DIY A Chic Denim Wrapped Bangle


P.S. – I made this… has a new idea for your discarded denim scraps. It’s quick and creative, and ends up looking super chic. Cut your denim into strips—ideally, denim in different washes and colors, and wrap them around a bangle bracelet. Use your chain to wrap around the bracelet and secure the denim in place.

Make Your Jeans Your Own: Styling, Distressing, Cuffing & More


The thing that sets the most stylish people apart from the rest is not that they have access to some exclusive, unique source of clothing no one else does. It’s that they take the same products everyone else buys and they make it their own. With jeans, this is especially versatile, from distressing to cuffing and beyond.

Below are a few ways you can make your jeans your own this fall.

1. DIY distress your jeans. Grab a pair of scissors, some sand paper, and go to town on your favorite jeans to create a look that’s vintage and chic. Check out our post on distressing denim for more ideas.

2. Mix and match denim with your favorite statement accessories, like killer shoes or a bold metallic clutch. Hint: Done correctly, this makes a pair of jeans acceptable in the night life realm.

3. Cuff them up. Whether you prefer a wide thick cuff or a skinny rolled cuff, when you adjust hemlines, the game changes. The a-symmetrical cuffing job above is a tomboyish statement we love (especially when worn with heels). Check out our video on three ways to cuff jeans, below.

Need your jeans dyed, tailored, or cut into the perfect pair of cut-off shorts? (We wear ours all year ’round with a pair of tights!) Send them in to Denim Therapy and we’ll work magic with out expert repair and customization services.

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!

Denim DIY: Lace Stencil On Earnest Sewn Jeans


We’re excited to show you the results of our Earnest Sewn denim challenge DIY! After some experimenting, we finally came up with the idea to stencil a pattern using fabric paint and lace (works best with thick, synthetic lace in case you want to try). We added a sophisticated tuxedo stripe down the side of each leg, and  we think they’re totally chic! What do you think?
