Julia Engel in Joe's The Icon Ankle

Distressed denim has always been “in” since its emergence during the grunge scene in the ’90s, but it seems this year it’s exploded once again! Just in time for summer there were so many distressed boyfriends hitting the market, but the classic skinny jean is never forgotten. A skinny that hits at or above the ankle will help keep you cool when the temperatures rise (and oh they sure have here in California) and distressing definitely helps, as well as giving you a laid back vibe. Vintage styles, for this reason, are awesome for summer! We spotted blogger Julia Engel in Joe’s The Icon Ankle in Terra, which is a pretty medium wash mid rise skinny with heavy hand sanding and tears at the knee. Julia goes the chic route, dressing up the grunge with a yellow fitted blazer, a classic tan leather handbag and a striped blouse. Julia lives in San Francisco, so this outfit is definitely great for looking summer-ready during those cool, crisp foggy days in the bay.

I’ve been quite the denim fanatic for several years now, and am happy to apply this passion to something that I can share with others. I am also a graphic designer/web developer and have done design work for two of the biggest designer boutiques in town, which is partly to blame for the 100 plus pairs of jeans I now own in my collection! It always fascinates me how much can be done with the denim fabric alone, and the constant innovations will always keep me hooked.
