Have a nice midi dress that fits well, but you’ve worn too many times? Add a frilly, chiffon or pleated maxi skirt underneath to give it a new lease of life. It makes the outfit more girly and instantly more dressy. You can also add a jacket if you like!
2. A kurti with a skirt

All those old sarees lying in your wardrobe or in your mother’s - those beautiful chiffon and silk sarees that hardly ever see the light of the day... Get them out and cut ‘em, sew ‘em and get yourself a nice, fancy cape style dress or even a lehenga choli out of it.
5. Saree with jeans

Give those faded jeans a nice twist and pair them with your saree. Yes, we’re talking about those old jeans that you no longer wear, because well… they’re not in vogue but sarees surely are. So oomph up your saree game by ditching the regular way to wear one and give this draping style a chance. Wear it with an ethnic blouse or even an off shoulder crop top.
6. Old tank tops with palazzos

We all have a couple tank tops lying around in our closet. Well, try wearing it with a pair of palazzos. They’re loose, loungy and look really cool when you pair them when your racerback tank tops. It’s a great way to balance the two together. And if you’re not all that confident of wearing the tank top by itself, just add a colourful stole to it.
7. Anarkali as a dress
Rewear that anarkali in a completely western way. Wear it as a dress and make the anarkali look hot, actually! You can put your hair in a messy bun, mix up a few accessories and wear high heels to look haute!
8. DIY distressed denims
Distressed denims are perfect for nailing casual chic and you can totally get yourself a pair without spending an extra penny. Just use your old, faded pair of jeans that you got bored of wearing to create a brand new look! Scrape it with a pair of scissors and use it to make a few cuts! Cut out the places you want to show some skin and roll!
9. Denim jackets with dresses
Most of us have that one denim jacket lying in our closet that we bought sometime or the other. But that doesn’t mean you can only wear it over jeans and a tee! Wear your denim jacket with all your summer dresses, skirts and more. It will add a nice character to your outfit!
10. Blazers with bralettes

Bralettes are meant to be shown off! But if you’re apprehensive about going too bare and bold, just use your old blazer or an oversized jacket to try this trend! It will make you look hot and fabulous, without revealing too much!
Hola, ladies! Style, re-style and rewear!
