acid wash jeans

What goes around comes around. Fashion is perpetually fascinated with throwback looks from past decades, and the spring/summer 2017 season is no exception. At Tibi’s S/S ’17 collection, we noticed one retro trend in particular: acid-washed denim that looks like it could have come straight from the ’80s. But instead of pairing it with clichรฉ pieces like neon graphic sweatshirts, the brand teamed the jeans with neutral, modern-feeling pieces. Specifically an army-green blouse with statement sleeves and a black-and-white top with a blazer. The on-trend items gave the ’80s jeans a thoroughly contemporary feel, resulting in cool looks that might be enough to convince naysayers to try the trend again.

  1. I’m not a fan of acid wash, and I will opt for other washes when available, but I would eagerly buy these jeans because of their hip bone rise, full cut and lack of crop. I would not wear length that hits the ground.

    I’m a little sad at this moment, though. My best features are my legs, hips and midsection. It’s easy to make me look like I gained 10 lbs or like I have been swallowed up in wide leg jeans. I’m not quite sure how to select the most flattering and versatile ones.

    LOVE the jeans in the pix above. Also the black/white top and jacket combo.

  2. As a true lover of all things denim…. Acid wash is a tough sell for me. Too many bad memories of the bad fitting jeans of the 80’s. But no doubt as denim fabrications have evolved since then I would give them a 2 nd chance in the right fit.
