Cut offs

Cut offs are once again very popular this summer. It’s a huge DIY trend to not only make your own cut offs but to embellish them as well. Studs, ombre dyed, adding lace, decorative pockets, etc. Here’s a really cute idea of ombre bleaching the top part of the jeans and using fabric paints to make an awesome design:

Although I am not a big fan of the fit, vintage Levi 501’s and a crop top seems to be the big hit this summer. There are tons already embellished and ready for you to wear available on Etsy as well as local boutiques. Or just it up the local thrift store and pick up some old jeans and pull out the scissors, bleach, paint, and studs. Here’s a style I’ve seen numerous times. Just cut along the outer edge of the back pockets and add large studs:

Or just add studs to the entire back pocket:

Here’s a pair that I made at work using Tulip One Step Dye in Coral, Tulip Iron on Studs, and Tulip Soft paints:

And don’t forget to run to forever 21 to choose from their hundreds of crop tops to go with those new cut offs!

  1. I have never worn a pair of shorts shorter than an inch or so above my knee. I really wish I had the confidence to, I like this trend.
