How To Have Great Style Without Spending Money

Revamping your wardrobe each season shouldn’t cost as much as rent. In fact, you’d be shocked at how many cool new outfit combos you can create using what you already have tucked away in your closet. (There’s a reason you decided to keep that skirt you almost gave up years ago.) So pull that breezy sundress you just packed away back out because nothing is off limits when it comes to breathing new life into your winter style. With the right cozy pairings and bold accessories, anything can feel new and fresh again. Find out how to style last season’s staples in a new and creative way so that your fashion feels fresh without doling out any cash.

The Scarf

Not only can a silk scarf be worn in myriad ways, it's a true staple piece that remains fashionably relevant no matter what the season. Add one to a monochrome ensemble for a pop of color or find a creative way to incorporate it into an outfit you're bored of. Wear it around your neck, on your wrist as a bracelet or tied onto the handle of your favorite carryall.

The Breezy Dress

Get excited: Your favorite breezy sundress from last summer does not need to be relegated to the back of your closet. Layer a formfitting turtleneck underneath to update it for the chiller season. Pair with opaque tights and moto-style booties, and you're rocking '90s style like a pro.

The Jumpsuit

Update a sleeveless jumpsuit for wintertime by putting a tailored button-up shirt underneath. Complete this polished office-to-evening look with a structured clutch and bold lip.

The Skirt

If you haven't already, investing in a mid-length skirt is a must as the feminine silhouette having a major moment right now. If you already own a full-length skirt that you love, a simple trip to the seamstress can result in a piece that looks and feels entirely new and perfectly on trend. We love the style worn with a chunky knit and knee-high boots.
