The Yeezy sweaters that came down the fall 2016 ready-to-wear runway were, in my opinion, to die for. But momma ain't about to drop some serious cash for something she could do herself. So that's exactly what we're doing today. We're going to make our own Yeezy style destroyed sweater for the low price of $3.00.
Adam thought I looked like I was trying to be homeless, but I DON'T CARE. I think it's pretty cool.
Alright, let's get into it.
Step 1: Find cheap sweatshirt at your local Wal-Mart. I got mine for $3.00 and there's a lot of different colors to choose from if you're into wearing color. But this is Do You Have It In Black? so we don't do a whole of color here.
Step 2: Remove bottom and top hems and little v-stitching (if there is one). I also ended up removing the sleeve hems as well to make it look more deconstructed and less like a normal sweatshirt.
Step 3: Cut holes. I recommend putting it on to do this so you don't accidentally cut a hole right over your boobs. As cool as people thought it was in Mean Girls, wearing your shirts Regina George style is not cute. I also cut a little more the neckline here and ripped the holes open after I cut them. This is the time to exercise your artistic freedom and cut as many holes as you like and make the sweatshirt your own.
Step 4: Style.
So as you can see, my sweatshirt ended up coming off my shoulder a little bit. I just wore a bandeau underneath because I personally don't like my bra straps showing, but it would be cute with a lacy bralette underneath. I paired my sweatshirt with some scuba leggings from Express to keep the look edgy.
I added a necklace to make up for my really naked neckline. I found this one on sale at H&M, but you can find a similar one here. I like how you can see my lovely photographer in my necklace because it's so damn shiny.
Surprise, surprise, I'm wearing my adidas again. These are my favorite pair of shoes and they'll continue to be in blog until they are unwearable. In case you need a refresher, I got them at DSW.
Hopefully you enjoyed this DIY and will try it out for yourself!
