It’s Friday, so I’m dressing up these striped pants for Pt. 2 of “How to Wear Striped Pants.” I just can’t get enough of my favorite lace-up bodysuit I bought in the summer from Missguided. It is the perfect top to wear for a night out. I love a good bodysuit with a pair of high waist pants like these paired with a leather jacket (because it is low 60s here..) and booties. You can dress up these striped pants with a bodysuit or a cute crop top always looks good with high waist trousers. Shop the look below! Happy Friday! -De

Want to add a little lace-up to your suit, or since summer is pretty much over..to your low-cut top? As we know lace-up has been a huge trend this summer and it is carrying into fall. I decided to add some lace to my Asos one-piece swimsuit not only because I love this trend, but because it is a little revealing with sudden movement. Here are 5 simple steps to adding lace-up to your clothes:
Supplies: Grommet pliers, grommets, scissors, pencil (fabric chalk), piece of fabric to practice on (make sure it’s the same thickness of the fabric you are working on to get the same results). I practiced setting the grommet on a similar swimwear fabric.
- Practice, practice, practice on another piece of fabric before applying the grommets to the garment you are working on so you don’t make any mistakes!
- First, mark your garment in the areas you want place your grommets.
- Using your scissors, cut a small slit in the marked area to fit the grommet in the hole. Make sure to cut a small hole, so the grommet fits tight. You may need to stretch the hole around the grommet to make sure it is secure.
- Once it is settled in, take the pliers, place the grommet in between (in the fabric), and press down pretty hard to secure the grommet in. You may need to rotate the pliers around the grommet to make sure it is equally secure all the way around.
- It’s set! Once all your grommets are set in, lace it up!
