DIY: How to Easily Fray Jeans

It’s always a win-win situation when you find a cool new way to style an older piece of clothing in your closet. That’s exactly what happened when I decided to fray the edges of a pair of jeans I’ve had for the last two summers. I’ve been loving the frayed hem trend so doing this DIY was so exciting for me. Peep below for a tutorial on how to DIY fray jeans like a boss in a few easy steps. Plus catch a simple cool way to style this look. Disclaimer: the distressed patches on the jeans came that way. I only frayed the hem.

First, try on the pair of jeans to see where you’d like to cut it. Once you get a sense of where you’d like to crop the jeans, mark the jeans where you’d like to cut it and make sure it’s even.

After placing your jeans on a flat surface, cut to your desired length. Usually, two inches is a good average length.

Pull the edges from the bottom of the jeans until it’s frayed as little or as much as you want.

You can also use sandpaper for a more exaggerated look. Keep in mind your jeans will fray the more you wear it.
