Summer is the Perfect Time to DIY Your Clothes

Most people switch out their closets from winter to summer clothes and forget about all the pieces from the past season.

However, if you take the time to go through your winter clothes, you might find some items that you really aren’t interested in anymore. Instead of throwing them away, why not DIY them and turn them into something new and exciting?


Almost any pair of pants, especially jeans, can be turned into shorts for the summer!

Just take any pants you’re not crazy about and try them on. Mark how long or short you want them to be with a little pen or marker. Cut them straight across and you have a brand new pair of shorts!

Shirt Dress

In the summer months, there’s no better time to rock the classic shirtdress look. You can easily dress it down or dress it up, and all you need is a large button down shirt, to begin with!

First, cut off the long sleeves either at the hem or further up if you want to be a skinner top. You can either leave or cut off the collar depending on your style, and then it’s done! Belt it for a more tailored look or leave it as is for a comfy, flowy dress.
