Cut off the bottoms of your jeans to a length that suits you best. Intentionally fray the ends.

Grab a pair of shorts that you like the length of and place it on top of the jeans. This will be your guide for your highest cut. Slit the jeans and create a hole however you desire.

Continue with as much distress you want your jeans to have!

3 Things To Consider Before Making a Fashion Purchase

We know you’re all about that fashion life, and we get it – spending money on clothes is always a good idea.

But if you’re like most of us and have way too little money to spend for such expensive taste, then we want to help a sister out. We’re giving advice out for free – and who doesn’t like a freebie here and there?

Read on for 3 simple things to consider before making a big fashion purchase.

#1 Think of at least 3 different ways you can style the item.
If you don’t already have at least 3 different outfits that you can picture yourself in with this fashion item, then maybe you don’t need to buy it just yet. It’s good practice for buying less and getting more out of things.

#2 If you can’t stop thinking about it, buy it.
If you’ve talked yourself out of buying this thing for a long, long time and you wish you had this item to complete your everyday outfits, then maybe it’s worth investing in. It’s not like an impulse buy; if you can’t get it off your mind when putting together an outfit, go for it!

#3 Can you get a better deal for it elsewhere?
This is rule number one for any frugal friends out there. Shop around in-store and online to see if you can find the same item but with a smaller price tag.

HEY LOVE BUG: Unique gift ideas for your Valentine

It’s February and it’s officially Valentine’s month.

Whether you’ve got a partner to celebrate with or not, you’re going to be surrounded with the color red and love heart shapes for the next couple of weeks.

We know the struggles that guys and girls endure when shopping around for the perfect gift. Looking for something with the perfect balance of thoughtfulness and sexy isn’t as easy as it sounds and, these days, people don’t just want to settle for a box of chocolates and a rose from Target!

So you need some Valentine’s Day gift inspiration? Look no further, love bugs! We’ve got some ideas.

FOR HER

Bralettes. The tradition lingerie gifts are so last year! It’s all about the sexy bralette. The only bad thing about getting your girl a bralette? The amount of choices you have.

Customized Jewellery. Don’t rule jewellery out of the picture if Diamonds aren’t in your price range. You can get adorable customized jewellery that say so much. Get a significant date engraved onto a ring, or a little message on a bracelet!

Baked Goods. A girl loves to eat – there’s no denying it. When it’s sweet and from their significant other, it becomes much more special. Take the time to bake something yourself and give it your own personal touch.

FOR HIM

Tickets to their favorite band. Are you loved up enough to see your partner’s weird favorite band with them? If so, then this is the perfect thoughtful gift that gives back.

Cologne. How do you want your man to smell like? Tom Ford? Maybe a bit of Versace? This is a gift that is sexy and something that they wouldn’t normally buy for themselves. Win, win!

Man Candle. Yep, they exist. And they probably smell better than your boyfriends’ apartment right now.

Following our DIY Cut Off Shorts tutorial, which claims to be the easiest DIY, we’re bringing you an even easier DIY that’ll definitely come in handy.

It’s so incredibly easy but it’ll change up an outfit instantly! Here’s what to do…

What You’ll Need

Grab a crop top that fits you like a glove. Place that top on top of your tee and mark where you want to cut.

Making sure your tee is straight and flat, cut across in a straight line.

Aaaand just like that, you’re done! Throw your new crop top on and pair it with some high waisted bottoms to complete your outfit of the day!

TRON SUNNIES

It’s all about the one and only Tron Sunnies.

The Tron Sunnies are the next essential accessory that you need to get your paws on. Perfect for showing off your style, the Tron Sunnies are on every fashionista’s must-have list.

Don’t be fooled – they aren’t your average pair of sunglasses. They have very subtle colored lenses and bring back the groovy to the modern day fashion guru. The Tron Sunnies are available in 2 colors: Black border with a blue lens or Red border with a pink lens. Both are equally dope AF.

Screenshot_2015-12-21-14-49-26Let’s talk about the frames on these sunnies. For the most part, the frames are clear, but the arms have a tortoiseshell print which gives the sunnies a little luxe feel.

Screenshot_2015-12-21-14-43-43But the real show stopper is the silhouette of this bad boy. Picture a futuristic cat-eye, and that’s what the Tron Sunnies are. There’s even a dainty cut-out as part of the frame silhouette – so subtle but, it adds a whole lot of unique to it.

These sunnies will have you snapping up a pair for yourself in no time because, for real, who wouldn’t want to rock these glasses?

Screenshot_2015-12-21-14-46-28The Tron Sunnies are $14.80.
