7 Cheap And Easy Hacks To Transform Your Existing Wardrobe
Dressing well is inarguably subjective — always has been and likely always will be. But when it comes to unwavering truths like finding the right fit, cut and style to match your personal aesthetic, those laws rarely falter. Given those principles that help navigate the path to style superiority are common knowledge to most men, what is there left to learn? Everything, basically.
There are tricks to the trade, shortcuts — or style hacks if you will — that can elevate even the best wardrobe. Allow us to make your life easier by heeding these seven style hacks that will undoubtedly work for your wardrobe as well.
Among the most impactful tools you can learn to amplify your style is getting handy with a needle and thread. Familiarize yourself with basic sewing know-how. Don’t worry, it’s a lot easier than you think. Start by making your own ties, pocket squares and scarves. You also won’t have to retire any shirts or jeans that get wounded on the field of battle. After a few trial runs, you’ll be able to breathe life back into your distressed garments.
Water, Salt, Vintage
The perfect vintage tee is just that, perfect. But a good looking tee without the right feel is pretty useless. So instead of scouring eBay for overpriced vintage tees, take the ones already in your closet and make them vintage on your own. Marinate a cotton tee in a quart of water and half cup of salt for a few days (3 days max) and machine wash with a dash of detergent, tumble dry and voila!
Freeze Those Sneaks
Got a few pairs of really great sneakers that get no love because, well, they just smell awful? No problem. Throw them in a bag and freeze them overnight. This handy trick helps lift bacteria from those stinky kicks, leaving them as fresh as they were before you decided to wear them sockless all summer long.
