It's a scorching 88 degrees out, you're at home, no texts, no calls, no plans, just sitting in your room... so you ask yourself, "What is there to do on a hott, summer day?" You see an old pair of shorts eyeing you from the corner of your closet, like a laser, crumbled up, creating a sad face and puppy dog eyes begging to be warn again. You think to yourself, "Ah those shorts are so out of style. High-waist with a "Mom jeans" apperance." When suddenly a light bulb appears above your head! Why don't I try to restyle these shorts!
Okay, so maybe all of that didn't happen to you, lol but everyone has a pair of shorts, that are not so great looking, that could use a little sprucing up! I actually bought my shorts I used for this project from a thrift store for $4 or $5, I can't remember. But I know they were cheap. Most of the items I buy from a thrift store, I use in a DIY project to kind of bring it back to life! The true part of the story was that it was a hott summer day and I had nothing to do. This is a fun project to do by yourself or with your friends. My friend's and I had a DIY get together in my apartment during the school year.
There are several different things you can DIY to a pair of jeans or shorts. You can distress them, by ripping, bleach them, stud them, spike them, turn jeans into shorts, etc. I have tried most of these methods and they really do help turn "trash to treasure!"
I hope you take these tips and create some kool DIY clothes for yourself! Leave me a comment and tell me about your DIY experience.
