Hey everyone! Welcome back to Mackenzie Kateri! Drum roll pleaseeeee! Today’s post is a DIY denim dress. Last week, I was sifting through the racks at the thrift store and I came across a size large vintage overall inspired denim dress. I loved it!! But, I was so sad that it was too big for me!! Who am I kidding? That didn’t stop me. Though the dress wasn’t my size I knew that it just needed a little hemming and taken in a bit on the sides. And a couple days ago, after I finished these tasks, I was staring at the dress and found myself thinking that it needed a twist or more pizazz or I don’t even know!! Then it came to me. FRINGE. Denim fringe is literally a trend bombarding Instagram and the fashion world by day. And the best part about this trend is that you can DO IT YOURSELF. It’s easy, simple, and all I used was a pair of scissors. I watched some tutorials online that suggested other tools!
So how did I create this fringe look? First, I hemmed a line across the bottom of the dress where the hem would start. Then, I started chopping and slicing away. I cut the denim into small strips and pulled on the edges to get the strips to fray. Yes, this look is that easy.
Denim dresses are totally trending. The lighter wash denim dresses scream retro and the 80’s. And the darker denim conveys a fall, country look. They are a great transition piece to add to your closet for fall. I think that they look great with turtle necks or any long sleeve sweater.
What are your thoughts low or high boots with this outfit?! I couldn’t decide! The necklace is from New York and Company only eight dollars! I love how the yellow juxtaposes the denim.
