Distressin’ Over Nothin’

Do not let anything but your clothes be distressin’ you this season.

Distressed denim, jackets, tops, etc. are a way to jump into this summer season, with a fun statement. You can distress just about anything, from tops to bottoms, and they serve as a versatile look for both women and men.

Whether you debut light distressing or heavy distressing, it adds a more punk, grunge look to your outfit, which is certainly in this upcoming season. Distressed crop tops, distressed denim, distressed jackets, distressed dresses, you name it, they have it.

Distressed denim, in particular has found its’ way back into our beloved hearts, and style icons of every age have been engaging in the trend. Distressing is a fun trend that is great to wear for every day casual wear, as well as a statement piece for a night out.

This is an all ages inclusive trend, as well as an all inclusive gender trend, for both males and females. Best part about it is that it is completely gender neutral! Great for everyone.

Not to mention, distressing can update an old article of clothing you never really thought about and is an easy DIY project! It’s not very time consuming, and can really do a lot to an old pair of jeans, top, jacket, or dress you were trying to sell at the nearest Plato’s Closet.

Stop distressin’ about your life, and start distressing your closet. This is a universally awesome trend that you should hop on board for!

Lilly Sarti did an excellent job, featuring nude tones and earthy all over her Spring and Summer 2017 collection. Sarti featured nudal tones in jumpsuits, dresses, etc., emphasizing how versatile this up-and-coming trend is.

 

The whole Kardashian-Jenner clan has jumped on this trend, often sporting nude two-piece dresses and midi-length body fitting dresses.

At La Peria’s Fall 2017 ready-to-wear collection party in Milan, model and fashion icon Kendall Jenner was caught busting out her nudes, wearing a plunging nude bodysuit, with silk satin nude tone skinny jeans and a nude tone cropped fur jacket.

 

Quit hiding your nudes and break them out this season! There’s nothing to be ashamed of.
