Styling DIY epaulettes

I made removable epaulettes a year ago after looking for something similar in both online and brick’n’mortar shops with no effect. They are made from rigid felt decorated with vintage buttons and chains.

I equipped epaulettes with big safety pins so it is easy to pin them both to summer shirt and a thick winter coat. The pins did their job, I spent whole day in Rome driving a scooter with breathtaking speed of 45km per hour and they didn’t move even a bit! ;)

FI matched handmade epaulettes with melange grey coat with black leather-like collar from Bershka. I am wearing long, soft grey sweater from Primark, Berlin and black skirt & leggins.

On my feet you can see my favourite boots with fringes – they are warm, comfortable and boho-style – all I need for weekend trips! Purple bag visible on the photo below (taken at Plaza di Spagna – Spanish Squarein Rome) comes from Deichmann and beanie cap is H&M.
