Time and time again, I will spot a pair of patched, perfectly distressed designer jeans and think: I could totally make those. But, do I make them? No. Somehow, time-intensive sewing projects just never seem to make it onto my evening agenda.
But, when I saw this photo of Susie Bubble cooly stepping out of a cab at NYFW wearing the most ideal, colorful pair, the old distressed-denim envy crept back in. So, I decided to hack my way to the look; I grabbed my safety pins, a pair of Forever21 boyfriend jeans, and two silk scarves. Ahead, the laziest (and most affordable) way to do your own fashion denim. No sewing required.

The best part about this hack? You can take the scarves off for washing. Or, if you get sick of the look (heaven forbid) you still have a plain pair of distressed denim.
