Crimes of Fashion

These jeans are very distressed…

Over the years we’ve been policing, we’ve become pretty resigned to distressed jeans: to even accept them. Sometimes, a bit of distressing adds to the effect: it either creates that effortless, worn-in look, or it just makes the jeans look a little more interesting – a little less “here I am, in my very best jeans, that I’ve carefully ironed for the occasion!”

Other times, though… other times, it just ends up looking like this. These jeans are a little bit more than just “distressed” aren’t they? These jeans are freaking the hell out. They’re not “effortlessly worn-in”, either: in fact, a whole lot of effort has gone into make them look like they’ve been worn to death. (And these ones aren’t much better… )

For us, distressed jeans only really work when they actually look like the distressing could have happened naturally, over time, instead of looking like someone played a cruel joke on the wearer: like, they fell asleep somewhere, and woke up to find someone “hilarious” prankster had cut a giant hole in their best jeans. So, maybe something like this, say:

Blank Denim jeans These are by Blank Denim, and come highly recommended by The Fashion Police – and not just because they’re only $88, either. (They also do some non-distressed versions, which are worth checking out.)

As for the other fashion crimes we’ve arrested this week, well, it’s been a fairly quiet week on that front, but we would like to submit these shoes into evidence:

green fluffy shoes

We’re not sure why this “furry shoes” thing continues to be A Thing, but we remain ever grateful for the fact that they DON’T yet seem to be A Thing in the real world. Which is a bit of a shame, in some ways: can you imagine how much it would brighten your day to see people walking along the street with green furry feet? It’s almost worth letting these go free, just to make that happen…
