If you're like us, your closet is likely littered with clothes that no longer fit, items that just aren't your style anymore, or things you simply forgot you had. But before you Marie Kondo the place and throw everything out, stop and ask yourself: Can I upcycle this? We bet the answer is yes — here are a few fun ways to get started.

Jeans can be such a conundrum. We want them to fit snugly all over, but too often they fit just right in the hips and legs, only to gape at the waist. Luckily, there is a solution — and it doesn't involve a belt. (Though knowing how to DIY belt loops isn't such a bad idea.)

Grab your favorite pair of jeans. Are they skinny jeans, high-waisted, baggy, boot-legged or flared? Whatever style you're rocking, here's a bet that it has one obvious feature, besides denim: topstitching.

Nothing kills the look of a great pair of denim like fabric pooling at the ankle. And hemming the jeans — only to lose that original cool, worn edge — hurts our souls just a smidge. That's why we dug deep to find a solution that doesn't require going to the tailor. The secret: moving the original hem up higher, and making it look like it was always there.
