Fashion is always evolving. Some looks almost never die out. It’s always better to preserve these unique pieces and revive them at the right time. Reinventing an old pair of denim is as interesting as it is economical and you can do it at the luxury of your home.

Denims are the easiest option to paint. It’s an experimental fabric. Splash dots of paint on the pocket of your denim shirt or back pocket of the jeans. Get a cool hippie look with motifs painted on the back of a classic denim jacket. Keep the motif simple if you are not very good with your hands and use stencils wherever possible.

You can restore your old scarf and stole too by adding simple lines of contrasting colours on the width of the scarf. An old double-breasted denim jacket can always be redone with jewels, buttons and small hand-painted elements — like leaf motifs on the pockets can make a completely unconventional fashion statement.

When styling hand-painted garments, make sure the uniqueness of the element is highlighted. Complement a hand-painted scarf with a monotone top or outfits. The author is the owner of label DiyaRajvvir
