After I recently complimented a friend on her lovely “new” coat, she told me that she actually got it from her favorite store and is always buying second-hand or finding ways to revive and repurpose her old clothes.

When several of my other friends said they were doing the same thing, it became clear that more and more of us are trying to spend less on our wardrobes – and make what we have go further.

Admittedly, most of us are feeling the pressure right now, which, combined with a creeping sense that we need to be more mindful of the earth, is why many of us seem to be holding on to our clothes and shoes for longer.

Sure, it’s all well and good to make your favorite skinnies last another year or your favorite sneakers to stay sparkling white longer, but no matter how well you take care of them, after a while they tend to look a little worse for wear ( think: faded jeans, dirty trousers and jumpers with cuts).

The good news is that it’s a lot easier and cheaper to restore clothes and shoes than you think. Here are my top picks that make reviving your old clothes and shoes a breeze.
