Embellished sweatshirts are one of the hottest trends this Fall. In the past, I have been a big supporter of fancy sweats (here, here and to complete the look… here) and obviously I’m happy that this trend is sticking around. There are about a zillion ways to glam up a boring old sweatshirt so let this serve as your warning… there will more than likely be more embellished sweatshirt DIY projects to come! In the meantime, sequins and sweats…

Mr. De Mille, I’m ready for my close up!
Next week I’m heading back to Texas to spend the Holidays with my family. Everytime my Mom and I chat she asks what I’m going to pack for my trip home? What am I going to pack?!?!!? Sweats and more sweats! My plan is to spend my entire two week vacation on the couch vegging out and watching HGTV. I plan to never leave the couch, but being that it’s the Holidays, I guess I should be prepared to get glitzy for all the family festivities. So much like my metallic tudexo stripe sweatpants from Thanksgiving (which will be coming to Texas with me for Christmas), I think it’s time to add a little embellishment to my sweatshirt. Even though I’m on vacation I have to stay camera ready because there’s a 98.3% chance the random family photo we take in my Aunt’s kitchen during her dessert party will end up as the cover image for the Christmas cards my Mom sends out next year.
I was surfing the webpages of Vogue.com and found a little DIY inspiration (here) for this project.
If needed, use pliers or jewelry nippers to deconstruct your earrings. The bigger the earrings are the better they will appear on the sweatshirt. I purchased these earrings from Forever 21.
Hand stitch the earring to the sweatshirt to be sure it’s secure.
