FLORAL FIX + DIY 501 ORIGINAL FIT JEANS

March 29, 2013







501 Original fit jeans via Levi's | Lovers + Friends moto jacket and top { similar here } | Zara pumps | BCBG clutch - old { love this option here } | Silver claw bracelet, cross bracelet via Jewelinks 




A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to parter with Levi's and Lookbook.nu to style a pair of 501 original fitting jeans (see post HERE). Well, today's post is all about DIY + self-expression, basically how I would customize a pair of 501s to make them my own. 

If you read my blog on regular basis, the answer is quite simple: I love my denim a bit distressed! My perfect pair is well-worn, whiskered and perfectly shredded. To achieve this look, I used a cutting board and an X-Acto knife. Sliding a cutting board inside the leg of the jeans is a great way to prevent slashing the other side and/or prevent any damage to the surface you are working on! Once I decided on the rip placements, I used an X-acto knife to create a few slashed clusters. I started slashing horizontally and made sure to create rips in varying length and depth for better texture. Finally, I threw the jeans into a dryer for about 20 minutes to reveal the treads and get that perfectly shredded look.




Keep on smiling,
Love,
Annabelle
