Denim transformations are some of my favorite projects to tackle because there are so many different things you can do to revamp an old, boring pair of jeans. This two-tone, half bleached stye has been trending lately, especially with the youngsters on TikTok, and I just love the look. Here's how to transform a basic pair of denim jeans into these stylish two tone bleached jeans with just a few simple materials!

Supplies

  • Pair of jeans (darker wash is best)
  • Garbage bags (or something else to place your jeans on)
  • Smaller bag for other pant leg
  • Tape
  • Gloves
  • Bleach
  • Spray bottle (for the bleach)
  • Mask and goggles/glasses for extra protection
  • *Please work outside or in a very well ventilated area!

Step 1: Gather Materials

What you'll need:

  • Pair of jeans (darker wash is best)
  • Garbage bags (or something else to place your jeans on)
  • Smaller bag for other pant leg
  • Tape
  • Gloves
  • Bleach
  • Spray bottle (for the bleach)
  • Mask and goggles/glasses for extra protection

*Please work outside or in a very well ventilated area!

Step 2: Bag & Tape One Leg

Put one pant leg into a plastic bag and tape it securely so no bleach gets on that leg.

Step 3: Apply First Bleach Layer

Pour bleach into your spray bottle and generously spray the entire cover of the front of the jeans leg. Then leave it to sit for 3-4 hours or so. Be sure to wear gloves and a mask or bandana, and apply the bleach outdoors/in a well ventilated area!

After 3-4 hours, flip the jeans over and spray the other side of the jeans leg with bleach. Leave to set for another 3-4 hours.

Step 4: Apply Second Bleach Layer

The pair of jeans I used were still a bit blotchy and spotty after the first layer of bleach. If you prefer this look, you're all done and ready to wash, dry and wear! However, if you want a more even color like I did, repeat step 3 and apply a second layer of bleach to both sides. Let each side set for 3-4 hours. You will see a big difference!

Step 5: Rinse, Wash & Dry

Once the second round has had a chance to set, rinse them in a bathtub or sink to remove the excess bleach. Then wash and dry per usual.

Step 6: All Done!

What a transformation! A spray bottle and some bleach can really go a long way. Thank you for checking out this tutorial and I'd love to hear from you if you try it out!
