5 Afrocentric ways to make your clothes look expensive

Getting rid of old clothes can be difficult. It is not any easier even when your wardrobe or closet is bursting at the seams and you know for a fact you cannot go through all of the clothes even if you wanted to.

Selling them to secondhand dealers is a great way to make some extra cash, or you could just give them to charity. But if you have an attachment to some of them, making it too hard to let go or they are not in good enough shape to sell or donate, then you should look into upcycling.

One great thing about upcycling is that you are free to create, and the more creative you are, the better. Upcycling clothes creatively transforms what you already own in order to reduce waste.

It saves you money and allows you to hands-on create your own unique style. Also, creating a more sustainable closet contributes towards the environmental protection goals of the United Nations.

An old sweater can be easily transformed with a little imagination. Those jeans you haven’t worn in years are just begging to be touched with some magic. That pair of shoes at the bottom of the closet needs some attention. A little creativity can turn your wardrobe around.

In upcycling, you can employ and include any and every material available to you that your imagination can use. There are many ways to go about upcycling, and here are 5 Afrocentric ways of recycling old clothes.
