What you need:
Goorin Francis Fratelli Fedora
Leather
Screw on studs
Leather punch
Scissors

Supplies (2)

What to do:

Step One: Measure the circumference of the hat and cut two strips of leather that when overlapped an inch on each end will fit snuggly around the brim.

Step1 (2)

Step Two: Using the leather punch, create two rows of holes along the leather strip.

Step2 (2)

Step Three: Screw in each stud by pushing the back through the hole and screwing on the top.

Step3 (2)

Step Four: Connect the two ends of the strip by doubling up the leather, punching holes through both ends.

Step4 (2)

Step Five: Take the final band and put on your hat. If you wish to make the band permanent, attach it with a couple dabs of glue. Done!

What inspired Adriana’s Look:
I tend to gravitate more towards cozy looks during the colder months, and this AEO sweater is just perfect to throw on over my favorite pair of leggings and mixed with a chic scarf. The pretty pattern and comfy knit make it the perfect winter staple, so ideal for a day of running errands, grabbing coffee with friends, or staying warm indoors working on my blog. I’m definitely planning to wear this sweater all winter long, and can’t wait to style it a few different ways. IMG_3721
