This DIY Fringe Jean tutorial will show you How To Fray Jeans Yourself In 5 Easy Steps. (See the process below, step by step). Get this trendy jean for a fraction of the cost!
This DIY is SUPER easy, but if you aren't up for it, no worries. You can buy these jeans for a cool $265 at Saks Fifth Ave! (not in my budget)
I recently re-bought these exact black jeans (pictured), before going on my honeymoon, so that I would have a fresh, solid black pair of jeans. As I am 28 years old, and bought these black jeans when I was 21. They are my favorite, so they are well worn, faded, and loved.
Even though I had some freshie black jeans, I wash't ready to part ways just yet. After seeing this distressed frayed denim look a few times, I knew these jeans would be the perfect pair to make my own with.
I am so happy with how they turned out, and even more happy that I got the same exact look as Saks 5th Ave, with out having to break the bank to do so! SCORE!
Step 1 : cut off the bottom hem of the jean leg.
Step 2: cut a slit about 3" up from the bottom of the jean leg.
Step 3: cut a 3" slit about every 1/2" around the entire bottom of the jean leg.
Step 4: Pull on/apart slits/frayed parts of jeans to create extra fray.
Step 5: Do all steps above on both legs and then wash jeans. Washing the jeans is what will give you that super frayed look that you want!
Viola! And your done! Super easy, right?!
I've probably already worn these jeans about 5 times, and every time been asked where I got them. :P so there you go!
