Acid Do Or Acid Don't

When I first saw the acid, washed out, faded jeans sneakily cropping up the fashion runway I freaked out. The least flattering type of jeans ever invented (and the cruelest to your...derrier excuse moi) is what’s in now! Yikes!

I cringed again when I saw them at TopShop the other day but I took a deep breath, picked my size, and tried them on. And to my surprise, they didn’t look as bad as I imagined. Actually, when I paired them with a fitted blazer and strappy heels, they looked quite decent.. Slightly Balmain-ish if I attach shoulder pads to the blazer jacket, but no I didn’t buy them because I’m convinced that this is just another short lived trend.

Anyways, if you choose to pull off this trend, for the love of god, don’t do the big hair, hot pink lipstick, and a matching washed out denim jacket combo! That would be an acid overkill.

never say never! and hey, isn't every trend short-lived anyway? i was born in the 80's i.e. never wore those things BUT i think that they make look neat with a spot on ensemble. and like some trends, i think this one suits the svelte crowd.

Love the 80's very very much.
But acid washed jeans, I don't.

The reason people were into the Balmais pair was because of the beautifull jacket. I believe people were into "the look" rather than the acid jeans themselves.
