Distressed aesthetics

Notice the distressed tattered denim which is making a comeback dynamically. Once upon a time youngsters wearing such stuffs were considered cynics and rebels. Brands like Levis, Diesel, Guess etc. made a huge profit by in cashing this uber young tendency of 'break free'. To break -then prevalent laws of decent clothing and carving a different identity was what governed youngster's choice in tattered distressed garment/outfits. This FAD continued for so long that it was given a status of a different style trend altogether. Initially what seemed to be an outlandish change, soon caught attention of not only teenagers but also grown ups. I am excluding decent blue denim jeans and white shirt combination from this category because that counts in classic evergreen fashion. It has been for so long within the fashion circles that fashionistas have almost stopped considering it an article of style. it is a basic necessity which every one has in the closet.

Coming back again to the denim outfitters, Jeans that was a casual clothing for daily wear is made to look extra ordinary and exaggerated by tattering it.
So the next time you see a torn pair of jeans don't start looking for sewing needle and thread to stitch it back. Instead, include one in your summer wardrobe . Go shopping! :)

hmmm... yeah. I remember some 4-5 years ago, there was this craze for discolored jeans they called 'mokey wash' or something. :P

Tattered denim jeans is interesting for sure.
But I actually have some friends who have worn the same jeans so many times that it actually has got tattered near the knees... :P

So, sometimes all you need to be fashionable is to be urself. :D

If I would have been myself, this world would have been so un-fashionable ;)- what an understatement :D Nevertheless the latest denim trend suggests cool hues like electric blue and steel Grey , black , white straight cut jeans. Distress is no more.Post has become pretty old ;)
