No lie, we love clean cut skinny jeans and crisp, tailored raw denim… but when it comes to summer living in NYC, we’re always down for a little extra AC in the jeans department. Distressed denim adds edge to any look, whether in light wash boyfriend style or in a punk-inspired black skinny cut. Here are some our favorite pairs of distressed jeans this summer.
Gals, we all have our favorite pair of jeans that we wish we could wear every day (as if we don’t actually do that… once in a while…*cough cough*). They show all the right curves, hide all the right flaws, and feel amazing even when we’re having a bad day. In celebration of those perfect fitting dream-jeans, we’ve put together two outfits around a pair of our favorite skinny jeans. One leands towards the flirty date night variety, while the other is a bit more rock’n’roll. Adapt this to your own to give them a stylish new lease on life.
Look 1: MiH Jeans Paris cropped mid-rise skinny jeans / Folded Lapel cropped jacket / J.Crew New Boy polka-dot cotton shirt / Stella McCartney Faux suede ankle boots / Joan Shades
Look 2: MiH Jeans Paris cropped mid-rise skinny jeans / Kain Classic Modal & Silk Blend Tank / Todd Lynn Yoruba leather jacket / Gold Hologram Satchel / Diablo Double Buckle Boots

If you’ve been with us for more that a few scrolls you know we’re into anything button-pushing and with a bonafide rock n’ roll attitude. The latest lookbook from R13 is that and more—much more! We love the fearless denim meets fully exposed skin looks (though we’ll leave it to model-babe Sophie Willing to get fully exposed). But beyond the flashiness and rockin’ appeal, we are really digging the great selection of colored denim in primary hues incorporated into the collection for spring. Definitely gives a whole new meaning to word bold! Check out the full lookbook bellow!

Ellus is reportedly the first premium denim brand founded in Brazil. Since the first time Denim Therapy introduced Ellus in 2008, this denim-driven label has garnered more attention outside of Brazil (as have many of Brazil’s fashion labels) than ever before. More euro-centric than brands like Colcci, Ellus’ strong history of appeal to the upscale streetwear set (with the right mix of glam) is spot-on for followers of fashion both north and south of the equator.
