Staying warm and chic during fashion week has never looked better. Our latest 4 Ways to Embellish feature will show off the best ways to impress everyone with your little black sweater. Bring out your inner diva by adding a bold fringe to your shoulder sleeves. This simple transformations will have every style photographer looking your way.
50MM Chainette Fringe with chain
Lay your 50MM Chainette Fringe with chain trim on the smallest part of your sleeve. You can either wrap the trim around or focus on one side.
If you’re only highlighting one side, cut the strip from one end to the other.
If you want to have fringe on the front and backside, wrap the trim around the sleeve.
Cut the trim at the desired location.
Continue doing this until you have completed your entire sleeve.
This will allow you to lay our the 50MM Chainette Fringe with chain trim in the desired location.
Using E-6000, glue the trim down on each tier.
Apply a small amount of pressure.
How chic is this look?
Turn up the glam factor by embellishing the collar of your sweater with beaded appliqués.
55 x 55MM Hot-Fix R.S. Motif
Sweater- Ours was from H&M
Apply a small amount of glue on the back of your 55 x 55MM Hot-Fix R.S. Motif.
HINT: We placed a piece of oak tag in between our sweater ensuring that the glue would not go through the other end of the sweater.Apply a small amount of pressure on the 55 x 55MM Hot-Fix R.S. Motif making sure the glue has set in.
Continue this technique for each of your 55 x 55MM Hot-Fix R.S. Motifs. We outlined the neck, but experiment with your pattern.
This neckline was worthy of a ballerina bun.
Rock the runway by adding a faux leather trim to your sleeves.
1 1/4″ Faux Leather with chain
Sweater(Ours was from H&M)
Measure the 1 1/4″ Faux Leather with chain around the wristband. Leave a bit of room prior to cutting so the 1 1/4″ Faux Leather with chain trim will remain comfortable.
Since this 1 1/4″ Faux Leather with chain contains leather and chain, mark the area that you would like to cut.
This will make the cutting process much easier.
Using your flat pliers, separate the chain.
Once the chain is separated, cut the leather trim.
Repeat this for both sleeves.
Wrap the 1 1/4″ Faux Leather with chain around the wristband, and attach each end using your flat fliers.
Feel free to use your Magna Tac Glue to ensure the stability of your trim.

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.

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.
