For #NoSpendSeptember, we decided to give our closets a makeover without spending a dime, so we turned to Tiktok (our new favorite playground), for style tips and fashion hacks to see if we could find anything that could bring our same-old/same-old into a new find.
We culled all of the most popular fashion girls and picked out their best tricks for updating their looks, all by using what they already have in their wardrobe (and perhaps a rubber band or two). From fashion tips to style hacks, surely you have something in your closet that could use an upgrade and make you feel like a brand new woman.
So go ahead and give it a try. Rock a new style with your favorite tee, and get that shopping feel from the convenience of your own home without any buyer’s remorse!
3 Simple Fashion Hacks
It’s no secret; we love Karen Wazen. We love her family, her sunglasses, her dances with her kids, and we love her style. She has a lot of videos, but we like this one where she gives three simple fashion hacks for a t-shirt, oversized belt, and an oversized blazer. Pretty sure that belt and blazer must have been her husband’s at one point, but clearly she can make anything work for her. He probably won’t even get it back, that’s how great it looks on her. But the point is, if you need a break from your clothes, raid someone else’s closet and make it work for you.
