I enjoy shopping more than most, but I also love to save money. Frayed hem or even step hem denim is the must-have jean for Spring and Summer. A designer pair cost more up to $270, like these from Mother.  I’m showing you how to get the look for less in this easy DIY.

You will need:

A pair of your favorite jeans. I found these of AG’s on sale at Nordstrom Rack

A Pair of scissors

A seam ripper

Let me know how they turn out in the comments section below. Share a picture of your finished project on Instagram by tagging #chataignestyle

    Great DIY idea and so easy! I might even try it myself. My husband still has to tell everyone about the $$ I paid for a pair of distressed jeans. Maybe I shouldn’t let him in on the one, lol!

      My husband said the same thing! I returned the ones I bought! I just looked at them closely and figured it out. Give it and try and let me know. Thanks for visiting!
