Recycled Fashion 1980′s Edition: Splatter Paint

Share our Story

Remember the days of puffy paint and bedazzlers? Remember when splatter painted jeans were all the rage and we crimped our hair? Well designers remember and they’re recycling fashion from the 1980′s with splatter paint prints that are sure to bring back memories of childhood arts and crafts. Designer J. Mendel’s collection prominently features the splatter paint print which he calls ”exploded-floral-print silk cady” and comes in five different designs including dresses and pantsuits. Stunners Abigail Spencer, Leslie Mann, and Nina Dobrev are showing us how to wear the trend right.

How to Wear the Trend 

If you’re not big on print, or maybe you’re afraid you’ll look like a Jackson Pollock painting, there are more subtle ways to rock this trend including the use of accessories. Two-toned leather cuffs for example provide the look of paint splatter without the head-to-toe print. Of course leather straps for cuff making are even cooler when they’re vegetable enzyme cured, chrome free, and eco-friendly.

What’s Hot in Fashion: Leather

This fall leather is everywhere from dresses and skirts, to shirts and accessories. When it comes to leather anything goes.

Step 1: Cut or Wrap your Leather

So, to make your leather cuff bracelet you’ll have to decide what color and width of leather you’d like. We use 16″ leather straps. These allow for two single wrap bracelets or one double wrapped bracelet. This is because 16″ straps provides you with more options. WOMEN’s wrists average 7″; MEN can usually wear an 8″ bracelet. These are some of our favorite leather straps.

Step 2: Glue the Leather

The next step once the leather strap is cut is to glue the ends of the straps so that your cool leather clasp adheres to the strap.
