Over the weekend we had a bit of a creative buzz which took us all the way back to our high school & college days! Back then we used to distress and rip our own jeans – my brother and I even had a little side hustle doing it for other people! It’s been a few years but the same techniques still worked. Watch the clips below to see how to get started on a basic ripped jean look!
MARK WHERE YOU WANT TO RIP
CUT OUT MAJOR HOLES & SLITS
PLACE A MAGAZINE UNDER JEANS WHERE YOU WANT TO CUT. THIS PROTECTS THE BACKSIDE OF YOUR JEANS & YOUR TABLE!
USE TWEEZERS TO ADD FRAYED DETAIL. PULL THE DENIM & LEAVE THE ELASTIC BEHIND.
ADD DETAIL TO POCKET EDGES USING A RAZOR & TWEEZERS.
FOR A WASHED OUT DENIM LOOK, RUB YOUR JEANS WITH SAND PAPER OR EVEN A PIECE OF CHALK ROCK UNTIL THE FIBERS START TO WEAR DOWN.
** Lol please excuse my nephew in the background! We are a full time Mommy & Aunty combo team. #ParentingWhileWorking Lmao!
THE MORE YOU WEAR & WASH YOUR JEANS THE MORE CHARACTER THEY WILL DEVELOP!
