FASHION DIY FRIDAY: Extreme distressed jeans

Welcome to Fashion DIY Friday, where you create the goods.

We’ve seen a lot of distressed denim walking the streets and it’s been modelled by some of the best names in fashion. We’re talking Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid and who can forget bad gal Rhi Rhi!

We’re taking inspiration from the distressed jean and delivering you a DIY that anyone can do. Get ready for the Extreme Distressed Jean.

What You’ll Need
– Any pair of jeans
– Good scissors





Cut off the bottoms of your jeans to a length that suits you best. Intentionally fray the ends.

Grab a pair of shorts that you like the length of and place it on top of the jeans. This will be your guide for your highest cut. Slit the jeans and create a hole however you desire.

Continue with as much distress you want your jeans to have!

STYLE THIS: Culottes

Ask me to style a pair of Culottes a few years ago and you would’ve got me stumped for sure. 

I would’ve never thought that I’d be caught wearing wide leg 3/4 pants at classy events, but I luckily had a change of heart. Culottes are such a chic design that any one can pull off! They’re a popular choice of bottoms for fashion influencers, so get some inspiration, invest in a good pair of Culottes, shimmy into them and make the world your runway!

Here are two ways that I would style Culottes. Which is your favourite look?

It’s no secret that November is transcending into warmer clothes to drool for. Summer was great and all but the chilly coolness and saturated weather has finally touched down! Well at least here in bipolar California. TBH, I am over the sweaty, treacherous heat waves and I am ready to cozy up in layers. ‘Tis the season for layering! Now let me tell you something I’ve been eyeing in realization in this seasons style steady making its way as we speak: Flannel Dresses.

Yep. The plaid kinds with a twist. And that is side slit details to create a more edgy ass feel. Another thing about these button up flannel dresses is that you can even switch it up to an outerwear as if you are wearing a maxi coat or cardi. Check out the deetz of my #OOTD with photographer Erick Tran.
