DIY Blazer Refashion: Tutorial

[VIDEO] DIY Military-Inspired Blazer Refashion | Part 1

Embellished blazers make a great statement piece. If you’re looking for something eye-catching, this would be the way to go. As a trend, it is never truly goes out of style and should definitely be considered a staple in your wardrobe.

With all it’s details and elaborate designs, they can get pretty pricey! Which is why DIYing your own wouldn’t be such a bad idea. Yes it takes a little effort (time and patience), but it’ll be totally swoon worthy!

In this video, I demonstrate 3 military-inspired looks. The first is an easy minimalistic look, while the second is a little more intricate. The third plays on the second, with a touch more detail.

If you decide to go for it, first step would be to settle on a design. I encourage you to use my video as a guide and go online and seek inspiration. Grab elements from different looks and make it your own! [Send me a photos, I’d love to see!]
