You Can Recreate Lily Aldridge’s Jeans With One Simple DIY

When we come across flawless celebrity style images, the first thing we do is scan the look from head to toe, to see what we can recreate with pieces we already own (don’t have the same Hollywood budget, you see). Lily Aldridge was just snapped on her way to a Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show fitting wearing a graphic print jumper, blue jeans, and tan suede ankle boots (which, FYI, are the perfect pair of boots for city girls this summer). The outfit was simple, yet striking, and it was all due to the details—one which you can easily recreate at home with a pair of scissors.

We already know the $7 trick to making your pants look like they’re Balenciaga, and how to make your heels look more expensive, but how do you make your jeans look more expensive? Take a pair of scissors, and snip vertically up the side hems to create a mini kick-flare. Designers like Frame, and Steve J & Yoni P are incoorproating this style into their collections, but why not try the look for free before you commit?

Keep scrolling to see Lily’s full look (and so you can see how high up to stop snipping), and shop a pair of blue jeans.
