Style Bloggers Rock DIY Denim Jackets For Mango


What happens when top style bloggers are brought together from all over the world in order to convene in sunny Ibiza for a week?  You better expect a fun denim DIY project in there, all thanks to fashion retail giant Mango.  Somewhere between drooling over their major swag bag of Mango clothing and MANGO TOUCH jewelry; recharging via morning yoga and getting a fabulous hotel massage, the gals did roll up their proverbial sleeves for a major denim jacket DIY session.  Check out their jeans jacket creations on the Mango blog, or shop a few cute denim jackets (even a drool-worthy moto jeans jacket) we picked for you!

How To Make Your Jeans More “Vintage” Looking


Looking for a few ways to add some character to your favorite pair of jeans? While some of us prefer them crisp and new, with a gradual wear process and a fray here’n'there, sometimes it feels good to pull on a pair of messed up denim jeans that are pure rock’n'roll, and look like they’ve been to hell and back on your backside. If that rings a bell, you’ll love these tips for distressing and vintage-ifying your own jeans, courtesy of Real Vintage Jeans.

denim-diy-vintage-distress-tips

 

Cut Them Up


If you are looking for the swiss cheese effect, then the best place to start is with razor or utility knife.  Both of these tools are sharp enough to cut, but they are also easy to control so you won’t accidentally go overboard.   The cutting process is simple enough, but you’ll need to fray the cuts so they look more authentic.  Do this by gently rubbing them with a coarse piece of sandpaper.  You can also use this strategy to create more natural looking holes without actually cutting the denim.

 

Wear Them Down


In order to achieve the natural aged look you’ll need to speed up time by using sandpaper or a cheese grater.  Start with the knees and work your way up to the thighs.  It is important to work on each leg a little bit at a time to avoid an unbalanced look.  Once you start seeing the white of the threads you should be gentle since unintended tears can occur.

 

Bleach Bomb


This is where most people ruin there hard work.  Unless you are looking for an acid washed effect then you have to be careful with how much bleach you use.  Always start conservative by adding just a capful to your wash after the water has filled up.  Each pair of jeans will react differently and you won’t know what to expect until after a couple of wash cycles.  If you want to spot treat them, apply a mild solution of bleach and water with a spray bottle before putting them in the machine.  Use the “mist spray” setting for an even application.

 

Fray the Edges


In order to get the most authentic look, you will have to work on fraying the edges of your jeans.  This includes the waistband, pocket area, and leg cuffs.  Once again sandpaper is your best friend.  Sometimes it is easier to attach a large piece of sandpaper to a board or wall and run these edges over the surface.  This lets you cover more ground in a shorter amount of time.

 

Add Some Mileage


While you can spend hours trying to vintage your jeans, one of the most effective things you can do is simply wear and wash them repeatedly.  Obviously you want them to look good before you take them out on the town, but there are plenty of opportunities to add some miles to them without making public appearances.  You can wear them while doing household chores, light construction, and even when you are walking the dog.  Just make sure you don’t do any activities like painting that may stain them forever.

Denim Rebels Reign in Stockholm Magazine


It’s the theme that never gets old! Teenage punks lounging in decrepit buildings wearing cool denim and loose knits, defining a new era while representing the past. This moody editorial from Stockholm Magazine Spring 2011 (which, by the way, digitally features a fresh approach to the standard Flash page-turning standard) was shot by photographer Hasse Nielsen. We love the contour-seam denim dress and funky legwarmers. While the feeling is a bit forced, the theatrics are welcome.
