Whether you’ve always envied your sibling’s wardrobe or just wanted to try out a new style but not had the budget, it can sometimes feel like you have nothing to wear despite having a wardrobe full of outfits. You might be sick of wearing the same clothes over and over again, but others might love your style. Swapping clothes with a family member or friend is the perfect solution and it has endless benefits in the long term. The following are the ways you can swap your way to a new outfit.
Be Spoilt For Choice
Swapping clothes with a friend, work colleague or family member is the perfect way to increase your wardrobe choices and give you outfit choices you never would have normally had. Whether it’s a designer dress, a collection of jewellery or an enviable set of swimming shorts, swapping clothes with someone else allows you to try new styles and change up your look. You’ll be spoilt for choice as you try on a new collection of casual, work wear and accessories that your friend might well be sick of. But remember that it’s important to have some rules in place so that your can get clothes back when you need them.
De-clutter your wardrobe
If you’re constantly sharing clothes and bringing home new outfits, it’s the perfect opportunity to clean out your wardrobe and cull the items you no longer want or need. You might find a hidden gem you haven’t worn for years that you will fall in love with again or you might find something your friend will treasure instead of letting it collect dust. Clearing out your wardrobe will not only give you much more storage space, but it will give you a better idea or what clothes you already have and what things you need to add to your swapping collection.
Without doubt one of the greatest benefits of clothes swapping is the savings you will make by not purchasing clothes for every different occasion. While your sibling might be sick of wearing the same business suits, they might well give you a sophisticated new look without you having to spend a cent. It also means that any clothes you do buy will be worn many times rather than being stowed away after one or two wears.
Try Before You Buy
If you’re worried about committing to a certain look that might set you back hundreds of dollars, trying on your friend’s clothes first to see if the style really suits you is the best option. Whether it’s a more relaxed approach to dressing or a quirky work look, you’ll be able to road test clothes first before make a definite decision about the look. Clothes swapping is the perfect way to experiment with new styles and constantly change up your outfits without having to worry about the expense.
So if you’re looking to expand your wardrobe, trying to cut back on your spending or just keen to experiment with different styles, clothes swapping could be just the key to helping you open up your wardrobe to a world of possibilities.
