STYLE HACK | FRINGE JEANS (DIY)

The truth is, just as you think you have all jean shapes covered, a new kid comes on the block.....

Whilst I'm all in favour of of a rotational capsule wardrobe, sometimes flipping the style coin throws something fresh into the equation.

For the denim obsessed (basically my uniform), the new season is awash with patched, frayed and fringed jeans, and I don't mind admitting that I've been mentally tormenting myself over these 3 x 1 crop fringe jeans. But at over £200, I'm in no doubt that this is not strictly an investment buy.

All that said, cue a rainy afternoon, old jeans, scissors, a stitch unpicker, and Erica from Honestly WTF tutorial post, and I'm now feeling seriously smug, that I have delicately hacked my hems into almost Instagram worthy denim threads.

Pairing these blue fringed beauties with the essential pieces of kit....
a billowy white shirt, slouchily tucked in, or an oversized knotted tee, will seal this DIY deal.

  4. Ooh, lovely! Just cut off a pair of (£1 charity shopped) turn up jeans that had too much turn up, they would've been ideal for this.

    1. Oh no! Can you search out another pair and have a go? especially if you can get them for a £1!...If they turn out to be a disaster then it's not the end of the world...I say try it anyway!
