Katie Holmes was out in New York City, wearing a pair of really trendy multi-toned jeans.
If you look closely, you will realize that what seems to be patches aren’t really patches, but different shades of blue. This kind of effect can be achieved either by laser, or by covering up certain parts of the jeans while they are going through a distressing or fading process.
The look of these jeans is much more authentic than actual patchwork jeans.
The style is a cropped micro flare, featuring an unfinished frayed hem, and you can see that the hem is in the same kind of darker blue as the “patches”. Katie preferred to wear her jeans in a more slouchy way instead of tight fitting.
