Trends may come and trends may go, but denim is here to stay! To be precise, it is the distressed jeans that are all the hype these days! Yes, the same pair of jeans that says chic and laid-back at the same time!
The distressed jeans trend began in the 70s as a part of the Punk-rock movement. Slowly, it was also seen as a prominent symbol of the famous hard rock/heavy metal era of the 80s.
Pick up any fashion magazine of the Grunge era of the 90s and the 2000s and there it is! Distressed jeans.
Even though they have been around for quite some time now, most people find it to figure out what they can pair it with. The founders of the House of Tomar, Mallika and Devika, recently got featured in the Times Of India’s Entertainment Times, and are here to give you a sneak peek into their lookbook. Ripped and distressed denim may not rule the fashion trend chart but can never go out of fashion.
However, people are becoming a part of the #smartenup trend. The newest call-out for denim is loose and languid cuts with refined details like oversized smart casual pockets, classic trims and soft-colour are combined to maintain the #smartenup look.
