Fashion DIY: 2 Ways to Instantly Restyle Your Jackets & Coats

DIY: Instantly update the look of your coat

Restyle an Old Coat

Take this old peacoat, absolutely classic, but also extremely boring! It’s been hiding away in my closet for awhile. I’ve been searching all season for replacement, but have yet one that fits quite as nicely. But this old one here, fits just lovely. This peacoat needs something to make it fab all over again. So how about some shiny, new buttons?!

Buttons are actually considered a part of your accessory count, think of how rings, necklaces, watch, bracelets, earring actually set the tone and character of an outfit. Buttons are a key embellishment that ability to easily change the look of the jacket or coat.  An ensemble can take on a whole new life with this simple trick. I’m looking to create a chic, polished, yet unique look.  So I’ve decided to go for some eye catching bright gold embossed buttons.

DIY: Instantly update your leather jacket

Restyle an Old Jacket

The black leather jacket is a staple to any chic wardrobe. But lately, my leather has been looking sad! It needs something special…

Faux fur has been such a huge trend this season. It’s an easy way to add warmth and winterize any look. So why not add it to a leather jacket? I’ve added this detachable fur collar to soften the tough look of leather, while creating warms and adding a polished touch to the leather jacket.  The best part if you can add this fur collar to any one of your jackets or coats for an instantly updated look.

Sometimes the best finds are in your own closet. 🙂
