Jeggings are a trendy clothing item that look like denim jeans but are as light and form fitting as leggings. If you look good in skinny jeans, jeggings would be an appropriate outfit for you to consider. If you’d like to give your jeggings an edgy look, you can rip the fabric in the areas of your choice using a pair of scissors.

Things You'll Need

Put the jeggings on. Since the fabric is so stretchy, it will be more effective for you to rip them while you are wearing them. This will allow you to control the size and shape of the tears.

Pinch a little of the jegging fabric away from your skin, directly over the area where you’d like a rip. Snip the pinched fabric to create a tiny hole.

Use your fingers to carefully rip the fabric connected to the hole, creating a tear that is as long or short as you’d like.

Repeat over any area in the jeggings that you’d like to have ripped. Over the top of the thighs, down the sides of the legs, and in front of or behind the knees are all areas that could be considered.
