sayyestohoboken distressed jeans How To: Perfectly Distressed Jeans

Give your jeans that coveted lived-in look—sans the years it usually takes to get them there—with this perfectly distressed jeans tutorial from Liz at Say Yes to Hoboken!

Yesterday I talked a bit about the latest trend of distressed jeans which I’m loving! I experimented with a few techniques this weekend to distress your own pair (since it seems absolutely ridiculous to pay for a new pair of distressed jeans) and made some interesting discoveries about how to distress and how to prevent the little knee hole from becoming a big saggy, baggy one.
