Vintage clothes are all the rage, and it's not that difficult to make your clothes look like you got them at a thrift store. A vintage hoodie is always much cooler than a brand-new hoodie. If you have a new hoodie that you want to transform into a hoodie of yesteryear, it’s really not as hard as you may think. It takes just a few steps to make a hip hoodie look vintage.
Items you will need
- ¼ cup salt
- 8 cups water
- 1 cup bleach
- Washing machine
Make Your Hoodie Vintage
Soak your hoodie in salt water. Mix ¼ cup salt in 8 cups of water, soak your hoodie in this solution for about 48 hours and then let dry.
Soak your hoodie in salt water while it’s in the direct sun for a doubly vintage look.
Use sandpaper to sand the image on the hoodie until it looks worn down to your liking.
Wash your hoodie in the washing machine with a cup of bleach, but do not dry it.
Dry your hoodie on a clothes line outside and stretch out the neck by pulling on the collar and pulling on the sleeves to achieve that perfect look.
If you don’t have time to make your own vintage, hit a few yard sales or a thrift shop to purchase the already-vintage look.
