Three Quick DIYs For Your Party Wardrobe (aka Put A Bow On it)

DIY Dec 15, 2016

Getting dressed up for a party is one of my favourite things to do, but often time (and money) can get in the way of a really great outfit.

This happens where nothing I’ve got feels sufficiently festive or fresh and I’m left sitting in front of my closet thinking what am I going to wear?! In case you find yourself in that position this holiday season, we’ve put together three very easy DIY updates so that you can transform a piece from your closet just before you dash out the door. We’ve used silk and cashmere pieces from Grana‘s new range because sometimes all you need is a great fabric and a DIY update to give you the best outfit at the party… Our motto? When in doubt, put a bow on it.

Bow Neck Knit

Wearing: Merino Mock Neck Sweater

Velvet and grey marl is such a great combination, so why not combine it together in the form of a crazy easy update to a sweater. Turn your sweater into something luxe with just the flick of a wrist. I’ve paired it with paperbag waist shorts but a sequin skirt would also up the ante!

Done and done.

Happy Feet

Party shoes are pretty much a prerequisite for that big holiday event, but you’ve probably realised by now just how few times you’ll actually wear them. The answer? Dress up a simple pair of shoes with removable shoe clips! So easy to make yourself and a party shoe without the commitment. We chose these sequin patches because bows bows bows! Double win if you go for something with a low/medium heel – cos you’re going to wanna dance all night!

Present Top

Wearing: Silk V Neck Camisole in Rio Red

To all you ladies who like to leave things to the last minute… True story, I have a friend who often texts me ‘I’m at Zara buying something for tonight’ as I’m on my way to the restaurant! Well this one’s for you. Take a simple top (this V Neck camisole is perfect), some ribbon and away you go. The easiest party update around but one that says I’m feeling festive, and also I am the gift.

Enjoy (that’s an order).

It’s so so easy to update pieces from your wardrobe using a few simple craft supplies. And it doesn’t take more than five minutes. Hoping this holidays that you have time to put a bow on it πŸ™‚
