DIY: Distressed Denim Skirt



This wonderful DIY is all thanks to rihanna and her killa style. I spotted a pic of her rocking this distressed denim skirt, denim shirt, heels, and a baseball hat. The whole outfit was hot so,I saved the pic and hunted down this high waisted denim skirt at the thrift store. After I chopped and screwed it I love how it turned out. Take a look how to shred your skirt below!


  • Denim skirt
  • Box cutter
  • High grit sand paper
  • Seam Ripper


Mark with a pencil where you want your rips to go. Remember less is more. Don’t go too crazy!


Slide a piece of cardboard between your skirt before cutting. Slit you skirt where you made your marks with your box cutter. Take your seam ripper and start pulling out the white horizontal lines.


With your sandpaper rub over your belt loops, waistband, bottom hem and pockets. It will slowly rub away the denim giving it a worn look.


Throw it in the washer and dryer to fray all your cuts. Viola! A super Fab denim skirt.
