All of our favourite denim brands; Levis, Diesel and G- Star to name a few are really getting into the spirit of vintage and festival fashion and how to make your jeans look scruffy and well worn. You have two main options where achieving the look is concerned – you can distress the jeans yourself or buy designer threads that have already been treated to look patchy, worn out, faded and scruffy.
Ripping your own Distressed Jeans
If you can spare the time and have some sewing skills you can destroy your jeans yourself in five easy steps:-
- You need a well fitting pair of washed out jeans from a charity shop, sandpaper, sponge, cheese grater, bleach, scissors, needle and thread.
- Use the cheese grater to make holes by rubbing it on your jeans – it won’t take long with an old pair of jeans.
- Apply a little bit of bleach onto the sponge and rub carefully around the holes to make them look even more distressed – don’t forget to wear rubber gloves.
- Sandpaper is good to get that gentle worn look on pockets and knees.
- Use the scissors to cut rips out at the knees or where ever you would like then to be – If you don’t want it to rip too much sew around the rip preventing it from spreading more. If you want your jeans to rip naturally just don’t bother with the sewing.
