Clothing 'can be reworked' for new look
Though charity shops and the like can provide people with numerous bargains, many may want to look to their existing wardrobe to customise their look, it has been suggested.

Reid Alton, the marketing manager at the London College of Fashion, said that many people are focused on originality, particularly those studying at the institution, with many likely customising or combining legwear such as tights or leggings with new styles.

The key is in making small changes to clothing that has remained the same for a long time, according to Reid.

"You don't need a sewing machine, or particularly advanced sewing skills to change the buttons on a jacket, and that can be re-working it," the expert explained.

"You do, however, need sewing skills to make sure you get a better quality garment."

Many people are continuing to cut back on small purchases in the credit crunch, with 7.3 million UK adults admitting to no longer tipping at restaurants and 25.4 million others using discount vouchers on a regular basis.
