Hi! Annette here from Xtra Lush, a plus size fashion, travel and lifestyle blog. I've been following Curvy Mod for a while and have always loved Nina's classic yet flirty style. We also have a lot of similar goals for our blogs, so I decided to reach out to her via Instagram and ask if we could collaborate! I'm super excited to be a guest blogger on Curvy Mod and can't wait to share my top 10 Distressed Denim DIY's with you.
Distressed Denim is a wardrobe staple. From light distressing to tears and holes, this edgy detail continues to be a major trend. With summer quickly approaching, shorts season is upon us and what's easier than taking a pair of your worn in jeans and turning them into shorts? I've scoured the web and found the best and easiest denim DIY's. You can see my favorites below and even more inspo on my Pinterest.
The Perfect Distress
Nadia in High Low Shorts
This High-Low Hem look from Swell Mayde was the go-to look last summer and is back again. Plus you get a little more coverage in the back with this style.
This Distressed Hem look from a pair & a spare is simple and classic with a bit of an edge. I like how these shorts are cuffed, so you can leave a little more length.
If shorts aren't for you, try this Frayed Hem look from Refinery 29. Not only is this style all over the the runway and available at every retailer near you. It's the perfect solution for a pair of jeans that are just a bit too long.
I love the exposed pockets on these Distressed Denim Shorts from Swell Mayde.
