Embellished

Honestly WTF have made the common denim shirt even better, we're lusting after it like there is no tomorrow! Here is their step by step guide to get this look.

1) For shank style buttons, start by cutting off the backs with a pair of flush cutters. Vintage buttons are most commonly made of lightweight metal and plastic so cutting off the shanks is very easy. For embellished collars, make sure there are two sets of embellishments so that the design is symmetrical. 2) Squeeze a dollop of Jewel-It washable glue onto a wooden spoon or small plastic container. Jewel-It is the best bonding agent when it comes to glueing hard-to-hold jewels and embellishments onto fabrics. Use a toothpick to dab glue onto the back of a button, rhinestone, or pearl. 3) Position the embellishment on the tip of the collar and work outwards. Note that the glue does not set right away and takes quite a while to dry so be careful not to nudge the pieces around too much. 4) Repeat the same design on the other collar tip and that’s it, you’re done! Allow to dry at least 24 hours before handling or wearing and even though clothing can be washed after using Jewel-It, I would recommend dry cleaning the shirt only.
