Following our obsession with sweatshirts for day wear we have also come up with a way to wear them for going out on the town to windy rooftop bars: a homemade and customized sweatshirt, embellished with all sorts of studs, spikes and crystals. The result is a personalized couture sweatshirt that cost 25GBP to buy from Stradivarius and 10 quid to revamp.
Phillip Lim would have been extremely proud of us as this is who we got our inspiration from.
We chopped off the arm cuffs , rolled them up and cut the length of the sweatshirt to wear it cropped or just long enough to be tucked under a high waist skirt. The studding took about 16 hours to finish but made evenings at home something to look forward to. Try your hands on this stunning women fashion styling idea.
We teamed our homemade couture top with a waffle knit cream petal skirt from Zara, THE new skirt shape to wear for 2014 , strappy black sandals and a gold chain black mini bag from Saint Laurent.
The finishing touch to this sporty yet rock-chic look is a Swarovski crystal ear cuff by Ryan Storer, Aussie jewel wry designer favoured by Beyoncé and Rihanna.
Nothing feels better than wearing your own brand of couture!
