Where’s the (D-I-) Y

I have moved on from the monochrome look albeit onto something even less adventurous. All black. However I love the 60s; the Beatles and the fashion and this is my workwear nod to it.

I am wearing my YSL pinstripe skirt (I’m calling it YSL as it still had the Y when I bought it), my zara neoprene jumper (altered by my own fair hands, see below) and my ferragammo python skin steel heels.

The zara jumper originally looked like this…

I altered it to make it look like this….

by sticking in velcro, the type that has a sticky back. First I folded under the excess jumper and made sure it wasn’t too long or too short.

Once I was happy that the correct amount of jumper was tucked under for the right length, I stuck in velcro in little pieces all the way round. Not taking in the side seams gives the jumper a more 60s sihouette. Perfect and couldn’t be simpler.
