These TikTokers turn old clothing into the *trendiest* outfits
Why pay for brand-new trendy garments when you can make them yourself?! Upcycling has taken over TikTok, and the 'fits are flawless.
Upcycling is the process of bringing "new life" to old or unwanted items. With the push towards sustainable fashion in recent years and the need to get creative at home, TikTokers and YouTubers are revamping their own clothes and second-hand items purchased from consignment stores. "Thrift flips" have taken over social media showcasing drab thrifted clothing turned into modern fashion.
We've rounded up the *best* transformations on TikTok to give you some inspo for your next project. (You might not even need a sewing machine!)
TikToker @kamilarobles_ has dozens of videos showing her 325k+ followers how she transforms thrifted garments into cute crop tops and matching sets. In her most popular video, she *effortlessly* transforms two oversized men's t-shirts into the *cutest* outfits.
You can make a new top out of more than *just* a t-shirt. @Shirathrifts revamped a Hawaiian shirt into a fab summer top. She's even made tops out of skirts, sweatpants and bandanas!
If you're looking to get *really* creative, some creators are turning Nike crew socks into tube tops. Who even knew that was possible?!
If you want to get fancy, TikToker @annamolinstinct creates some of the most *incredible* dresses.
No sewing machine, no problem. Not all upcycled pieces are complicated. You can create statement pieces with a pair of scissors, elastic and a bottle of liquid stitch!
