2.Try on everything and *finally* organize your closet so you can decide if you can work that oversize designer blazer you found at an estate sale way back.
3.Make some cash off your wardrobe discards through resale sites like Material World, Poshmark, and Swap.com. Then put the profits toward new duds. Maybe even new (budget-friendly) items from the same websites!
4.Nail down some new ensembles with your old stuff by creating looks in the closet organizing system Finery.
5.Set a hard-and-fast shopping budget from the start for stuff you've decided you absolutely need with Parcel.
6.Assess and label your tights so you don't accidentally buy another pair of semi-sheer black tights when you already own three perfectly good pairs.
7.But if you decide to buy some new tights, choose some that'll make your wardrobe go-tos feel fresh and new!
8."Dry clean" your outerwear with Woolite sheets or — if it's OK with your garment's care instructions — throw it in the wash instead of selling a kidney to pay a dry-cleaning bill.
9.Add a faux-fur stole to last season's coat for a glam spin on the cheap.
10.Spray paint lackluster coat buttons (after you've removed them!) or swap said buttons for some flashier ones to give your old piece a revamp.
11.If you ~must~ invest in new coat, find a classic like this gorgeous trench that'll work for all kinds of occasions.
12.Get through colder temps with your existing outerwear by layering a fleece vest under your coat to help block wind and retain body heat.
