Fashionista NOW: Acid Wash Denim Fashion Inspiration

Tired of wearing your usual jeans but don’t want to completely abandon them? Why not give the acid wash denim trend a chance to bring a bit of spunk back into your wardrobe?

Denim jeans are no doubt a global closet staple regardless of age, gender, season or geography.

Acid wash, a retro 80s trend gives the all too clean denim look a rugged appeal of well worn jeans. This year, it makes a predicted fashion comeback for spring and fall.

This denim trend in particular can inject a unique urban edge into any casual look without going over the top. With acid wash styling, it’s wise to treat it as a print so you can better organize the rest of your outfit around it.

They may come in subtle wash of faded blues, grays and blacks with the original darkest dye color concentrated around the seams and waistband area. Of late, acid wash denim gets a fresh update as it is seen to carry pretty shades of other colors like pink.

Since I’m partial to acid wash skinny jeans and jeggings (they’re such a quick go-to statement piece for any casual look), I’ve curated a list of lookbookers wearing their best acid wash denim jeans with that signature form flattering cut for your inspiration.

Let’s get a clue on how to style acid wash jeans and look super good:

Acid wash denim fact:

The term ‘acid wash’ is a misnomer as no acid is ever used in the process. Instead, the denim is washed with pumice stones and chlorine until it is bleached almost white.

Today, in place of chlorine, weak bleach (or potassium permanganate) is used to get the acid wash appearance.

So peeps: What do you think of acid wash denim? Is it just a recurring fad that you’ve no interest in or are you an acid wash loony fanatic? Would you wear any of these looks? Spill all in the comments below.
