DIY: Distressed Denim Jacket 

Distressed denim jackets have become a huge fashion trend recently, but this also means that they can be a bit pricey. For today’s DIY, I took an old denim jacket that I had bought previously at a resale shop and decided to create my own distressed denim look for a fraction of the price!

What you will need:

  • A denim jacket (you can find denim jackets at resale shops for a few bucks)
  • Tweezers
  • Hobby knife/exacto knife
  • Grater/ microplane zester (a file or sand paper would also work well)

I started by using the hobby knife to cut slits wherever I wanted to have holes and frays. Then, I used the tweezers to pull out the blue threads so that only the horizontal white threads of the material were left. To add a more distressed look to the jacket, I used the microplane to rough up the frays even more as well as the stitching of the jacket.
