I’m a fashion stylist – my cheap tip makes baggy jeans fit perfectly without sewing

THERE'S nothing worse than ill-fitting garments that make your look go from runway ready to drab.

And if you often experience this issue in regard to your jeans, fashion guru Lucy Legret has shared how to tailor your pants to fit your waist without the professional cost.


"If you're like me and trousers and jeans are always too big on the waist for you cause you've either got wider hips or just a teeny waist, I always do this shoelace trick," Legret began in a video.

Using a pair of denim jeans from Zara as a model, she proceeded to show how she gets her waist "snatched" when wearing pants.

You'll need to get a shoelace and make an incision on the left and right sides of your jeans.

Grab a safety pin to help you feed the shoelace through the band of the jeans until it comes out on the other end.

When you put your jeans on and tie the shoelace, you'll find that the fabric gathers up and your jeans are snug around the waistline.

Legret also added that if there is a blockage in the middle of your jeans preventing the shoelace from going through, you'll just need to create two more incisions in the area.

When asked if she keeps the shoelaces in when she washes the jeans, Legret responded: "Yes I have never had to do anything extra after putting the laces in. Just wear/wash as normal."

People in the comments section were ecstatic about the game-changing tip and gave some helpful advice of their own.

"Put the shoelace through a straw… Feed the straw through it. So much easier. I do it on hoodies when the string comes out in the washer," one person mentioned.

"I’m so happy I found this video omg."

"You can also do two cuts further to the back, thread through some elastic, and sew it on both sides – works really well!"

"I have always struggled with my jeans, I can’t wait to try this!" said a final person.
