Create 2018 Trendiest Looks With Wardrobe Items You Already Have

The beginning of the year, just as any fresh start, inspire fashionistas to create brights and chic looks following all the newest trends, however that doesn’t mean loads of money need to be spent on shopping again. Instead, fashion-conscious people are pulling from the clothes they already have and revamping their looks with a few strategic styling hacks. These hacks are quite simple: things like changing up the way you drape a jacket, layering a dress, or the shoes you style with a certain outfit, but all these things can help to embrace totally new trends.

Add a scarf to your outfit
Perking up your outfit is as easy as adding a scarf or bandanna to your look. Tie it around your neck, loop it around the strap of your bag, or wear as a belt — however you like it, work it.


Style your jacket off the shoulder
Layer up the fashion girl way with a jacket styled nonchalantly off the shoulders. Just the simple drape can make anything you wear — even a puffer! — feel infinitely more stylish.


Wear denim on denim 
When it comes to fashion, sometimes the rules are meant to be broken. Once seen as a fashion faux pas, thanks to Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake at the 2001 American Music Awards, denim on denim is now one of the coolest trends out there.


Revamp a vintage T-shirt
Slip on a vintage tee or sweatshirt and give it new life with a pencil skirt, cool trousers, and your favorite pair of heels (or flats!).


Do the half-tuck
This one's easy — just tuck your shirt in the front or the side, but leave the rest undone to channel fashion girl vibes.


Mix prints
Florals and leopard print? Absolutely! Take your favorite prints and mix and match them to create an outfit that pops.


Use statement socks in your look
Don't underestimate how cool a pair of socks can look peeking out from your sneakers, brogues, and even heels. Let them be the star of your look today.


Wear a dress over pants
This one's become a fashion crowd favorite — just add a dress right over jeans or trousers — et voilà! Your dress has a whole new life.


Wear track pants in a chic way
Take your track pants out of the gym and into, well, wherever the day takes you. Add a cozy sweater and flats for brunch or style them with heels and a jacket for a night out.
