Rework skinnies for fresh looks


December 3, 2017

Reworking your favorite closet items is a lot easier than you think and is a lot more fun than dreadful, time-consuming shopping. And, a big benefit is saving your hard earned dollar.

Don’t hit up the department store every time you have an upcoming event to attend. The more you rework your old items the better you become at it. It’s like you are your own self-made stylist. Here are a few examples of how it’s done.

Rework an old pair of leather skinnies. These became popular 4-5 years ago and you’ve probably put yours on the shelf.

You can wear them as tights with high boots and a big sweater for an instant update.

For a casual vibe, put on your leather skinnies with a hoodie. Add a tunic button up cotton shirt underneath your sweater or hoodies and skinnies for a chic layered look.

Next, grab your favorite turtleneck, favorite long-chained necklace and a pair of ankle boots to pair with your leather skinny.

A great jacket look for your skinny is a fun printed trench coat and heels.

Try pairing your leather skinny with even more leather. White booties are popular in 2018 and will pair perfectly with your leather skinny.

Another popular white shoe in 2018 is the classic Reebok tennis shoe. Add a nice cardigan and you're on trend for 2018.

That's how you rework those same old leather skinnies. Your favorite pieces should never be ruled when it comes to reworking your fashion.
