Over the past weeks I have caught myself obsessing about brand prints quite a lot. Doubtlessly, the classics – YSL and Céline – have intrigued me the most. However, I am most definitely not willing to spend 100$ or more on such a simple piece of clothing. While searching various online stores for the perfect knock-off, it dawned on me: Why not make this a happy little DIY project?

What you’ll need:

  • A simple white tee or tank (I chose an old Primark tank)
  • Black waterproof textile color (available at your local craft store)
  • A paint brush
  • Baking sheets
  • Optional: Scissors, paper, ruler, pencil (for mapping out the shape)

It’s no secret that every girl owns a bunch of plain old white tees and tanks – why not take advantage of that instead of hustling to the nearest H&M? (And yes, we all have our famous “pile of shame” – clothes that are being deliberately neglected, ignored and stuffed into the back of our closets.) To make a long story short: I went to the store, grabbed some textile colors, googled the YSL logo and got to painting. It’s as easy as that. In order to ensure a long lasting color, I ironed the tank for a couple of minutes – with a baking sheet in between. Et voilà! What it looked like after the first coat:


If you’re interested in a step-by-step (or non-free-handed) tutorial, simply type “DIY YSL” into Youtube – there’s a million instructions to choose from.

Take care & read you soon – xoxo,
