Jeans Acidosis: the style of the 80’s September 3, 2009

From articles to photos online, celebrities wearing acid washed jeans and denim apparels are flooding. Acid washed has become the casual look of the moment. The ripped, faded skinnies are the stars favorite. From Miss Sixty to Balmain, ripped skinny styles rocked the fashion runways recently. The more ripped your skinnies are, the better. Famous stars were also spotted sporting distressed denims like Rihanna, Ashley Olsen, Nicky Hilton, and Lindsay Lohan.

This 80’s fashion has a dramatic comeback. Wearing them with studded high- heeled gladiators plus a fitted military inspired jacket definitely gives a statement. You can also wear them with your favorite casual tees, flat strappy sandals and pumps. For figure-conscious ladies who always care about their thighs and legs, this pair might not be perfect for you because the faded spots will highlight them even more. Opt for more subtle ripped skinnies with a stone washed style instead . If you are into a more dramatic and trendier look then the uber distressed one is the best for you.

Good news to those who are in a tight budget and hesitant to spend a lot for an acid washed, distressed leg pair, you can get yours via DIY (do it yourself, seriously). Start digging your closet now and do a little experiment to your old denim pairs. Splash a little amount of bleach/chlorine in them just enough to achieve the desired effect, grab a cheese grater and the rest will be history.

Love or hate it, this trendy fashion piece is a total head-turner. Bleached jackets, vests and shorts are also in, so why not try one now!
