Acid Wash Jeans

Acid wash jeans are a real retro favorite. They were huge through the 80's, being worn with plenty of attitude and even more hairspray. Now they are frequently worn by celebrities and fashion icons, either dressed up for nights out or to make a casual everyday outfit that bit more exciting. The mishmash of acid colors is striking and flattering, making them a great alternative to normal denim trousers.

Women's acid wash jeans can be worn in a variety of ways. A bootleg style looks fantastic worn the vintage way, with a loose-fitting t-shirt and leather jacket. Sneakers are the traditional finishing touch, but the right sandals add a touch of glamour, and a bright red lip is essential makeup. It's warm, comfortable and stylish.

To dress up, opt for a very light pair in grey or light blue. Levi's offer a variety of shades in a slim-fitting design that flatters the legs. Team them with a ladylike chiffon blouse, a delicate necklace and some court shoes with serious heels for a look that'll take you from boardroom to tearoom.

One of the easiest ways to wear a skinny acid wash jean is a casual, slouchy look. Team some tight-fitting Silver jeans with a light-colored cable knit sweater and sandals, and don't forget a big structured tote in pastel pink or cream. For a more casual take on the same look, swap the heels for embellished pumps and accessorize the look with natural makeup or a brown smokey eye. Keep your colors soft and feminine—pastel colors look great—to really make the most of that striking acid pattern.

For juniors, acid wash jeans should take a boho theme. A slouchy grey t-shirt should be worn with a statement beaded necklace—think feathers, charms and gemstones–and some cute buckled ankle boots. Choose a wooden shade, such as burgundy red, to create a contrast to the acid. Bed hair, drop earrings and a fringe handbag finish the look and make it perfect for school or play.
