hether it has those little snips around the knees or large skin-showing patches, distressed denim is on everybody’s fashion radar right now. Now those prim and proper jeans have become a passé since the torn distressed denims have replaced them. This season designers have communicated that distressed is the new chic when it comes to denims. Design houses like Rachel Zoe, Alice and Olivia, Diesel, Rachel Comey, Nicole Miller and BLK DNM have had models walk in worn and beaten-up denim with high heels on their runways and we have majorly fallen for this uber chic trend!
Not only are they favoured by the designer lot, celebrities all over the world have been spotted wearing distressed denims. There’s Rihanna, Neha Dhupia, Jacqueline Fernandez, Deepika Padukone, Dino Morea, Shah Rukh Khan, Vivek Oberoi, Ranbir Kapoor, Shahid Kapoor, Katrina Kaif, Kareena Kapoor, Preity Zinta, Masaba Gupta, Kangna Ranaut, Anushka Sharma, Gwen Steffani, Halle Berry and Rihanna who have been rocking this all new distressed phenomenon.
There’s a distressed pair for everybody. All you need to do is style it according to your personality.
Replace your regular jeans with a distressed pair. Those who think that this trend is only for teenagers don’t know what a pair of heels can make distressed denims look like. Teaming heels with it will add dollops of chic to your look. Plus points if you paint your pout with a bright lip colour!
Go rocker chic by pairing boots and tartan shirt with your distressed pair. You can either wear a loose braid along with the look or make a top knot. Don’t forget to paint those nails black.
Guys! Show your carefree tough side by wearing distressed jeans instead of those boring plain ones. Stack studded bracelets to add character.
If you want to play safe then just team a white Tee or shirt with a distressed pair of jeans. The look will be somewhere between simple and rugged and will turn out to be a perfect casual look!
To sum it up, the plain skinny jeans is a passé this season. Go for the distressed one to make a statement.
