You can’t possibly wear the same outfit to more than one function. Here’s how you can give your outfit a makeover.

Saris: Got a beautiful sari you don’t want to be caught in again? Just dye the sari in another shade and work on the detailing. Laces and sequins can do the trick too. A sari pallu also makes for a pretty corset top or dress. The rest of the sari can be made into a long flowy skirt or tunic.

Mini-skirts made of traditional sari designs are also eye-catchy.
A sari also makes for unusual cushion covers and curtains. Leftovers of sari borders can be used to frame photographs.

Brooch: Pin a delicate brooch with a motif on a solid coloured T-shirt. Animal and cartoon-shaped brooches give a funky look.

Belts: Tie a belt on your midriff and a long Tee will look like a high waisted dress or top. Wear leggings beneath it and you’ve got the perfect picnic wear. If you are in the mood to experiment,wear a funky belt at the start of a tube top.

Anarkali suits: They are still a rage. But once you flaunt it at a wedding reception, chances are that it will lay ignored in your closet. Go for a reversible suit. Later, you can convert the flowy portion to a long skirt.

Little black dress: Sure, it’s a classic but classics can’t be repeated. Just add some colourful patchwork on the upper half of the dress and frills on the hemline. This way, the length of your dress will increase and no one will be able to guess that you have repeated it.
