Gram Slam!

Award-Winning Fashion at the 2017 Grammy Awards

I don’t know about you, but the awards shows make for a perfect Sunday night! As I was all cozied up watching the Grammy Awards, I couldn’t help but feel underwhelmed. I mean it’s the GRAMMYS for goodness sake. This is where the artists are supposed to go wild with their fashion choices, not play it safe!

Despite there being any truly outrageous looks, I did notice a few outfits that used hardware in super cool ways. Check them out!

Go Gaga for Hardware

Lady Gaga

Although I wouldn’t recommend wearing black latex underwear out in public, there could be a more reserved version of Lady Gaga’s Grammys look out there. From a DIYer’s standpoint, this look is totally doable with the items I’ve compiled from right here at Ohio Travel Bag.

Tell Me About It, Stud!

Tell me about it, Stud!

Nick Jonas looks like such a cool guy in this black studded jacket. I’m getting some Michael Jackson and John Travolta vibes from this slick look. Can you say Summer Lovin’?

What makes this jacket so eye-catching is the interested pattern in which the studs have been placed. That’s the great thing about bedazzling—you can customize anything with your own pattern!

At first glance this dress looks like it macrame from right out of the 70s. But if you look a little closer you’ll notice that while it is macrame, it has a unique spin with a bunch of metal rings holding everything together.Demi Dress

Although this look is a little too revealing for everyday wear, the concept is something that I’d like to see tried out in other forms. I’m thinking ahead to my next beach vacation and envisioning this as a super cool bathingsuit coverup.
