DIY | LACE UP VELVET CAMI

Combing two very popular trends this season, I’ve taken lace up details and velvet and placed it all into one great DIY. I love that this top takes on a simple cami/slip shape. By adding the lace up detail, the top transforms into a more elevated and sexy number. I think velvet is a great material that looks expensive and gives off a very luxurious aura, its perfect for dressing up any basic outfit! Creating it as I did, I made it so that the top can be worn in two ways, forwards and backwards. You can choose between having the plunging neckline in the front or having it on the back. A super fun way to add more we arability to your clothes! As shown, I’ve styled it with the higher square neckline for a more conservative daytime look, and also how turning the top around can instantly elevate everything to a sexier going out look.

If you don’t feel like creating this top from scratch you can always modify an existing v-neck cami and add in the lace up detailing. The disadvantage of doing so is that you won’t be able to wear it in the two different ways as mentioned above, but feel free to modify existing clothing items with the lace up trend as it is still a hot item this season! Happy DIY-ing!
