As a Denim Specialist at Liberty I hear this a lot “I’m too old to wear distressed ripped jeans”. My default answer is normally no of course you’re not!
But recently I was given a pair of FRAME Le Skinny De Jeanne with rips at the front and I did find myself asking a younger colleague that same question.
I do think that women whatever their age should embrace all trends, nothing should be out of reach just because of a number! However, If the jean or trend isn’t for your body shape then that’s a different issue.
The distressed jean trend is accessible to all ages, it’s just a matter of how ripped you want to go and what you team your jeans with.
See below these ladies have styled their distressed jeans with a classic shirt, blazer and accessorise with simple pearls and a scarf, giving a chic edge to a distressed trend. The rips are minimal but the shape of their jeans still suit their body shape which is the most important thing when dressing for all ages.
Boyfriend jeans look great when they are washed out and old so the odd rip or distressing just adds to the life of the jean. Be fussy with the amount of distressing and rips on your jeans and remember less is more….
Click & shop: Distressed boyfriend jeans
Click & shop: Distressed skinny, straight & boot cut
A simple slit at the knee can show just enough skin to make a skinny jean chic. Rips just above the heel at the back is a sexy place and a good way to show your heels off.
So just to recap, do you still think you’re to old to wear distressed jeans?……..
