DIY Inspiration: Embellished Military Jacket

I’ve been searching for a dark green military-style jacket for months but could never find one that was the right color and length for my shorty self. So I was psyched when I spotted this one at a thrift store for $10!! Trust me, I clutched this baby tight all the way to the register out of an irrational fear that someone would snatch it out of my hands.


It’s got really cute details but I thought it could use a little something to break up all the green and give it a little personality.  So I jumped on the internet for inspiration and came across some interesting options.

~I could sew on jewels like this one via Lovelyish:


~Or do something with fabric paint like this tongue-in-cheek take from The Casual Free Style:


~Or add pins for a no-sew option a la Silver:


~Or sprinkle on some studs like this one via toriasays:

In the end, I decided to take a more subtle route so my jacket will weather the ever-shifting storm of trends and look good season after season. I’m still working on it but really like where it’s heading! And I’m using a slightly unconventional material. Check back next week to see how it turns out =)
