People Are Upcycling Their 15c Coles Bags Into Wearable Fashion!

People Are Upcycling Their 15c Coles Bags Into Wearable Fashion!


Isolation has led people to do some really questionable things and this latest craze of turning Coles bags into wearable fashion is no exception.

The new TikTok trend features wanna-be designers turning plastic into fashion using the audio of the viral “Three dollars at Coles” TikTok trend as it’s back ground tune.

First up we have this two piece design featuring a vest and pant combo from an innovative TikTok designer. This Coles bag creation is perfect as we head into the cooler months. It’s easy to layer and is form-fitting and flattering. We just love that it comes with a matching headband too!

Next up is a flowy Coles number featuring a strapless look to really accentuate the shoulders. We love how it cinches in beautifully at the waist before billowing out into a skirt. So fun! Ten points for the use of ties at the waistline as well as providing a matching scrunchie and bag too. The total look!

Lastly is a resort-wear look perfect for those beach days. Here the creative TikTok designer has upcycled the Coles bag into a halter-neck bikini top and sarong-inspired mini. Pair with some espadrilles and you’re ready for that Euro summer!
