The $0 Way to Make Old Jeans Cool Again
Put away the credit card
You know those '80s button-fly jeans burning a hole in your storage room? ("Mom jeans," if you will?) We have news: They're cool again. Here's a super-easy way to transition them firmly back into your outfit rotation. All you need is a pair of scissors.
Here's what you do: Snip off the hem. That's it.
You've been rolling the bottoms of your boyfriend jeans for years now. The idea here is the same: You want to crop your pant leg right above the ankle to give a little air and style. But these vintage straight-leg denim pairs look best with a rough, raw hem (kind of like they just came out of an REO Speedwagon concert). So get to digging and snipping. You'll be the trendiest one at brunch.
