Classics are classics for a reason, but they don't have to be dated. We partnered with Tiffany & Co. to show you how to make everyday items look modern.
Itching to repurpose your closet favorites and see them take on new personalities? It's not as daunting as it sounds. Whether you'd like to resuscitate a neglected
white button-down blouse or inject some spunk into your utilitarian cardigan sweater, we've highlighted five simple ways you can upgrade classic pieces.
Belt your cardigan sweaters
Cardigan sweaters are voluminous and bulky by nature, but you can streamline this heavy fabric by cinching a belt around the waistline. Pick one in a contrasting color so that it stands out against the knit.

Update your trench coat
quintessential trench coat is given new life in the form of khaki sleeveless outerwear. Like its long-sleeved sister, the trench vest is a transitional piece and can be worn over rolled up jeans or dresses.

Your basic white t-shirt works as a blouse
Everyone has a classic t-shirt hiding in the closet. You can give new purpose to the garment with a few styling tips. Start by
layering delicate necklaces from Tiffany & Co. at varying lengths around the neckline, then roll up the sleeves and tuck the shirt into the waistline of a full skirt.

A classically sharp menswear-style white button-down typically lends itself toward a preppy look. Rough things up by draping a leather moto jacket over it for a hint of grunge.

Pretend your denim jacket is a shirt
If there's a denim jacket in your arsenal and you've grown tired of wearing it in its natural state — as a jacket — try buttoning it up to the neck and wearing it like a shirt. Pair it with a full skirt or
Tiffany & Co.'s Olive Leaf cuff for a refined touch.
