Adding a unique pattern to your jeans can bring life to some bland denim. Try adding some colorful or black lace to an old pair of jeans or a pattern to the back pockets for a more subdued change. If you’re looking for a fresh start, purchase a patterned pair of jeans. From simple stripes to neon colors and painted denim, there are plenty of unique jeans to choose from.
Studs are the perfect way to add a subtle pop to your jeans. Cuff your jeans and add studs to the cuffs or try lining the outside seams of your jeans with a single line of studs.
Make your jeans pop with multiple jean patterns. Cut an old light wash pair of denim jeans and add them in patches to your new dark wash pair. Aren’t looking to rip up any of your current pairs of jeans? Take a trip to the local thrift store to find a cheap pair you won’t mind cutting up or search for patches you can add to your jeans instead.
Bleach dying is just like tie-dying only with bleach instead of colored dyes. With a darker wash pair of denim, bleach dying will leave lighter bleaches sections of your jeans for a new look. The more water you use, the more faded the initial color will be. Choose a heavily diluted solution for a softer transition between patterns or a strong bleach solution for a bold pattern.
Adding patterns or studs and combining different washing are a few simple ways to spruce up your denim jeans.
