Let’s get some DIY inspo from menswear…

I’m not going to lie, the plastic clothing trend has confused me. I honestly just don’t want people seeing my sweat pool up in my clothes. However; I had never thought about the potential for a see through gemmed up raincoat. Imagine this in a cute moto jacket. You’d definitely need some waterproof glue but I mean… it’s an idea.

I really respect the thought process of embellishing a sequined blazer. I think it works because the black is pretty subdued, and it looks like the either crystals or flat back pearls keep it the teensiest bit low key?

If I owned a full sequin blazer it’d be getting DIY’d right now.

Diamond pinstripes seem to be a thing this season, but I’m really loving it on the loose jogger pants. I mean, why can’t loungewear be glamorous? I also think it helps weigh down the drape a bit. I mean, sequin tape and Gem-Tac or a needle and thread and this would definitely be achievable.

I’ve seen strappy sandals like this everywhere, but I’m really into the silk finish and the two straps. I think this would be easy if you started off with a pair of normal thin strapped sandals, stiffened some ribbon with fabric stiffener or interfacing and gluing them on.

I mean, high fashion can be as easy as some glue and the fearlessness to embellish already embellished things.
