In the past months I had been checking out a lot of spring and summer 2018 denim collections, and the one thing that stuck to my mind was – hey, where have the ripped jeans gone?
I have also viewed some fall and winter 2018 denims already, and this thought continues. Especially for fall and winter – there were more clean washes than ever available, and only very few ripped or trashed jeans.
Generally spoken, distressed jeans, distressing details or rips, are still very present. Maybe more like a tiny rip here an there, and fraying at the hems and pocket seams. But overly trashed and shredded like in the last seasons, not so much. The exception is the skinny jean with the huge knee holes. Everybody will be wearing these in the next couple of months, but then it will be all about back to basic, clean washes, and classic looks.
I am not saying – forget your beloved ripped jeans – nope. All I am noting is that it’s time to add some “cleaner” jeans to your everyday denim wardrobe as well.
If you want to update your denim wardrobe, go for a pair in a darker or medium vintage-like wash. These will be your best choice for right now as well as next fall and winter. And let’s be honest, aren’t we all a bit overdosed on trashed jeans?!
Check out some non-ripped and cleaner wash jeans from:
Triarchy – Indigo High Waist jean, a beautiful and always trendy raw indigo wash made of sustainable denim
Parker Smith – The Bombshell Crop which is a superb fitting skinny made of the PS trademark Shaper denim
3×1 – Ruby Overalls, because overalls are always trendy and fun to wear
Levis – Wedgie High Waist Straight Jeans, one of the Levi’s most popular fits
Everlane – The Mid-Rise Skinny Jean, a dark classic always trendy style and wash
Topshop – MOTO Indigo Clean Rinse Straight Leg Jeans, a high rise with stretch
RE/DONE – High Break Flare Jeans, even the brand known for its rips and distressing details goes darker and cleaner
Trave – Cropped Straight Leg jeans with extra seams, if you love jeans with some details
And if you’re still not convinced – even the “queen of rips”, Frame, known for their trashed and shredded jeans, is “coming clean”!
