Balancing Distressed Jeans
Denim has a long history in American, from old western movies to pop stars wearing distressed jeans. It’s pretty ironic to think that Leob Strauss, who later changed to Levi, an immigrant from Germany, created the first blue jean. The official birthday of “blue jeans” was May 20, 1873, when Strauss received the U.S.Patent No.139,121. Interesting fashion history don’t you think?
I’ll go more in depth on the history, styles and what to buy in a later post. I bought and received lots of denim for my birthday and the distressed jeans I’m wearing was one of them. To keep the look feminine and modern – I paired the jeans with a gorgeous lace top and minimal strappy sandals. You might recognized these sandals from my minimal shopping post, my lovely boyfriend gave them to me for my birthday.
The feminine details in this outfit, such as the top and gold accessories, really downplay the ruggedness of the distressed jeans. Depending on the overall look you’re going for it’s the items you pair with your jeans with that make all the difference. When styling distressed denim – balance is key; put thought in your pairing or you might end up look sloppy instead of cool and laid-back-chic.
