Whether you’re a fan of bright pastel colors or darker, earthier tones, your fashion choices say a lot about who you are. Patterns, styles, materials, colors, and many other aspects come together to form your wardrobe and personal brand.
However, many people like to go one step further and alter and edit the clothes they buy to make them feel unique. Here are some ways to customize your clothes to match your style.
Attach Patches, Zippers, and Other Accessories
Little accessories are a great way to make your clothes stand out. Sewing on patches or connecting them with safety pins allows you to bring a design or something you love onto any garment’s sleeve. Some of the other common accessory options are sewing on new bows, ribbons, or zippers. It’s your clothing, so you can experiment with it and add whatever you’d like.
Try Using HTV
HTV (heat transfer vinyl) is a great way to customize shirts, pants, jackets, or other garments. Some people may want to keep it simple and use a monogram or custom logo, while others may incorporate larger designs or full photographs. One of the advantages of heat transfer vinyl is it’s easy to remove if you change your mind about a specific design. Therefore, you can try something different down the road.
Experiment With Bedazzling
Bedazzling is the art of decorating or personalizing something with sequins, glitter, or other eye-catching options. Bedazzling is also a great way to customize your clothes to match your style and express your creative side. For example, you can spell out your initials with rhinestones or have fun creating your own decorations with glitter paints.
A big part of discovering your own style is experimenting with different ideas to find what works best for you. Every alteration is a fun and exciting opportunity to see how something looks on you and to help you determine if it’s your unique brand or style.
