Be bold. Be you. Be jeweled! Our friends at Who What Wear and I agree that there’s no limit to the amount of sparkle you can put in your step this season.
Footwear, accessories, and everyday denim are getting a luxurious twist, as seen in Christopher Kane’s collection for J Brand, which is popping with outrageous patterns and overstated pizzazz. It’s time to take last year’s ordinary cutoffs to the cutting edge!
To create: Start with your favorite pair of jean cutoffs. Use a ruler and a pencil to create a grid pattern - size of grid and spacing depends on your preference (our lines are approx 1/2 an inch a part). Use a pencil to draw grid and then trace over with white puffy paint. Once dry use a real or fake flower to dip in fabric paint to create a stamp. Stamp the flower shape directly onto shorts in an alternating pattern. We used about 9-10 stamps per each side of short. Once paint is dry use fabric glue to secure large paillette sequins to the center of each “flower” shape. Once all are in place and dry then glue the larger flat back gems to the center of each sequin. Finally secure the smaller gems between each “flower” shape. (Approximately 5-6 per side). Allow to completely dry before wearing.
