Summer time is here and with the warmer weather I was finally able to wear this cute DIY shirred top! I wanted to create this sweet shirred bow top after seeing similar ones circling around on Instagram last season. The bow straps give the sweetest girly vibes and provides this top with a unique twist to your standard crop top. I’ve paired it with jeans and sneakers to edge it up a bit but I think it could also look pretty sweet with a high-waisted midi skirt. Definitely going to be making this DIY in other colours! I’m thinking white or maybe even yellow next? Let me know what color I should do next in the comments! Onwards with the tutorial…

DIY | TUBE TANK TOP

Worn with Zara belt, abercrombie shorts, rag & bone leather bag, DIY clasp necklace and DIY Gucci inspired sneakers

Inspired by the J’adior runway shoulders, the far set straps are popular with a nod to the 90s and help accentuate the decolletage; I wanted to create my version because as you all know, this girl can’t afford real Dior. Let’s DIY something similar with the help of an easy tube top-esque shape plus some carefully placed straps to achieve the exact same look! This is a pretty straight forward DIY that will add an incredibly versatile piece into the wardrobe. I love the contrasting straps as it helps with accentuating their unusual placement near the shoulders and opening up the chest area. Read on to make your own! It’s not difficult at all, you could even take a tube top and add your own straps to achieve the same effect if you don’t want to create it from scratch.

DIY | TIE UP CROP TOP

Worn with: Aritzia Babaton DEXTER Pants, Aldo Body Chain (similar), DIY Drop Circle Earrings, DIY Pearl Slidesย 

It’s already getting cooler out here in Canada but not so cold that I can’t get away with wearing a crop top still. Instead of pairing my crop tops with denim cutoffs, I like to pair crop tops in the fall with longer pants and throwing on a leather jacket. I was inspired by this top (similar) from Princess Polly and how Allegra Shaw styled it here with long pants and I just KNEW I had to have the tie style crop top in my wardrobe! It’s an easy dress up dress down style that is on trend and I can’t wait to wear it some more with layering some cute bralettes underneath. Read on to make your own!
