STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Rugged Prep

Style Advice of the Week

Distressed jeans are one of my favorite trends because you can totally pull off the rugged look while still managing to look put together. There are also so many different levels of distressed jeans to choose from because you can either go for a moderate look and have just a few flaws or you can also go extreme distressed and have it much more intense, and of course you can meet in the middle as well. It just all depends on what kind of look you are going for with your outfit of the day.

The Fashionista that I snapped a photo of for today’s post is rocking the distressed jean look perfectly. I love how she mixes up the rugged look with a preppy feel by adding a peplum bright colored top and some neutral sandals with some detailing. The jewelry and bag also play a part in softening up this look and I think it adds a good balance because of the extreme amount of distressing in the jeans.

Another way you can keep a good balance between distressed jeans and the other component of your outfit if you don’t want to look to rugged is by wearing a moderate destroyed jean and then wearing an edgier top and shoes. It just depends on what look best suits your personal style. There are lots of different places you can find distressed jeans but I think American Eagle Outfitters or Abercrombie & Fitch are both really great places that have amazing quality jeans for a reasonable price.
