Its a tale as old as time “Why would anyone want to wear jeans with holes in them”? Truth be told nobody really knows why, but they do look cool and give a laid back edgy look. Going into summer light wash denim and white denim are always key items but this year we are seeing more and more distressed denim looks on these light washes. In my always complicated hunt for specific things I decided to just distress my own pair of white denim.
Distressing is so simple it doesn’t need a “DIY”.
1)Simply put the jeans on,
2)Take a pen and mark the spots you want to make holes with
3) Remove the jeans, put a magazine in the leg hole
4) Carefully take a knife and make very small holes where you want the rips to be
5) Using a cheese grader (A Pedi egg works well too) get abrasive with the jeans in a fast grading motion.
I really love this effortless laid back look and now that I’m about to graduate college and have a real summer, I need more of that in my life!
