When I first saw images from Gareth Pugh’s Fall 2016 Runway show I instantly fell in love with the bold coordinated looks. There’s nothing I love more than coordinated matching pieces in one look. I know it might look a little much and you have to be very careful with it so it doesn’t look like you’re trying too hard or looking a little clownish. But done right, it can really create an awesome fashion moment.
This wide brim halo style hat is so cool to me and I had to do a DIY version for myself and share with you guys. It’s super easy (A little time consuming) but you can achieve that runway look for yourself too!
– A wide brim hat (Obviously) – I got mine from H&M
– A piece of fabric for the stars. I used some metallic faux leather for a real contrast
– 2 A4 sheets of star templates (I just got my template from google – search for ‘star vector shape’)
– Some glue. Either pritt stick or fabric glue
– A sewing machine (If you haven’t got one you can always just use a strong glue to attach the stars)
1. Glue the printed paper with your star shapes on the back of your fabric and cut out the stars. You can make them whatever size you want depending on the size of your hat.
2. Place the stars on your hat and move them around till you are happy with the positioning
3. Using your glue, fix the stars to the hat so they stay in place while sewing
4. If you haven’t got a machine or can’t be bothered to spend time sewing just use a strong glue and glue the stars on
5. Cut off whatever excess threads there are
6. Cut out new stars using your other A4 sheet for the inside part of the hat. I put stars on both the top and bottom of the hat but of course you don’t have too.
7. Place your new stars over the outline of the previously sewn stars to make sure they align and sew again.
8. Once that’s all done you can add whatever else you’d like. I added a velvet ribbon just to make the hat a little more expensive
ET VOILA! Easy right?
Hope you liked it!
