Introduction: Very few people among us possess the financial resources to purchase an entirely new wardrobe on an annual basis, so the ability to make older clothes look new again is imperative to looking good. With a few basic skills that are common to nearly everyone you can make your older clothes look new again in no time at all.

Step 1: The easiest way to make older clothes look new again is to make certain that they are cleaned and pressed before wearing them. Nothing looks worse than wrinkled or dirty clothing.

Step 2: You can make older clothes look new again by repairing any imperfections that they may have with a few minor sewing corrections.

Step 3: For older clothes that are faded from wear or washing, you can make them look new again by dying them to replace lost color from the fabric.

Step 4: You can make older clothes look new again with the addition of a few attractive accessories such as a belt, jewelry or even new shoes. An item added that is of an off-setting color can add a new zip to older clothes.

Step 5: After you have done all in your power to make your old clothes look new again get a second opinion from a friend or family member.

Tips: Some older clothes are beyond the scope of repair - when this is the case discard of the old clothes immediately.
