DIY High Fashion Trends
October 18, 2016
In the aftermath of Fashion Month, high end brands such as Gucci and Balmain have been delivering major style envy with their new trends, but with a single designer choker costing no less than a few hundred dollars, it doesn’t seem very practical. A DIY project that mimics runway looks is easy, looks good, and, most importantly, works on a budget.
These trendy accessories are making a comeback in a big way. They can add edge to a simple outfit and are very simple to make.
Materials used: lace cloth fabric, thread, needle
This trend combines two new favorites in the fashion world: lace and velvet.
Materials needed: a velvet shirt or dress, lace, scissors, fabric glue or a sewing machine
Dubbed by some as “Kanye” shirts, due to its similarity to his Yeezy collection, these shirts are edgy, especially when paired with skinny jeans and a DIY choker.
Materials needed: plain shirt, scissors
Gucci led the movement and now embellishing old jeans or jean jackets is stylish.
Materials used: Jeans (skirt, pants, or jacket), iron-on embroiders, iron
