1. Go short.
Get ready for summer by chopping off an old pair of jeans into a sassy pair of shorts.
2. Dot ‘em.
Grab your trusty bleach pen and have yourself a new pair of polka dot skinnies in less than 30 minutes!
3. Distress ‘em.
Slash up your denim with an Exacto knife and then add in your sharpie color of choice for a slightly chicer version of those favorite beat up High School jeans.
4. Paint ‘em.
A few tribal stripes gives basic jeans a bohemian edge.
5. Stud it.
Any denim jacket is way more badass with some studs thrown into the mix.
6. Jewel it.
Fancify that shirt collar with some sew-on jewels.
7. Bleach it.
A much more modern way to do “tie dye”.
8. Add some flair.
An old scarf and a few minutes with a sewing machine will give you an enviable new button up to show off
9. Don’t toss the legs.
After you chop a pair of jeans into shorts, use one of the legs to make yourself a fun clutch.
