If you follow me on Pinterest, you might’ve seen that I have been pinning some of my favorite accessories from the runway to get some inspiration. From Lanvin, Balmain to Dolce and Gabanna, statement belts have been a prominent trend for 2014 Spring Summer. Balmain chain belts are my personal favorite! In today’s DIY, I’ll be showing you a super simple way to create your own statement belt.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- A Wide Belt (buckle free belts work the best)
- 6 Shoe Clips (found mine at H&M, see steps for other options)
Step 1: Wear your belt backwards (closure in the back) and mark the center of the belt in the front. At the center, place a shoe clip at the top and another clip at the bottom of the belt. If you didn’t find shoe clips, you can simply add rhinestones/gems in the design you like using E6000 glue.
Step 2: Continue adding the shoe clips next to the center pieces till it covers the front part of your belt.
That’s it, you are done! You can add more gems for extra sparkle or get the clips in different colors and place them alternately. A more colorful belt would work great as well. Have fun jazzing up those spring dresses and sweaters! Follow along on Instagram for the behind the scenes on these DIYs.
