Own a pair of crop flares? I don’t. Well … I didn’t until I attempted my own DIY crop flares at home! I’m really digging this trend but have been on the defense about purchasing yet again another well … trend. Throwing away more money in to something that may not be around next season and who knows … may not even look good on my chicken legs.
So I decided to attempt the crop flare trend on my own with a pair of old flares that I have yet to wear in years (not at all an exaggeration). You can imagine how pleasantly surprised I was that they still fit, might I add. The fact that these flares have remained un worn for that long, I did not have the slightest hesitation to take some scissors and hack away to create this trend on my own. Cost me nothing. That’s a trend I’m willing to attempt.
It’s so easy, I don’t even need to write up a step by step. Just try the flares on and pin the length to where you would like your new hem to fall. Leave 1/2 an inch for any mistakes as well as for distressing. I threw mine in the wash after pulling the ends a bit for more of a frayed finished look.
Thats it! I love a good DIY trend with out spending a dime. Now to style my masterpiece …
But in case you want to splurge rather than DIY, I’ve linked a few styles that I love!
