Ami Patel: Get creative
Our expert gives tips on how you can get creative with your wardrobe instead of discarding clothes you’ve outgrown
I’ve lost a lot of weight during the pandemic, but I don’t want to discard my old clothes. How can I repurpose them to make them fit without a trip to the tailor?

Sizing down is always fun! Invest in a lot of belts of various kinds, width and colours to instantly elevate your look. Browse online for DIYs. For example, cut open the seams of your loose top and knot them to fit you nicely. Or knot your oversized tees near your waist or tighten them with a rubber band at the back and throw on a jacket to hide the bulge! An interesting technique is to insert a coin in a fold and fasten it with a rubber band in the front or on the sides of the garment.
