I’ve had some old jeans that I was going to throw away that I thought I’d try distressing. It’s a trend that’s always in style- and EXPENSIVE! I’ve never bought ripped up jeans because they’re always so expensive or they look to calculated in their distressing. So I looked it up and chose a couple different methods I’ll show you so you can tear up your own jeans!
Think about natural areas you’d se distressing: knees, upper highs, pockets, belt loops, around the hem…
After you’re satisfied with the look, give them a wash. They will look MORE distressed after washing them.
Voila! Here’s what I love about distressed jeans. You can wear them laid back like this look. I have it here on my sister with a flannel and leather hightops.
I also rolled them up at different heights.
Then you can take it to a totally different level by pairing it with heels, a plain white tank and a black blazer.
It’s still classic and chic, with an edge!
I have another pair that I’m working on. I’d love to hear any other tips you have, too!
