DIY Distressed Denim Shorts

vernabytes_distressedshorts1As mentioned on the previous post, here is how I made my distressed shorts. I’ve seen so many distressed shorts from different lookbooks, editorials and stores particularly high street brands, but I can’t seem to muster my courage (and money) to buy basically cut and destroyed shorts for thousands of pesos. I did a bit of research on different ways to distress some jeans and so far, this technique is my favorite.

What you’ll need:

old pair of jeans (mine were old Uniqlo jeans, look for jeans that don’t have much stretch to them)

2. cut two parallel lines based on how big you want the distressing to look like
