Is distressed clothing a moment of the past?


Now that 2018 has graced us, is it out with the old distressed clothing look that is so effortless in exchange for putting in real routine performance?

Distressed jeans

I was watching my instastories the other day and one of my favourite style bloggers casually mentioned that distressed jeans are a no, no now and to be honest, it’s kept me awake at night ever since.


I can’t get my head around it, I’m a huge fan of the distressed look. What are we supposed to do with our beloved ripped knee skinnies and the raw hemmed t’s? This SUPER affordable detailing can make everything look good; no make up Mondays and ripped jeans is not just an “instamood” it’s become my lifestyle.

If you’re like me and not ready to put down the distressed clothes just yet, these gems are for you.


Curve Blue Distressed Fray Hem Skinny Jeans – New Look

I love everything about these jeans; the skinny structure definitely compliments a curvy frame. The shade of blue I’m very much into and I think this is the right amount of distressed to carry us through 2018.

Plus Isabel Distressed Pencil Denim Skirt – Boohoo Plus

My friends, denim skirts are on the rise this year and I’m not mad about it! This skirt has major distressed detailing and finishes off with an edgy raw hem. See, it’s not over.


Cream Wash Distressed Denim Shirt – River Island

This has a real vintage feel and looks great paired with the white trousers, I personally can see myself wearing this with a deep blue denim pair of jeans and a red lip – the feels, ahhh. This isn’t plus size however it does go up to a UK 18.


Distressed Cropped Hoodie – Monki

I’m new to Monki as I’ve recently discovered it provides clothing for us fluffy girls too. I would love to see this distressed sweater with an oversized white shirt underneath, paired with some cropped trousers and a chunky pair of kicks.
