Make no mistake about it, we love us some jeans. Our go-to item for all things casual, denim jeans are a regular part of our wardrobe rotation as the possibilities for stunning outfits are endless. While light wash jeans were once the ultimate cool-girl item back in the day of boy bands and chokers, the tides have turned and fashion’s elite are rarely seen rocking anything but the dark wash. Of course, that’s not to say we should shun light washes all together. There are certain instances in which the paler shade totally works. For instance, pair a light wash jean with a plaid shirt during winter for a much needed pick me up. Dark wash jeans look simply fabulous with a vintage T-shirt, just as it does with flowy blouses in all prints and patterns. Our favorite way to rock light wash jeans? Make sure it’s a distressed pair and combine it with a simple tank top and leather motorcycle jacket. A pair of tough-girl ankle boots and a simple luxe gold chain necklace will seal the deal on this outfit to perfection. To take the look one step further, throw your hair up in an always reliable sock bun and finish off with a swipe of fierce lipstick.
