Design personalized and distressed jeans in minutes using a Dremel

Finding a personalized sense of fashion can take time, but it doesn’t have to take a lot of money. Fashion trends have a way of coming and going quickly meaning its important to have some tricks to stylizing clothes already in the closet instead of needing to purchase everything new at full price. When it comes to jeans, the distressed look hits the fashion mark but can be detrimental to the wallet. There’s no need to spend a dime when a Dremel can take an old pair of jeans and turn them into something that looks like it came right off the rack.
Once the area where distressing is desired has been marked on the jeans, all it takes is a few moments to wear away the fabric with a Dremel and create a look that’s truly one-of-a-kind. Picking the threads into the ripped away look that’s required to make a fashion statement is easy once the Dremel has weakened the materials. Placing a towel inside the pant leg is a good way to protect the backside of jeans and help them last well into the future. Wear this pair of distressed denim daily for a casual look or mix it with something more elegant to take them into the evening hours in style.
