Neon pink, bright green, sunshine yellow – jazzy fabric inserts on simple basics make for a really trendy look! Follow this tutorial to see how to add a pop of color to your garments.

We love this Balenciaga coat with neon pink!

This tutorial will show you how to widen your favorite trousers and sew in bright strips of fabric.

Don’t stop at just the trousers! The graphic, angled, pink insert immediately makes this sexy dress an eye-catcher. And green pocket flaps and sleeves make this otherwise boring blazer rock!

Happy DIYing!

    Montres Breitling ont gagné beaucoup de popularité et la crédibilité dans l’industrie du morceau de temps au cours des dernières années de nombreux, parce que la marque fournit toujours montres classiques subtilement aux consommateurs. Montres Breitling a d’abord été préférés par seule classe élite et pilote, mais avec le passage du temps Breitling sculpté un nom dans le monde à force de design de qualité, et magnifique perspectives des morceaux de temps. Il fut un temps où même pas un seul horloger a eu le courage de répliquer la Breitling parce que la conception et les caractéristiques de la montre étaient beaucoup trop difficile à reproduire, des ensembles de compétences ont été nécessaires pour fabriquer l’imitation de la marque, mais maintenant Breitling répliques de montres sont couramment vendu dans les rues.
