ROPE KNOT BELT (DIY)

rope knot belt diy cintura

It's getting warmer here, SO warmer and I was not prepared.
I mean, dear weather, when should I wear my diy overcoat cape? Or my light jackets?
I can't move from winter coat to t-shirt in about two days!
Luckily there is something I can wear every time I want: my belts.
Aaand, nothing better then a rope belt for Spring-Summer seasons, with that navy look
we all love so much because it reminds us to holiday times.
It is very very easy to make and it matches everything you have in your closet. Yay!

Inizia a fare caldo qui, MOLTO caldo, ed io non ero preparata.
Io dico, caro tempo, quando dovrei indossare, secondo te, il mio soprabito diy? O le giacche leggere?
Non posso passare dal piumino invernale alle magliette in due giorni!
Per fortuna c'è qualcosa che posso indossare ogni volta che voglio: le cinture.
E...niente di meglio che una bella cintura in corda, perfetta per la Primavera e l'Estate,
con quel look marinaresco che ci piace tanto perché ci ricorda le vacanze.
Facilissima da realizzare, si abbina benissimo a qualsiasi cosa abbiate nell'armadio. Yee!

- Rope (measure your waist and add about 15 cm/5,9 in). // Corda (misurate la vostra vita ed 
aggiungete circa 15 cm).

4)

  3. Elisa, nice belt and great DIY!
    I am not a big fan of belts - I never know how to wear them properly with my body type - but I do like to see them on the others. It suits you super well!
