Repurposing old clothes is a clever way to get a new look without spending loads of dough. That said, if you've grown tired of the high neck on your trusty turtleneck, don't throw it out. Instead, transform it into a nifty mock turtleneck -- a top with a fitted neck that isn't tall enough to fold over. This once-ignored top has a new air of geek-coolness thanks to late Apple Founder Steve Job's penchant for wearing them. Snagging this look won't break the bank, and as a bonus, you don't even need major sewing skills to complete the task.
