The cutoff style doesn’t have to be exclusive to just shorts as this uneven hemline has been quite popular on a lot of streetstyle bloggers. Granted as cool as they were, I wasn’t inclined to pay premium retail prices so I got myself a cheap pair of jeans and proceeded to cut them up as I pleased. I’m pretty happy with the result, though I do wish that the jeans were more tapered at the ankle but that’s just due to my jeans not being ultra skinny like I usually get them. But better yet for those of you looking to recreate this, thrift a pair of denim jeans from your local thrift store to save even more and to have IDEAL worn in denim cut offs.
I styled my cutoff uneven hem jeans with a baggy sweater, scarf (because it’s still cold where I live), fishnet socks and black pumps. This is a more going out look but you can definitely dress these jeans down with sneakers or denim shorts for the summer!
TIME | 10 mins
COST | $10
What you’ll need:
- A pair of jeans (preferably skinny)
- Seam ripper (optional but helpful)
- Marker or pen
- Flip your jeans inside out
- Measure the height of the desired cutout for the uneven hem, I did 2 inches
- Cut out the front of the jeans to create the uneven hem
- Take your seam ripper and remove the bottom hem of your jeans to give it a more worn in and frayed look
- Wash them to get the wispys and frayed denim to be more pronounced
Like always, if you happen to recreate this DIY, use the hashtag #DECONSTRUT so I can see it 🙂
