1. DIY Blue and White Floral Print Jeans
Floral prints are very on-trend right now, but who wants to buy a completely new pair of floral jeans when you can just make them yourself? For this DIY, you’ll need a pair of white jeans, fabric markers in different blue tones, lace and cardboard. Use the cardboard to stop the ink from bleeding, and overlay the lace on top of the denim. Colour in the lace pattern with the marker, then remove the lace then you should have a beautiful flower print! Continue this all over the jeans for the perfect floral print. Feel free to mix it up and use whatever colour denim and marker you want, however dark ink on white denim looks the best.

3. DIY off the shoulder shirt
This DIY only takes less than one minute to complete, how easy is that? Take a loose white cotton shirt and do up the two middle buttons.
