STEP 1: The Shirt

Since striped shirts have been in vogue for the past few seasons it shouldn’t be too hard to find a red one in your local thrift store (or perhaps even in your closet).

STEP 2: The Hat

The striped hat is a bit more challenging – try looking for a white beanie at a thrift store and then covering it with red felt. You can make a pom pom by using a bit of red string and following this handy tutorial. Once you’ve made the pom simply thread it through the top of the beanie.
