Shop till you drop is the concept of days gone by. Now, it’s time to recreate new ensembles out of the existing pieces in your wardrobe. So, go on, bring out the stylist in you and give your old hoodies and sweatshirts a trendy transformation and be on point this season.
Ritika Taneja, senior director- categories at ShopClues, lists some of the ways:
Add a dash of quirk to your hoodies or sweatshirts by sewing pom-poms or tassels at the end of your hood's string. You can get fluffy ones from the market or make them from scratch using some wool strings. Sew them onto the hemline or cuffs if you want a heavy dose of cuteness.
2. Paint your imagination
You can give your beloved but fraying leather jacket a makeover by adding a splash of color to it. Get a bottle of spray paint and let your imagination run wild as you paint a kaleidoscope of colors and patterns on your jacket. You can even use stencils to paint more intricate styles.

3. Add embroidered patches
Clothes peppered with embroidered patches are the new way to up your style game. Simply add some eye-catching patches and you are good to go!
4. Brooch and statement pins
Pins are a great accessory investment because they are versatile and definitely a must-have fashion staple. Just throw a brooch or a pin onto your favorite sweatshirt for an instant lift to your outfit.
5. The bling fling
Embellished sweatshirts are one of the hottest trends this season. Brighten up your boring hoodie by adding sequin or studs to it.
