DIY in 5: The Green Army Shirt

In DIY, DIY in 5, Men's Shirts, Tops, Trends on September 21, 2010 by Naoko Takano

Roll up the sleeves and add a cluster of military-style gold and bronze pins, and it’s good to go!

Yesterday I posted some ideas how to style it, today I’m going to DIY it.  It’s DIY in 5minutes, that is.  The easiest, quickest ways to take a piece from blah to fab and update it to current trends.

Well, this time it’s not really a DIY so much as it just entails finding a button-down shirt in a lovely army olive green color (doesn’t so much matter the size, but you can always re-size it using this method).

My pins: XX off a pair of Genetic Denim jeans, 2 sparkly pins + ribbon pin from Delia’s like 10 years ago, Honor Society pin from high school (LOL!)

You can, by the way, get some great pins on Ebay, Etsy, thrift stores, or other trendy retailers. You can also make your own out of grosgrain ribbon and a coin charm jewelry finding!  I’ve added some of my picks below:

This is the newest menswear layering piece for Fall that truly looks ohsofresh on a woman.

What do all of you think?  Will you too be looking for an Army Shirt to work into your wardrobe?
