There’s always that awkward transition period between winter, spring, and summer when you’re not quite sure how to dress. You’re wearing your favorite denims happily one day, and then the next day it’s so hot you want to rip them right off. Well, you can!Sortof. Just grab some scissors and go to town on a pair of old jeans. Or new jeans. Or your dad’s jeans. Really, anything you have laying around that you don’t feel like stashing away until next winter. (But maybe ask permission if they’re Dad’s.)
This simple DIY is the cheapest method of adding shorts to your warm-weather wardrobe. And the best part about cutting your own pants is the ability to custom pick the length. You can go super short if you’re feeling flirty, or just above the knee for some sophisticated class. And why stop at the cut? Embellish your new summer staple by adding some fun trim or distressing the texture.
Oh, and those old grass stains on the knees? *Snip Snip* Gone! Convinced yet?
