Fendi’s cropped cut-out sweater is the darling of the fashion world and it shows. It’s already graced the covers of not one, not two, but three fashion magazines this year…and we haven’t even got to February.

It all started with Elle UK’s January edition, with Rosie Huntington-Whiteley donning the red version of the sweater on the cover.

Then InStyle had Gwyneth Paltrow rocking the pink one.

Finally, Shailene Woodley wore it in white, in February’s American Elle.

Did we mention that the sweater also made appearances in W mag and Harper’s BazaarThat’s a whole lot of Fendi. There’s no denying that the look is pretty chic (if we do say so ourselves), but it is designer after all, so will no doubt cost a pretty penny. More power to you if you choose to splurge, but for those of us whose bank accounts would never forgive us for spending a month’s rent on a sweater, here’s a more economical option, inspired by the original.

WHAT YOU NEED

  • Sweater (this one is from Topshop)
  • Scissors
  • Bias tape
  • Sewing machine

WHAT YOU DO

  1. Cut a panel out of the sweater. Make sure the back is still connected at the centre.
  2. Sew bias tape all around the opening that you just cut out. This is to prevent the sweater from fraying.
  3. Try the sweater on and if the band is too loose, cut vertically down the front and adjust as necessary. Sew back together.
  4. Sew elastic to the inside of the hem for a tighter fit. Make sure to stretch the elastic as you are sewing.
  5. Try to get on the cover of a national women’s magazine.
