Inspiration: Zippers

You have to be quite daring to upgrade something with a zipper because if you get it wrong it will turn out terrible, however if you get it right it will turn out quite spectacularly.

In my (humble) opinion, the zipper look is one I think can easily look "tacky" - but I'd take any item from the photos you posted above! Love to see what you end up making... =)

Zippers and studs are a couple of those weird things that are able to be edgy and chic at the same time. Love it!
