Statement jackets are one of my favourite trends as of late. I’ve spent the last few weeks eyeing up various jackets online – when suddenly I remembered my Charlotte Olympia adhesive leather stickers, which were leftover from my ABC flats.
The trickiest bit was absolutely deciding what I wanted my jacket to say! I considered doing something along the lines of ‘GIRLS RULE’ – and another high contender was ‘YES PLS’, but I only had one of each letter (you’d better believe this quickly turned into some kind of intense word puzzle!) I finally opted to dedicate my jacket to my go-to US city; Las Vegas. And I filled up the rest of the space with some equally Vegas-worthy leather stickers – diamonds, the eiffel tower, dice, to name a few..
Overall, I am absolutely stoked with how this super simple jacket DIY turned out! I’ve worn it out a few times now – and the stickers are holding up brilliantly! The only thing I’ve noticed was that my hair sometimes gets caught in some of the letters (#longhairproblems) but after dabbing down the edges with an extra bit of superglue it’s all been going quite swimmingly!
Most of all though, I love how this DIY gave an otherwise plain jacket a whole new lease of life. Gosh, I totally recommend hitting up your local craft shop (or check out these Etsy ones?) in search of adhesives – as it’s such a simple way of expressing yourself and looking mighty cute at the same time!
