I love jeans as much as the next girl, but I think we can all agree that we get sick of them quickly. It’s not even that we get sick of them, but they just lose a lot of that touch of style that they originally had! It’s amazing how much you can do to add to a pair of jeans you don’t necessarily love anymore, and these tips will give you so many new ideas!
1. Cuff Them
If you’re over your skinny jeans but aren’t quite ready to buy a new pair yet, try cuffing them. The style makes your entire look a little more relaxed and comfortable, but adds a chic touch that never occurred to you before. It’s such an easy way to update a pair of jeans that you’ve grown tired of.
2. Or Un-cuff Them!
Maybe your jeans are already cuffed into a boyfriend-style. Try the opposite of the last tip! Try un-cuffing them and figure out what style you’re left with. Maybe your jeans are skinny jeans—wear them tucked into boots. Perhaps they’re a wider leg style. Although a lot of people are nervous to jump on the trend, wide leg jeans are a huge trend this year that you may as well hop on now!
3. Crop Them
If the ends of your jeans have seen better days (I’m talking frayed ends, tears, etc.) simply crop them into capris. They’ll look chic and purposeful rather than messy and ruined. It’s a great way to add new life to a pair of jeans you’ve grown sick of.
4. Layer with Long Socks
When it gets cold, you immediately run for your favorite pair of comfortable jeans. However, those jeans have probably seen better days, and you don’t want your jeans to look dingy. Instead, layer a pair of thick socks over your jeans, and then wear a pair of boots. The look is one of the biggest cold weather trends this year, and definitely one that you need to jump on!
5. Add Some Texture and Holes
If your jeans are worn-down and have seen better days but they don’t necessarily look chic, add some holes yourself. Rub some sandpaper over your knees and other areas where you think distressing would look cool for a pair of one-of-a-kind jeans!
6. Go Ombré
If the Ombré trend is still your favorite, get bleach and recreate the look on your old pair of jeans. Start from the bottom, slowly putting your jeans in the bleach and then slowly take them out. The ankles of your jeans will be the most bleached, but if you don’t want the entire jeans bleached, stop around mid-thigh. If you’ve done tie-dye before, it’s a similar process to that!
7. Add Lace to Jeans with Too Many Holes
If you think there’s no fixing your jeans with a ton of holes in them, never fear! There’s always something that can fix your favorite pair of jeans. Take pieces of lace and sew them on the biggest holes of your jeans. It will look purposeful and so boho that people will ask where you bought them!
