Welcome back to the 90′s, friends! Distressed denim has made a serious comeback and my inner grunge groupie is loving it. I cannot get enough pairs of jeans with holes in them. I have had this pair of J.Crew ankle jeans (long on my short frame, go figure) for a while, so I thought I would try out a little DIY project and make my own distressed denim. To the tool shed I went for some scissors, cardboard cutters and sandpaper. Cut to (literally) a lot of blue jean shrapnel and a few moments later, I had a thrifty pair of rugged jeans, perfectly tailored to my height! No alterations needed. Are you as into this trend as I am?
TIP: If you try this at home, make sure you have washed your jeans first (shrinkage is a bitch). Also, when cutting holes in knees, BEND your knee first and THEN mark where you want to cut. Not while standing, unless you just want a hole above your knee when you sit. Have fun, be creative!
