The Denim Edit (Part III)

The Denim Edit Story on Martini On Heels would be incomplete, if I don’t talk about the king of the denim trends of 2016- distressed jeans. Be it skinny, boyfriend or cropped, we certainly, cannot do without those ‘holey’ distressed denims in our closet.

I will come to the styling part to it as well, but before that I would like to talk about something which often confuses many- the difference between the ripped and distressed jeans. Yes, both the terms for the fashion wizards doesn’t really mean the same.

Ripped jeans have fabrics rips, and it initially, started off as rips on the knees which is now seen everywhere.

Though, it is a very popular trend of the 80s but became even more popular by the 90s when grunge artists such as Kurt Cobain started wearing these.

However, the look of distressed jeans is actually achieved in the manufacturing process, and jeans are faded on the purpose.

There are different methods like stone washing, enzyme washing, acid washing, and sand blasting etc that are used to achieve the look. Interesting, right?

For me, styling my favourite pair of distressed jeans was super fun! And, there is absolutely, no dearth of ways in which one can style them. You can pair it with a simple tee or a blazer, an oversize shirt or a denim jacket (denim on denim)! However, I took the chic way, and paired it with a bardot top! Further, to add the oomph to my look, I couldn’t miss on the broad belt which never fails to deliver for me. Have a look, and do drop in your feedback below on this look!
