diy: cut-out jeans

    a new way to show a little skin.

    by · October 24, 2013
    It was love at first sight between the NYLON staff and a pair of black cropped trousers with heart cut-outs at the ankles. We met our dream pants during fashion week, when our street style photographer, Melodie Jeng of The NYC Streets, snapped a girl wearing them outside of Honor’s spring ’14 show in New York. (You can see her in our street style roundup right here.)
    Since that fateful day, we’ve been brainstorming how to make our own cut-out pants. With some jeans from Bongo and some very sharp scissors, we took matters into our own hands and DIYed three different designs: a heart, an arrow, and a zig-zag. Don’t worry, we’ll show you how to do it to with our handy DIY guide. You can rock your cut-out pants bare legged or on chilly days like today, add some bright socks for a little peek-a-boo action.
    Check out how we DIYed our jeans in the gallery and share your own denim DIYs with us on Twitter and Facebook.
