I decided to salvage a pair of old jeans that still fit but I no longer wear by getting a lil’ crafty. Literally all I did was Google “How to make distressed boyfriend jeans” and went from there. The only measurement I made was 16″ from the waist – to start off with, then cut shorter to my chosen length – and the use of the ruler was for an even line around the legs. There’s really no wrong way to DIY the distressed parts, but I did Google image search for ideas as I am a visual learner that owns a pair of scissors.
This outfit was neither planned nor looked at in a mirror prior to shooting but I have to admit, I really like how it turned out. The top says “let’s dress like a man” and the bottom says “show off the girl legs.” These boyfriend shorts are the happy medium in-between my torso & stems. Shop similar below:
