|Black Faux Suede Lace, Western Style Oval Conchos|
If you want to keep it as simple as possible, these two items are all you really need, but if you want a concho belt that more closely resembles the original designs, you can purchase a skinny leather belt in place of the suede lace that I have. What I like about this one though is that it's highly adjustable and I can use it for anything else that I want to put ornaments on. The oval conchos I have here came in assorted colors (nickel, brass, copper) with the same matte finish, which I prefer over the shiny kind because it provides a more antique look. Perhaps the best thing about this DIY is that it only cost me about $10!
This next step is quite self-explanatory and you probably already guessed it: insert a few strands into the concho slots after measuring how long you want the belt to be. Make sure to leave some length so you can easily tie it around your waist.
And voila - you've got yourself a chic modern-day concho belt! I also made one with a black floppy hat, which I styled here!
Here's just one of the many outfits I came up with, but you can pretty much wear it with any look. I think it's a fun way to add a bohemian touch to a simple ensemble, and it's super easy to make. I hope you enjoyed this quick tutorial, and I'll catch you in my next one!
