The first of many DIYs!! I found this jacket for $12 in the garment district when I visited California this summer. I’m pretty sure it’s just a Forever 21 jacket, but i’m not sure… the tag was cut off… it seemed kind of shady. But it was only $12! So I’m ignoring any unethical possibilities. While I love neutral pieces that go with anything, I couldn’t help but embellish a little! And it was SUPER easy to do. Try it on an old favorite or a new thrift store find for a fresh new Spin!
What you need:
*Studs in different colors and sizes (I found mine at Hobby Lobby)
*Flat head Screwdriver
*Takes about 20-30 minutes
Step 1: After you’ve gathered your supplies, pick your ideal spot to place the studs. I wanted mine on the shoulders, but it would look equally rad on the lapels, on the back, or on the sleeves- it’s up to you!
Step 2: Begin studding! Most studs have 2 or 4 prongs that easily fit through the fibers of the fabric, and then you need to securely push them down. I use a screwdriver for this part, because otherwise you will kill your fingers!!
Step 3: Be sure to use a variety of studs, and be consciously random with how you place the studs. You want to be sure that the larger studs are spread out evenly.
Step 4: Keep studding until you’re happy with the look. And then get ready for the bazillion compliments that will ensue <3
