2 Ways To Dress Up A Collared Shirt
- This season, designers are adding flair to traditional collared shirts, and in a few easy steps, you can take your old button-downs to the next level.
For a stamped collar, pick out three shades of fabric paint that look fun together. Of course you’ll need a collared shirt and lastly, you’ll need your trusty number 2’s. Yes, grab box of pencils; you’ll use the eraser as a polka dot stamp.
Lay the shirt front-side up to reveal the top of the collar. Then shake up your fabric paint, pour out a small amount and begin the process of dabbing your eraser and stamping dots on the collar.
- Once you have enough polka dots in one color, switch to the other shades. Make sure you use a new pencil with each color. Side note: you don’t want to be heavy handed with the paint either; if you have too much on your eraser, blot excess paint on a napkin.
After dipping, blotting and stamping to your liking, all you have to do is let the paint dry before wearing your fun new shirt.
For more of a rock n’ roll vibe, grab a mixed pack of metal studs from the craft store. Go for a variety of shapes and finishes.
