Here’s a denim DIY that gives a whole new level of boho-chic to floral printed jeans. The team over at P.S. I made this collected actual leaves and springy greenery to use as stamps. Simply collect your leaves, apply a layer of fabric paint with a brush or a sponge, and stamp as you wish. We’re loving this idea! See the full tutorial here.

Try These Techniques For Distressing Denim


Here in NYC, we’re slowly beginning to daydream about the days where we don’t have to layer on three pairs of tights to leave the house, and while we specialize in expert denim repair, our readers know we love a stylish gaping hole in the knee of our jeans once in a while, too.

A Pair & A Spare recently ran a great post detailing some of their denim DIY distress experiments, using materials like sandpaper, tweezers, and a cheese grater. Check out the results, and try some of them for yourself: Techniques For Distressing Denim.

DIY These Cut-Off Shorts For Summer


Nothing says summer like a pair of cut-off shorts that you can wear from the beach to brunch and beyond, but let’s face it: not everyone wants to drop their hard-earned money on designer jeans. If you’ve got a pair of cheap old jeans that are unloved in the back of your wardrobe, pull them out and find the nearest pair of scissors. Refinery29′s stylish staff experimented with 7 pairs of jeans and 7 different styles of diy cut-off shorts. We’re loving the wide leg cropped trend, among others. Which is your fav?

A Quick, Easy Denim Cut-Out Workshirt DIY


Denim workshirts are the all-purpose instant dash of cool in your closet, and there’s no better time to wear them than fall. But if you’re looking to put a twist on an already awesome classic, try this quick DIY cut-out  project.

Trace out style lines (whether you want to cut out a huge chunk as shown, or smaller slices) in chalk or by thread-basting, on your denim workshirt. Then, get a nice sharp pair of fabric scissors (we love Gingher), and slowly cut along your lines, removing the denim from your workspace.

…That’s it! How did yours turn out? Let us know on facebook!

DIY Denim Studded Collar: The Perfect Fall Accessory


Looking to add a little badass to your look this fall? A simple studded denim collar can zing up an outfit in a snap, whether worn free-floating with a low-neck top or as a faux-collar on a button-up shirt. The best part? You can make it yourself in about 25 minutes.

Step 1. Find an old denim shirt at your favorite thrift store, or your closet. Be sure the shirt’s collar is thick enough to hold studs without tearing.

Step 2. Carefully cut the collar away from the shirt as shown.

Step 3. Gather your studs and small-tipped round nose pliers.

Tip: shop Etsy for deals on studs and embellishments. I used 34 total—your count will depend on the desired look.

Step 4. Place your first stud on the collar. Use the sames to guide you.

Step 5. Push the prongs through the back of the fabric. Push fabric down on either side of the prongs using your pliers.

Step 6. Use your pliers to fold the stud prongs down and curl them into the fabric so they are secure.

Step 7. Repeat, and fill up your collar with studs!
