This winter we’re seeing white, and it’s not just on the snow-covered streets. A new trend has taken the slippery sidewalks by snowstorm, and that is head-to-toe white. From the coat down to the boots, fashionistas are rocking all-white ensembles. Mixing whites isn’t off the table, making this look easy to style. The only foreseeable problem with this style? Keeping your pieces pristine! But if the dry cleaner isn’t an issue, why not rock it?
If you have a party to attend, or you’re looking to jazz up an outfit for your Valentine’s Day date, we have a DIY that will add a bit of flash to an ordinary piece! Make your outfit more exciting by taking a collared shirt or tank up a notch by adding rhinestone trim and sew-on pearls.
What You’ll Need:
10mm Glass Pearl Beads
8mm Glass Pearl Bead
1/8” Metallic Rhinestone Chain

1. Sew the end of the rhinestone trim to the tip of the collar.
2. Cut the trim to your desired length.
3. Then repeat on the other side.
