Senior Research Writer Jana Pijak Counts Down Her Favorite Fashion DIY Projects

 - Apr 14, 2015
If you love runway looks, but don't have the budget to pull them off, these high fashion DIY projects could bring your spring wardrobe up a notch. Trend Hunter's Jana Pijak shares her favorite examples, from sheer-sleeved t-shirts to marbled sneaker DIYs and bedazzled bag tutorials.

These fashion DIY tutorials are all about transforming simple, inexpensive and existing pieces into more stylish attire. A classic sandal becomes a tasseled stiletto heel thanks to Honestly WTF, using materials you can find at a craft store. A menswear blog can help you turn a regular black tee into a runway-inspired garment. Or if you have cheap black slip-on shoes, you can give them a marbled look with an easy Fall for DIY tutorial. On the other hand, you can repurpose an old Coach purse for summer by adding rhinestones and studs.
