1. Fix & Style A Gaping Neckline
1.1 If you have a worn-out neckline on a T-shirt, there's an easy fix! Fold the T-shirt over itself in the center so that the neckline gets tighter.
1.2 Use a needle and thread to sew the neckline together where you folded it, making sure to cut off any excess thread. Now your shirt will fit better, plus it has a cute new accent at the neckline!
2. Transform Leggings Into A Crop Top
2.1 Do your favorite leggings have a hole in the crotch? Don't stress – you can easily turn them into a chic crop top! Cut a large, rounded piece out of the leggings around the hole to form the neckline of your new shirt.
2.2 Pull the leggings over your head using the cut you just made as the neckline, and stick your arms through what used to be the legs of the leggings. Now your leggings look even better than when you bought them!
3. Pistachio Shell Necklace
- pistachio shells
- acrylic paint (red, orange, yellow & white)
- hot glue gun
- piece of cardboard
- chain necklace
3.1 Paint 15–20 pistachio shells with acrylic paint in each of the 4 different colors: red, orange, yellow, and white.
3.2 Arrange the colored pistachios on a semi-circular piece of cardboard and glue them in place using a hot glue gun.
3.3 Cut a chain necklace in half and glue each half on opposite ends of the cardboard, making sure they're secured to the backside. Put on your new necklace and make your big fashion statement!
4. Patterned Tights
- sheer tights
- cylindrical vase
- permanent marker
4.1 Insert the vase into 1 leg of the tights and position it near the ankle. Draw the pattern of your choice on the tights with a permanent marker.
4.2 Repeat the same process on the other side, and you're ready for your catwalk!
These 4 fashion hacks are great, easy ways to make a fun fashion statement! If everyone just wore clothes that came straight off of the rack, life would be incredibly boring. The devil's in the details, and as it turns out, he's wearing some of these amazing customized pieces!
