It’s time to start shredding and beating those jeans up because this Spring will be all about ripped,distressed and painted jeans. I recall this being popular a little in 2005 but this kind of distressed look will be more reminsce of 90’s grunge with holes in the knees and taking it a step further. The great thing about this trend is you have control over how crazy you want your denim to look. This can be a very sexy and effortless looking trend, but beware of taking it too far and making it look like you aren’t wearing pants anymore. I also am loving paint splashes on jeans. This is a trend definitely in the beginning stages but I came across a pair in the store and I wanted them so bad. Alexander McQueen has some that I am lustin over and I think if you are going to throw some paint at your own denim try it with a cropped jean.This can definitely be a DIY project with an old pair of jeans. But although it looks effortless there is a way to do this right. I always mess up mine so thanks to Glamour magazine, I found some tips on how to distress your own jeans.
