Many runway shows are very intimidating. There’s a fierce model walking down with a well calculated soundtrack matching each step. We often overlook the details of each piece. While examining some of the recent runway looks, we came across M&J-like trims that resemble the most coveted pieces.
20MM Braid With Chain Velvet Ribbon
4MM Metal Chain
1 1/2″ Half Stem Aluminum Chain
Even though we’re loving varsity embellishments on sweaters, jackets, beanies and scarves we opted to go in a different direction. Inspired by Lanvin’s Fall 2013 collection, we created this Varsity Letter necklace.
Enjoy the diy and check out MJTrim.com for supplies
Lanvin’s Fall 2013 Collection
2” Sequin Letters Heat Seal Letters Silver/Grey/White
3 Denim Iron-On Patches
7MM Flat Curb Chain
11MM Flat Chain
19MM Metal Chain
6MM Molded Pearls
Iron two of the Denim Iron-On Patches together back to back with the denim on the outside.
Place your 2” Sequin Letters Heat Seal Letters Silver/Grey/White where you’d like it to appear.
Carefully flip it over so the letter is facing down on the ironing board.
Gently iron the back of the denim. The heat causes the 2” Sequin Letters Heat Seal Letters Silver/Grey/White to stay in place.
Once your 2” Sequin Letters Heat Seal Letters Silver/Grey/White feels secure, flip the denim over.
Glue pearls around the 2” Sequin Letters Heat Seal Letters Silver/Grey/White creating a circle outline.
Cut the excess denim off around the 6MM Molded Pearls.
OPTION 1: Sew your chain around the 6MM Molded Pearls creating an additional border.
OPTION 2: Glue your chain around the 6MM Molded Pearls creating an additional border
Regardless of which option you selected for the previous step, leave an inch of 7MM Flat Curb Chain at the top.
Now safety pin the remaining chain together.
Carry your 11MM Flat Chain chain through the loop you had just created.
Use an additional safety pin to secure both the 19MM Metal Chain and the 11MM Flat Chain
Envious of all those Gossip Girl outfits? Here’s your chance to recreate your own GG inspired outfit sans dress codes. Designers such as Tommy Hilfiger, Ralph Lauren, Opening Ceremony and A.P.C have coveted some of the preppier looks that are undeniably cool.
Styling Tip: Try mixing and matching prep school pieces with leather to create an edgy look or opt for the full on quirky look shown on the runway.
Varsity Letters have been a staple on high school campuses for decades. After these D.I.Y tutorials these pieces will be a staple in your closets as well.

Upon seeing Oscar De La Renta’s Spring 2013 collection, we were in awe. The floral embellishments had been kicked into high gear leaving us with waves of excitement. Clearly we were left with no choice but to recreate an affordable but just as fabulous piece using M&J products.
Oscar De La Renta Spring 2013 RTW
Crew Neck Sweater ($7 at K-mart)
Rosette By Yard(21 Rosettes) in Light Pink
Flower By The Yard 1 1/2″
Cut each rosette individually.
Now individually cut out each flower from the other trim.
Lay out the flowers in a design that you’re fond of.
We spaced the flowers out but feel free to play around with the layout.
Pin down each flower once you have finalized your design.
Begin sewing each flower onto the sweater.
