Refresh your Skirt

The trends in designer clothing fashion change at such a quick pace. And of course it would cost you a fortune to buy new skirts very single time that a fad changed. There is nothing to worry about this because you can do it on your own. Here's a few tips on updating your skirts quickly and easily.

Don’t cut any length off of full length skirts. Full length skirts are a staple of your wardrobe which you can update with just a few simple stitches.

Fringe is one of the key to update your skirts so go out to your local fabric shop and get yourself a few yards of a solid color fringe. With a long, denim or black tapered skirt, simply attach a single row of solid colored fringe to the bottom of your skirt. If you have side pockets on your skirt, you can also attach a row of fringe on the outside of the pocket’s top. This is also a great idea for other length skirts as well.

Here's another option if you can’t use a needle and thread, try ironing the fringe on with a little help from some hemming tape. Hemming tape works wonders and is usually machine washable, so you know it will hold up well. This iron on tape adhesive is easily removable, so if you decide to take the fringe off in six months, it won’t even be an issue.

Buttons are another great quick update for your skirts. A single column running down one side of your skirt at its seam can dress it up immensely. Use your imagination and you will definitely be surprised by the outcome.

Fabric paint is one of the easiest paints that you can work with as they are now available in pen form. You don’t have to be an artist to paint a single line of pink glitter down each seam, pockets and belt loops. Paint as much or as little as you wish, it’s up to you.

There are so many trends out there designed by fashion designer like Polo Ralph Lauren, it is all up to you if you want to update your skirt, and any clothes you own or not.
