First, we brought you the trend and now we’re bringing you a super easy tutorial to achieve the look! This DIY is a great way to revamp your denim in the simplest way without spending a penny!

Here’s what you need to get started:

  • Pair of jeans
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Seam ripper
  • Fine Tip Sharpie

Step 1:

Turn your jeans inside out and remove the existing hem.

Step 2:

Measure how high you want the hem to be in the front and draw a line with your sharpie. I wanted mine to have a more dramatic cropped feel so I measured around 2.5 inches.

Step 3:

Use your seam ripper to remove the side seams all the way to where you drew your line.

Step 4:

Cut along the sides where you removed the seams and across the line you drew.

Step 5:

Use the seam ripper to fray the edges of your denim.

Step 6:

Throw ’em on and get going! Here is how the jeans look paired with several different shoes! They totally add a subtle edge to any look!
