This is the season of customisation.  From patches to embroidery, embellishment to pom poms, everything from denim to heels is anything but minimal.  Gucci inspired us with their Spring Summer 2017 catwalk show featuring trousers with embroidered text and patch covered jackets.  I can't get enough of the array of denim and leather jackets featuring beautiful Spring details.  What better way to add interest to a simple look?  

For me it was also a great excuse to whip out my paint brushes and hunt down a vintage jacket to get stuck in to my own project.  I went for simple wild roses and my initials on the back of this cropped biker but irises, daisies or butterflies would also work brilliantly.  Use acrylic paint and set when completely dry using a leather paint finisher (I used Angelus Brand Acrylic Finisher - Satin Gloss from Amazon).  

If you want to go for something a little more simple there are some brilliant patches available to buy which can be easily added to a washed out denim jacket or boyfit jeans.  Stradivarius have some amazing ones here.  Let me know if you have been up to any customisation projects and have any tips!
