Cropped Frayed Jeans + Link Up


The other night I did something that I had never done before.  I took a pair of scissors and cut up a pair of jeans.  Those who know me, know I am not a DIYer, so the fact that I even attempted this made myself proud.  I have to admit, I was impressed with the finished product.  I had been wanting to add a pair of cropped, frayed hem jeans to my wardrobe for a couple of months now, but if you saw the amount of jeans that are in my closet, you would understand my hesitation to add another pair.  That's when I convinced myself that I could DIY them.  So I googled "how to cut and fray jeans" and in a half an hour I had myself a new pair!  I styled them with a button down and booties for a classic look, but can't wait for the warmer weather so I can wear them with flats (and not freeze).   Now, I am wondering what else I can DIY... I think I may have a new addiction!



 I used a pair of straight leg jeans (12" leg opening) so they would have a semi-flared look.  I also can't wait for them to get better over time, as washing them will make them even more frayed and tattered!  If you like the look, I linked some similar options below, or leave me a comment if you would like me to do a post on how I altered my jeans.

  3. What a great idea! I'm with you, I have so many jeans in my closet it's ridiculous, I don't want to keep buying jeans every time a new cut comes in vogue. Maybe I'll try this too. It looks great. Love your bag too!

  5. You did a great job fraying your jeans. They look so modern. I am dying over your booties and moto jacket and the way you tied that scarf like a men's tie. Thanks for the linkup, beautiful.
