DIY Distressed Denim

I have been asked so many times where I have gotten my distressed jeans, and when I say I distressed them myself, people are like WHAT!? 
It's seriously the easiest thing ever. Here is how I do it.
You'll need:
One serrated steak knife (that sounds so creepy haha)
One hard cover book (Make sure it's a book you don't mind if it gets a bit damaged) 
& One pair of jeans (Avoid stretchy denim)
First, place the book in the jeans so that when you distress you won't be distressing the back side of your jeans. 
Then take your serrated steak knife and do like a back and forth movement, not too hard and not too soft. It all just depends how distressed and how intense you want the holes and what not. 
Move the book wherever you distress! 
If you guys have any questions let me know. 
It's very simple. You'll be a pro distresser before you know it. ;)
Good luck!

For these jeans I went for the more intense look.
And you can pair them with a patterned legging underneath :)


  1. I am pinning these right now :) And doing my own pair today!
