized Bow

The oversized Bow is bang on trend now, so this is one added feature worth having on your pieces and accessories. You can update a tired looking shirt or skirt with a bow (you can purchase handmade oversized bows online), if you are into the trend. I am so into the trend, I have new flat shoes with the oversized bows. I got the pair some months ago, and I am so in love with it.




A Second Chance

Before you get rid of your next set of clothes, have a good look at them and see if you can use any buttons, zips, or trimmings to update another piece.

Its July, summer is here and that means one thing – Holidays. With the holiday season in full swing, many are jetting off to beaches and other luxurious places to relax and unwind, and with some many women walking around looking fit in their bikinis and bodysuits, the pressure is on for every woman to have the Perfect Beach Body this summer. Many are coughing out as much as £300 in preparation for the summer holidays. Can you imagine that?


An online voucher code website – My Voucher Codes recently carried a survey that revealed that 60% of 18 – 24-year-old women felt under pressure to achieve the #PerfectBeachBody. The survey was answered by over a 1000 women aged over 18, and the results were as follows:

  1. The most popular beauty preparation women have for their summer holidays is waxing including eyebrows, legs and bikini area (59%), and manicure and pedicure (54%).
  2. A tummy tuck was the most popular choice for women looking to get their body in shape for summer.
  3. Joining a gym, a diet club and a fitness class were the most popular ways to get fit and healthy for the summer.

Mark Pearson, the founder of My Voucher Codes said:

“It’s amazing how much beauty treatments can cost for holiday prep, add this to the cost of a holiday and people can end up spending a fortune before that go. And that is not taking into account, gym membership, and fad diets or class’s people take to get their beach body. What is shocking though is the surgery women would consider having to get a beach body. There is so much pressure on women to have the perfect body, I can understand why some women resort to such extremes to get it.”

Personally, I don’t quite understand this whole perfect beach body craze. I can’t imagine coughing out anything close to £300 to achieve a perfect beach body, I rather spend that money on some cool accessories and pieces. However, I am more conscious of my legs during summer because I like showing off some skin, so I wax my legs more regularly in the summer months. Walking about in a mini skirt with hairy legs won’t be a pleasant sight, but that is all I do differently in the summer. Then again, I am not your average young woman. I hardly get pressured into doing anything. I make my own rules.
