Tired of your old jeans? Here are a few easy ways to update your denim:
First, if your jeans aren't already faded, rinse them with a bit of bleach in the washing machine. Then head to a craft store and buy some permanent laundry markers. Then comes the fun part. Draw some funky designs right on the pant legs. And if you have any old embroidered dresses, remove the embroidered patches and sew them onto your jeans too. Or try stitching on a few colorful beads to highlight the pockets or pant cuffs. With these simple ideas, you'll transform your jeans into a major fashion statement.
