Re-fashion your clothes

8. Recycle your clothes

If you're a fashionista on a budget there are ways to stay on trend without the overspend.

Raiding charity shops is a great way to pick up vintage pieces and re-home other people's wardrobe rejects. You can always adapt your charity shop finds to bring them in line with your own style.

Grace Woodward, the stylist on the X Factor has teamed up with green lifestyle organization Global Cool, to encourage people turn down the heating and get cozy by wearing re-fashioned jumpers.

Grace's top tips for restyling a jumper include layering. She says; “Take a jumper, cut it so that it’s cropped and stitch in another layer under with something like chiffon. Try layering square shaped jumpers with tighter tops underneath.”

If you're interested in re-fashioning your jumpers then check out these how to videos.

We adore this heart warming jumper from River Island.
