ALL IN THE DETAILS: Vicious Stitches

Nothing says summer quite like a summer fling, and nothing says August quite like the end of said fling. Breakups are hard, but they don’t always have to hurt. More often than not they’re a great opportunity for self reflection and discovery. After all, queens and kings don’t have time to dwell on the silliness that comes with all the ex-drama. As this Fashionista puts it: “words hurt until they don’t.”

This insanely classic yet cool look is inspired by that very idea. Exstitches is a project that features the parting words of ex-boyfriends and girlfriends boldly embroidered on the breast of a seemingly simple cotton tee. This tongue-in-cheek detail is the perfect sassy flare to any classic look. Adding even more to this look, this black skirt and white shirt combo are given a chic, punk vibe when paired with this chunky chain necklace and bold clutch. For those of us that can’t splurge for a Chanel bag, there are plenty of college friendly alternatives online like this one! Additionally, don’t be afraid to dig around superstores like WalMart for accessories either. This adorable multi-chain necklace was found for under ten dollars!

How To: If for some reason, none of Exstitches designs are doing it for you, grab your favorite cheap shirt, some embroidery thread and a needle and go to town. It’s so incredibly simple and makes a big impact! If that seems like a bit much for you, you can always take your classic skirt and shirt combo to the next level with some grunge worthy accessories and a bold clutch. Enjoy breaking hearts!
