Trend-spotting - Distressed Denim

I remember when I was a teenager and I wanted to so badly wear jeans with a ripped knee I decided to buy a pair of jeans and literally cut two circles on the knee caps hoping to have that naturally worn out look. Little did I know that was not the way to get properly distressed denim. So there I was out one pair of guess jeans with ridiculous round circles over the knees and a slightly crushed ego after my attempt of trying to be a trendsetter in the 10th grade. Luckily these days, denim is available in every color, fade and all different amounts of distressed levels. I personally love a single knee tear like this pair but some other great alternatives are below. 

I love mixing feminine touches like a cap toe pump and pearl jacket with casual denim and edgier accessories like that cocktail ring. This is exactly how I would style a deconstructed denim yet chic look.


  1. I have to say, I'm still a little on the fence. But your outfit looks really smart. I'm always thinking I'll look disheveled, but the inspiration images look anything but. Will definitely have to reconsider my stance...
