(RNN) - Before you throw away that old sweater that you think makes you look like a grandma, and those old scarves buried in a drawer, revamp your wardrobe with looks that will cost you nothing.

Instead of buying a new, expensive outfit for fall, just recycle the one you have.

If you want to follow the latest trends, step back into the mid-century with masculine plaid patterns, rich gold tones, embroidered prints and the color cobalt blue, all of which were featured on the runways this season.

Here are some tips on how to pull off the best looks by using what you already have in your closet.

Search for shades of emerald green, thigh-high boots, lingerie-inspired clothing, oversized winter coats, plaid, turtlenecks, velvet, winter white and leather, according to Huffingtonpost.

If you dig deep enough, you're sure to find a plaid skirt or blouse pushed way back in your closet. You can wear an oversized coat and an oversized sweater that gives your shoulder a peek-a-boo effect, with a plaid skirt.

You also could pair a plaid blouse with neutral colored pants. For a sleek look try finding a pair of tapered trouser pants in warm tones. These looks can be accentuated with your favorite accessories, such as a scarf or clutch bag.

You can top your outfit off with a great pair of pumps for the holidays. If you want to draw attention to your heels, choose a striped or checkered style shoe, or opt for a nice nude, gold or wild cheetah print. An eye-catching pump will make a simple and chic outfit a flirty statement piece.

Dresses that accentuate curves make the perfect romantic looks for Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's. Cobalt blue, red, black, cream, pretty pinks, pastels and rich colors that pop will give you a feminine and fun look. Fur, along with silk fabrics, with ruffles or fringes make outfits more stylish, and you can go from casually relaxing at home to the office in a matter of minutes with selections of clothing that have these added details.

Also, if there were any better time to match your clothes, it's now. Monochromatic looks are flattering and it doesn't hurt to throw in a different color belt or purse to change it up. Have fun with many colors and accessories.

If you really want to add a new piece of clothing or accessory to your wardrobe, you can save money if you go thrifting. Thrift shops or boutiques in your area will have a lot of vintage items that you can play around with without breaking your holiday budget. You can find unique jewelry and clothes you can easily style for under $100.

You can also visit your local fabric store and create your own outfits and accessories with the hottest colors and prints for fall. Headscarves are a great accessory to any outfit, and they are perfect for summer, fall and winter. While it's cool out, you can wear your scarf around your neck, and you can wear it in your hair as a cute turban or many other ways.

If you don't know what to do with your hair, it will be best to pull it back and keep it out of your face, because your facial features are what really need to be emphasized. Hair pinned up with a nice cascade of curls is in style. Try conditioning your roots and giving them a good treatment with mayonnaise or yogurt to keep your hair from drying out because of the change in weather.

The best makeup to wear is dark eye shadow for a dramatic, smoky eye effect. Apply deep, sultry red lipsticks for those kissers, with a powder to contour and highlight your cheekbones. Your newly painted canvas should scream regal sophistication.

Also, get healthy looking and glowing skin with a good body scrub and hydrating lotion that will give you an overall great appearance. It's all about keeping your skin moisturized and healthy-looking this season, according to Cosmopolitan. You can make homemade scrubs and face masks from items stored in your refrigerator, and they also make great holiday gifts.

And while you're checking out your refrigerator, it could only help to add a "glowing green smoothie" into your diet regimen for fall and winter. The enormous amount of nutrients you will gain, coupled with healthy meals, will be perfect compliments to your skin and outfits.

Use that extra kale or baby spinach you have stashed in your fridge. Also add some fruits of your choice for flavor.

So, clean out your closet and fridge, and get to digging for the hidden treasures you already own. There are so many ways you can make old clothes look brand new, and better yet, be in style this fall. For more style inspiration watch YouTube videos on the latest trends, so you can easily compare and sort through what you have.
