DIY BUCKLE NECK SWEATER

Back home after beautiful days away, I'm definitely not ready for coming back to work tomorrow (I mean...who could be?). Buuut today is holiday here in Italy, so I want to show you a quick and nice DIY I made some time ago, right for the middle season (read= when you don't know what to wear). Adding a simple buckle to an oversized sweater is the key to make it look unique and cool. Continue reading to see more! // Tornata a casa dopo dei bellissimi giorni via, non sono assolutamente pronta a tornare a lavoro domani (e chi lo sarebbe?). Maaa oggi è vacanza quindi posso mostrarvi un fai da te veloce e carino che ho preparato un po' di tempo fa proprio per questa stagione in cui non si sa mai cosa mettersi. Aggiungendo una semplice fibbia ad un golf oversize, gli ho dato un aspetto più originale e moderno. Continuate a leggere per saperne di più!

I like oversized sweaters, but sometimes
they need a little refresh if we want to avoid a shabby and too cozy look.
This is why I decided to add a buckle on its neck, to make it look modern
and up to date, perfect for these Spring days, with a pair of skinny jeans
or as a dress if weather is warmer.
//
Mi piacciono i maglioni oversize, ma
a volte richiedono un ritocco, se vogliamo evitare un look troppo casalingo.
Ecco perché ho deciso di aggiungere una fibbia sullo scollo, per renderlo
un po' più moderno e originale, perfetto per questi giorni Primaverili,
con dei jeans skinny o come abito, se il tempo lo permette.

You need // Vi occorre:

- Oversized sweater. // Maglione oversize.
- A buckle from a belt you no longer use. // La fibbia di una cintura che non usate più.
- Needle and thread. // Ago e filo.

How to // Come procedere:

You just need to sew the buckle to your sweater (choose the right height,
so that the buckle can fit it perfectly) and you're already done!
I told you it was quick!
I've been looking around for a buckle sweater for months,
then I opted for the DIY version and I couldn't be more satisfied!
//
Dovete semplicemente cucire la fibbia al maglione (dovete semplicemente
scegliere la giusta altezza così che stia bene sullo scollo) e avete già fatto!
Ve l'avevo detto che era veloce!
Ho cercato un golf simile per mesi, poi ho optato per la versione fai da te
e non potrei essere più soddisfatta!

  18. This is just too freakin’ good!!! I love this DIY, you’re so creative! I like how it’s so simple but the black belt gives it a kind of badass vibe, it’s almost like you’re wearing lingerie but not. Love!
