Distressed, slub-denim embodies a pioneering trend in designer jeans. Denim variances in both wash and tone bestow a signature one-of-a-kind look. While matching tonal jeans with an appropriate top takes little effort, creating an ensemble with faded jeans requires more thought. There's no rhyme or reason to obtaining a perfect outfit. Still, certain colors do work better. For a look that goes from casual to dressy, slightly tweak the color and style of your upper half.
White Burnout Tee
White burnout tees enhance the texture of an outfit. Combined with distressed jeans, form-fitting burnout tees add grunge flair. Pair your tee with a dark cami for a see-through revelation or choose a shirt with a delicate print to accent femininity. This look, completed with boots or sneakers, represents a toned-down version of motorcycle couture.
Silver Sequined Top
For happy hour at the bar, a silver sequined top ups the ante. Pair this dressy top with casual jeans to spice up a holiday mixer. Stay comfy in your broken-in favs while adding glitz from the waist up. No need to accessorize -- a silver top with matching ballet flats provides just enough zest. Be the envy of your tightly-wound friends by showing up to the party smartly dressed and comfy.
Back in Black
For an Olivia Newton John '50s look, throw on a black capped-sleeve tee. A classic staple to any wardrobe, the black tee provides room for creativity below the waistline. Tuck your matchstick jeans into knee-high riding boots and top off the look with a bomber jacket. The end result is a style not to be messed with.
Pink Cropped Tee
Show off that sexy six-pack with a cropped pink tee and sweater combination. If you're gutsy enough to pull off this flirty look, then bare just enough midriff to keep them guessing. Top it off with a fluffy cropped sweater and a cotton candy clutch purse. A cute pair of pastel sneakers finishes the masterpiece and adds the perfect amount of color to segue into spring.
