I found these super slick Rag & Bone pantalones on the interwebs a few days back:
But also, super trendy.
In my recent effort to never invest in trendy items ever (toot toot classic pieces!) I decided to make this bleach ombre dream myself instead of purchasing. Also, I'm broke. So buying was not a legitimate option. I used a beat-up pair of BDG jeans that I was planning to throw away anyways.
Reduce, reuse, recycle. Save the environment and some shekels all in one shot.
You know what I always say: When the world gives you ratty-worn-down jeans, bleach 'em!
I know mine didn't turn out exactly like the Rag & Bone pair. A bit less subtle in color and fade, but bomb in their own right. In real life, it looks kind of like a flame. In my mind, these are the jeans Katniss Everdeen would wear, if only they were red...
1. Bleach from Duane Reade.
2. A spray bottle. (I used an old hair spray bottle because I'm cheap like that.)
3. A garbage bag.
4. Old black jeans from Urban Outfitters.
Pour the bleach into the spray bottle.
Lay the bottom of your jeans over the garbage bag on the floor.
Spray the bleach on the bottom section of the jeans focusing a heavy spray on the ankle are and a lighter mist on the calf area. Let dry and repeat on the back side.
