So a few weeks ago, I showed you guys a Thrifted haul and I told you guys that I was going to transform a few of the things that I purchased. One of those things was this blue dress.
I know. I know. It’s hideous. And you are probably thinking, what the heck was I thinking, right? Well, This wouldn’t be “Cheap but Chic” if I couldn’t tell you how to think outside of the box and make something that looks amazing…..for little money of course! So, trench vests are in! And I love them. Its such a perfect piece to wear to the office or a casual shopping day. Here is my inspiration:
Aren’t they chic?!?!? I love trench vests. So what I did was really easy!
1. Remove sleeves and hem.
2. Update buttons
One of things that I looked for when creating this coat was the fabric. The fabric had to be durable, and it had to be a medium-weight feel like trench coat fabrics are. Another thing that I looked for was the double breasted button closures. This to me, was a no brainer. Once I saw this, I immediately thought trench coat! I paired mine with a simple white t-shirt, jeans, and nude pumps. I allowed my trench vest to get all of the attention in this outfit. I’m definitely excited to add this to my closet.
