DIY Burgundy Trousers

Exploring with clothes that are left at the back of my wardrobe, which says I will never wear again has become my latest experiement. My favourite yet, the Burgundy richness of the gradiented tones of black and earthy purple/red is a tone I haven't recognised in the retailers. Once clean white Jeans which are very limited in styling looks, especially on occasions where you can't keep your white's staying new. My technique was rather experiment, not knowing out the outcome resulted, but I was very pleased. I came up with the idea of the oily texture and western distressed like stains, that looked like clothes had been existing and worn many times. In fact I had only worn these white jeans twice, as it was limited to where I was going. The exploration of design is endless, so it doesn't have to be one tone palette. Here is my step to step guide. 

1.  A few Shoe Wax tubs in Brown & Black and a brush
2. Brush into trousers, in circular, directional 
3. Leave to dry in the Sun for the oil to soak up
4. It has been tested once washed that it will fade a natural tone
Once White Jeans, now Burgundy 


  1. You know what? I may try this myself, although perhaps with a different colour. Cool DIY.

  2. It's an awesome piece of writing designed for all the web visitors; they will take benefit from it I am sure.

    Feel free to visit my web site: I agree with that
