Spliced T-Shirts Let You DIY The Grunge Look In The Best Way
Spliced T-shirts are the badass new DIY trend that'll have you ringing in the new year in style.
T-shirt DIYs are not new by any means. Whether you're refashioning an oversized tee with a pair of shears, creating your very own graphic tee with a photo transfer, or even decking a vintage tee with patches and pins, there is a multitude of ways to make a tee your own.
However, the newest DIY tee trend we'll be bringing into 2017 is pretty freaking amazing: spliced T-shirts. And let's just say, the opportunities are endless. While they may seem to be the next big trend to buy, with retailers like River Island and Topshop jumping on the trend, trust us — they're just as easy to DIY.
All you'll need are two T-shirts to, well, splice. Pick out two tees that blend well together or totally clash—both will make a statement, we promise. Then grab a needle and thread or sewing machine to combine the two shirts down the middle. The easiest way to connect the two? Pin the shirts in place, and sew the two together from there.
This look screams for a bit of grunge-inspired accessorizing — whether that be unclean threading lines, singeing, patches, or pins—feel free to deck it out as you please.
Of course, if you're not down to DIY or pay through-the-roof for something designer, there are plenty of retailers that offer ways to rock the spliced trend.
Shops like Jaded London (left) and River Island (right) prove that the basic spliced tee is everything we could ask for — comfy and cool. Rock it with a pair of jeans and bold accessories. Go big or go home, right?
There's nothing comfier than an oversized sweatshirt in the winter — luckily, Topshop has us covered with their spliced hoodie.
Of course, you don't have to reserve the trend for tees. Leave it to brands like ASOS to design spliced tops that are fashion-forward and perfect for the office.
How will you be rocking the spliced trend?
