DIY: Black Swan Inspired Ballet Socks

On this weeks episode of VainGlorious we talked about how the movie Black Swan has inspired a fashion trend that taking over America (<– Yes! I’m a little dramatic). I’m a fan of the ballerina trend, but tutu’s look a hot mess on me. Tutu = Hot on Carrie Bradshaw, Not on Kristen Turner.

This project is very easy and it allows you to incorporate the ballerina trend into my wardrobe without having to wear a tutu.

Materials: Mini Socks (I got these from Target fr $3), Ribbon, Elastic, Needle & Thread and Scissors

First, take about an inch of the elastic form it into a circle and hand stitch the circle to the back of the mini sock. Then, slide the ribbon through the circle.

Wear it! The great thing about about this project is that you can remove and change the laces. You can change the laces to match the flats you wish to wear them with. Go ahead and try it! Get your Black Swan on!!

    • Yes you’re right! Maybe the title is misleading. They are intended to be worn as sock with your favorite flats. I changed the title just to be a little clearer! xoxo
