DIY Distressed Boyfriend Jeans

I always want to try and pull off the boyfriend style jeans but for girls with curves if you don't find the right pair they can make you look well.....huge. But not to worry I found a solution which also happens to be super cheap so ya know it's just awesome and whatever. I figured out that boot cut jeans hug your thighs to make them look smaller but will allow you to do the cute roll and will be baggy on your calves. Here's what I did to get the look.
For this DIY you'll need:
An old pair of boot cut jeans (I got mine at the thrift store)
A pair of scissors
A pair of tweezers
 1. ^^^To distress your jeans take a pair of scissors and cut a horizontal line wherever you want the distressing to be.
 2. ^^^^ Then cut another line in between the two horizontal lines.
 3. ^^^^^ Take your tweezers and pull the blue vertical threads out of the jeans.
 4. ^^^^^ Do this until only the white horizontal threads are exposed. Continue to do this distressing anywhere else on the jeans that you like. And if you're feeling real spicy rip holes in the knees! Don't forget to tightly roll up the bottom of your jeans!


  1. Love this method, I do it to all my jeans! Love your blog and I think you are just darling.

  2. Great idea! I love the boyfriend look too, but I have yet to find a pair that doesn't give me saggy butt syndrome. I'll definitely have to give this DIY a go!


  3. These are adorable! Love how they turned out.

  4. OMG I have been wanting to distress a pair of straight leg denim for a while and couldn't find the right method. This is awesome, thanks for sharing!!

  5. @Kendrayay I'm so glad you like it Kendra!!

  6. Yes! I've been dying to try the distressed denim trend but I haven't been able to find a tutorial on how to do it. Thanks!

  8. <3 it !! Just wish finding jeans to do this too at the thrift store was as easy !!

  10. This is such a great idea! Why pay $40 for jeans that have holes in them? That would just be CRAZZZY. Thanks for the inspiration, chica!
