It should be no surprise that denim is the favorite item of clothing worn across the world. There's not a person alive that doesn't own a pair of jeans, a jean jacket or another denim piece that has been invented over the years; and each year denim reinvents itself & gives us a new trend to purchase or make. Yes, make, hence my D.I.Y. (do it yourself) distressed
A result of a last minute sale purchase, These jeans shorts were once a pair of jeans that I never really grew to love. The fit was off & I rarely pulled these out of the closet, so when it came time for me to jump on the ripped jeans bandwagon, I decided to make my own instead of pay $70.00 for a new pair of distressed denim shorts. I love a good fashion project so, this style feat was right up my alley. If you search online there are hundreds of D.I.Y. distressed denim tutorials but I used this one HERE.
If you are up for the challenge, & you're looking to save some money I recommend you try this DIY ripped jeans project. I love my new made shorts because they go with heels (as seen above) or a great flat on casual days & as much as I adore skirts in the summer, sometimes jeans shorts are just as easy and fashionable.
