DIY fashion is all about modifying what already exists in our closet.  Cutting up an old T-shirt and giving it an updated look is one of my favorite DIY projects. Today’s project is quite simple and is a great way to achieve a grunge revival look. By adding fringe to our tee, we get the benefit of pulling off the look with out having to worry about showing too much skin. If you don't care for adding actual fringe, the video below is a great tutorial on how to cut a tee to create the "fringe" look!
Here are the steps on how to add fringe.
1. This is going to depend on your size and how short you want the shirt to be, but I measured and marked with tailors chalk 14” from mid shoulder and cut straight across.
2. The great thing about jersey is that if you pull on it slightly it will hide any imperfections in your cutting.
3. Take a measurement of the bottom of the T and cut your fringe down to the correct size adding 1” to total measurement.
4. Beginning at center back pin the fringe to the bottom inside of the shirt overlapping ½”. (Be creative with where you place the fringe. Another example is shown in the photo below, around the neckline.)
5. Use sewing machine or hand needle to stitch the fringe down.  Fabric glue could be used instead if you’re not an avid sewer, just be sure not to over do it and allow the glue to seep through to the right side of the fabric.  Since jersey cuts clean and this is a bit of a grunge look I didn’t create a hem at the bottom, just simply attached the fringe to the underside of the jersey.
6. Wear and enjoy!

If you don't care for the fringe, you can simply cut the t-shirt to create the "look" of fringe.
Here's a great video on how to do it!

Hope these tutorials work for you!

One of my favorite trends for Spring is color-blocking.
 This trend comes courtesy of Lanvin, Josh Goot, Richard Nichol and L.F Markey’s stunning catwalk collections. Layering bold block colours makes for a killer statement look which screams confidence. It is however possible to go wrong, hence these five simple rules which will have you catwalk-ready in minutes:
1. Three is the magic number
Stick to two or three colours, anymore than that and you might end up looking like a Rubik cube. Two’s fine but three makes for a more interesting and effective contrast. 
2. Don’t be afraid to clash
The normal rules don’t apply here, don’t be afraid to combine colours you usually wouldn’t, pinks and reds work well! 
3. Keep it in the family
It’s also effective to contrast two tonal variations with a more contrasting jarring colour, for example pinks and purples against a vibrant lime green. 
4. Be loud and proud
This trend is all about bold bright colours and works best with the most vivid shades. 
5. Keep it simple
The look works best with plain neutral accessories; break up the color blocks with cream, black or grey shoes/belt. Never attempt to introduce prints or patterns.
Good luck and I hope these steps work for you!
