3 Ways to Create Your Own Fashion Trends


Fashion is important. It's more important than you think. If adopted as a lifestyle, it has the power to transform your life.

Yes, fashion can change your life in a positive way.  

But ...

What if you're not up-to-date on the latest trends?

What if you can't afford to always buy the latest clothes?

What if you don't have the time to subscribe to fashion blogs and read fashion magazines?

None of this matters. We're not talking about following trends. We're talking about setting them.

How to Make a Fashion Statement On A Shoestring Budget

There are three ways to become your own designer on a shoestring budget:


First, make your own custom jewelry.

Second, learn how to sew your own clothes.

Third, master the art of repurposing your old clothes.

Let's take a look at these three secrets to spiff up your wardrobe:

1. How to make your own custom jewelry.

You can design your own custom jewelry by buying wholesale chains, beads, and pearls.


GemPacked, an online store, can help you source all the right materials you need to come up with your own designs.

If you don't even know how to start, then look up videos online, or even consider taking a class to learn the basics. But you don't have to stop there. Besides making your own accessories, you can start making accessories for other people. Think of the money you could earn by starting a side-hustle for some quick cash with your new skills!

2. Why you should learn how to sew.
When you know how to sew, you have a powerful skill to express your creativity. You'll begin to see clothes in a different way -- as fabric that you can fashion in any shape or design you fancy.
You are now no longer at the mercy of retailers who tell you what you should wear. And you no longer have to figure out what size you should try to squeeze into. Once you know how to sew, you can customize everything you wear.

The best way to learn how to sew is to take a class where you can practice everything you're learning. If you can't find any classes in your city, then take online courses, shop at craft stores, and study pattern making. Either way, you will get good at sewing through experimentation.  In short, you will learn through trial and error.

3. What to do with your old clothes.
When it comes to clothes, you may have more options than you realize. Rather than buying what's in season or what's trending in fashion, you can re-purpose and redesign clothing that you already own. You can, for instance, turn winter wear into summer wear and summer wear into winter wear. Based on what you learned from your sewing class, you can redesign your existing wardrobe. Not only will people think that you're wearing something new but you're also helping the world with its problem regarding sustainability. Reusing, recycling, and DIY culture have become more relevant than ever and Kigurumi.co, a company dedicated to and obsessed with onesies, started a similar trend by turning outgrown clothes like pajamas into unique and fun designs for children.

This little-known fashion genre has no definitive name. You may hear it referred to as "refashioned fashion" or as "fashion purpose."  You may also hear it referred to as "redesign fashion" or as "restructured design." This is actually not a new idea. Before the era of mass clothing production, tailors repurposing old clothes as a matter of course. The reason it appears new is that it's rediscovered.

There are three big reasons why you may want to fall in love with fashion, elegance, and style.
First, fashion is about making a statement. When you dress well, you're speaking a universal language. It's one that's understood by successful and sophisticated people all over the world.

Second, fashion is not about clothes--that's the medium--fashion is about creating a living art form. Art is about making something beautiful. Wearing elegant, well-designed clothes add grace and charm to the world.

Finally, fashion is a powerful way to impress yourself and others. When you dress up well, your self-confidence will soar. This, of course, will also have a huge impact on everyone around you.
