STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Distressed Over Denim

Rule number one: Jeans are a wardrobe staple for every Fashionista. They’re a piece that one should be able to find in any closet, but the fit, style and detail of a pair is a key component to making sure they stand out from the rest of the bunch. This brings us to one of the latest trends in denim: distressing.

If there is one thing you need to know about me, it’s that I love a good pair of jeans, especially with holes in them. There are many different types of distressed denim out there, so everyone is bound to find the perfect pair. Distressing can range from one simple knee rip to gaping holes and bleach spots—that’s what makes it different. It also helps take any outfit up a notch. For example, wearing all-black, except for her jeans, is what makes this Fashionista’s choice of distressed denim the centerpiece of her outfit.

Denim has taken on a number of forms throughout fashion history and will always continue to fit the mold. The best thing about denim is that it’ll never go out of style; it’ll just continue to evolve. We’ve crazed over every kind of jean possible from the high-waist pair to the boyfriend fit and the cropped ankle trend. Now, buy a pair from those different fits and styles. Factor in some form of distressing, and you’ve got a recipe for greatness.
