DIY Inspiration: Embellished Shorts

What better way to get some extra mileage out of plain shorts from past seasons than with some pizzazz? Check out these inspiration pics for ideas to embellish your own shorts, then a few tips on how to DIY.

A few suggestions for embellishing your shorts:
1. Keep in mind how you're attaching your embellishment. If you can't sew, use a strong, permanent glue. You don't want to shed sequins wherever you sit.
2. If attaching studs, remember to fold the prongs over all the way so they won't scratch your skin. Placing them on the outside layer of pockets will prevent this issue.
3. Think about your activity patterns. Personally, anything lumpy or pointy on the back of shorts seems really uncomfortable to sit on! Also, if you tend to use your pockets, keep that in mind when embellishing.


  1. Ahhh this is inspiration! First of all, I'm pinning everything. Secondly, I want to make #2 and #4! I have some serious love going on for those shorts right now.

  2. AMAXING!!!!!! These are fantastic. I love the Blog de Mariah and Scent of Obsession versions. Can't wait to see what you come up with ;)
