We all like a nice pair of jeans denim, don’t we?
This is one timeless trend that keeps evolving. It can be baggy or high-waist or skinny, not forgetting bell-bottom. However, the in-thing right now is the distressed version of the denim.
The torn-updamagedripped-off distressed jeans have found their way into the wardrobes of super-chicks. So, this is one of those trends you have to approach cautiously, dear mama you do not want to go visiting your son at school dressed in a pair of these ripped jeans, lest his buddies hit on you.
The beauty with this trend is that it can be classy, edgy or give you that super-tough appeal, depending on how you rock them. The boyfriend look is a big thing in Kampala. Distressed skinny jeans, a T-shirt and a pair of lace-up ankle boots – preferably low heel – are a classy combo.
The question is, how ripped should our jeans be?
That obviously varies from person-to-person but it takes a lot of courage to pull off that super-torn look with the knees and part of the thigh showing. You are better off picking the subtle shreds and let the shoes, light fabric tank top and jewellery do the talking.
When the sun sets, you may experiment with the cut-off denim shorts. These can be really short so, make sure your legs speak for themselves, lest you be judged. Harshly.
