Why spend a ton of money on that pricey “it accessory” of the season when you can just whip out your glue gun and DIY? Continue reading for a list of stylish fashion DIYs that you can totally pull off this summer!

1. Pearl-embellished slides

Thanks to high-end designers like Miu Miu, pearl-embellished slides is a trend that doesn’t appear to be going away any time soon. The slides above are a dupe for the (now sold out) Zara ones, and look super easy (and fun!) to make. Happy sewing! (via Deconstrut)

2. Pom-pom & tassel basket tote

Embellished basket totes are all the rage right now…but have you ever considered decorating your own versus buying a pricey one in-store? All you need is to find a bare basket (which you can get for cheap at the thrift store), and then embellish it with some colourful trim, tassels and fun pom-poms. (via Made in a Day)

3. Tassel sandals

These tassel sandals may look super expensive (okay, maybe they are considering the DIY-er here used Stuart Weitzman’s), however, you can definitely achieve the same look for less. All you need is a pair of plain ankle-strap sandals and to create some colourful tassels…and voila! (via Honestly WTF)

4. Frayed jeans


One of the biggest denim trends to pop up as of late is frayed, fringed-hem jeans. And while the look may seem intimidating to DIY, it’s actually a lot easier than you think. Time to grab your scissors and start snipping! (via Huffington Post)

5. Pearl-embellished jeans

Another denim trend we can’t get enough of? Pearl-embellished jeans. There’s just something about the juxtaposition of fancy pearls and rugged denim that makes for a drool-worthy combo. The DIY-ed jeans here are a virtual dupe for the super-pricey version from Paige Denim! (via Love Maegan)

6. Multi-layer tassel earrings

For some reason, tassel earrings always end up being expensive af when bought in-store (we’re talking to you Anthropologie!) Luckily, this clever DIY-er has provided a handy step-by-step tutorial on how to get the same look for less. (via The Stripe)

7. Sequin sun hat

Unfortunately, the almost $500 Eugenia Kim, celeb-approved sun hats are not in our budget right now. But a wallet-friendly DIY that looks pretty much identical to the real deal? Count us in! (via The Southern Gloss)
