DIY Ripped Jeans.

 photo 08-DSC_0841_zps1b846bd1.jpg

A trend that I personally really love at the moment is Ripped Jeans, it is a look that is fairly simple but can be made to look stylish and edgy by just adding a few rips in the fabric. I have a pair of boyfriend jeans with rips that I completely out wore here on the blog, they were just so comfy and chilled that I was always drawn to wearing them. I also really love the rips which have been added to a slimmer fit jean, my only problem was that at first I couldn't find any in plus sizes and was so annoyed that I decided to make my own version using an old pair of ASOS Curve Super Soft Skinnies and some basic fabric scissors. Not long after I did this I actually noticed that ASOS Curve brought out there own version of plus sized ripped jeans so for those who can't be bothered with the hassle of the DIY then you can find them here. I won't bore you with how I did it as to be honest  it was really simple.I just cut a slice away out from the knee area of the jeans then frayed the edges for a more distressed look. It took me less than 10 minutes and I was fairly impressed with the finish. I completed my ripped jeans look with a simple tee,  my Nike Air Max 1's and of course a good application of red lippy.

What I am wearing:

 Box Crop tee - c/o Simply Be
DIY Ripped Jeans - ASOS 
Air Max 1's - Office
