Light Washed Denim

Designers showed a lot of light washed denim for spring. I think it's more suitable for summer paired with the sheer fabrics, florals and all the romance.


Alexander Wang showed denim with denim, which I would not like unless it's done in a light color. It somehow looked right. Christopher Kane kept things raw with a cropped denim jacket and some see through. Karen Walker's denim dress is a bit darker than the other two and a safer choice.


I don't think this trend will get overly popular, but with these young and talented designers, which collections have been praised, it's certainly going to be tried. We've already seen a few celebs wear it, like Sophia Bush, who stepped out in light wide leg jeans. It is a hard look since it's not as slimming as darker shades, but definitely more interesting for those sunny days.

Hmm. I've seen some nice ones in Topshop. I think its a harder denim look to pull off [my mum says they make your thighs look wider] but probably have the same summery effect of white jeans.

I am a huge fan of the washed light-blue denim trousers! I own the greatest jeans like that and they make the perfect spring outfit with a white shirt, flip-flops and a straw trilby hat!

I remember how good my cousin looked in light washed denim when we were kids and how dork I looked in it. I sworeI'd never use it again. We'll see..

I think it's only half a year from when that Kane collection debuted that I'm actually moving toward liking it...

I though I would hate this trend but for some reason I can't stop daydreaming about a cropped denim jacket!

usually I hate denim paired with denim but Alexander Wang has created something that doesn't look tacky or ugly
love it
and the whole Karen Walker look is so cute

I like the pictures, but ithink in general, light wash denim is oh so tricky. It can prove to be the not most flattering on a person once the color has faded away. Although these looks are convincing me to maybe think otherwise...
p.s.check out my new post!

I love light washed denim, perfect for summer/spring. Kate Bosworth wears them wonderfully!

I love the Karen Walker look. Hmm denim-on-denim is a tough look to pull off, so I personally hope it doesn't come back 'in' (it was in the 80s and 90s, unfortunately lol)...
Long time not posting...is everything ok?

i LOVE THE VERSATILE denim..it can be frayed and treated and can beat tutu in its froth and can compete leather for its rawness....viva la denim
