Denim is one of my sartorial go-to’s. Whether it’s jeans or a denim-inspired, chambray shirt, I always feel comfortable, effortless and sexy in denim. I love the distressed look, especially going into summer as it evokes such a casual cool feel. However, there are ways to do it properly:
1. Keep the distressing light and in places where it would naturally happen (knees, around pockets).
2. Make sure the jeans actually fit well– people can overlook fit because of the distressing
3. Women (and men) of any age can wear distressed denim, but I would suggest that the older you get, the less distressing you have. You want it to look like these are your favourite, super old jeans that still happen to look amazing.
For this denim look, I was inspired by Denim and Supply Ralph Lauren‘s #ProjectWarehouse campaign. See how you could win $1,000 worth of Denim and Supply clothing as well as a fashion shoot experience in NYC by entering into their Instagram contest (learn more here) and following them at @DenimandSupplyRL. Good luck!
PS Have a great weekend, friends!!
