Now, a few years since having to duct tape my jeans, I decided to take an old pair I like to wear and do a DIY distressed jean look! This time I won't even have to trip on some stairs to create the look!
The first thing to do is mark where you want to make the rips & tears. It's best to do that while you have the jeans on or you could end up with holes in places you may not want them.
Tear, Cut & Fade
I repeated steps 1 & 2 until I got the look I wanted, you can add more or less! I personally just like the subtle distressed look so I went lighter with the scissors and knife part.
I used an old pair of Forever 21 jeans that have lasted me a long time! but as you can see in the knee's they got a little faded so these worked perfectly for the project.
This can be great for Boyfriend style jeans too!
Hope this wasn't too confusing!
