10 Must-Have Distressed Jeans

Original post here

Anyone else have a parent or grandparent who always wonders why you paid money for jeans with holes in them?

Distressed denim wasn’t something I was always a fan of, but now I absolutely love it. Can’t get enough of it. Once my bank account grows, I’d love to add a pair of white and black distressed jeans to my wardrobe.

The key is to make distressed denim tasteful and put together. My favorite combo is distressed denim and a blazer. Another tip is try them on in the store. The distressing and holes might look different on you than how they appear on a model or mannequin.

Are you a fan of distressed denim? Have any recommendations? Tell me in the comments below!

    Hi Ellen, a question, how do you get that widget with all the jeans in your post?

      Hi, Nathalie! I use the ShopSense by ShopStyle to put together the widget. I put the products in the widget, and then I copied the HTML code into the post. Let me know if you have any other questions!

    I really like the distressed denim that Madewell makes, they always fit like a glove.

      Good to know! I love Madewell denim but haven't tried any distressed styles yet. Thanks, Alex!

    I've never been a huge fan of distressed jeans, but recently I found an old pair of boyfriend fit one's in my closet and I haven't been able to get enough! They are seriously the softest thing ever.

    I don't mind the ones you have on but I'm not a big fan of the jeans with huge holes in them. Especially the shorts when they have them!
