How To Make Patchwork Pocket Denim With I SPY DIY

Jenni R. from I SPY DIY here. For my next installment, I took a pair of classic denim and added a pop of color to create patchwork pocket shorts. You can choose any fabric that suits your #AEOSTYLE to create a pair that’s unique to you! Check out my easy step-by-step guide below.

DIY Patchwork Denim Shorts

What you need:
AEO Denim X Kick Boot Jean

Fabric
Scissors
Marker
Hem tape
Fabric Glue

DIY Patchwork Denim Shorts

What you do:
Step 1:
Turn your AEO Denim X Kick Boot Jean into shorts by cutting a straight line across both legs.

Step 2: Choose a piece of fabric that is large enough to cover the back pockets of the jeans. Lay the fabric flat on the jeans and trace the shape of the pockets onto the fabric.

Step 3: Create another outline of the pocket that is 1/2” wider than the initial one on all sides. Cut around this outer line.

Step 5: Adhere the fabric to the pocket using using fabric glue and let dry. Be careful not to glue the opening of the pocket shut.

What Makes Thetique #AerieREAL

We asked one of our favorite bloggers, Tiana from Thetique, what makes her #AerieREAL. Tiana gets REAL by encouraging everyone to embrace their curves and love the imperfections that make us unique.

What Makes Thetique #AerieREAL

 What makes Tiana #AerieREAL:
“I love brands that continuously remain authentic and encourage us all to be proud of the wonderful things we have to offer. The #AerieREAL Campaign is reminding women across the world to love their freckles, embrace their curves, and show off all of the beautiful characteristics that make us complexly and undeniably ourselves. Because let’s face it: we’ve all been “that girl” secretly wishing we had “her legs” or “her hair.” But I can guarantee that while you’re swooning over someone else’s beauty, another person is admiring yours all the same.”

What Makes Thetique #AerieREAL

“The truth of the matter is that we all have these insanely unique qualities about ourselves, and they’re what make us the amazing humans we are. So we need to stop looking to others and start looking at ourselves – I think we’d be surprised at how much beauty we find there.”

How to Wear the Denim X Boho Artist Flare with Frank Vinyl

What Inspired Francesca’s Look:
“My favorite is anything that is California Boho but I love to mix and match styles. I styled my AEO jeans with some platforms, fringe bag and off the shoulder boho top for a easy summer time look. I love anything that is flirty, feminine and a slight casual feel. The 70’s look is very “in” right now but I have also always been a long time fan of anything  vintage and slightly nostalgic. I added fringe and platforms with big round sunnies to reference the 70’s vibes.”How to Wear the Denim X Boho Artist Flare with Frank Vinyl
