All Natural! Denim DIY Floral Printed Jeans

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.

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.
