Lookbook 11

LAZY WEEKDAYS

Old distressed denim will forever be a thing this time of year because not only is it a staple piece but it can be paired with damn near EVERYTHING. I really want to narrow in on the ladies that work 9-5 just to stay alive but had a rough night last night with tequila so now they’re confused on what to wear because of that crazy hangover headache.

Old distressed denim will forever be a thing this time of year because not only is it a staple piece but it can be paired with damn near EVERYTHING. I really want to narrow in on the ladies that work 9-5 just to stay alive but had a rough night last night with tequila so now they’re confused on what to wear because of that crazy hangover headache. Fear no more ladies because denim never looked this good.

I am always a sucker for the “I woke up like this” look. But the one misconception is that you can have that look with just any ‘ol thing in your closet! What was once worn for function, such as working in the mines or on farms, has now become a staple garment in American fashion, but with great differences. The original denim product was predominately manufactured as pants or overalls that were a stiff formed fabric, prior to being worn in. As jeans became more of a fashion statement, rather than worn as protection, the textile industry found new ways to process the fabric with more comfort and style. So allow me to introduce you to my forever go-to… ripped denim. I feel as though ripped denim (aka vintage denim) in particular gives you that edgy “idgaf” feel and I LOVE THAT!!! Similar to a dirty washed denim, the vintage wash is less focused on the distressing and more focused on creating an old-look to the denim. A vintage wash will have that worn in€ look strategically placed in areas of the denim where it would naturally occur if worn over a long period of time. So think of when you see denim that’s faded in certain areas.

But what I really love is when you combine ripped denim and vintage wash. I know a ton of retailers sell you jeans that already have rips in them – but there’s nothing better to going to your local Goodwill, finding a good pair of mom-fit Levi’s and creating your own distresses to it. Creating rips and tears along the thigh, knee and pockets allows you to incorporate your own taste to your new pair of jeans. You can’t really go wrong with pairing it with other pieces. My favorite is a good pair of washed up Chucks, oversized hoodie, and the classic Calvin sports bra or leotard. Because let’s face it, we can’t get enough of this miracle material. Until next time…

xoxo, B.
