As a longtime advocate for all things ripped, torn, and faded, I am happy to report that distressed denim is back in a big way for fall. To get some update inspiration for how to wear this coolly casual look, two of our always-chic stylists created outfits for each other, anchored with distressed jeans.
Pa on Rachel:
“I really enjoy playing around with different textures. I took this opportunity to style distressed skinny jeans with a more feminine top. A thick knit sweater keeps the look rooted in fall and complements the worn-in finish of the denim. To top it off, I put Rachel in pointed white boots and bold jewelry.”
Rachel on Pa:
“The soft, relaxed wash and perfectly worn distressing drew me to these jeans for Pa. They pair really well with the edgy feel of a fur and leather jacket. A sleek leather tote and black pointed boots look great, but can feel a bit too rough, so I rolled the jeans for just a hint of preppy style.”
