DIY: Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy Studded Shirt

I have been racking my brain trying to think of a fun DIY project and could think of nothing. Then while thinking about fall essentials I thought about plaid, *light bulb*, I randomly remembered earlier this year Kanye West sporting a Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy stud tartan shirt from the Spring/Summer 2010 collection. Plaid is great for fall and I thought this would be a fun project! Of course, the shirt was for a mens collection, but I definitely thing this look plays in well with a rocker chic look. Pair this with your favorite pair of jeans and some combat boots and you're good to go!

Here's what you need:

A plaid shirt, I snagged this Derek Heart flannel top from DD's Discounts for $10, you can also find it here. Another good idea is to find a plaid shirt from a thrift store.

Studs. I had studs already in my craft kit from earlier projects, you can snag these online here or on ebay. I used only one size that were fairly small, but you could mix up the sizes and shapes of the studs for a look that more closely resembles the Givenchy shirt.

A pair of pliers, for closing the studs. You can find these at your local craft store.

Directions: It's pretty simple you can map out a pattern or freestyle one. Put as many or as little studs on the shirt as you want. Once you're satisfied with the results, you're done!

Here's mine, I decided to keep it pretty simple. Total cost  = less than $20!

**Tip: Try on the shirt frequently while applying the studs. The designs will look slightly different on, due to the fit.

You can also shop these studded plaid options:
