One of this summer’s biggest trends in denim is the distressed jean. Yes, the jean that makes your grandparents ask, “You paid money for those?” In my opinion, there is nothing better than a pair of jeans that looks like they’ve been properly broken in. Distressed jeans are one of the few awesome trends from the ’90s that have made a comeback in recent years and I love it.

When I spotted this Fashionista strolling through campus, I was in awe of her very stylish yet super comfortable outfit. Not only is her pair of distressed jeans super trendy right now, but they are also reminiscent of the ’90s Seattle grunge movement. Her green and blue plaid shirt also conjures up song lyrics penned by the troubled genius, Kurt Cobain. As if this outfit wasn’t cool enough, she is also wearing a pair of Birkenstocks, the coolest and most comfortable sandals around.

This Fashionista’s outfit is perfect for those long summer classes and could easily be worn when the weather starts cooling down in the fall semester. I just love how everything she is wearing looks so comfortable and when you are sitting in a lecture hall for three hours at a time, comfort is key. It is my lifelong dream to throw together an outfit so effortlessly and look as awesome as this Fashionista when I go to classes.

One Simple Change: In order to transform this outfit from class to date night, one could simply swap out the jeans for a faux leather skirt from Zara and trade the Birkenstocks for a pair of high heel sandals.
