Denim is always in style, no matter the season or in which direction the current trendy winds are blowing. It’s a timeless material that you can use for the creation of several different pieces, from pants to tops, that are going to give your style a significant character. Check out our top DIY denim picks that will feed your passion for fashion!

We’re starting off with a denim jacket because it’s one of the most popular and recognizable denim pieces that always makes us dream about the 90’s. Give the classic jeans jacket a modern upgrade by following the instructions at Trash to Couture!
