@patchyalater's Customized Cut-Offs
Meaghan Mena, the owner and patch designer of Patch Ya Later, has mastered the art of patches. Her vintage-inspired designs are the nostalgic touch for the summer we all could use right now. We love patches as an easy way to make something your own and her latest customizable designs will take your personalization up a notch. Once you've got your adornments together, pour yourself a glass of wine and have yourself a little patch party.

@a.shirt.story's Sparkly Army Jacket
Sasha Iglehart, former fashion editor at Glamour, Elle, and Harper's Bazaar, started A Shirt Story by customizing gently worn mens shirting sourced from thrift stores. By replacing the hum-drum buttons with sparkly ones and chopping off the collars and hems, she's given new life to shirts that would have been otherwise overlooked, or even worse, discarded. Here, she shows us how you can do the same by breathing new life into an old army jacket with these simple swaps.

@trashtocouture's Scarf Halter Top
Laura Pifer started her blog Trash to Couture in an effort to show others that so many fashion items can easily be made at home, not mass-produced. From polished homemade espadrilles to impressive interchangeable bag straps, she proves that DIY projects can look just as good as manufactured pieces. In an easy 5-minute hack, she reworks a chunky chain necklace and a silk scarf into a throw-on-and-go summer top.
