For many of us, keeping up with fashion trends and updating our closets can get pretty expensive. This is especially true for most new mothers whose extra ‘girlie-shopping’ money now has to be siphoned into the baby care budget.

But don’t fret – although money can be tight for many of us (mothers or not), looking our best does not have to break the bank account. Here is a simple 2-step process on how you revive your wardrobe and still look good without spending a cent.

1. Wardrobe Audit

Clear out your wardrobe mess – the less clutter you have in your wardrobe, the easier it would be for you to select what you want to wear for the day. By clearing your wardrobe, you will also soon find clothing items that you have not worn (or touch) for over 6, 12, 18 months (or even longer!).

Trends come and go, and quite they often move in cycles. So, it’s not surprising that might find some of your ‘old but rarely-worn’ clothing items that are back in fashion! More importantly, this process allows you to pick out those clothing items that you don’t want, don’t wear or cannot fit into anymore.

2. Organise a Wardrobe Swap Party.

Gather your friends and co-workers (and their friends) to a simple Wardrobe Swap Party on a weekend. Have a great time catching up with old friends and making new ones over a simple coffee morning or afternoon. At this swap party, you can start swapping or bartering clothes, handbags and accessories – and possibly creating a new set of fashion wear for one another.
