Ask Belle: Affordable Distressed Denim

Jul 6, 2015

Hi Belle,

I like the look of distressed, ripped up jeans.  Can you help me find a pair of distressed skinny or straight leg jeans that aren’t too destroyed?  My budget is less than $150.

Love your blog! Sera

A pair of distressed jeans can boost your casual wardrobe.  I own a pair that I picked up at 6pm.com, and I love wearing them with pretty blouses or graphic tees.  Here are a few pairs that meet your needs.

    Have you tried Gap’s girlfriend jeans? I am in love! They’re fitted without being too tight, and you get the ripped & distressed look without having actual holes; they’re patched in the back. But as far as I know they only come in the lighter color.

    I have the Banana Republic jeans and they fit great! The rise is pretty high, which I like. And if you can wait it out, BR has sales quite a bit.

The Range: Eyelet Tops for Summer

Airy eyelet fabrics are one of my favorite spring/summer looks. White is, of course, the traditional fabric. But white is tough to wear when you have a toddler, so let’s go with navy this summer.
