D.I.Y Fashion on a budget

Unfortunately, being a student means your fashion money must be spent elsewhere, a very new and heart breaking experience for us clothes lovers. So, next time you’re google-ing your favourite celebs for inspiration on the latest trends, try getting creative with what you have instead of splashing out on a new style.

One look which I am particularly fond of is the edgy ‘suspender tights’.

However; tights get ladders, and once you’ve gone through your second pair it starts to get difficult to justify buying more.

So, through pure experimentation I discovered a way to create this look with minimum effort and very cost effective.

All you need is a long pair of Primark thigh socks (£1.50) and some black straps from a strapless bra. Simply tie the top to your underwear and hook the bottom to the top of your socks, easy.

Another good money saver is the denim shirt look.

Grab one of your Dads old shirts and some easy to use craft studs, such as these from Amazon (£2.59 for 10).

Attach the studs to the collar and pocket. I went a bit further and turned the shirt easy to do into a crop top, and very effective!
