Recycling old favorites in quirky, unexpected ways is sure to make you stand out and feel like the ultimate street style star in no time.
Read on for Savoir Flair’s nine accessories styling tips.
Arm Cuffs as Sleeve Stoppers
Bored of an old T-shirt? Roll up the sleeves and use a couple of stacked arm cuffs as sleeve stoppers. Mega edgy, mega cool.
Sneakers Laced Up at the Ankles
Your comfy old sneakers will bask in the glory of a serious style update with the laces tied around the ankle.
A Necklace in the Hair
If you want to jazz up a simple hairdo, wrap a pretty necklace around a bun multiple times for instant glam à la Jennifer Lawrence.
A Bracelet Used as a Cuff
Use tight bracelets on both wrists to weigh down looser sleeves. Your slouchy old jumpers and shirts just got a lot cooler.
A Brooch in the Hair
Forget the boring hair ties lying around your house and recycle a great brooch to hold a ponytail in place instead. Chic hairdo? Check!
Earrings Clipped onto Shoes
Grab a pair of old clip-on earrings and use them to embellish a pair of shoes you’re already bored with – and just like that, you’ve (almost) created a whole new pair.
A Midi Ring as an Ear Cuff
Midi rings make for perfect ear cuffs – just make sure you use one that’s open. Better yet, stack a few delicate numbers on top of each other for a bolder look.
A Pearl Bracelet as an Anklet
A pearl bracelet might not feel like the most on-trend accessory of the moment, but it will get a 2016 update when worn as a statement anklet instead.
A Shoe Lace as a Belt
Find a pretty shoe lace in your closet and recycle it as a belt for a nerdy-chic look.
