DIY Inspiration: BCBGMAXAZRIA, Gucci, Marc Jacobs

I’m all about making good use of what you already own. But if you’re not too crazy about what is in your wardrobe, why not spruce it up with a few embellishments? I love giving something a new spin just by adding new elements. So it’s no surprise that these DIY inspiration ideas focus on easy upcycling techniques. Here’s what I’m loving lately!

BUY: (Above) BCBGMAXAZRIA Karl Crystal-Embellished Blazer, $398 (BCBGMAXAZRIA)
DIY: Fabric glue and rhinestones… lots of them. Measuring tape and fabric chalk would be useful to space things out evenly.

BUY: (Above) Gucci Embellished wool and cashmere sweater, $4800 (My Theresa)
DIY: Attach (or just wear) a cameo necklace with a chunky sweater for the same look. You can do this with a few hand stitches.

BUY: Marc Jacobs Striped Shirt, $481 (Farfetch)
DIY: Fabric glue and fringe is all you need to embellish a shirt in a similar way. Loving the scalloped detail of that fringe.

BUY: Marc Jacobs Stud Safety Pin Brooch, $45 (Lane Crawford)
DIY: Tiny flat back pyramid studs (or brads from the scrap book section) glued on to a large safety pin. Easy!
