Few looks evoke casual cool like stonewashed jeans, but get it wrong and you can quickly venture into 90s boyband territory. So how do you nail the stonewashed look and stay on the safe side of modern style? With so many cuts, fits and finishes on offer, it's never been easier to get an on-point casual look with mens stonewashed jeans
The best way to guarantee your stonewashed denim is on the money is to bag a pair with careful distressing. The rules this season are to go with knee rips - so that your denim looks ‘lived in and loved' rather than brand new. Simply add a statement printed Mens T Shirts and some chunky lace-ups and you're good to go .
Got a smart-casual event where you want to look the part but keep things mildly laid back? You're going to need to slicken that stonewashed look a touch, and the easiest way to do it is by adding a crisp shirt. Go for sharp Oxford fabrics or perhaps a button-down chambray shirts. Feeling dapper? A sporty blazer on top will be just the ticket.
Find your fit
The last - and easily most important - rule in making men's stonewashed jeans work for you? The fit has *got* to be right. Because we're dealing with lighter hues here, you're best off avoiding super-skinnies and going for a slim-fit or tapered-leg pair that creates a streamlined silhouette without being overly clingy.
And a final note? Turn up those cuffs to add an extra hit of new-season style interest.
