12 Easy Summer Wardrobe Staples You Can DIY

With everyone’s favorite season now in full swing, you’ve probably begun to exhaust some of your favorite warm weather clothes. And as much as we’d love to go on a super shopping spree, we also have to pay the rent. So if you’re up for getting a little crafty, update your wardrobe with one (or all) of these fashionable projects.

1. Beach Hat: Don’t overlook that basic sun hat from the drugstore. With a little bit of love it can easily become your new beach BFF. (via Brit + Co)

2. Crop Top: Hit up the thrift store and look for an oversized men’s button down to create this versatile crop top. (via The Felted Fox)

3. Faux Espadrilles: Have a pair of sneakers, wedges or sandals that have seen better days? Give them a new life with just a little bit of hot glue and twine to turn them into the trendiest shoe of the summer. (via Brit + C0)

4. Midi Skirt: Not too short and not too long, this is perfect for everything from an afternoon at the beach to a date night. (via Merrick’s Art)

5. DIY Summer Bikinis: Our girl LaurDIY shows off simple ways to make over your old swimsuit. Bonus: Grab up some cheapies on sale now to add them to your rotation next year. (via LaurDIY)

6. Blanket Bag: Have an old blanket lying around that you never use? Bust out your sewing machine and transform it into a colorful beach bag. (via Brit + Co)

7. Beach Cover Up: Here’s an idea that doesn’t require any sewing skills. With a few cuts and knots, an oversized t-shirt can become your go-to beach cover-up. (via Gina Michele)

8. Denim Cut Offs: It may seem like a super simple idea, but it can easily go totally wrong. If there is anyone we’d trust to show us how to make a killer pair of cutoffs, it’s definitely going to be Levi’s. (via Levi’s)

9. Tasseled Heels: Got some plans to hit the town? Spice up a basic pair of heels with some fun leather tassels. (via Brit + Co)

10. Watermelon Fanny Pack: Headed to a festival? Leave that purse at home and strap this on with your new denim cutoffs. (via Brit + Co)

11. Donut Sunglasses: Who says you can’t get a little bit playful with your eyewear game? Donut Day has come and gone, but these sunglasses will be cool all summer. (via Studio DIY)

12. White T-Shirt Hack: Grab a pack of Hane’s tees and some scissors and transform the boxy top into a sexy, open-backed number. (via Brit + Co)
