I’m a bit of a TV addict (who else is a Netflix & Chill-er??) but when I watch, it’s not just for entertainment, it’s also for inspiration! I’m constantly getting outfit ideas from classic movies and TV series and this project is inspired by one of my faves...RIVERDALE! I’m obsessed with Betty’s embellished collars so I had to make one of my own. I snagged all my beads and rhinestones from JOANN to help get my DIY off the ground.
I opened all the bags of rhinestones to pull out the right stone sizes and colors to match Betty’s collar. Some round clear stones mixed with some pink ones were going to do the trick.
I had my computer open the entire time using the images I found of the collared top to guide me in my rhinestone and bead placement!
Once I knew where everything was going to go, I began stitching the clear stones to the collar first. I threaded my needle with white thread, tied a knot at one end and went in and out of the holes in the rhinestones securing them to the collar.
I began to add the pink stones and silver bugle beads next until my collar was matching Betty’s!
Wanting to really match my Riverdale fave, I added a thin pink sweater on top of my blouse to complete the look.
I feel so studious, yet chic in this combo!
Betty isn’t the only embellished collar-wearer!
Veronica has killed this look as well.
An easy adjustment to make your look more Veronica chic, DIY a pearl necklace to lie right below the collar!
Since Veronica has a darker vibe, a mulberry-colored sweater was put on to really channel her aesthetic.
I feel like I totally belong in Riverdale!
Whether you’re a Betty or a Veronica...
