7 DIYs to Update Spring Style

Before you put those winter clothes away and splurge on your new spring wardrobe, think about doing some simple DIYs to update your style for little to no money -- the thrifty way!

I'm still putting up the good fight with my thrift store budget. I'm looking in my closet to see what I can remix and refashion. I've rediscovered quite a few pieces that I'd forgotten about and some that just need a little bit of tweaking. Below you will find a list of some of the easiest DIYs I've ever done. I hope you can take inspiration and recreate your own closet.

7 DIY Ways to Update Your Spring Style

1. If you have a beginning sewing skills, you can easily whip up a a few maxi skirts. Triple the wear by pulling the skirt up over bust and belting for a sleeveless dress. Next turn it into a one shoulder tunic by pulling one side over shoulder and belting.

2. Turn those winter whites into this season's brightest colors. Have some white tees that are looking a little dull? Dye those too!

3. Perform a little sleeve surgery and turn a long sleeve into short sleeve or go completely sleeveless!

4. Paint your shoes a different color. Color it New is on sale for $20 a kit. Grab a kit and those old sandals that you can't part with but you really don't wear a whole new look.

5. Add an iron on a transfer designed by you or buy a pre made one at a craft store. Turn a plain tee into a super cute logo tee.

6. Got culottes or ill fitting long shorts? Make a flirty skater skirt! This refashion only required the sewing of two.

7. Make a skirt. Cut the top off of a dress and sew elastic around the opening and voila! You have a skirt. If you have an elastic waist dress, you can cut just above the elastic and wear. No sewing required.

Are you turning to your closet first for your spring style?
