Now I’ll be the first to admit, I have a pretty plain and basic style sometimes. I had to force myself to purchase these jeans. Don’t get me wrong, I love them! I just don’t like the idea of knowing that I probably won’t wear them too often. So if you’re like myself and still want to try this trend I’ve listed a few ways below to make your old jeans new and trendy!
- Ultra-wide legs – Take a pair of your old flare leg jeans and cut them 2 inches below your knee. After, throw them in the washer and dryer to create a rigged seam. Simple!
- Patchwork – If you’re feeling really crafty take two pairs of old jeans. Use one pair for the base and one pair to chop! Cut your patches and sew a running stitch along the perimeter of the patch at about a quarter-inch distance from the border. Iron the patches out and you are done!
- Embellishments – Visit your local Craft store to choose the embellishments. Once you have them picked out, create a layout of how you would like them then place a hot glue on the area of your choice and attach the jewels or studs.
- Cheap and Easy Distressing – This step is by far the easiest. Just cut slits in your jeans. Once you have washed and dried them a few times they’ll be perfectly distressed!
