When you find that favourite pair of jeans or shoes, you tend to wear it so much to the point that it begins to look old quickly. But going out and trying to find a new favourite piece is too costly and ineffective. There are also ways to wear your clothes in new ways that makes it look like you just bought them.
Instead, there are a couple of easy hacks that will give your best-loved items a longer life. And the best thing about it is that a lot of these little tricks use things you already have in your home. We had no idea we were wearing #2 wrong.
