This fall, distressed denim is definitely still in. Holes in your jeans haven’t been this widely accepted since around the early 2000’s, so it’s time to live it up in your relaxed classics or take a pair of scissors to those pristine boyfriend jeans.
The main tip here is to go big or go home. Instead of distressed, thing destroyed! Pass up the pair of jeans with three quarter-sized opaque scratches and go for something more ragged. You’re looking for denim with plenty of rips, fraying and holes. A pair of jeans like this is visually interesting because distressing is by nature one-of-a-kind, and they are great to have in your closet to create contrast with more structured pieces.
Style them with anything from sneakers to heels, from band tees to silk camisoles and blazers.
