DIY Party top

Hello DIY’ers! You may have already seen through Facebook, Twitter o Instagram, that I’m spending these holydays with my family in my beloved island, Dominican Republic. I didn’t want to pass these days without showing a DIY Party top to wear on New Year’s eve (or other parties) With a classic strap top you can give a touch of fun color or even transparent fabric at the back. In this case I used a sequined top and neon yellow silk to give a bold touch. Surprise everyone with a ‘POP’ of color for this great night!

You can give a very cool touch to any outfit only contrasting fabrics with strong color to your monochrome party top. In this case, I think the neon yellow contrastes beautifully with silver sequins… And I liked the longest back, like a tail … but you can make it shorter version or just the same lengh.
