DIY: Raw Hem

The raw hem trend has blown up recently.  

I LOVE it because it takes me back to when I used to do the same thing to my jeans in the 5th grade (anyone else?). While Zara, Revolve, and others are selling any and every version of raw hem/distressed denim, you can make your own version if you have an old pair of jeans and 20 minutes to spare.

All you need is a seam cutter or a skinny pair of scissors, and a little patience (it's a bit tedious). I grabbed an old pair of faded skinnies and spiced up my ends.

Start from the inside of your pant leg and snip the seam all the way around until the bottom unfolds. Voilà.
